LogoThere are
people with my name in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

My friend Diana had this on her blog, and I thought it would be fun to look up. Who would've thought there were this many people with my name in the world. Just for fun, I looked it up with my maiden name, and there were 7. I'm curious how many of those have my middle name too. Crazy!

We've now been back from my family reunion for more than two weeks, and I'm finally getting some pictures on here. Unfortunately, I suck at remembering to take pictures. So, I don't have really any from the actual reunion, but we did take some when we drove up to Crater Lake. This is seriously the coolest lake I've ever seen in person. It was formed when a volcano collapsed in on itself a bajillion years ago. Over time the rain water and runoff from the snow pack made it this gorgeous lake. The water is so clear and blue, and apparently so pure you can drink it without doing anything to it. Sadly, we didn't go down to the lake, the hike down to it is on the other side from where we were, and it's quite a long and steep hike, or so I've heard. One day... Anyway, it's also the deepest or second deepest lake in America, I think, and the 4th deepest in the world. Really cool. Everyone should go see it at least once in their lifetime.

The lake in all it's glory. The island is called Wizard Island and there are boat tours to it. Nice.

I went and bought Breaking Dawn last night at midnight in Medford, Oregon. Yup, I drove all the way here for it. Just kidding, we are here for a family reunion this weekend, and we actually found the local Barnes and Noble, called and reserved copies and went to their release party. Yup, we are die hard fanatics. Nah, I don't think it's that bad, we didn't wear prom dresses to the party. I couldn't believe what some of the girls here were wearing. The chick who got a prize for the way she was dressed, was wearing a very short, not very modest (or attractive) skirt. That seemed to be the way a lot of the girls were dressed. I'd hate to see what their actual proms look like. Anyway, we're having fun here in Southern Oregon. It's only about 10 degrees cooler than Utah, so we're still quite warm here.
