Funny story about this baptism.  On Thursday night, I was taking a shower and being in missionary mode when it came to baptisms, I started to worry because we had no songs, we had no speakers, we had no prayers, we had NOTHING planned for this baptism.  Then mom was so kind to remind me that we live in Utah, and they plan all that, and all we have to do is attend.  :)

Jen and the kids got into town today.  G decided to try and wear D's helmet, and tried to get me to wear it too.

Jen called last night saying that she might show up in the middle of the night with the kids.  We decided to build a crib as a precaution

no picture day - again

So... I know for a fact that I never took a picture today.  I got busy with telling people bye, and realized when I got home I had no picture for the day... I'll try not to let it happen again.

Lilly Pad

I went to the gardens today to do some studying, but it didn't happen.  I wandered around taking pictures of plants, and took a nap instead.. all right before a final i was supposed to be studying for.  Ah well.  At least the final consisted of 4 questions and playing a game.

Potatoes outside the boys dorms?

I was wondering to a friend's house tonight, and passed these by.  They look like potato plants, but... outside the boy's dorms?

no picture day

Apparently I never took a picture today.  I don't even remember what I did, so I can't even go back and take one.

I just want to say i am rather proud of this shot. It was taken not really looking at what i was taking pictures of, while driving the car. my camera was taken away shortly thereafter by one or two of the passengers. I guess they didn't feel safe with me taking pictures while driving (though i swear i was looking at the road the whole time)

Lisa came into town for the weekend. I haven't really seen her for three years, so it was good to see her again. :)

Primary Sunday

Today at stadium singing we sang primary songs. It was a lot of fun. My roommate, since she is a recent convert, didn't know many of them, so it was fun to teach them to her, and see her looks of us all being crazy while we were singing some of them :).

more construction

Because I was asked about it, this is the new auditorium they have on campus (I've heard it referred to by a bunch of different names. the most common one seems to be the conference center, since it looks almost identical to the conference center in Salt Lake, only smaller)
I can't wait for construction to be over, so that then campus will be back to normal, and you can cut across campus, and take half the distance between to buildings off :)

I was walking back from the Ropes Course, and saw this. I thought it looked pretty cool. For anyone familiar with the BYU-Idaho campus, this is comming off the MC. This is part of the bridge they are working on building between the MC and the Library

Firt Aid Kit

I felt like quite the Rec. geek when I pulled this out of my backpack yesterday. A first-aid kit inside a Nalgene, complete with headlamp and candle. Man, I love my major :).
Also, I've recently discovered this song. I quite enjoyed it.

Apparantly the Geology department has an aquarium in their rock museum. This coral, though it doesn't show it well, looks glow in the dark. It was cool to see.
