Pre-pare yourself for oodles of photos...

Laser Tag.
My parents also played- including my mom! The Clegg kids couldn't come even though it was Jaxson who had the idea to play laser tag again for my birthday.

Day Trip to Vernal

The Petroglyphs at McConkie Ranch in Dry Fork Canyon
It was pretty cool. I wouldn't mind going back again.



Fantasy Canyon
I think we only saw 1/4 of the area, we were running out of daylight so we definitely have to go back again!

Time lapse Derek filmed, although it didn't capture the amazing oranges!

Birthday Service Project:
Volunteered at the AFSP Campus Walk at Utah State.
A former student of mine took his life 2 weeks ago and my friend lost her son almost 2 years ago.
Honor Bead Colors:
Teal: A friend or Family member of someone who lost/or struggles
Purple: Loss of a relative or friend (they ran out of purple so I gave mine to someone who needed it more than me).

 Many touching stories and amazing tribute songs.
 This is a sculpture on Utah State campus, I thought that it was fitting for what the cause was for.
 View from campus atop Old Main.
 I made these stairs up to Old Main apart of my walk, it seemed more fitting to represent the struggle of those who are left behind.
