We starting things off with a bang by Gettin Hitched...then off to Sacramento (see post below) Our fridge was covered all summer with other lovey doveys with the same great idea. Weddings galore! After our garden gathering in Orem, we headed out to Antelope Island with the Listons. Great moves and the best dance party occurred and Gabe and Ellens georgous wedding. We toured on the Conference Center Roof top Garden. Gordo celebrated his 24th birthday with buddies coming over to our place and modeling overly large shirts....only large shirts.
We bought a CSA share from the Logan Farmers Market. Our farmer brings us weekly produce clear until December. We headed on down to Moab to visit our dear friends. We ran the raging daily, ate at Milts, visited the garden and farmers market, hiked with the Davis' clan, and camped (or actually slept in the back of Cliff in the World Wide parking lot). We asked ourselves why again didn't we move down here for the summer? Oh yeah because I didn't want to share my hubby with Cataract. We made numerous trips down to Orem for some family fun. We feasted each time on mama's good cookin and had some rallying volleyball matches in the park. We accomplished the first RAW ride. A 72 mile Ride Around the Wellsvilles. This wouldn't be possible without the generosity of a pregnant Abby and her sweet ride.
We invited Jodie and Kodey on a Mayfield adventure that turned out to be them completely taking care of us. Food, shelter, and 4-wheelin fun. Bud and Liesl joined us for a day at Palisade Lake. We failed miserably at taking the Hughes rock climbing in maple Canyon. As soon as they hit the road, we found the easy climbs. Timpanogus, Logan, Salt Lake, and Jordan River temples were added to our visited list. I spent a day at Lagoon with the fam taking the kids on the whirly rides. We tore it up at Newton Dam and Clarkston behind the boat. I signed up for my first ultra race, luckily due to dangerous snow conditions it was shortened greatly. Gordo decided the morning of to run the trail with me. I attended the Wood Family Reunion at Island Park. We enjoyed great meals, turbulent tubing, Old Faithful, and bridge jumping only after the brave Henry jumped first.
What a grand summer, and I was thinking that I didn't want it to end, but now I can rest assured that we spent our summer wisely playing, laughing, loving. I'm ready for the next slightly chillier chapter to come.
Here I go again tryin to figure out these collages. I just get so bad at updating this thing and I have fun photos that describe our adventures better then I could with words. They literally paint a picture in your mind. We went to Sacramento for our first vacation as the Mr. and Mrs. Gordo Wood Family. Over a ten hour drive flew by with Gordo at the wheel. We had delicious treats and when we weren't chatting, we listened to Arctic Drift. When we hit the summit at Lake Tahoe...SNOW! AHHH we were coming to California for warmer weather I thought. We were stopped for quite awhile because all cars required chains or 4 wheel drive. Luckily we had the big white truck.
On to Sacramento....and there we fell in love with the Mariott, Capitol Park, Towering Trees, and interesting people. Sacramento was a blast....many people questioned, "Why Sacramento?" We thought Sacramento was such a neat place and enjoyed ourselves completely. We scraped on our bikes all over the city and were right at the 200ft mark from the finish line at the Tour of California bike race. We visited the zoo, and always found something going on at Capitol Park.
We also got to visit Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Although snowy and completely drenched, you couldn't find two happier tree huggers in the world. We also visited some fun thrift stores and learned about frog jumping races in Calaveras County
Heading to San Fransisco was another day adventure. We rode across the Golden Gate Bridge on our bikes....along with 600 other people (we thought we were so original) We ate great food, felt completely lost in this huge city, and had a theft of my scraper. Not gonna get us down though. With one bike and miles away from our parked truck across the bridge, we settled for a scenic tour on top a convertible bus.
We also ended our trip by helping at the state Tree Climbing Competition. The two of us helped all the little kiddies climb a small tree. Talk about exhausted...yeah-we'll wait awhile.
Sure love this boy and sure am glad to have all the rest of my adventures with you Gordo Wood

Three weeks, three days, and 6 hours late, but here's a pic from our wedding day! It was absolutely perfect! Gordon Brockbank Wood and I were sealed in the Logan Temple on May 14th 2011! We were surprised and surrounded by family, loved ones, and friends. We had a brunch at Hamilton's, married at 2:15 and had a reception at Edgewood from 5:00-7:00. Everything was beautiful and we worked quickly and diligently to pull this off in 7 weeks! Two weeks later we had a garden gathering in my parents backyard and amid rain, bad weather, and all, people stayed visited and ate great food! Not even a little rain could bring us down! I am so grateful for all that helped and so extremely madly in love with that Gordo!

I have the priviledge of working up beautiful Logan Canyon at Beaver Creek Lodge. I rent out 2011 ski.doo's and help peeps that are staying here at the Lodge. A few weeks ago my boss said it was time for me to get a better idea on what I was trying to sell over the phone.
Gordo and I got to be on TV for a total of 30 seconds.(autographs to be signed later), and then we hit the trail for an adventure ride to St. Charles in Idaho. The trails pick up right from the lodge, so that's why this is the ideal spot to put a lodge! We got to wear top notch Klim gear and felt radicle.
Snowmobiling is much tougher then I anticipated. You gotta get your whole body involved! Moving from side to side and careful, don't get scared now...climbin up those hills! I had such a great time laughing as Gordo got stuck in some trees. He really started sweatin digging himself outta that TREE WELL! That's real snowmobiling though-trying hard stuff, getting, stuck, and having a ball!
