the end of summer and fall

Well to say it's been a long time since our last post would be a huge understatement. I guess when life got very busy we just gave up trying to post about it. Well here is the recap of the summer.

First, Cassie and I got married on the beach in Oregon on August 6th. It was a fantastic ceremony and very chill. The weekend following the wedding we had a reception with friends and family invited for a bbq. The food and drinks were superb and everyone had a great time. There are a thousand more things I could say about how much fun we had, but honestly I just don't think I have the energy to describe it all in detail.

After that we headed up in the van to Squamish for a few days of granite climbing. Unfortunately it rained a good bit while we were there so we only got in two days of climbing. We did have a great time though and are planning on heading back at some point.

August was a very hectic month and after getting back in Utah we were soon heading to Monroe Canyon for a climbing trip, and then in September we headed to Ohio for a reception that my Mom and Bruce threw for us. It was another great party. (again completely leaving out many details, please ask if you want to hear them)

After that reception we went to Red River Gorge in Kentucky to go climbing. It was beautiful sandstone and we really enjoyed it even though it rained every single day and was extremely hot and humid. Bruce was extremely kind and let us use his classic VW camper for the trip.

September was over after this trip and October was into full swing when we did a slot canyon trip with the Utah Climbing Club. We did two slot canyons in a single day and had a blast. Cassie's parent's swung through on a Southwest roadtrip and visited with us for a weekend.

Now it's November which means its been almost four months since our last post. We'll try to be be better about keeping up with it. Enjoy all the pics, even though we weren't posting we were still having fun in lots of cool places. If you haven't heard from us in a while there is a good chance we've posted pictures of our adventures to flickr.
