Weekend Wonderland

I love weekends!! So far this weekend has been So much fun. Last night after eating a delicious dinner at Olive Garden (first real restaurant we have been to for quite sometime) we headed over to Fairmont park to feed the duckies. We had done this another night but we had a bunch of old bread we didn't want to just throw away, so we decided to feed the ducks.

Here are the ducks quacking after our bread. They weren't as fun as the first time we did it. The whole pond would follow us around wanting bread. These ducks weren't very aggresive, but it was still lots of fun!
This is us after feeding them. Notice how they realized the bread was gone and they are no longer surrounding us? Off to find other people to get fed from.

These are just us having fun. I think Sam was going for a nice picture in this last one!! Feeding the ducks was a blast. After, we just rented Marley and Me which made me want a lab really bad.

Today we spent some time at the Farmers Market at Pioneer Park. We got some nummy tomatoes and peaches. There was a cool guy there that did cool tricks. We paid him a dollar, even though he asked for ten. Here are some of the cool things he did.
This is him Juggling, but he is on a unicycle. Not a normal one, he three wheeled one. It is a bad picture but you get the point right?This picture he is balancing on all that stuff. He used the pole to help him up. It was so rad!! He was hilarious too!!

I just love weekends!

First Blog Ever

So I did it. I caved. I got a blog, and I'm not so sure how good I'll do on it, but I figured since I was married, it was about time to start one.

Sam and I have been Married for 4 wonderful months now. Marriage is the best thing ever! Sam and I had such a long courtship, and it seemed like marriage would never come, but come it did!!

Back in Jr. High, during a seminary end of year party, I wanted to take a picture of one of my friends I thought was super cute. This friend pulled Sam into my picture. I didn't think anything of it until i got the film developed and saw Sam in the picture. I thought he was way "hot" and I would joke that he would be my husband. The next year, I went to Kearns High, and Sam went to Taylorsville High. Our schools were playing each other for the Kearn homecoming football game. There was a tailgate party before at the Seminary and Sam was there. I wanted to meet him so my friend Jake Calderwood introduced us. We immediatly hit it off calling each other "best friends." About a week later while I was home sick, I got a phone call. I answered and I hear a voice say "is Caitlin there" I said it was me and he asked if I knew who it was. I told him I didn't and he said "it's your best friend!" I was so excited. We started dating on and off after that. We dated almost all our sophomore year, and then again half our Jr year. As seinors we didn't date, but we were still friends. After high school, I was dating another guy, but Sam wouldn't have it. He would just keep coming around and being there for me and soon I realized that I loved him and we became boyfriend and girlfriend again!

Sam served his mission in Nashville TN, Spanish Speaking and I waited for him. He came home September 10, 2008 and we picked up where we left off. After much impatience on my part, he proposed to me on December 23, 2008 on Temple square. I was living in Cedar and he was in Taylorsville so it was a hard engagement but we made it!! We were married May 16, 2009 in the Salt Lake Temple and life is great!!
