Jeremiah and I just hanging out in Boston Common, we had just finished eating Boston Cream Pie that we got from the place that invented it.
The Dentists, Dr. Larson and Dr. Visser-hot stuff!
"Team Chowda"- Jeremiah's goal for the trip was clam chowder for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Way to dream big Jeremiah!

Mike, Cyrus, Lindsay, myself and Dallas (visiting from Albany, NY). We took this picture before heading out. This was my first BYU football game, actually the first time I watched a whole game. We had fun, it was so hot and we nearly melted. There were so many BYU fans in the stands. It was great to be with my friends on location. It is a good feeling to know that we are still friends even if we live far away from each other.

I love Derek Swanson. He is daling! Derek was one the first guys I met when I moved out to Provo 5 years ago. When he started to be friends with our apartment we were so excited to know the cutest boy in the ward. We use to compare everything we loved to how much we loved Derek "yeah, but do you love chocolate ice cream more than Derek Swanson?" obvioulsy the answer was always no. I received the best hug of my life from Derek years ago and just an hour or so ago I received one of the best phone calls ever- from "D-rock!" You see, Derek was recently diagnosed with Cancer. Dang Cancer! I have been wanting to talk with my dear friend, but didn't really know what to say. I was so surprised when he called me this morning. He is doing quite well, very optimistic and energetic (I could hear him smiling on the other end of the phone). He is taking it one day at a time and trying not to worry, he is such a good kid. There really is no one quite like him, his laughter, blue eyes and that smile...what a stud! If you all wouldn't mind saying a prayer or two for him that would be lovely. I love you Derek, thanks for making my day when I should have been doing something for you.

Before I leave for Boston tomorrow I wanted to post the pictures I have taken the last few weeks. I am anticipating loads of fabulous vactation photos, but I want to get these on the blog. They are not quite in order, but you'll notice me and Jeremiah at Los Hermanos for Micah's 30th Bday Celebration (notice Micah in the next photo getting sung to); I made a delicious sweet and sour chicken recipe in the crock pot for "Wing Wednesday"; Olivia's baby Sydney and I then us with my former roommates and still friends at a baby shower for a girl from work (we all work at Apx); and finally me eating a smore at my ward campout a couple of weeks ago. Life as a grown-up is pretty much the same as when I was not a grown-up (when I was still in school), I am happy and healthy that is what is important.

Mark, Natalie and Leah Tacher were sealed in the Seattle Temple September 8, 2006. I was able to come home for the weekend. It was wonderful to be in the Temple with most of my family. Leah will be blessed on Sunday morning so I get to be here for that too. Other plans for the weekend: seeing the newest additions to "the party" Blake Wright and Easton Shaw, and helping my new roommate Lisa move into our new house. P.S. it is raining in Seattle today!

This is Eric Wing. He is fabulous! Eric is in my ward, he lives a couple buildings over. He is from Arkanas. He teaches Seminary and also co-teaches Institute with my roommate Kristy. He served his mission in Seattle. So, he is pretty much awesome. Thanks for checking out the blog E!
