The Elevator Only Goes Up

We went and saw the Oquirah Mountain Temple this morning. SOOO gorgeous probably one of my new favorites. I hope we're able to do a session there. Anyway we had the stroller so we had to keep skipping the stairs and heading for the elevator. We'd been on this one elevator to go up and down to different places and we had talked and joked with the gal that running the elevator. The line to see things were moving so slow that we finally had to go so Zach could make it to work on time so we go to this elevator and the girl pushes up. Zach says, "Actually we need to go down so we can get out". The girl replies, "Oh, sorry I didn't know. This elevator only goes up though". We both pause for a minute waiting for to say she's joking...nothing. I say, "What do you mean it only goes up?" Zach and I are just waiting to laugh because how silly would an elevator be that only goes would never get back down, besides that we'd been down on this exact elevator. So she tells us again it can only go up and we'd have to go to the other elevator to get down. I can't even do justice to how confused we were. Then the girl explains if she takes us down we'd run into the line and we wouldn't be able to get out because it was going in not out. Zach and I just died laughing. I can't even do the story justice but it was pretty dang funny.

Gone Shishin'

We went fishing up at Jordanelle. We had a really fun day. It was nice to just sit and relax outside. We caught one fish in the morning but our line broke when we tried to get him out of the water. Then we didn't see anything else the rest of the day. I must say that is alright with me though, mostly we just bring the fish home and they sit and stink in the fridge until I throw them out. Maybear does this funny thing where she sticks her tongue out if she feels the wind or you fan her. The wind was pretty much blowing the whole time so her tongue is sticking out in all of our pictures.Zach tying the fishing line...I kept getting it stuck in the bushes so he had to tie a few. Oh well...practice makes perfect right? Maybear loved wading in the water. She got upset when I wouldn't let her sit in it. Notice the tongue still sticking out.
Zach's "manly" fishing picture. It's funny because he's limping around today because his legs got burned so bad...not so manly now eh?

Zach's B-Day

Zach took the day off for his birthday which was super good. We went to The Living Planet Aquarium in the morning but I forgot to put the memory card back in the camera so we couldn't take pictures. Instead we printed some coloring pages off their website and colored them for your viewing pleasure. Then Zach and I went to the driving range while Zach's mom watched Maybear. Oi! Was it hot.
Afterwards Zach's mom took us to dinner at Chili's Maybear screamed the entire time. And I mean screamed as in high pitch screaming not upset screaming. She could hear her voice echo in the restaurant which she always thinks is cool.Then we went to the park for some ice cream cakes with Zach's and my family. I made the cakes and I have to say it's so worth making them rather than buying an expensive one from DQ. They don't look as appetizing but I think they tasted just as good.I decorated the house for Zach but of course I didn't think to take a picture. Instead here is Maybear playing in the clean up mess.

July 4th Festivities

We had a fun July 4th, we went to a parade, had a yummy bbq with my family and went to fireworks with Zach's family. In the morning Maybear was grumpy due to lack of a nap waiting for the parade and then of course she fell asleep once it started. In the evening she was grumpy again due to lack of a nap waiting for the fireworks and then of course she fell asleep right before they started. Oh well maybe she'll catch some parade and firework action on the 24th.
