A day in the canyon

When my family was all in town we decided we would have breakfast up the canyon. Afterward, we went rafting down the Provo river. It was a blast! It was so fun to take all the little kiddies down the river!! It turned out to be such a big success with my family that we decided to do it with the Riley side. We had a lot of fun with them as well! Missy and Savanna were scared to death which was really crazy and funny. We did nearly die a few times and that made it a little risky and super funny because we kept running into trees and people. We had a lot of fun.

We went on a little Riley family vacation and had such a good time! We drove up the coast and saw some rainforests, waterfalls, and the little town of Forks (for you twilight readers) all on the Olympic peninsula. As you can see below, the scenery was so beautiful. Next was Sequim, where they had lavender farms and pick your own berry fields. It was pretty neat. Then we took a fairy into Seattle. This was so cool! It was so neat to see Seattle for the first time! The view was incredible. We went up the Space Needle and Lorna almost had to lay the smack down on a Parking Attendant, for those you that thought I had attitude, let’s just say Lorna is giving me a little competition. We ate at Ivars, and walked around Pike Place Market. You would not believe what a cool market this was. This is the market of markets. For those of you that know what a good cook Troy is, he was dying thinking of all the meals he could make with the local ingredients! It was so cool. Then on to Olympia for me, this was the highlight. It was so cool to finally see the place that Troy’s family talks about so much. A lot of things had changed since they had lived there, but I loved trying to picture Troy and Lorna there as kids. All in all we ate some dang good food and saw a lot of things that I will never forget. Thanks Lorna for making this trip possible. I realize that I look like I wore the same outfit everyday so just for the record I brought several outfits.

Nicey Nicey's

Ok, so Racquel did this on her blog and I cracked myself up thinking about memories of her so I thought I would give it a try.
Here are the directions:
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.
Just to clarify, "Nicey Nicey's" are what my dad would call it when we had to say nice stories or things about each other.
