G-O BYU Cougars!

Tanner got us tickets to my first BYU game on Saturday!
(Looks like the game must have been really intense for the elderly man behind us ;) )

We got all dressed up in our BYU gear to root on our team!

It was such a great game. They played the Colorado Rams and squashed them 42 to 35. We had a great time since Tanner's sister Laura and her new husband Matthew were sitting right next to us, cheering our brains out! :)

George Erickson Family Reunion

On Labor Day weekend, Tanner & I drove up to Oakley Idaho to my Great-Grandfather's cabin for the George Erickson Family Reunion. We arrived there Sunday afternoon so we could be there for the day activties on Monday. Sunday evening most of my second cousins were there so we all had a BBQ dinner and roasted mallows for smores in the fire pit. Although Tanner was trying to get over a nasty flu/sinus infection, he was a trooper the whole time.
It was so fun to see Travis & Naomi! They always make me laugh!

Whitney had been in Utah a few days before we left to Idaho so she drove up with us. It was great seeing and catching up with her before she left for BYU-Idaho.

Us girls had a great time together, but Courtney was really missed.
It was so great for me to see my cousins I grew up with. Kassi (far left) just went in the MTC about a week ago. She was called to serve a mission in New Jersey, spanish speaking. Mikaela (middle) & I are only 12 days apart and all three of us have always been close growing up.
Monday was the day dedicated to learning of our family history. My grandpa, his kids, and my grandpa's brother, Don, and his kids were there. I learned a lot about my great-grandparents and the history of the Erickson side (my mother's side). It meant a lot to me to have my companion next to me, learning about my family's history and meeting all my cousins and second cousins. Although I know it was probably not the first place Tanner would have liked to have spent his holiday, he was such a good sport in trying to learn everyone's name and be involved in all the was going on.

We Love Lagoon!!!

On Aug. 11 was my company's annual company party. They decided to have everyone and their families meet at Lagoon for a discounted price. Tanner got work off and we arrived in Farmington before the park opened and spent the day at Lagoon!!

We spent most of the day with my friend and co-worker Whitney, who brought her boyfriend's little sister MaryGrace for her first visit to Lagoon. We all went on the Colossus ride together and Tanner and MaryGrace loved it so much they wanted to go again. Whitney & I were way too tired, and being bums, so sat that one out. Tanner has such a fun personality, the child in him began to come out as the ride ended.

Tanner & I had so much fun together that day. We both love rollercoasters and theme parks so we went on every ride we could. The last time we were at Lagoon together was while we were dating; July 2007 to be exact. It is such a fun perk living in Utah to have a theme park close by. :)
