Friday night we went camping for James' brother Eric's birthday. Eric, Crystal, James and I went to Diamond Fork Campground which is up Spanish Fork Canyon. Grandma and Grandpa Meyer watched Ryan for the night and had so much fun with him. We ate yummy hot dogs, steak bites, s'mores, and hot chocolate for dinner and had eggs, bacon, grilled cheese, steak, muffins, and hot chocolate for breakfast. We played games and chatted around the campfire all night and it was lots of fun. We love hanging out with Eric and Crystal because they are so much fun!
Our campsite. Eric and Crystal's tent is huge it definitely could sleep 8 people. James and I need to get a bigger tent before we go camping with Ryan.
I have a weird face in this picture, but it lets you see my new haircut and colors. It's dark brown underneath and then has big chunky highlights of bright blonde and red on top. It's way cute! My good friend Talara does my hair and does a really awesome job! This pic was taken right before we left Eric and Crystal's house to go camping.

We went to Sonic one night this week and Ryan was so excited about our Tater-tots. He loved touching them and picking them up and looking at them. I don't know if it was the texture or the grease that he liked about them. He even tried to feed them to himself and to take bites of them. He didn't know how to swallow them though, so they ended up back out of his mouth. I thought this picture was really cute though.

So as many of you have noticed I'm not good at blogging, but I'm going to keep trying to keep my goal for the last 4 weeks.
I never blogged about our anniversary trip. For our 6th year anniversary my mom was in town so she watched Ryan for two nights while James and I went to St. George. We had a hotel voucher we got from buying our couches at RC Willey last year so our hotel was free and we ate at some awesome restaurants. James got an awesome Cannon Rebel for his anniversary present. I'll just post some pics to show you the trip.
We stopped at a Ghost Town (Silver Reef) on the way to St. George, in Leeds.
We searched on the internet for restraunts before going and this one looked really good. It was amazing!
I loved the interior design and they had huge pieces of artwork on the walls. This picture is blurry, but it's the only one our waiter took.
James had an amazing meatloaf that was infused with Tabasco and other yummy spices.
I was still full from our lunch at Jack n' the Box so I had a really good salad that had lots of fruit, nuts, and a yummy vinaigrette dressing. I love restaurants that present their food and make it look so pretty.
We had my favorite for dessert, deep fried Oreos with a milkshake for dipping. It was divine!
On Friday, James and I hiked around Zion National Park. You can read more about the hikes on my hubby's hiking blog. We did the River Trail, Upper Emerald Pools from the Kayenta Trail, Middle Emerald Pools, and Weeping Rock.
After a long day of hiking we ate dinner at the Anazasi Steak House. We started off with Cheese Fondue and then had two amazing steaks that came out rare on a volcanic stone that kept cooking your meat while on your plate, that way you could have your meat exactly how you liked it. I had filet mignon and James had a bison steak. They were amazing. To top it all off we had dessert fondue at the end. We found out that you got free movie tickets when you got dinner with an appetizer and dessert there so we went to see Scott Pilgram v.s the World. It was amazing! One of our favorite movies now.
On our way home on Saturday we stopped at Kolob Canyon and did a little hike called Timber Creek Overlook.
We also made a stop to Cedar Breaks National Monument to see the sites, which included a field full of sheep that were also all over the road and many majestic overlooks.
We had lots of fun on our trip and were really grateful to my mom for watching Ryan for the weekend.

A few weeks ago Adobe had a night at the Salt Lake City Bees game. They fed everyone and then we all had sweet seats to watch the game. The game started at 7:05 and Ryan's bedtime is usually 6:30. Ryan was great durring dinner and even before the game started. A few minutes after the game started he even fell asleep. At the end of the first half of the first inning though the announcer came on and scared him to death. He awoke with a blood curdling scream like someone had hurt him. We exited the stadium quickly and went home. Good thing the game was free and we got to eat the free food before he had a meltdown. Poor little boy fell right asleep in the car and went right to bed when we got home.

Ryan loves bath-time, especially now because he gets to be in the big tub. He finally has enough hair for us to play with in the tub and he loves splashing in the water. Here are a few pics from tonight's bath. He scratched his eye on Friday so it's still a little red from that.

James and I decided to go camping and hiking before the season was over. A few weekends ago James' mom watched Ryan overnight and we went camping at Payson Lakes campground. It was beautiful! The next morning we attempted to hike Dry Mountain Peak. This mountain was only 2 miles round trip, but so incredibly steep. James made it to the top, but I didn't. We still had lots of fun and it was a nice break from being parents for the night.

I have been challenged to write in my "journal" 5 times a week. I'm going to do this through my blog since it is my "journal". I'm determined to meet this challenge so you should see more postings for the next 6 weeks. Some things to look forward to are pictures of the cute baby and some pics of my new hair. It's nothing like I've ever done to my hair so stay tuned for updates!

We have been up to lots in the Meyer household. James' Aunt Kathleen, Grandma Meyer, and Cousin Nephi came to visit so Grandma Meyer could meet her Great-Grandson. We went on a hike to Donut Falls in Big Cottonwood Canyon. I'll include some pictures at the end, but to read more about it go to James' hiking website here. Also if you would like to "like" Utah Hiking Info on Facebook you can get notified whenever new hikes are posted. They post two hikes a week in Utah and they post hikes that range from family and kid friendly to hikes for experienced hikers and backpackers. You can also follow utahhiking on twitter to get notified as well. I'll also throw in some cute pictures of Ryan at the end because you know that's why you are really here.

We took Ryan to Spanish Fork's Fiesta Days today. It's probably about a 1/5 of the size of the Provo Freedom Festival but it was fun to get out in the Sun and walk around. It's only a 15 minute walk from our house to where the festival was and parking was a beast so we packed up Ryan in the stroller and walked over to the festival. We ate yummy food and then on our walk back home got some shaved ice snow-cones. We let Ryan have a few bites and his reaction was quite funny. Even though he hated the cold he kept wanting more and more.
You'll have to click on the picture to really see how funny it was.

Many of you know that James and I used to be in a band with some of our good friends Mark and Shiloh. James and Mark played guitar, Shiloh played drums and I sang. For awhile we had a drummer named Jon and another guitarist named Greg. Everyone has since moved from Utah and moved on with life, but many of you have asked to hear our songs so I thought I would finally post them on here. The first one is Everlasting Maze that James and I wrote and the second is Lame that Mark wrote. I also included some pictures at the end. We performed at Hollywood Juice Cafe, Froyo twice, Fresh Cup Coffee House twice, BBQs, and BYU's Battle of the Bands. It was a lot of fun while it lasted, but life came and split us apart as we all had kids and moved away.
