Sky Diving!!!

Ok, so last Saturday Kade and I went sky diving for the first time. It was the thrill of a lifetime and I can't wait to do it again. We went with Kade's dad and brother and it was incredible. Since it was our first time we had to go tandum(with a partner) but I was glad. I was pretty surprised with how NOT nervous I was. I have always wanted to do it but I thought that once it came down to it I would be way scared but I wasn't. You can see the teeny, tiny plane we had to go up in behind us and it took about half an hour to get to 10,000 feet, which is where you want to be to jump. We were free-falling for about 60 seconds (which is totally the funnest part) and then pulled the chute and rode in for about 4-5 minutes. I got a little queasy on the plane ride,cuz I have such a weak stomach but other than that it was awesome! Any of you out there that are thinking about doing it, DO IT! We had the time of our lives! We actually had a guy jump with us that filmed each one of us so I will see if I can get the video up here. It is pretty cool, and really funny!

Here is the new car. I do still miss Civi but having a new car definately takes away some of the sting. It is an 07 Camry and has tonz of features. I really, really love it and have had a good time driving around in a car 12 years newer than my last one. Kade actually got a new car too so I will have to post some pictures of his. It's funny cuz we both have been driving around in cars over 10 years old for the last few years and then all of a sudden we both get new ones. It's fun!

Farewell to Civi

So...Many of you who read this blog will recognize the car in these photographs. That's because many of you have riden in this beloved vehicle because Civi was my main form of transportation from the age of 15 to about 3 days ago when Civi and I had to go our separate ways. Civi and I had been through high school, college, and the first 3 years of marriage together so you can see why it was difficult to part. I actually didn't want to get a new car until we had kids but someone made us an offer on Civi we couldn't refuse so we had to say farewell. Now I am ridin' in a sweet new car (pictures to come) but Civi will always hold a place in my heart. So, now begins a new chapter of my life without Civi...
