The great adventure of 2012

All summer long one of my brothers and I talked about going on a road trip at the conclusion of summer semester. The plan was to leave the Monday after I finished finals, and then start making our way west. The original plan was to travel to lots of Temples(Monticello, Snowflake, Las Vegas, Redlands, Mesa, Albuquerque, and Lubbock), a route of about 3600 miles. However, I got really sick on the first day. So instead we just went to Albuquerque and Lubbock. A shorter trip than originally planned, but still good. 
Here are some pictures:

We went to Garden of the Gods, near Colorado Springs, CO.

 The Albuquerque Temple:

Statue outside of Old Town Albuquerque. I think it's Don Francisco Cuervas. I don't remember though.

We rode the tram to the top of Sandia Mountain.

People in Roswell, NM, sure love their aliens. Seriously, there is alien stuff everywhere.

Getting ready to go inside the Carlsbad Caverns.

The Lubbock Temple:

This picture should be first. Jacob was with us for the first leg of the journey. We took him home to Colorado. But first we had to stop and see the atomic cannon.

Megan is SUPER cool

Janae: "Joey, why is Megan cool?"
Joey: "Why is she cold?"
Janae: "No. Why is she cool?"
Joey: "Because she is."
Janae: "I need a better reason than that."
Joey: "Too bad. She just is."

Joey is correct, Megan is just cool. However, Megan wants her head to grow bigger, so here are some more reasons as to why she is so cool...:)

1. She is 29(at least for a few more days). 2+9=11. Eleven is a legitimate number.

2. She loves popcorn. I personally do not have fond feelings toward popcorn, but she is obsessed with it. Her dedication to popcorn makes her cool. 

3. She played the baritone in band. I bet if she tried really hard, she could even sing baritone in a choir. I do not possess either of those capabilities.

4. She is very pretty. Even when you're looking down on her. :)

5. She has been to Denmark, Lithuania, and Sweden. That is cool. 

6. She can run a 5K whilst acknowledging the placement of her head. She is truly talented.

7. She has been to where to Moomi people live. People should read more Finnish children stories(or at least have a Dad who will read them to you), because they are awesome. Megan is so cultured. 

8. She knows how to climb trees, and she even invites her friends(family) to climb with her. She is so considerate. 

9. Her hair curls really, really, REALLY well. Color me jealous. 

Those are nine of the reasons why "I wish I were as cool as Megan". I'm going to stop at nine reasons though, because it is an odd number. I like odd numbers the best. Don't judge.
