Kim and I have started biking every day, every other day, every three days, or every week or so....We actually try and do some kind of exercise everyday, and are actually pretty good at it. I sold my body (donating plasma, I know what you're thinking) to buy us bikes last year and we are finally getting good enough to conquer some rough terrain. Cache Valley has a ton of great trails and we are learning which ones we like best. Our latest endeavor took us up Green Canyon, which by the way, was really green. The trail wasn't too difficult, but it was a gradual ascent of about 2,000 feet, 6 miles long one way and a bit rocky.
We were both surprised we made it all the way up...

The last time my family took a 'Family Picture' was right after I got home from my mission, circa 1903 (2003 actually). Needless to say, it had been a long time since we had all been together, cleaned up in a respectable manner, and found someone that could stand us all together to snap a few pics on a decent camera. We also had all grown significantly since the last time, mostly horizontally, although I did increase the length of my curly locks at the request of my wife. Since my youngest brother Nate just got his mission call to California and is leaving in September, that Kim and I will be moving to Phoenix in August, Emily finally had a boy (after 3 girls), Seth was married long enough that we think it will last, and my dad's realization that he's not as immortal as he thought...well, we figured those were enough reasons to make it work.
We went with the classic 'white with jeans' look, and posed overlooking the mighty Bear River in east Tremonton. This picture is just of me and Kim, and then just my siblings (front row - Emily 27, Ashley 14ish?, Sara 16 and back row - Me 25, Nate 18, Seth almost 23). Maybe I'll get a whole family one up soon.

(This is from our summer trip to Phoenix - Scottsdale Stadium, A's vs Giants)
Well, it seems like I haven't been too diligent with the blog lately, but I resolve to try and do a better job. Life is moving on for me and Kim, she is taking two summer classes, starting June 11th (her birthday), Genetics and Human Anatomy. Hopefully she maintains her sanity, and I think she will. She got a jumpstart on the classes and has been listening to past lectures and taking notes. She'll just have one more class, which she's taking at ASU-West and she will graduate!
Work is good for me, I'll be putting in my 30 day notice soon, and hopefully will be done around the middle of July. I start school at Thunderbird in August, and we will be moving to Glendale around the end of July/first week of August. We are looking forward to the heat and baseball.
Not a whole lot else is new. Hope I didn't miss anything. Keep in touch.
