After camping and Transformers!

Hello everyone the reads this or the one person that reads this. Anyway, I just got back from my 4th of July camping trip up to Redfish Lake near Stanley. I never thought Idaho would have such a beautiful place. Seriously it was like a beach out in the mountains. Except on this beach you can be boating and you can be using jet-skis. It was awesome. The temperature was just perfect. The water was not that cold. And then there was sand to lay on and to chill on. And the background was the Sawtooth Mountains. Honestly, I have never seen anything so beautiful. Sharen was talking it up as if it was so great and I really didn't believe her. I was like it will be like any other place in Idaho that people say is beautiful. It usually means that A place you have to have a life jacket on to play in the water or you have to be boating. But when I saw it, I just fell in love. The only problem is actually getting there. From here in Boise, it is all windy and really crazy and slow to get there, but it was well worth the drive. We went for a family reunion and that was fun too. Sharen and I made these litttle necklaces with a rock that was broken into two so we both have a piece of it. We also watched a slideshow of pictures that the family had sent to Sharen's Aunt. I didn't know that Sharen had sent pictures but she sent some great ones! I am so lucky that she does a great job on those things.

But all did not go so smoothly. When camping there are always dangers. First, we took a wrong turn in Stanley and went the opposite direction to the lake. But that turned out OK because by the time we got to the lake, Sharen's family had just gotten there. But the one thing that did pester us through the whole time we were there was a bear. I have never gone camping while a bear was around, so it was bound to happen. They called it a yearling. Through the week we were there, it was in Sharen's Uncle and her Aunt's campground. The last day we were there it showed itself during the day and I finally saw it. It was a decent sized bear but nothing to big. We did get a picture but it's on Sharen's Mom's camera. So after I get it I will post it on the blog.

I really wanted to see Transformers before left last Monday but we didn't have time and we were leaving the next day after work. So that meant that I had to wait until the next Monday to watch it. But instead of just catching one movie, we decided to sneak into Licence to Wed. This was one of the smartest decisions we have ever made together. I was like a little kid again in Transformers. I had this huge grin on my face with all of the machines and the special effects going on. I had this sense in my body that I was 5 years old again and I was renting Transformer videos from the video store with my dad. It was awesome. The only thing was that there was some horrible acting in it. Shia LeBeouf did a good job with the girl Megan Fox. They had some good chemisty along with Shia's actor parents. But the rest of the characters were not that good of actors. But the action scenes made up for all of it and more. It was a great movie. I loved the movie and I want to watch it again and again and again...

I really wanted to see License to Wed because of John Krasinski. He is Jim from The Office, which by the way is the best show on television. If you don't watch it, watch it now! Anyway, I must say that it was a little disappointing. There were some funny parts, but Krasinski did not have the right cast around him. It did have Angela, Kevin, and Kelly from The Office and their parts were funny but Mandy Moore is not that great of an actress and Robin Williams needs a new gig. It was probably the most disappointing movie of the summer. That is how bad it was compared to how funny it could have or should have been. But since we snuck into it and only paid 3 dollars in parking. It came out to a pretty cheap 2 movies. And no, I don't feel bad. One time we got a small package of candy for 3 or 4 dollars. 3 or 4 DOLLARS!! Seriously, movie theaters are gouging. Paying 10 bucks for a medium popcorn and a medium drink that you can't get a refill for. That is too much! So I don't feel bad.

Just one quick link. I got this at work today. Extreme Makeover does not just go to the East Coast. Here is proof:
