Fourth of July at the Beach!

So this year's 4th of July was really fun! Skylar took a day off of selling and we got to spend the day together! First we started off by sleeping in (not like we don't already get to do that, but it was still nice). Then we got our things together, had the guys over for grilled cheese sandwiches and we were off to the BEACH! :) It was perfect! The weather was just right and I was really surprised how similar a lake beach is to the ocean beaches. The sand was soft and the water was the perfect temperature! It was also nice because there was no salt to deal with, and no seaweed! Two bonuses right there! The guys had fun throwing mud at each other and building sand castles (do boys ever grow up?). I of course was thrown into the water by Skylar like a million times, he thinks I'm like a toy or something!? Haha, but all in all, we got some sun and had a great day! We finished up the night by going out to dinner with the office and watching a fireworks show! Yay for 4th of July!

This boy LOVES the water!
 Check out the farmers tan! Haha
 The group! 
Little boys at heart!
 Would you even know that we're brother and sister? He's SO tan!

Fun day with friends and family :)

Michigan fun :)

      Wow has the summer gone by fast. Only 3 weeks from now and I'll be in India! I can't wait! But as of lately I've been pretty busy and so has Skylar. We've moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan from Indiana and it's been good so far.
 Who knew 2 people could have so much stuff! Whoops :)
Dinkis likes to help me pack up too!
Grand Rapids is a neat little city, although I haven't seen very much of it. The cool thing about Michigan is you'll have the city, and then you'll have beautiful forests close by, lakes in every direction, and even beaches! Who knew? Beaches in Michigan!!

 So it's been fun exploring the area and finding things to do. The newest thing the guys like to do is go bowling. I think we've gone like 3 times since we've been here! Haha, gotta find ways to stay entertained I guess.

I was able to go to a 2 week Paul Taylor dance intensive in Ann Arbor. So I hopped on a train and headed out to Ann Arbor. The intensive was at the University of Michigan and it was fun to explore a new campus. It is so big, I couldn't believe it! All in all,  it was wonderful and I learned so much. My body was dead by the end of it, but it was well worth it. It was fun to meet new people and because the group was so small, we really got to know each other! While I was gone Skylar survived, of course I came home and the house looked way worse than when I left it. Haha, guess I should've expected that!

So I only have a couple of weeks out here and then it's back to Utah and off to India! I am getting really excited, but I'm realizing how much I need to do before I go! I better get to it! :)
