There's a first time for everything

Sometimes life throws you an unexpected curve ball. Sometimes all you can hit are the curve balls. Sometimes someone will say something to you so unexpected it makes your eyes pop and your jaw drop so fast your gum falls out of your mouth.

A couple of weeks ago Scott and I were taking a casual drive to some destination I don't remember when he turned to me and said, out of the blue, " Ya know, I think we should start a blog." That's when my eyes popped, my jaw dropped, and the ball hit the sweet spot on the bat.

Home run.

I guess I've been wanting to start a blog since we got married, but never had the time and never really thought I had the encouragment from my other half. I'm not sure what caused him to make such a definite desicion on such short notice, but I couldn't disagree!

So here we are. Our first blog!

As many of you know, about a week ago we moved down here to Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort in Mt. Carmel, Utah! It's been a busy week of unpacking, working, hiking, swimming, 4-wheeling, and rosting mallows. But I guess that's what you get when you are living in a resort with one of natures most incredible playgrounds as your backyard.

I am currently working in both housekeeping and the front desk. I switch every other week and actually really enjoy it! Just when I get sick of putting on a happy face all day, I move to housekeeping. And I'm sure once I start thinking I can't possible make one more bed or scrub another toilet- time to put on a happy face!

Scott is kinda doing the all-around busy work- getting his hands dirty in every possible area of the resort. Today he made 8 pizzas while helping the kitchen get ready for lunch. Last week he did a lot of housekeeping and a little bit of recreation. He comes home so tired some times because he had spent the whole day on ATV tours or running through the paintball course or at the pool on guard duty. Tough life! But he and the other intern are really having fun together. The manager even has them working on some projects to help improve the resort in certain areas.

Besides all that we love it down here and hope you all get a chance to come visit us! Our "home" isn't quite big enough to sleep everyone, but you're welcome to bring sleeping bags! We are living in a trailor that is probably bigger than our first apartment. It's.......cozy!

I think that's a pretty good first blog!

Pictures will come when we figure that stuff out.
