2010 in a Nutshell

So I've decided I'm not very good at blogging. Since it's been a while since our last post, I'll just do a quick recap of what we've been up to recently.

We had a very busy summer and did a lot of traveling. Our biggest adventure of the year was traveling down to Havasupai in the Grand Canyon. The weather was HOT but the scenery was incredible.
The top picture is of Havasu Falls. It looks small but it was actually pretty big.

This next picture is Moony falls. I guess a few years ago it used to be split up at the top and created two waterfalls that came down this cliff, but in 2007 there was flash flood that nearly cleaned out the canyon and made this waterfall just one massive stream. You can't tell from the picture, but the fall itself is at least 100 feet tall.

The next picture is Beaver falls. It's not very tall, but very beautiful and fun to play in! The water was so warm! I'd say between 85-90 degrees, which felt really good after hiking in the 110+ degree sun.

There was one more waterfall we played in called Navajo falls. It's about 35- 40 feet high and had a really cool cave underneath it that we could jump off of, through the waterfall, and into the pool below. Scott was even brave enough to jump off the top of the waterfall. I'll post a video once I figure out how :)

Penny also had a good year. We bought her a pass to the Course -a-Lure obstacle course and it was fun to watch her time improve after every run throughout the summer! She loved it and we are definitely doing it again this year.

Although she has gotten bigger and is learning some new tricks, old habits still die hard. She's had her share of getting into trouble, but it's hard to look into those big brown eyes and stay mad for too long!

We spent our 3 year anniversary in San Francisco and had a lot of fun visiting Alcatraz Island, eating seafood, and even catching a round of golf with Grandma and Grandpa!
We had a very peaceful and relaxing Christmas. I worked a lot during the month of December while finishing up with my last semester at the U. I am now officially graduated!! With ski season and Sundance in full swing, Scott has been putting extra hours in at his job. But he still finds time to make it up to the slopes about once week.
2010 was a great year for us, but we have a lot in store for this year as well. We are looking forward to a great 2011, and hopefully I'll be better at posting as well!
