So, I've become a pro at making ham and cheese braids!! Its amazing how easy it can be. Me and Meg have been experimenting new dishes to serve at our waffle nights which are tuesday nights. (we kinda got sick of eating waffles everytime so we are now mixing it up a bit.) Last tuesday we made two ham and cheese braids and two dessert braids, and boy were those really good!!

Just when I think I'm starting to be a good baker...This happens: My bread dough was way way way to sticky to do anything thing with it. So this is attempt #1. Then I threw it away...Now with a new start me and meg got it somewhat right. But this time it was alittle on the dry side. But it still tasted good. Meg made the cinnamon rolls and I did the cream cheese braid. I think we had more fun laughing making the sticky dough than actually making our bread! Final attempt #2

About a couple weeks ago me and my dad went for a motorcycle ride up to fort bridger which is in Wyoming! What a ride! Amazing. As we were coming into Evanston there were hundreds of windmills everywhere. It was awesome. I've never seen that many windmills. Everywhere you looked you could see windmills! We got to for bridger and walked around. Did you know that the Mormons burned down Fort Bridger and so Mr. Bridger went and got the "police" that drove them out of that area? I did not know that until now. Pretty interesting stuff that happened there. We then ate at alittle diner..I mean little. I ate my first bite of buffalo meat. It didn't taste like chicken..it actually tasted like hamburger.

Yesterday I thought of the idea to bake a cake for my mom for her birthday. I texted her and asked what her favorite candy bar was. She had no clue what I was doing. She thought I was buying her twix or something. So, I went to the store and bought all the stuff I thought I would need to make this awesome cake. After one attempt at getting the cake out of the pan I was unsuccessful. But, cake #2 came out fine! Thank goodness! Cuz, I was starting to get sick of a making just cake. Even though I only had made one unsuccessful one. I finally got it right and started decorating. It's really hard to get gold icing let me tell you all the trial and errors. but, me and meg finally got what we thought was close enough to gold. Here is the Final product!!

It's been forever since I last updated you all!! Sorry. Well I have had a great summer. A couple of weeks ago I got to go on a motorcycle ride with my dad. And Bronco Mendenhall (BYU Football coach) Was the lead motorcyclist!! There were over 150 bikes in this ride. It was so amazing. This bike ride was a fundraiser so, we entered a drawing to win a motorcycle..of course with my luck or my dads luck I should say.haha we didn't win. But, oh well, on day I will own a pink motorcycle! We got breakfast and lunch given to us, which was way nice. Very yummy! :D

So, I know its been like forever!! I'm really bad at blogging. Anyway I got to go snowmobiling in Yellowstone over Presidents day weekend. Can I say it was amazing! The day was perfect. Blue sky, 37 degrees. haha We did get lost but that was the best part. We were about 20 miles off course out in the middle of no where. The tricky part was trying to find the right trails to get back. When we got back we went to an old abandoned airport and snowmoblied up and down the runways. It was fantastic!! The day we left was so cold. It was only 4 degrees! But, good thing the weather was good.
The lakes and rivers were so beautiful. Since the water is warm all of them are unfrozen which makes the picture taking incredible!!
A couple of weeks ago I also got the opportunity to go to the Draper Temple open house! Can I say it is the most beautiful place I have seen. Walking from each room and looking at all the architecture and pictures were amazing. I can't see why anyone would want something else than a temple marriage. Walking into the celestial room was aw strucking! It was gorgeous! Words can't describe the beauty. I can't wait to do my work in there.
James got to come with me. He just got home from his mission!! And my other friend Zac gets home in 8 days!!! So exciting to have my friends coming home.
