Breaking the record for the World's Largest Water Balloon Fight

Tell me this doesn't look fun. It was SO COOL!

Yesterday we went to BYU to be a part of the thousands of people breaking the World Record for the largest water fight with 120,000 water balloons. I was so excited! Chris and I got there when the waivers were all gone so we waited around for a little while then got onto the field.
All the tv cameras preped, Cosmo was there in his finest, everyone had either yellow, orange, pink, blue, or green on to determine teams. They ran out of shirts but Chris got me a yellow one, we ran to a huge tent and grabbed a grocery sack each which was filled with about 20-30 water balloons and then we waited for the countdown.

Here we are nice and dry before the event. We are so glad to wear tennis shoes to protect our feet and run really good.

Wow, all wet from the fight. They counted down and all 4,000 of us threw them. It looked crazy we were getting wet from every direction, actually I'm mostly wet from Chris hahah, but it was so fun.
Apparently on tv it said it took three days to fill up all of the water balloons and 6 minutes to go through all of them. Since Chris and I were on the side it was great because we were by the tent to grab more of them.

After the fight was over we waited in line where they had huge sandwiches, water, and BYU ice cream. Was this a good decision to go to today? Heck yes. We beat the crowd leaving and drove to the duck pond where we ate our food.

Babies!!! Look at them aren't they cute?! I got so close because the mother duckie was behind the tree and didn't see me approach. Wow what a fun day

Saint George with the Pearsons

Last week was so much fun getting back to Utah then heading down to Saint George with Chris' family. After his work, we drove down with his dad and by the time we got there around 10pm... it was just under 100 degrees. It was SO hot the whole time but we got some good color and relaxed around the condo and pool.

I loved the palm trees all around and at the pool it was so hot going from the pool to the pool chairs with our towels that you had to run.

On our way down we had stopped and saw this huge rocking chair that was really tall

We went exploring one day and Chris took me to a cave thing his family calls the Narrows. We didn't go through it but I loved seeing the red rock and trying to carve our initials into the rock

We also went to the temple one day to do work for some of my ancestors. It was an amazing opportunity and I loved being there with Chris and feeling so close to him and the spirit.

A breathtaking sunset we saw on our way home. It was so beautiful. I can't wait to go back there soon

My wedding ring

Coming back from Michigan, Chris picked me up from the airport. I was so excited to see him and we hugged and kissed as he helped me get everything into the car. When I was waiting by the curb, he ran over something plastic so when I was loaded into the car and he said "wow look what that thing did to my tire"... I got out and he was on a knee once again with the real ring that came in!!
A man stopped and was so amazed and asked to take our picture for us and said he was starting to get emotional haha.

Here are some pictures of the ring!!! It's so beautiful and has ovals!
