1 Year Anniversary in Park City

It's been 1 year?! It's crazy for me to think I have been married to Dustin for 1 year. It has gone by so fast and I am loving it! Dustin recently started his new job at a CPA firm here in Idaho falls, and our anniversary was on a Monday so we celebrated our anniversary over the weekend in Park City. Friday morning we got to go pick up my mountain bike!!! It took me forever to finally decide on which one I wanted, and I LOVE it!
After getting my bike we were on our way to Park City! It was our first time ever going so we were pretty excited. He won't admit it but I know Dustin hates traveling with me because I get VERY anxious and antsy in the car. So it was a long 4 1/2 hour drive for both of us :) We stayed in the Gateway Resort. It was super nice! I could've moved in and lived there I loved it so much. While checking into the resort, a guy gave us some ideas of things to do around town and asked us to come to a meeting Saturday morning that told us more things we could do in town and we would get free tickets to the Olympic Park. With the meeting only being an hour long we decided it would be fine to go.
So we got settled into our room and decided to go into town and eat dinner. It was delish! We had Thai food (for my first time). I'm a very picky eater so I was surprised that I liked it!



It was beautiful! After eating dinner and walking around a bit we went back to the hotel to hit up the pools and hot tubs! They had like 7 different pools and hot tubs and a few saunas. We tried them all out.
Saturday didn't start out so wonderful...The resort didn't serve breakfast so Dustin and I were on our way out to get something to eat and make it back to our meeting at 9:30. When we got to the car we had a lovely surprise!

A flat tire! Dustin hurried to put the sweet donut on and we had to find a place to get our tire fixed! We dropped the tire off to be fixed while we were in our meeting. So we got to our appointment at 9:30 and the lady said it was going to be 1 1/2 hours instead of just 1 hour. Dustin was extremely annoyed by now but we still went through with it.
Instead of the meeting just being like a tour of the resort and telling us about activities, it was a salesman trying to get us to buy a timeshare. He was SO annoying! I thought Dustin was going to punch him in the face. And to add to it, instead of being 1 1/2 hours long it was 2 1/2! I was sooo bored! We finally got out of the meeting and got our Olympic Park passes. We were ready for some fun! We picked up our tire and headed for the Park! It was full of fun things. An alpine slide, zip lines, adventure courses and a few other things. I was glad we had gone through the meeting to get free tickets, otherwise it would've been $59 a person!


 People were skiing down this and doing tricks into the pool. They were make a ton of bubbles in the pool right before the skier would hit the water so they would land softly. It was cool to watch.
 This was the smaller zipline we rode.

Dustin took a video of me coming down the slide

After riding 2 rides, we were in line for the extreme zipline and a storm came in! They had to shut down the park. We were so annoyed! We only got a portion of our tickets refunded and had to leave. We got back to the hotel and Dustin went to one of the managers of the Resort to see if we could get a discount to the spa for all the trouble we had had. He couldn't give us a discount but he gave us another 3 day 2 night stay at the resort for free! I was completely happy with that! 
We went and got some massages at a spa in town. Dustin's brother, Jared and his family went swimming at the resort because they were in town and then we all went out to dinner.
Sunday morning we had to check out, so after checking out we went mountain biking! I finally got to ride my new bike! It was fabulous! I'll admit I was scared out of my mind on a few parts of the trail we went on, but it was fun!
 And of course Dustin had to have a flat tire on his bike

 While biking up the mountain there was a small lake/pond we stopped at. Dustin found a treasure in it.



Dustin had sweet helmet hair after our ride! Sexy! 

I was sad to leave, we had such a great time but it's always nice to get home and sleep in your own bed...and we got a free vacation from it! So I'll be going back again :)

Monday was our actual anniversary, Dustin and I had to work so that night we had a yummy dinner and dessert!



I still can't believe how fast time has gone by. I sure do love being married to Dustin, I couldn't have found a better husband and I couldn't be happier!

Fun In The Sun

This past weekend was full of super fun adventures! Friday night we went crawdad fishing with some of our friends, Jake and Ashley. We made smores while the boys used their crawdad catching skills...and they didn't end up with a single crawdad. It was still fun even though we didn't catch anything.
Saturday we were out in the sun all day! It was such a nice day. We went boating with some of Dustin's family at American Falls Reservoir. It was a blast!

After we went boating we went mountain biking! I'm still getting use to it...I barely make it up the hill :) It sure makes my bum and every other part of my body sore, but it's lots of fun! And it was beautiful!

On Father's Day we went to visit both of our families. When we were at my parent's house we got to see my dog, Penny. She lives with my parents. Dustin isn't really a dog person. He doesn't mind them but he doesn't baby Penny like I do. I think Penny really has a crush on Dustin. She just stares at him all googly-eyed and is always trying to get his attention. She LOVES it when he just says her name and will pet her. But when he is willing to hold her...she just stares at him like shes in heaven. 


 Staring at Dustin, hoping he'll give her some attention

Lots to Talk About

My hip hop routine I choreographed (in my last post) took 2nd place at state! Wahoo! I was pretty excited! The Rigby High Dance Team did a great job!

I recently had a birthday on Thursday, the 22nd. I'm 22! Sheesh! I'm not too old yet. Dustin made it a fabulous day! The night before my birthday he gave me an early present. He kept saying, "Becca, are you sure you don't want to open a gift early?" And finally I gave in and opened it! It was the new Footloose movie, he just wanted me to open it so we could watch it that night. It's a cute movie.

 When I woke up for work Dustin had breakfast made for me! What a sweet guy! At work my co-workers all signed a birthday card and gave me cupcakes! That was very nice of them to do.



 I got home from work and found this on the bathroom mirror...

He came home for lunch and brought me some gifts and flowers! I like putting together puzzles so he got me a puzzle and then he got me a fishing game (an inside joke).


Later that night when he got off work we went out to dinner at Olive Garden and also got dessert. Delicious! And I got my last gift, a one hour massage at Massage Envy!


We wanted to go to the Hunger Games midnight showing that night for my birthday but tickets were all sold out, of course. So we went the next night instead!

The theater was crazy packed but we loved the movie! It was worth the line we waited in for over an hour.

This past weekend we decided to go on a hike for a little workout since the weather was so wonderful. We went by Kelly's Canyon to Cress Creek Trail..I think that is what it was called. It was a nice little hike except for all the bugs!




And next Thursday is Dustin's birthday! His is just one week after mine, he'll be turning 28! Old man! I've got to come up with some good ideas to top what he did for me. :)
