Semi-painful growths.

You know how you can feel a nice, big, undergrounder pimple beginning to sprout? Well, 

I am growing a boil right now. It's more painful and weirder than a pimple, but also pretty awesome.

If a new boil pops up over night then I'll have a carbuncle of boils! That makes it worth it.

I don't know why this has happened. . . Even more, I don't know why this happened to my face.

Luckily my hair can cover it.

And luckily it doesn't just look like a big fat whitehead. That would be awesome, but nasty.

In a week it should get full of fluidy stuff. . . right now it's just working on getting large.

When I saw the Doc about my boil, he told me to not pop it. . . and if it starts draining he wants me to call him. I think he thinks my boil is cool so I like him.

The moral of this story: Boils hurt more than underground pimples.

stupid foamy soap

I hate foamed soap. . . you know: the kind in the public restroom that comes out pre-foamed. It makes me feel dirty because I can't get a lather.

It's also in every public restroom that I use.

I get frustrated every time I use that foamy-ness.

The end.

Grand Falls

The Kruses invited us to go off roading to Grand Falls near Leupp (loop) which is northeast of Flagstaff. It finally rained, so the thought we had was that water would be gushing down the falls. . . but in reality it has been so dry that there was just sand! Because it was so dry, we were able to hike right down to the bottom of the falls and we climbed and explored. . . it was just fantastic! We'd never even heard of the place, but now it's definitely a favorite!

We ate Taco Bell before the adventure, and being in a jeep that is rumbling and grumbling doesn't help bellies trying to digest. On the way there J and Kayla had un-fantastic feelings, but once we got there they were both great.

We also got lost! Kallam got out of the car on the Navajo Reservation to walk to a house and ask for directions, and some seriously stupid dog was so afraid of him, but once he turned around to walk back to the car and he had his back to the dog, the dog started coming at him! Luckily Kayla had pepper spray, and luckily he didn't need to use it!

Leupp, Arizona

Arizona has the best scenery!

We love them!

J is so excited!

Ow ow!

We take awkward pictures, but at least we're okay with that! 

This lighting happened on its own!

Road where the water flows.

We are friendssss.


Team Work!

Independence Day

Our traditional Independence Day with the Clarks was fantastic! They were able to come up to Flagstaff and spend the night and day with us. We watched a hot dog eating contest, and I decided there is nothing nastier than that, but we are SO doing one next year! We knew that fireworks in the White Mountains would have a chance of not happening since the weather has been so dry, so when Kayla and Kallam extended an invite to witness "fireworks way better than Show-Low" in Winslow,  we absolutely took them up on the offer! Oh. my. goodness. I thought Show-Low was great, but now Show-Low is nothing! Winslow's show was so long that they had an intermission. We almost died of joy. I think we lost our hearing for the night, and the next day I had firework dust-junk in my eye that had me writhing all day, but it was so worth it! Oh my gosh. I just can't even explain them! We love Winslow. Next year we've decided to barbecue there, bring a truck with a  in it to swim, and an air mattress to watch with. The Kruses have forever changed our firework-ing lives!

We love the fourth of July so much!

Hot dog eating contest of awkwardness.
The abnormally large crowd watching the contest.

Happppppy men.

We were so impressed with the sparklers! Michelle and Kayla are babes.
 Oh my gosh. I forgot a story. Michelle, Zack, Jake and I went to the downtown stores to window shop and grab lunch. At one of my favorite stores, there was a KILLER necklace, and I only admired it for a few minutes because we were only window shopping. So we window shop for a few more stores after the one with the necklace, grab lunch and go to a sweet shop for some caramel apples. When I looked into my bag to grab my wallet, the necklace was in my purse. . . staring at me. No bag, no receipt. I had just stolen a necklace and I didn't have any clue how it happened. I was having a nervous breakdown to myself when I looked across a fudge bar and J was LAUGHING HIS FACE OFF! He had purchased it when I was smelling soaps, handed it off to Michelle, who then distracted my by asking how heavy my bag was. . . oh my word. It was the most frightening moment I've experienced in a chocolate shop! Nevetheless, the necklace is flipping awesome. I love its gaudiness and the story makes me love it forever more!

Dingy lighting, FANTASTIC piece
