Time to do homework!
SOO excited for tomorrow night...Afton Huntley is taking pictures of Mark and me!! We're ready for a family photo :)
Here are some pictures from the Summer!
Eating dinner at The Roof in Salt Lake City...great food, great date, and great view! Mark totally surprised me!

Thanks to Brent for taking the picture (Mark's step-dad!). We had a wonderful time running the Utah Valley Half Marathon (June 17). Catherine and Erik also ran it, but weren't able to go to breakfast with us afterwards! Everyone did so well. I love my in-laws! 

The famous one-pound burger at Big Judd's in Ashton, Idaho! It's on Man vs. Food, and since Mark is OBSESSED with that show, we just had to try it on our way to Island Park for family vacation over the 24th of July weekend. 

This is Ryan, Mark's brother (he's single, ladies!!!). That's right, he ate the WHOLE THING! These Freemans never cease to amaze me. He's a big boy! Oh and if you're interested, let me know ;) Mark and I shared one--I could only eat 1/4 of it!

I look really weird in this, but I have to show off the tart that I made with my sis-in-law Catherine! She is an incredible cook and was so sweet to teach me how to make this perfect-for-summer dessert. I had just gotten off the lake (in Island Park, ID) when we started to make's not belly sweat, in case you're wondering :) 

The newest addition to the Freeman family!!!! Violet Jan I love you. She is the most chill and happy baby around. She looks like her mama Sarah (married to Josh, Mark's oldest brother). She was born in January. Seeing her every other week makes me more and more baby hungry! I love her precious cheeks!

Mark is the favorite uncle. This is at Yellowstone National Park near Island Park at the hot pots. Our neice Bella is on his shoulders. She is Violet's responsible big sister! We love her dearly and are always shocked at how grown-up she is and smart!!! 

That's my man. He's smokin'. haha!

The angle is weird in this! it is supposed to show how large all of my brothers-in-law are, but instead it makes me look their size or bigger. Anyway, they're big, and I'm small compared to them. Trust me. (Pictured left to right: Mark, Erik, Ryan)

Meeting up with girl friends from Spain Study Abroad 2008! Rachel Loven-Hite and Rachel McDonald are both dear girl friends of mine--It was great catching up with them at Brick Oven in Provo! 

The usual lunch group...LOVE THESE TWO WOMEN! Charlotte had just announced that she was getting engaged soon, and Julianne's life is always exciting with mission and boyfriend talk. We're all in different stages in life but I am just so blessed to have such amazing friends.

These next pictures are from Mark's surprise getaway to the Zermatt Resort in Midway, UT. He picked me up from school and we headed up...he had packed my bags and everything! He ended up getting a suite because of this feature....

SPOILED?! yes. I am. We LOVE this tub! When we someday have money, we will have to get a big jacuzzi tub :) 

The room was amazing! It was huge! I couldn't even sleep that night, I was so giddy. Plus, there was a rockin' thunder storm that was quite the show all night and morning long.

The food wasn't that great, but we certainly had a great time and it is part of our many fun memories together!
