1. A few weeks ago I took a little road trip over to see my sister. It was a pretty short visit, but just to spend a little time with that little niece of mine makes it always worth it. She grows more and more every time I see her. Oh and she's talking so much! Kristen and I hung out, doing what sisters do.
3. The beginning of my vacation started in Salt Lake City. I got a one-way ticket to see my friend, Kaleena from high school. She has an 8 month-old that is as sweet as can be. We tooled around and she showed me her life in Utah. We went to a tulip garden that was absolutely beautiful. It was nice to catch up with an old friend.
4. For my vacation I'd been planning a trip to Utah to go to Zion National Park with a few friends. We camped, for 4 nights, and then checked out Bryce Canyon on our way out. It was 5 days filled with hiking, eating, goofing off, and hiking some more. I was so sore when we got home. We drove the trusty "black bullet" and had safe travels. By the end of the trip, with no showers, we were all a smelly bunch. We stopped in Salt Lake City and showered, then drove through the night to get everyone back to work on time. Oh the things you do when you're young....
Here's a few pics:

(left)The top of Angels Landing: A very popular hike that has chains on the way up to keep you from falling off the side of a huge cliff. Yeah, that was not quite my idea of safety.

Quick stop at Bryce Canyon
5. All in all, I've been having a lot of fun lately. But for more news: I'm on the day shift now!!! I finally got switched to work a day-shift schedule. So far, it's been a real adjustment because days are very busy, and now I have a lot more things to keep track of. But it is totally worth the change!!
