So this Saturday was pretty much a party...it was the day before my friend Kate's birthday, so we decided to all party it up by going to the ice caves and then having a bonfire at the sand dunes. It was my first time going to the ice caves...and there was lots of ice...way more than expected.. there are about a million pictures so..yeah...
once we got there we needed to drive out a couple miles to get to the caves...you NEEDED a four wheel drive, therefore we stuck 10 people into Stephanie's little Ford SUV
After hiking down into the depths of the earth we got to the front of the cave and were pretty dang excited
yes...you did have to crawl on your stomach..on the ice...to get through parts of the caves
p.s. it was pitch black
This is the part where you had to hold onto a rope...while leaning on a giant underground iceberg..and pushing off rocks on the other side...to avoid falling into a giant cave
almost there!!! and that huge hill on the right is all ice...sorry...still amazed at how much ice there was..haha...I'm a nerd
Kate trying to get to the sparkle cave (basically all the walls are super sparkly when you
put light on them..it's awesome) and me trying not to die in the pitch black
This was a really long hallway of ice..stephanie and I were trying to be ice skaters.
probably my favorite..trying to launch Tory across the ice..it didn't work as well as planned.
We finally made it to the end!!! the whole group!
and the rear view...things got a little wet.
Once we were completely frozen we decided to go the sand dunes and have a bonfire
Stephanie and I tried sliding down the dunes on an inflatable mattress...it worked out way better in our heads. Stephanie ended up somersaulting all the way down the hill.

On my first day of classes all my interior design teachers informed us that we would not be sleeping this semester...at all...so I decided to take advantage of my minimal homework this weekend and party like mad!
It all started with a trip to Idaho Falls with my friend stephanie. We pretty much just went shopping to find some yoga pants for my jazz dance class, but I came back with WAY more. They had a sale at old navy for 47 cent shorts...you just can't say no to such a deal. After Idaho Falls we wanted to do something amazing..so what better thing to do in the little bit of summer we have left than go swimming! Well...we got a big group of about 8 people, put an address in the GPS, and headed out to "St. Anthony". Stephanie's car was the party car and it was a ton of fun...but after probably about 15 miles on a gravel rode we wondered where the heck we were going. The party car was still a ton of fun...but the other car...well..not quite so much. Apparently the driver was a little frustrated after driving that far in his shiny little car. You see..Stephanie has a nice big four wheel drive..so the rocks were nothing to us..we even went off rode a bit over some sweet hills. Eventually we found a nice couple towing a tractor and asked them where the heck we were. The guy said that the lake was "over by dem sand hulls"...well...just imagine farmer talk. So we turned around and eventually find Egin lake..it probably didn't get deeper than 2 feet throughout the whole lake..but it reminded me of dash point in a strange way so all was well. There was no fires allowed so we decided to start off on our next adventure... a fire at the guys apartment...but it turned out all the wood was wet...so...the next stop was applebees! that turned out pretty well. Then it was off to Kate's apartment for a movie and a sweet game of phase 10...I still need to dish out some payback for certain people using the skip card on me!
So...basically it doesn't sound like it was too exciting...but it was SOOO much fun...I never really leave my apartment..I think I need to get out more. haha.
The Party Car!
We were afraid that Andrew would get mad at us once we stopped...he did
But it was a party anyways!!!
