life documentation is an interesting concept. sometime i wonder what kind of things my parents would have documented if they would have had access to iphones or instagram accounts while in college and beyond…. however, i am extremely grateful to be a part of the last generation to NOT have their entire life documented on facebook from birth.
this morning, while laying in my bed and going through my photos trying to compile my favorites for the month of june, i was struck as to just how great this summer has been so far. seriously! so much fun! i guess you could say that my theme for june could be work hard play harder… but since this is the last summer of my undergraduate, i am all for it. cue the photos!
kourtni and i hiked table rock one saturday and got COMPLETELY sun burned… one day before leaving for hawaii…. smart! //we went to the saturday market and got mini donuts… oh, how i love them. // my dad and kourt waiting for a delayed flight to hawaii // cheap entertainment with recently purchased neck pillows in the airport.
finally leaving boise after a a nine hour delay! // but not before taking refuge on the upper deck of the airport. does it kind of look like we’re on a cruise ship? // airplane sleeping by kourtni //waiting for the rental car in hawaii in the middle of the night.
first glances at THE BEACH!! // giovanni’s shrimp truck lunch // i don’t like snocones but i DO like ice cream, therefore i made it a point to make my mother spoon feed me the ice cream out of the bottom her her sno cone when the time came. perfect! // a large quantity of hawaiian shirts for sale in oahu, of course!
our little beach house in laie// the beach! all that tan has peeled off by now i think. // lindsay making fun of me right after i got completely pummeled by a wave. // kourtni straight chillin reading her book.
payton and i preferred to sit on the beach while kourtni and lindsay went for a sunset swim// ukuleles. i can’t believe i didn’t buy one. // sunglasses shop photography// our first taste of true coconut water… so good.
my dad trying to barter for a pair of sunglasses. that asian guy would not budge! fourteen dollars or bust, billy ball! // pearl harbor memorial // the summer of overalls is in full force // this sunrise was right outside our back door every morning at 5 am. not mad.
lindsay and me// sea turtles at waimea bay! // this is how my mom likes her pictures taken always// payton’s alter ego PAYDEN aka the white rapper with a little bit of a lisp… yeah he would kill me if he ever knew i snagged a photo.
more sunset spam // hungry and sunburned and getting a little weird// the largest hamburger ever! cue the fork. // sunrise spam.
early morning jogs on the beach// palm trees near the temple// paddleboarding rentals! they made sure to give us the ones with extra buoyancy but payton still managed to fall off. // hanging loose for the last time.
happy 25th anniversary to my parents!// again with the beach spam // speaking of spam, heres some spam flavored macadamia nuts! yum yum? // i made kourtni buy me this cheese plate on our flight home…. well actually i just suggested that she buy it, and much to my delight she did! we split these little four crackers amongst the three of us, kourtni, lindsay, and me. yeah…. i was still hungry after my three bites of cheese.
lunch date with my mom at chipotle- she finally likes it! hallelujah! //visiting kourtni at work… she’s the cutest cart girl at albetsons.// i like how they called them dried PLUMS. everyone knows they are prunes and i love them. does that make me roughly 65?
some friends and i have been taco tuesday-ing quite often this summer. fish tacos from rocco’s tacos. so goooooood // don’t you even think about rolling down the hills at the scera shell… // watching summer battle of the bands for a spot to open at the stadium of fire. the strike won! i used to babysit the drummer, FYI //i got this great rug from, wait for it…. WINCO! best find. also, it is dying my carpet underneath. whoops.
kourtni and fred sending me snapchats while fred wears my sun hat. kids these days // this summer b3 yoga has free classes on mondays and saturdays… which kick my asana but i do love it. i’ve been practicing my head stands… ask me about it the next time you see me. // having fun isn’t hard when you’ve got a LIBRARY CARD at the provo library. // i’m still volunteering at la nay when i can…. look at these peas! they were SO GOOD!
with some of the produce i got from la nay i made a pizza… caramelized onions with mozzarella, peaches, and arugula. it was a raving success. // my roommates friend though she could light a candle by holding it close to a lightbulb. yep. // driving to BOISE!// the greatest sunset at a truck stop in wendell, idaho.
my dad brushing his cat. yeah// MORE HAWAIIAN SUNSETS! do you hate me yet? // beach lounging // diana sleeping while i swim and get stung by portugese man o wars..
peanut butter banana sandwiches FTW// these chacos have seen a lot of places. // diana stuck in a tree at waikiki// me stuck on a rock i tried to scale. treacherous!
i love this drive// bubbies ice cream in honolulu… the names of the desserts are vulgar. i like it. // so many chickens just roaming around our tent. //not naked.
diana always looks the most glamorous at airports// guys, i can’t jump. // boots and kimo’s pancakes. i would like some now// i tried lychee in my snocone. still gross. at home we grilled some kebaps! say hello to the grill master// my parents like to leave me gems on my phone// rondo likes to walk himself. don’t even try to take that leash from him…
