So, what the crap have we been up to while we've neglected our blog since the SYTYCD show, that Sar and I still find ourselves talking about, not to mention my sick playlist of all the dance songs from the show that I put together for one wicked enjoyment every day to and from work!!!!?...................

Well, we've been up to a whole lot of nothin. Acutally, you know us we can't sit still, so not really. Sar spent a week up at her sisters house in Vancouver, Washington. I've put in some descent hunting hours, with buddies and what not. Rabbit, Deer, Duck and Pheasant. It's been fun to get outdoors a bunch this fall. I've enjoyed taking photos of good old mother nature as well. I stuck a few of my fav shots below. Sar has been consumed by her cheerleaders again. It's that time of year that she choreographs their routine for nationals. There first comp is in December. Nationals will be in March again, and I can't tell you how excited I am to go for the sixth time in a row. ;!> I love Disney land!!!!

Now, what else......ooooh how could I even begin to neglect our little monkey that seems to be incubating ever so well in Sar's tummy. I felt her give a swift kick the other night. She's gonna have a wicked shot. I bet she'll play forward and score goals like crazy!! Sar doesn't think so though she thinks she'll be doing some sort of wicked scorpion, or a laid out double full of the beam.........

Speaking about the little tyke, Sar is feeling a ton better. For those that don't know she was throwing up every day like five times a day and mostly in the evening up until a few weeks ago. Thank goodness that's over. She's been in school up at the U as well this past fall, and I can't imagine being sick and going to school. She's got less than a year to finish up her degree in Sociology. What is she going to do with a degree in Sociology? Probably the same thing every stay at home Mommy does with there degree. Nothing! However she'll probably still be doing her massage, since she loves that too! But she wanted to get it done and we both feel that getting a degree is a must, and def will be for our kids. Anyway, Sar is now about six and half months prego. Can't wait to be a daddy! She's due the end of January!!! I need to get home and take a pic of her freakin cute belly and stick it on here for you all to enjoy.


Have a super duper halloween!!! I think Sar is going to be Juno and I'm gonna be Bleeker! Sar's idea, since it's a prego costume for her, although I think she got the idea from one of her friends!

---So You Think You Can Dance---

For Colbs B-day we went to see so you think you can dance at the E-center. It was truly some of the best entertainment we've seen in our lives.....!! Soooo fun! These were some of our favorite dances of the evening and season! One exception would be the bed dance, pictured here last. Neither Colb nor I loved this one but who could resist a shot of Twitch like that, Right!!!! It looks just like Colb with his shirt off, except not black!!!! Ha Ha!!!!

----------------CABIN / LOTOJA-----------------

Colby's fam has a cabin up in Afton, Wyoming that for about four years now we have been heading up to for the 206 mile Logan to Jackson bike race (Lotoja). The cabin is ideal for this particular trip as the race route runs right along the road into Afton, where the cabin is! Why this trip every year you ask, because my awesome and crazy brother in law, Stephen usually does this insane race! However this year my awesome and crazy sister, Erica who usually carts around her two cute kids while supporting her hubby in this insanely long race, decided to do the race as well. Unfortunately Stephen broke his rib prior to the race while getting involved in some crazy shinanagins in Lake Powell. So he became support crew for his darling wife! Erica did amazing and was incredibly strong through out the race and still had quite the sense of humor at each feed station! It was fun to watch and as always ended with the tradition of eating at the Mangy Mouse in Jackson Hole! Then back to the cabin, about an hour away, for a little R&R! Too much fun! Thanks van Dijks, for giving us a reason to head up there every year! Here are some of the pics from the race and at the Cabin!

The Ick's & Blah's

Whoa!!, I think I am going to live! After two months of feeling like I was going to die I am hoping the worst is over! Although I still feel sick at night, I'll take that any day over all day sickness! I use to think I was pretty tough, however I haven't even been able to make it over to the computer and sit up right long enough to update our blog, so I guess.... not so tough after all! But I'm still very happy to have a lil' baby growin' inside me!

Here is where I've been the past two months!

And sometimes here!

This has been my view! (And constant companion!)

This is what has been keeping me going!

"The Nurse!" and "The Cheerleader!"

Cute Hubby! (pictured here with nurse!)
(These two also happen to be the head of the
Sympathy committee!......Very good at their jobs!)

Family and Friends who take Colby out and occupy his
"A-D-D-ness," while I can't! (And it seems once again Mikee,
Colb's bro has misplaced his shirt!......there in the first pic!)

"So You Think You Can Dance!"
Go Joshua! Your amazing and totally
deserve it!

And as of lately........

The 2008 Beijing Olympics! Yeah, we love the Olympics!
Especially the Gymnastics, Diving, and Swimming!
Good Job Ladies! You put up a great fight!

Well we are almost to the "fun" part of being prego, so I've been told! Which is finding out if it's a boy or girl and also feeling it move! We have about another month, so I let you know when we know!

Well not much more than heart beat and apparently not a very clear one, because I guess I didn't drink enough water, but enough to know that there is a little eggo in our prego! This was taken at 6 1/2 weeks, when we first found out, and I am now a little over 8 weeks! We are super excited and have had a really hard time keeping it a secret, well mostly Colb! Our due date as of right now is February 10th, so maybe a Valentines Baby!
The funny thing is we honestly had no idea! I was switching insurances so we could go see another doctor who might be able to help us. The other insurance asked me to take a pregnancy test and have my doctor fax in the results. I didn't think to much of it and went into my doctors office took the test and the nurse came in and was like..."Well it looks as though we have a positive!".... I was completely shocked! Colb wasn't with me nor did he even know what I was doing that day! So when I drove up to Park City to see him that day and bring him an early Father's Day present he wasn't the slightest bit tipped off! I got him this little statue thing with a mom, dad and new baby, from Desert Book, (sooo cheesey)! Even after unwrapping it, he just looked at it and was like... "Oh, thanks, hun!" and then he was like, "I guess you really want a baby!" And for those of you who know Colby, that was just classic! After doing a little explaining so he could understand that WE WERE GOING TO HAVE A BABY, then the celebration began!!!! We are soooo happy and just wanted to share the news with everyone!

Colbs Photography

For the last two weeks Sar has been at Girls camp and Cheer camp. So, I've obviously been board and decided to do this post............
So, a little hobby/passion of mine is taking photos. I love it!!! I love it soo much that while Sar and I are driving around I'm always commenting on what I think would make a cool photo or what not. I'd hate to be married to a person like me. I'm always wanting to turn around and go back or stop on the side of a road.... When Sar and I were dating I always had a camera with me, not just one but two. That was in the day of 35mm camera's, so I'd always have a camera with black and white film and the other with regular color film. Needless to say we had a good number of photos for our wedding day. Sar sure is a great sport, for putting up with me.
I started to really enjoy photography when I was "a little shit" in my father's terms. I was around ten years old and was given my very own camera. I took photos of everything, until one day I dropped it in the pool and my Mom said she wasn't going to replace it, so tuff luck. Maybe she was happy cause she was done with developing photos with nobody in them and of stupid random things.
later on I really got into photography when high school came around. I shot my very first wedding when I was a senior. I also began shooting photos of some of the girls in high school. Their moms would catch wind of it and have me photograph there girls, usually we'd go out to the garden park ward. (classic photographers heaven). It was fun.
After High School I started college, and ran into a photographer name Scott Green. He had his own photography business and mainly shot models and did weddings etc. I worked with him as an "aprentice" for almost a year. and learned a lot about the body and how to position it in certain ways etc.... I will say I didn't make jack but it sure was fun, . That's what I think photography is all about, the "fun". So, just to share some of that fun-ness I've created a blog and stuck just a bunch of stuff on it. I think next month I'll stick a bunch of my photoshop stuff on it too. so here it is, enjoy. There is a ton, and not all will fit on one page so you need to click on the titles on the right to open more. (fyi)

So, Sar is the one that does all the posts on the blog. However I'm going to attempt putting together my first "blog". And it goes like this.............

Here we are, happy little couple.

Colb (me) goin big! Go big or Go home, Right?!
This is most of the crew, and there's the house boat in the background. Pres Bush helped us buy into this year so thanks 'B".
Wakeboarding is one of our favorite things of all time!

Sar is so freakin sexy when she wakeboards!


Sar and I wake skating. We actually kissed while out there. I wanted to add that photo but I thought I'd keep this pg.

The water was super nice!

The distance between the two splashes is the distance of the jump!
It almost tipped back on us nuckleheads a couple of times. Great entertainment! Chillin..................... Anthony, his girl Daniel, and us, took the kayaks out for a good three hour adventure. We cruised around forever and found some really neet slot canyons to venture up.
This place was soooo beautiful!!

by the time we got here we had the whole left right paddle thing down so we didn't run into the wall too much. A typical comment while rowing was Sar saying "hun, I swear if you do that one more time!.............!

We found a cliff to jump off!

The water weinie!............... It was a stupid idea to even blow it up. You always hear those stories of hitting heads etc. Well you guessed it me and Anthony smacked heads pretty hard. It still hurts four days later.

Bill and Trish, Sar and I just love them. Bill is a great guy with a super dry personality. Trish is like a mother to us and is just so real.

Greg, Tris, Stacie, and Kirby.

We think they're a fun couple. I think they should get married too. I think Dani wanted to kill me after the trip for making so many marriage jokes, but it was fun.

K. So the water balloon laucher is always a highlight of the Lake Powell trip. This year to make it even more interesting we brought down a dozen tennis balls!! in the pic below is Anthony lauching, kirby holding on the right and Greg on the left. That's me way out there on the Sea doo dodging.

This is Sarah being hot.

She's really good at it!

Crazy crater! down inside it dropped down about 200 ft..............but not really, it was only like five, but it still was cool.


This here might have been one of the most gorgeous places we've been to EVER!!! It's the narrows at Antelope point. The little indians charge ya a butt load to go down it ,but it's worth it.

The hike through prob lasted a good 300 yards.

We feel like we're still on our honey moon, cause of all the pics we take.

This was a fun attempt at the camera timer!

A true photographers heaven!

Is this not the sweetest place EVER!!

The trip ended at The Point Restaurant at the Marina.

We had such a great trip. Prob one of the funnest Lake Powell trips of all time.
