Tennessee, the house, and clint

So things have sure picked up! We went to Tennessee last week. Tons of fun!! the first night we went about 30+ miles away for a firework show. Seems kind of far but it was the closest place celebrating on the actual 4th, silly southern baptist.

The next day we went to Memphis. We went to Graceland (Elvis's home) checked out Beale Street and ate at BB King's BBQ, which was really good BBQ, btw. We also went to the Gibson Museum. We didn't get to tour it because we didnt have enough time. We had a schedule to be at the Peabody Hotel for a duck show. haha! silly I know. But this really yuppy hotel has these ducks that ride the elevator down stairs from their suite on the top floor, walk a red carpet, and hang out in a fountain all day. We caught the end where they climb out, walk the red carpet and head up to their rooms. Silly silly stuff. Maybe one day I'll be a duck master.

The next day, my parents anniversary, we set up a 100+ ft slip and slide out front of my parents house. It was awesome! We soaped it up, had a sprinkler going and headed down on a raft. I busted it pretty good before we got the raft out. I ended up getting whiplash on my side. Yeah, I'm smooth.
Wednesday I went with my mom into Jackson and we went looking for beads. A couple weeks ago when all the family was there, they made watches. Out in Utah/ Idaho these big beaded chunky watches are super popular so we wanted to try it out. I picked my beads and quickly created mine. I'll have to take a picture to show you. I think it turned out well. and it was super easy to make!

thursday we left early for Nashville and did a little touring. The night before we watched Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The lightning Thief. In part of the movie they go see the Parthenon in Nashville, so we did too. It was pretty cool. Then we had a very very long day of flying. Nashville to Atlanta to Phoenix.While we were in Tennessee we learned how to make homemade bread and cinnamon rolls. And I'm not talkin about using a bread maker or bosch, we're talkin all by hand, homemade. It was great! Now I just need to practice to see if I can do it on my own.

Right when we got home, I started packin up for the new house. For those of you who don't know, we are only renting a house, didnt buy. Its just around the corner and up the street from our old Apartment. It's pretty sweet. 2 bedrooms 2 bath and a den (office/music room). It comes with a full sized washer and dryer too! We love it here! I'll have to take some pictures. But luckily were were about to get everything over and unpacked in 2 days. I work fast what can I say. Plus, I had a time frame. Clint, Drew's brother, was getting home from his mission moving in with us. I just wanted to have the house all situated for him.But speaking of clint, he got home the 15th from his mission. Its so crazy! It seems like he just left and at the same time feels like he never left. He's a super cool kid. We'll have tons of fun! I just hope Drew doesnt ignore me too much.
Um, that's pretty much everything right now. Oh, Drew treated himself to a phone upgrade for his amazing job he did on his DAT. He just got a Droid X from Verizon. That and clint will be the end of our marriage. haha not really, but I'm sure it will make me left out. And speaking of Dental School, things are still going well. Initail applications are done to 14 schools. We are just finishing up the secondarys and soon it'll be September and hopefully tons of interviews!!

Welp, this is a huge post! Just wanted to keep you up to date! Happy Hot summer!
