Summer so far!

 We have been staying busy while we are in AZ for the summer. Here is a little glimpse of what we have been up to!

A few weekends ago we took a little trip to my Grandparents cabin in Flagstaff. While we were there we made sure to hit up Bearizona, and it didn't disappoint!

It is basically an awesome drive-thru zoo. We got to see wolves, bison, sheep, and then finally the bears! The bears were just waking up from a nap when we arrived, so we got to see them eat a little snack and then wander around. It was super cool to be just a few feet away from real bears!

After the drive-thru part we got to get out of the car and go see little baby bears. They were adorable.

While in Flagstaff we also went golfing, drove the atv around, and took the rowboat out on the lake.

Always love cabin trips!

 Mandy is getting married next week so it been fun to be here for all of the festivities. Here is a cute sisters pic at her shower.

We also had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. We took another trip to the cabin then came home on Monday and made a yummy flag cake, and set off some fireworks in the backyard!

 Life is good!

Bring on Spring...

Its been a crazy couple of weeks for the Assante's! First, I graduated from BYU and could not be more excited about it!

Then, we moved to Arizona for the summer! Thomas got an internship with Oakland Construction. He is the superintendent of a Target remodel in Tempe. He is really busy and sure is sacrificing a lot of sleep, but he is really liking it! Here he is in his cute work get up!

I am busy teaching swim lesson and life is still good! We miss all of our friends in Provo but are loving being in AZ with our families.

The latest....

Thomas has been working hard on a BYU construction management competition team. They went to Reno for the competition a couple of weeks ago and took first place! I am so proud of him and all of his hard work.

I ran a half marathon in Moab, UT, on Saturday. The course was beautiful and among all my pain and suffering I really tried to enjoy it!

It definitely wasn't the easiest thing, but I am glad I did it. Sure was a good excuse for a fun little weekend get away to Moab. 

My parents came into town a few weeks ago. Naturally, we had to get a little skiing/snowboarding in. Always love having them visit!

Mandy and Robby got engaged and we could not be happier for them! They will  be getting married July 16th, exactly a year from when we got married. So excited!

 Cute Thomas at our Valentines Day dinner!
Life is good for the Assante's!

22nd Birthday!

A few weeks ago I turned 22! Thanks to my wonderful husband and great family and friends it was a fabulous day. Thomas made me breakfast and gave me some presents in the morning, which I loved.

Then I went out to lunch with some friends then out to dinner with Thomas. After dinner we met up with some friends and family at The Chocolate, a cute new dessert cafe in Orem. It was so delicious. I highly recommend the pazzokie.

 I am excited to see what this next year brings my way! Thanks to everyone for making it a great day!

Brian Head

For MLK weekend we went up to Brian Head to ski and snowboard with my family. It was a blast as always and it is a family trip that is one of my favorites.

 We had a sisters sledding race and I am happy to say I took first place!

 Thomas and Abby getting ready to sled, and Jack about to attack with a snowball.

I love seeing my family and I love snowboarding with my husband!

Christmas Break

We couldn't have asked for a better Christmas break. It was filled with family, friends and two full weeks with no work or school! 

It started off great with Micheal and Staley's wedding in the Salt Lake temple.
 Then a week or so later we went to California for their beautiful reception!!

 Christmas in Tucson with the Assante's!

New Year's in Mesa with the Giles! 

Setting off some New Year's fireworks in the backyard.
 It truly was the most wonderful time of the year!
