Liar Liar...

Remember how in my last post I said I didn't feel like I needed a summer. Well I lied! I am soooo ready for summer break. :)

And we call ourselves grown-ups?

The grown-up part of our life is going well. Ben is hard at work studying and getting good grades. He has just one more week of school and then he can say he is a 2nd year med student! I have about a month left until I can say it is summer for me. This year it hasn't felt like I have as much work to do (no lesson plans and grading papers) so I am excited for summer but I don't feel like I NEED summer like I usually do. Haha...never thought I would say that!

Other than that we have been playing!!! Ben is still obsessed with frisbee golf...I think it is what makes him keep up on studying. It seems to be the way he rewards himself for studying when he should. I go with him sometimes and usually just watch. In the winter I NEVER wanted to go along but now that the weather is AWESOME and everything is green I am more willing :)

See the GREEN!

Last weekend our friend Lara threw a party. She is most definitely the BEST host and always shows us a way good time. We had an end of the year bash and played Bunko with the first year med students. It got crazy and LOUD.

The party didn't stop with Bunko...We stayed until after 1 AM! Our friend Dane said he had a game we could play. We trusted him and I don't think I have seen so many grown-ups literally on the floor laughing and not able to continue before. (The acronym ROFL suddenly made sense to me) He needed us to think of 5 farm animals. He wrote down 2 of each animal we named and put them in a bowl. We each picked an animal, got on our knees, and were in a circle. He told us to close our eyes and make the sound of the animal on the piece of paper. We had to listen and try to find the other person in the room making the same animal sound as us. Once we found them we had to stand up and whoever was first won. These pictures are a result of that game!

The beginning.

Ben holding another woman's arm!
Paige unable to stop laughing. I'm pretty sure my hair is covering my laugh.

What a fun night! Thanks Lara!!!

Here are some pictures from when we went to see Glenn Beck in April. (Thanks again Dane and Cassidy) We finally got our picture with him back and I stole some pictures from our friend Kayli's blog.

Color coordinated and everything!
My smile/glare looks a bit scary to me but Cassidy and Kayli look amazing as always!

Don't know what you got till it's gone

We had our anniversary! We can finally say we've been married for a year when people ask instead of saying, "Uhhhh, I think like...2 months, 3 months, 4 months," and so on. 1 solid year people!

We decided to head to DC to go to the temple. We thought that we started out our year together in the temple so it would be nice to start another year that way. It was a good day and we enjoyed spending time together.

After the temple we headed to Cafe Rio. I found out last week that there was a brand new Cafe Rio 10 miles from the temple. Ben and I were excited because we haven't had it since Utah. I knew I liked Cafe Rio but I didn't know how much I LOVED it until we moved to Virginia and no longer had it. When we got there it was Mormon central. It was funny to see that many people I could tell were Mormon in a place other than church. Ben even saw some people he knew from home.
