Some spare time... For now...

Really?! Almost a year ago was when I posted last? Got some catching up to do... First and foremost:

I'm getting fat, but for a good reason! We've got a little BOY baking away, he'll be here in December! It's been a long wait for him, but we couldn't be happier.

Now back to catching up... I chopped 1 foot off of my hair and donated it in October 2011.



My little sister Ashley married Steve Stringham December 17, 2011.

Went to a circus in January.

Found out we were pregnant April 1, 2012.
(In Kip's defense I had just woken him up with this stick in his face)

Went to China with the Whetton's in April/May.
Us at the Great Wall.

Jess, Steven, Kip, and I in Tiananmen Square.

Ate some pretty crazy things... 

... more at the Great Wall. Probably our favorite place.

Met some original bound foot women.
(with Kip's sister Bri and her boys Trent and Garret) 

This food is more up my alley... There were six of us and we ate every last bite.

Spent Memorial Day weekend at our cabin, relaxed, rode horses.

Of course getting in plenty of boating.
July was crazy busy.
It was not acceptable that our first time on the water was July 3rd though...

Lake Powell.
We slacklined between the houseboat docks. And yes, a few made it across.
Amber had the best form by far.

Kip made it.

Clint made it. (Not this go around, but another time)

Kelli came so close...

Adam made it too!

Surfing in the rain.


Rachel and Baby C.

Our home for the week. Makin' Waves.

 Watching the boat click over to....

500 hours!

Met this little fella on Monday, July 16th.

Flew to Vegas for Mattie & Nate's wedding, July 21st.
We go way back. Part of the best soccer team EVER! Rebels for life!

Threw one of my best friend's, Rachel, a baby shower on the 28th.

And now you're up to date with our life, for the most part.

I honestly thought I wouldn't have any fun on this 'business trip'
Boy was I wrong!
We got to Branson Saturday afternoon and decided to go do the Branson Zipline.

Rode up the trail in this beast.

Walking across the rope bridges

Seriously fun times
Now on to 'business trip' stuff

The showroom. Welcome to Tracker Country.

Testing out the water

Product testing in Dogwood Canyon
Had 6 of these for people to try out. Random.

Meet and greet
For any fishing fans, THE VanDam and Snowden

Fred's Marine crew with the man himself, Johnny Morris (center)
(he owns Tracker and Bass Pro Shops)

The Showboat Branson Bell
Dinner cruise that included two shows and the best fireworks display I've EVER seen

Us girls got to go to the spa, lounge by the pool, and go on morning runs around the valley.

Such a beautiful place

We were so spoiled! We ate some pretty delicious food, were treated like royalty, and were given so many gifts it was hard to pack it all home. 

I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't that.


Me, Amber, and Rachel
The 3 amigas
We did the XTERRA Triathlon as a team

And we took first place in our division
(We were the only girls team in the long course division)

Oh, and Lance Armstrong was there too. He took 5th overall
