I started this blog in early January of this year. I lost interest, so I only got half-way through the first post. I decided recently to keep it going - I dunno, might be fun?
First Blog: How we spent 2007
* January: Troy and I went to Maui, Hawaii for a week with Troy's mom and boyfriend. We stayed in a condo that we got through a travel club that we belong to. It was beautiful! We rented a convertible Mustang, went to a few beaches, took a snorkeling tour to the volcanic island of Molokini and ate the best fish and chips you've ever tasted.
We even had a chance to fly to the island of Oahu for one day and visit with Troy's grandfather that he had only met once when he was just a child. On Oahu, we visited the Dole Pineapple Plantation (mmm....) and Pearl Harbor. We also saw several whales and their babies frolicking in the ocean :)

We also had a new addition to the family on January 2nd. My brother, Nate's daughter - London Ann!
*February: Troy turned 27 on February 12th.
*April: It was the 1 year anniversary since my father passed away on April 26th - what a milestone. The Bringhurst family decided to start a tradition to go to dinner together this day each year.
*August: We went on a camping trip to Bear Lake for the night with Nate and Nicole. The weather was beautiful and the water was so blue. We even rented a waverunner and a paddle boat. Nate and I were in the paddleboat when all of a sudden it started sinking from all the water being splashed into the boat from all of the jet skis. We had to get help, a guy on a jet ski came and dragged the paddleboat behind him.
* October: We celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary by going to Logan for the night. I went to Utah State for a year and a half right out of high school and Troy lived up ther for a few months and worked at the bowling alley. We drove around and showed each other where we used to live and hang out.
* December: Troy had wrist surgery right before Christmas. This would be his 3rd surgery removing the same cyst! He was not feeling well and I got sick right during Christmas, too. Not very fun! But we still managed to have a good time. We went to my mom's house to open gifts with my family Christmas Eve. Troy and I then went home and opened gifts to each other the same night - a tradition we started when we first got married.
