Okay so we thought that we would try to attempt our four wheeler ride AGAIN!:) Fortunately we had better luck this time! We went for a ride up to the tower on West Mountain, and yes I was brave enough to climb the tower! Okay not the entire way up but I was the only girl who even went up the latter! It was cool because we headed up right after dark and we got to watch 2 firework shows! Springville and Orem were having their celebrations so that was fun to watch from up there. Mel took my pic when I was up on the tower so when she sends it to me I will have to post it. I am glad that we had better luck, cause our ride was so much fun!

The girls from work and I had a exciting trip down to Moab. Every other year Utah has a Veterinary Conference in Moab. I attended for my first time 2 years ago and had a blast! This year it was a ton of fun because Ashley was able to go with us. We drove down early and went hiking in Arches National Park. I have been to Moab quiet a few times but I have never had the chance to go to any of the National Parks there. It was such a blast! We did several different hikes through the park but of course we hiked to Delicate Arch. It was amazing, even when hiking in 100 degree weather! After spending most of our day hiking we went back to our room got ready and headed out to dinner. It was nice to spend the weekend with the girls and get outdoors. However the next day we had to sit through lecture after lecture about anesthesia...... it really was not that bad, we learned a bunch of new stuff! Plus they hold our conference at the most beautiful place clear up the canyon. They have a huge screening room with a million different props and posters from all of the films they have filmed in Moab (lots of John Wayne movies and old westerns.......my favorite!). The weekend was definitely great, I look forward to the next one!

So this weekend we were going to go on a four wheeler ride but that didn't quiet happen. See wherever Jory and I go a curse of bad luck follows!!! It's the Blackett curse.......I got it from my parents!:) Anyways, we met up with some friends out at West Mountain on Sunday to go up to the tower for a short ride. Well Casey could not get one of his 2 4-wheelers to start!!! I couldn't believe it, dang the luck! It was funny because it is usually us who has the problem, but our bad luck must have worn off on Casey and Mel. We did eventually after about 3 hours get on on the wheelers to start, so we headed off to Lincoln Beach to meet Casey and Mel. We pulled our 4-wheeler on our trailer so we were just gonna meet Casey and Mel over there ( they took the dirt road on the wheeler from his house). Well we waited for about 30 min. and no Mel and Casey??? So we start heading back to his house thinking that the 4-wheeler must have died or something. I spotted out of the corner of my eye someone clear up the mountain waving us down. Yep...it was them, the wheeler died and they had been pushing for the last 20 min. It was pretty funny! We towed them down to the trailer and loaded em' up! Darn the luck! Although Casey has had a worse case of it then us lately, when they went on their guys weekend he broke his bike so he rented some guys bike and broke that too! He ended up having to buy the guys bike that he broke and take it home!! Poor Casey!

So while I was enjoying my family in Wyoming, Jory went with his buddies and went south to ride dirt bikes. He had a blast, he has not gone for a guys weekend in a long time. I talked to him every night and he had so many cool stories about what they had done that day. Jory, Casey, Luke, Weston and Luke's cousin went and stayed with a relative in Cainsville. They rode dirt bike all weekend long, and took some pretty cool pictures! I will post the rest of the pics on a slide show, they are really neat!
