Fire and Ice

Exciting News! Recently the camera that i was using to post pictures malfunctioned and went to digital camera heaven and so did mine. So, I was very distressed with all the trips coming up and what not. My mom and dad are beautiful and got me a camera for graduation!!! It is wonderful and perfect! It takes beautiful pictures and so now I can photograph my trips and be more efficient on my blog!

This week began with a fire on our beautiful mountain. Maybe I am a little off here but when the forest service has warnings of "VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER" do you think you should go start a controlled burn on the mountain? If they should of or not they did and now there is a big fire and our mountain is closed at the moment. It is very cool looking at night it looks like lava is flowing down the mountain, good thing there isnt.

You may be wondering what this is but let me explain. Recently Allison and I have been wanting to do more exciting random things instead of just sitting around wondering what to do. Tuesday we decided to make Ice Cream Sculptures. It was an excellent idea but extremely cold and painful. Also, with the weather now reaching above 100 degress the ice cream didnt stay frozen for very long. It was fun though, and in case you cant tell mine is a christmas tree. We also had many other exciting plans but with the heat our energy was gone, I hate arizona in the summer!

Allisons is a truck, yeah I didnt see it either but we did try!

Today is graduation! I am leaving home tonight with my brother I will be sure to post when I get home about all our lovely adventures! Thank you all for all your support and help!

Graduation, Among Other Things!

Hello! It has been a long time since my last post and I apologize. Things have been a little crazy! Many things came to an end in my life this week. Infact it seems as if everything in my life came to an end this week. I am completely done with highschool! I quit my job and my last day was friday! Come thursday night I am leaving home and will not return (at least not for more than a couple days) until August. So lots of changes in my life and with all those changes my blog has been neglected! I will try to be better and I will for sure post pictures about my trips this summer. I am going to back east to visit Stacy with my brother Preston on thursday! Then off to Utah with my mom then off to Rome, Greece, and Turkey! It is going to be an incredible summer and I will try my best to post as much as I can! I am afraid with all that going on I do not have any new artistic creations to show you but I do have some pictures of graduation festivities.

This is a dress that my brother in law Doug and Stacy got me for my graduation! I LOVE it and think it is georgeous!!!! I have been wearing it as much as I can! Thanks Stacy and Doug!!!

These are some of my favorite people in the world!
They are Allison, Me, Jason, Dustin, and Mandy!! Allison and Mandy are Juniors and me and the boys are graduating!

Me and the girls!!!

Good Ol' Dustin!

Real graduation is on Thursday! It feels good to be done and it is a little nerve racking to now have to start completely over in college and with work and with friends and what not but I am ready... it is time! Talk to you all again soon!
