So today a bunch of our “YPers” went river rafting! It was SO much fun! (And honestly, quite blog worthy) First off, you might notice in this pic, a drink in my hands- its a Rock Star (sugar free to be exact.)

Probably not the best thing to drink before you’re about to do an activity that requires intense focus…

Let’s just say I was a bit ADD the entire time πŸ™‚ and was not the best of help, even during the “BIG” rapids… hehe, sorry guys!

(as seen here)

But one thing I did do on this rafting adventure was save one of my fellow rafter’s lives! (well, sort of….)

Jenni, who was sitting across from me, appeared out of the corner of my eye that she was falling out of the boat as we were going through our first BIG rapid. My motherly instincts kicked in! (no, I’m not yet a mother, but I still have em’) Immediately I let go of my oar (not good) and yelled out, as I reached over to grab her and pull her up, “I’VE GOT YOU JENNI!!!” I then quickly reached for my oar, as it was about to get sucked under the current, which in turn whacked me in the head….

Well, it turns out Jenni was never even falling out of the boat, just leaning in and rowing hard through the rapid, just like we were all supposed to be doing.

Oops….. πŸ™‚

So I have this silly habit of saying, oh how should I say this, really dumb things….Some of my close friends know this all too well. Well I decided to embrace this unique “gift” of mine, and to start sharing some of the things I say with all of you, out there in the ‘blogisphere.’ Here is an example of a conversation I had recently. I will post more in the days to come… πŸ™‚

Me: “Oh what’s that you’re from Denmark. That’s awesome, Colorado is beautiful!”

Other person: “It is, but why are you talking about Colorado??”

“Aren’t you from Denmark, Colorado?”

“No, that would be Denver, Colorado…”

Whale watching…

Tomorrow Krist and I are going whale watching! You hop in a boat with 50+ other people for 4 hours and look for whales… I know I’m a weirdy, I can’t wait! πŸ™‚ Pray for good weather (forecast is saying 60% chance rain, I say sun in Jesus’ name!); And pray we get some pics just like this one! Oh Jesus, please!!!!!

Today on vaca Krist, Mark and I decided to go kayaking. We arrived at the dock to find out that we had only a half hour to kayak before they shut down shop. Kind of a bummer, but we figured ‘what the heck’ and decided to give it a go! Little did we know a half hour would be PLENTY of time. πŸ™‚ I absolutely love water and was so excited to get out in the vast ocean. What would we see? dolphins? seals? A great Orca perhaps?! We hopped in the kayak and were on our way! We didn’t get too far before it occurred to me…. “babe, could there be sharks out here?” Let me just say now, I’m not afraid of a lot of things, but the thing that I am probably most terrified of is sharks; ever since I was a young girl when I saw the movie Jaws. I don’t know why but it had not occurred to me until that moment that sharks could be out in the ocean where we would be kayaking… duh?… and in that moment I began to panic… The boys did not help either with their teasing comments or thumping the boat with an oar as if a big fish had hit it. πŸ™‚ oh boys… Needless to say, as much as I love the water, I was pretty thankful we only had a half hour- I was already ready to head back! We had no dolphin sightings, no whale sightings… but fortunately NO shark sightings either! Thank you Jesus! But all in all, I did have a good time. I did, really!!

The Eagle City Council approved a high-end shopping plaza that will cover 200,000 square feet.

It will be a lifestyle center. It will be called The Shops at Lakemoore – but it will have more than just shops.

Developers describe the concept as a place where people can go to hang out and be outdoors, and eat, ride their bikes and walk around.

Dennis Baker owns the land and it will house shops, a restaurant, a 4-diamond hotel, homes, offices – even a bike path.
