Jonathan, Katrina & Soren
Jon and Katrina were married in May 2008. We live in Houston, TX. Katrina graduated from Utah State and plays the "SugaMama" role as Jon continues with his studies at U of H. We love getting lost and having all sorts of crazy adventures. Jon is nice and Katrina is honest. :) We are first time parents to Soren Idrios. He has bulldog cheeks! These are our stories.

Jon, my love!

After the Honeymoon....

Jon and I had a wonderful summer. He kept on working hard and I did an internship with Beneficial Financial Group. It was the best job I ever had, I have never cried on my last day of work from anywhere, but I cried all the home on the trax train. I know it's pathetic, but I really loved my job. We also spent our summer trying to play as much as possible. Here are some pictures from hiking with our friends, the Coopers!

We also went into the Uintahs with my Dad, Wyatt, and Martin. It was Jon's first time up King's Peak. Luckily for me, I hit my "wall" before we got to Anderson's Pass. It made the last hour of boulder climbing quite enjoyable. It was a really great trip. Martin kicked everyone's butt.

Habitat for Humanity is a great foundation. We went to a charity black tie ball at the Capitol Building. Okay, so we knew about 4 days before that we were going to go. Renting a tux is a fairly easy process but trying to find a modest formal for someone older than 15 that won't pay more than 50 bucks is truly a feat. I found one though and we had a great time with everyone from Envision Lending Group. I especially enjoyed the moments when Jon and I were the only ones on the dance floor! It felt like Junior Prom all over again.

Next update... "Katrina wins Monopoly against the money master", "Lost on the 4th of July", "The Galbraiths go to the zoo and turn into turtles", and "Camping in the house!"

Tulum, Mexico

Jonathan and I were fortunate enough to be able to honeymoon in Mexico thanks to some dear friends! We had a blast!
Tulum is a little beach-side village 2 hours south of Cancun. We got there late at night but had a friendly shuttle driver and we just enjoyed how warm it was. I am a huge fan of humidity and had been missing out!
We stayed in a hut! This hut had no electricity but did have running ocean water in the shower. I loved taking salty showers and enjoying the sunsets in the beach with candlelight! Also, it didn't have walls, but glass-like windows. No privacy, but no one else was there and it was awesome to fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to beautiful sunrises. It was the perfect adventure for us. A few little animals resided with us, baby crabs, some iguanas and another little critter that a ate a hole through one of our bags (the material and the zipper!)
Cabanas Copal is the name of the hostal where we stayed and it was the best one on the beach. We were about 30 steps from the tide in front of us and 2 steps behind us was the jungle!
The people in town were friendly and we enjoyed authentic food and entertainment. Speaking of the food, we miss it and now eat tacos about twice a week!
3 of the days we were there we had a little scooter and went all over the countryside on it. We went to ruins and cenotes. Jon even got me to go snorkeling! I was so scared but it turned out to be the best ever! Even better than the off-roading we did on the scooter!
We headed to Chichen Itza in a PT Cruiser on our last day. I loved Chichen Itza it looks like something out of a movie set. I hated the PT Cruiser, what a silly car. Sorry to anyone who drives one.
Only one time did we get eaten alive by mosquitos and that was not Jon's fault but mine for wanting to go exploring in the marshland ruins. Duh?!
I also found that people in Mexico who say that they speak English actually do speak English, unlike Equatorianos who say that they speak English but really only speak pickupline. :)
We were sad to come home but will definitely be going back. And we would recommend to anyone that thinks they want to vacation in Cancun, to get out and keep heading south. Cancun is fun for shopping and nightclubs, but if you want real relaxation and natural beauty away from the crowds and tourists and you aren't afraid to "go native" for awhile, Tulum is the place for you!
Check out the slideshow there's lots o' photos!

Okay, for anyone who may still be checking this pathetic blog wanna-be...

We are starting the huge update!

I will be participating in time travel, it's very dangerous and the whole process is very risky, but it works and I can take you with me!

We shall start on May 28th, 2008 and travel up at high velocity rates until our "past selves" meet up with our "future selves" and become our "present selves". Did that make sense to you? Yeah, me neither. :)

Basically, I want to catch everybody up on what's been going on in our lives! I'm going to start with May and pick out the big stuff through the past 3-ish months until we are on the same page again! It will take place in bits though, over the next week or so.

You and I know that this is the blog-marathon event of the year! Don't miss out!
