Harses, harses, harses

So, I never wrote about a few Tuesdays ago when I went horseback riding with my cousins. I took the day off of work and homework, and drove out to Spring City (near Manti) for a very relaxing and very fun day.



We ended up combing the horses a lot,

galloping a bit, going up a mountainish place and chasing a small herd of deer. Jacob's horse seemed to have asthma... he was wheezing the whole time. But Jacob was breathing okay.

After riding we played a few games then went for a "hike" in one of the local canyons. We only went a little ways up and played a lot in the snow. Here's one of our guides juggling:


Everyone after all the snowball fights:



As I was driving home that evening, I just kept smiling -- it was so fun. I love my cousins (and my aunts and uncles).


In other news, I graduated from BYU last week:

Love the bow-tie. Love it.

I am also a fan of the bow tie---but not as much as I am of the bandana around your neck for the "harses." (Sleepless in Seattle?)

Congrats on graduating!

Oh, right... I forgot to explain the bandanas. My aunt brought bandanas for everyone so that we could be authentic :)

I know everyone has said this already, but I just wanted you to know how much I love you for wearing a bowtie to graduation. You are such an engineer. Congrats!

If I had never seen the picture, and you had asked me to close my eyes and imagine what you'd look like on your graduation day, I'm 99% sure that I would've been right on the money.

It just fits.

Congrats!
