Every time a new season comes, I feel like the change, makes me want other changes in certain areas of life. We have some fun changes come up and it feels so good!

We sold our boat, and got a new one! Pictures are to come later! It's a Master craft X-30. We found it in Reno, for such a great deal, we couldn't pass it up! Who do we think we are? Who buys a boat when they should buy a house? Us of course! We took it to Lake Powell for a week over Labor Day. One of the best decisions we've make thus far in life;) We loved our old boat, but it wasn't made to do the things we wanted to be doing, like wake boarding, and surfing. Wow, what a difference this new boat is! I've wanted to do most of the driving, which is also a change! I wanted to learn how to do the hitch, work all the buttons,and everything... who knows why! It's been so worth the investment, and we love to do it together, and can't wait to do it with our kids! It's always a fun time!

A day after Lake Powell, Travis headed out to Milwaukee, for 3 weeks for training, on a new position at work. Ever since Trav started working at Dentrix, he has wanted this position. He was told to apply for it a few months ago, and waiting to hear back was so stressful, but I've never seen him that happy since the day he married me!;) So now he is a field rep for Henry Schien, and travels around Utah to Dentist's offices to try to get them to let him be their rep. It totally fits his personality, and he is so motivated. His office is at home now, so that's been great! I went out to visit him in the middle of training, and we went to Chicago. I LOVED it! I can't wait to go back! It reminded me so much of NYC, but smaller, and soo much friendlier!

So Travis got home on Friday, and Sat we went to go trail running up AF canyon, and at the last second, decided to hike TIMP! It was such a beautiful day, and I'd never done it. I for sure didn't realize how far it was, and we were booking it up! When we were about 15 min from reaching the peak, down came this guy and his 18 year old daughter. We were so tired, and we stopped to let them by, and as they got closer, we heard her just chatting her heart out, and walking so fast, and not even looking at where she was going. She was pretty severely autistic, and just darling. It was soooo not a good time to see her up there bouncing around the mountain and not watching her steps. It is seriously sketchy at the top, and I felt like a wuss compared to her!

I'll never look at that mountain the same! I pretty much kicked it in the growing... felt good to conquer it! And we are still soar!

Next I'll post pics of all these adventures!
