This last weekend we took a trip with Stewart's family to Yellowstone. We had a great time and got to see lots of neat things. The first picture is of me n Stew at Mesa falls. This was a really neat place. Walking down to the falls the river looks like it just disappears, but as you get closer there are these beautiful falls. It was a nice place to stop and walk around.

This is a picture of one of the Elk we saw. This was right on the side of the road! It was really neat to see it up close like that! Stewart took about nine billion pictures (he was practicing for his debut as a professional photographer :) This is a really cool picture though... Good job honey.

Here we are in Yellowstone park at the Yellowstone Grand Canyon. It was really pretty to see the water and the yellowed rock from the sulfur.

Here is Loni and I pulling one of our silly faces. We got to ride in the Yukon together a bunch and had tons of fun looking for animals, learning about Yellowstone, and taking silly pictures. It was good to have the time to really get to know Loni, Debbie and Ada better!

Here we are at Old Faithful!! This was the day that it seemed to be raining all day long, and also seemed to be the day we wanted to get out and look at all the neat things. It was kinda hard to see the faithful geyser against a gray sky, but it was neat. We have Ada in this picture.... this will be what it's like in about a year for us.... we'll have our own cute little baby to pack around :)

I love this picture!! We went to the gift Shop at old faithful and they had a lot of neat things. We bought some mugs and had a hard time picking which ones we wanted. We thought we were going to get these ones, but it was clear that if we got these mugs we would have to get these motorcycle caps :) what a cute husband I have!

Here is Ada wearing Loni's coon skin cap... she was such a cutie the whole trip!

Here's one of the bears we saw. It was right across this river!! It was neat it romped around a bit and overturned a stump to get the bugs from the bottom! Way cool.

Here we are in Jackson Hole at the famous antler arch. We managed to get our own picture that turned out really good! This was one of the coolest things in Jackson Hole!

So I was pretty sick most of the trip. It was probably a combination of a wacky eating schedule, lots of time in a car, and being pregnant :) This is how me and Loni made the most of it on the way home.

We had a really fun time, but like all vacations, it's good to be home and sleep in our own bed... (our own king-size bed at that :)

Sooo.... here's the news you've all been waiting for!! Yes indeed the Binghams are expecting!! I am almost six weeks along now and doing great! Me and Stewart are SOO excited!! I hope it's a boy first, and Stew hopes it will be twin black boys (sorry honey... not gonna happen :) As far as my "morning" sickness... it comes at night (when it does). Most nights I feel ok, but if I eat some certain things (like chocolate or pickles for example) it sets it off and I'm done for. But it's all worth it! We are so excited to be parents!

Our first night Apart

So this weekend was the first time me n Stew spent a night away from each other. It's kinda sad, but we are together SO much of the time it was hard to be apart. My parents went to Salt Lake for a cousin's wedding and invited me to go. Stewart was subbing in for his dad and Dietrich's JV basketball team and wouldn't be home till late and would be leaving early the next morning... so I decided to go on the overnighter with my parents. It was a good trip and lots of fun to hang out with my parents, but I missed Stew like crazy. Everyone kept telling me that "distance makes the heart grow fonder"... it just made me miss him even more. Ultimately I'm glad to be home and glad to be back with my honey!

Bingham update

So this last weekend was mine and stew's "summer vacation". Since I am taking full time summer school and Stewart is working ALL the time we figured we had better get away before real life wore us completely out. So we (I) decided to go to Lagoon. We went with Hank and Mekala and had such a good time! I was pretty bad about taking pictures (i didn't) so there's none to show you really... We went to the waterpark as soon as we got there. That was probably the hotest part of the day so that was good too. After that we made our way around the roller coasters. We went on the cliff hanger that completely soaks you, but that was ok because the intense heat dried us out pretty quickly. So then later we decided to go on the log ride. You know... that tame log ride that only goes around a bend then over the hill... no big. Well we waited in life FOREVER and only a few people on the ride seemed to come out wet. Yeah right. We weren't that lucky. We were completely SOAKED!! It was fun... and still ok cause it was still pretty warm. Our next decision was to ride rattlesnake rapids... bad idea. yes we were wet, but my shoes and hair was still dry (the two things that I really enjoy having dry). Well thanks to those rattle snake rapids we came out even wetter than before! (at least I was). I was the one that when the water splashed into the raft it went right down my back. I was also the one who went under the most water on the water fall part (yes... making my hair AND SHOES soaking wet... not damp... WET. By now it has become overcast, and yes... cold. It was all downhill from there. I don't know about you, but when I have wet tennis shoes, I start getting cranky. Not to mention that the wind picked up (like tornado speed). so we decided to ride two more rides then head home. It was a fantastic trip though! I had tons of fun and I think that everyone else did too. AND it was a perfect way to rejuvinate for our busy summer.

School (btw) is going great. I have a spinning class mwf at six (yes in the morning :) It's a good thing it's early because it helps me to get more done during the day. then I have Sociology from 8-9:20 and Math from 11-12:50 on M-T-W-Thurs. I also have an online business class I'm taking... so far so good (except for the $177 book I had to buy). The best thing about summer at CSI is that it's only 2 months long :) perfect for me.
