Flight ot the Conchords

Tonight at work while I was checking peoples bags, then a guy came up to me who looked exactly like one of the guys from Flight of the Conchords (if you don't know what that is...then it is these 2 comedians from New Zealand who have a TV show). Anyways...after he gave me a New Zealand passport and I realized that the item he was checking was a guitar I thought there was a chance he might actually be the same guy. After confirming the name with wikipedia I found out that it actually was Jemaine Clement from Flight of the Conchords...I thought it was pretty exciting..

July 4th

For the fourth of July a few of my friends and I decided to go to Celebration park to watch the fireworks. This is a tradition that I have done for several years with my family..but this year it seems that there wasn't much family around on the fourth of was weird not having the typical spot on the grass with tons of cousins, aunts, and uncles around..but it was still tons of fun. Before the fireworks started then Keith, Nikki, and I tried to take a picture fitting all three of us..much easier said then the time the fireworks started then we had taken probably 20 pictures....but this is just a snip of some of the pictures and what it took to take holding the camera upside down.

Happy Birthday Ian!

Everyone only turns 19 once. Ian decided to celebrate his big day last weekend, and what better way to celebrate then with a super hero themed party. With the invites , Ian mentioned that if we weren't dressed up he wouldn't let us through the front door. Nikki and I took this threat to heart and decided to dress up like teenage mutant ninja turtles. The party was a ton of fun. Everyone from Superman, to Darth Vader, to Logan Davidson came....I 'm questioning the validity of some of these super heros...but it was all good.

What party would be complete without "pin the tail on the donkey"...
...I mean..."stick the batman logo on the batman"

The cake even had a picture of Ian as young Superman...
...Keith enjoyed staring lovingly at young Ian's face

Rattle Snakes Ledge!

The weekend before last I had the opportunity to go on a hike to Rattle Snakes Ledge. It was a singles branch activity and since usually those activities are a lot of fun I decided I didn't want to miss it. It was a beautiful hike not far off from North Bend. The only problem was that it happened to be 95 degrees that day and we started the hike at about 11am....It was very hot!!! Although the hike is only 2 miles up I thought I was going to die after not too long. Finally I made it to the top and it was totally worth the beautiful view. We spent about 40 minutes up there eating lunch and enjoying the view. The pictures don't do it justice, but here they are anyways. I would definitely suggest this hike!
