What a way to start summer..

So last night was the first night of summer, and it was also my birthday party. It was very fun! My family and I played outside games (ex: throwing water balloons, badmitton) and When we were throwing water balloons, I had the last balloon... and since it was my birthday party, my little brother Rusten let me hit him.. Ya, it soaked him! ha. So then we played Encore (SUPER fun game!) and then some friends showed up and we watched Forever Strong (which means that is my second time watching it, which means it is a WAY good movie!).
Sheena and Me.
My mom, Me, and Sheena Right as people were showing up! :)
Missy, Emily, Me, Kallie, Presley! I love these girls!
The PARTY!! haha.
My Birthday Cupcakes!!
The Boquet of Lilacs Rusten got me for my birthday!
The picture frame my YW leader Kristine got me!
The YUMMY fudge Doug got me for my b day!!

It was a SUPER fun party.

So today I woke up and had YUMMY french toast with vanilla syrup.. and then my mom and I started cleaning windows. It was pretty fun.. I got tan. lol. Anyways, then I see the mail lady in her jeep and I was like "Mom, I'm gonna go get the mail" and I ran to the mailbox... because I didn't get a letter from Elder Austin Kirk Egbert (my missionary/ boyfriend. ha) last week because I am pretty sure it got lost in the mail! ha. So I opened up the mailbox... and there it was.
The letter from this week!! WOOHOO!! I started jumping for joy and I couldn't help but smile (and sing)!
This is Austin! He is the best! I miss him... but I am SO proud of him!

On to a different subject... ha. So it was super warm today. So me and Rusten went and put a sprinkler under the tramp and got in our swimming suits and jumped on the tramp! It is SO fun! anyways... So we were having a knee war and I decided to jump SUPER high and land on my knees and when i landed.. you think the tramp would kind of absorb the bounce so it isn't such a hard hit when you break through the trampoline... but oh.. no, no.... it doesn't!! ha. I landed on the tramp and ripped a hole in the middle and fell to the ground and springs flew off and i got all scraped up, and I think it did something to my ankle... because it kills! So I told my mom and she told me that the tramp was like 12 years old or older.. and then Rusten told me there was a few loose string things on the tramp so then i was like, "Wow... I must have hit the loose threads just right.." haha. So now we need a new tramp... so then it will be new and we won't have to worry about any loose threads! hahaha.
See the hole right in the middle? haha. Ya.. that is what the tramp looks like now.
So it was quite the way to start my summer vacation! ha. It was fun though.
And then i just got a call from my mom and she said she was on her way home from her triathalon meeting and her suburban quit and she can't start it... so she is stranded. So I would go get her if all the cars weren't gone! haha.
We all just need to look at the positive outcomes when things happen! It makes life so much more fun and easier. ha. :)

It is such a good show... everyone should watch it.. it is inspiring! I might just have to go buy it. ha.

When we were driving there... which by the way it took us 7 HOURS because we stopped everywhere, so my mom decided we aren't going to Nauvoo anymore because it would take too long.. anyways.. so I was bored while riding in the car and I saw my sisters glasses so i put them on. They are purple and so cute! ha.

Then we went and picked up me sister JoDee from Utah.. and then we finally got to Wyoming.. and did i mention we stopped like every gas station and everything. haha.

Day filled with suprises!!

So today started out with waking up to my mom telling me I have to leave in 5 minutes! It was hectic, and it was my brother's fault.. so I was mad at him. Then I get to school and I start reading a book called "Stand A Little Taller" and I open up to the page that talks about how you shouldn't hold grudges on anyone and how you should be nice to everyone.. and it made me realize that I was mad at Andy for a stupid reason.. So now when I am looking for advice I open up that book! It is VERY good!

Also yesterday it was Andy's birthday! We had a dinner for him and then we went and saw Wolverine!! It was a great show!! Very funny.
So today at cheer we were working on full downs in stunting.. and my flier was coming down and punched me in the nose, and it started bleeding really bad, and it bruised right away. But I am still alive so it's ok! And cheer was very exciting today so that made up for it.
In school we did our max outs in strength and conditioning and I squated the most anyone has squated this year... maybe longer! I was SO excited.
So just remember... even if your day starts out crappy, it can always end with many funny stories and great suprises. So always smile! :)
