Post-Honeymoon Travels :) (June 5th - June 19th)

After our honeymoon (which will be blogged soon) we had a great two weeks of fun, family, friends, weddings and hot sun!

On Saturday the 6th of June we woke up and left our honeymoon cabin and started the drive from Northern Georgia to the beautiful table rock lodge in South Carolina. One of Emily's best friends from childhood - 'til now was getting married, Emily Baggett, to a great guy, Cameron O'Sullivan. We had been anxiously anticipating their wedding and it was beautiful. The ceremony was held in a beautiful chapel overlooking the mountains of South Carolina and the reception was at a wonderful lodge nestled in the mountains. They are a beautiful couple and we look forward to many wonderful and sunny trips to the beach with Em and Cam O'Sullivan :).
Isn't she beautiful?

Camping, Logan, Stitches and more! (July 2 - July 5)

We apologize for the ginormous blog update.

Alright, Em and I are loving this whole blog thing. I expect the more we write and update the more of a "voice" we'll develop, here goes.

So we are a little bit behind in documenting our adventures since we got married so we are going to start with the most recent and work our way backwards until we get to the wedding and honeymoon. By the time we catch up we think we'll have the picture loading thing all sorted out.

We started the long weekend of July 4th by testing out our new camping gear that my siblings got us for the wedding! Thanks guys! Here's the tent that fits two queen sized air mattresses...

We went to Hope campground up close to squaw peak - right after paying for the camping spot the guy that lives upstairs told me that there's a free spot just right past Hope campground that has a great view - Hope does NOT have a great view, oh well, we learn by experience right? We went with our good friends Devin and Robli Bell who got married the Friday after us who were also trying out their new camping gear - good thing too because we forgot our lantern and matches and they didn't :).

We had tin foil dinners and they were amazing! Way to go Em.

Devin loves big fires, can you tell?

He also loves to serenade his wife away with the best of Jack Johnson.

Upon returning home from the campout Saturday morning my brother Matt arrived in Utah with his wife Corinda and their two kids Aliya and new baby Joseph. Naturally, Emily and I had to go see them - so we did (with a little help in the gas money department ;) ).

We ended up crashing a family reunion and sleeping on a blowup bed in their living room thanks to the hospitality of Corinda's mom. They were so great to us and the grandparents treated us just like family. It was so good to see the MCKrebs family :).

On the way home we stopped by to see the Logan temple which is where Matt and Corinda were married and which Em had never seen. We also got to say hi to my cousin Andy Adams who just recently got engaged - sorry, we forgot to get a picture of them. I'll try to track one down.

But, the fun was just beginning. After listening to the "Twelfth Night" by Shakespeare on the way home we awoke late monday morning (there was no school) to sirens going crazy for the stinkin' Provo parade that takes place half a block east of our apartment! Little did we know we'd need sirens of our own when not 5 minutes into the morning, while my wife was cutting tomatoes for our day trip to the Payson lakes, she sliced open her finger with our brand new and very sharp knife set! So we ran up to the BYU Urgent Care Center (we had just gotten medical insurance through BYU the week before - thank goodness!) and it was closed. So, we made our way to another urgent care center that accepted our insurance - and they didn't open until 10 AM (it was about 9:45), some urgent care center that was. Finally we got in. This is Em getting ready to be sewn up.

They ended up putting 6 stitches in - she'll get them out tomorrow.

And just to prove how tough she was we still went out to the lake with our pseudo family, the Morin's,  to canoe and kayak.

These are our bestest friends the Nicole and David Ellis (Nicole's family, the Morin's, were the proud sponsors of our trip to the lake). The Krebs' and the Ellis' hang out QUITE a bit :). 

Em was under strict instructions to not get her hand wet for 24 hours, so she put a plastic bag on it with some tape and went canoeing (sp?) anyway... that's my girl!
