One Herzog Year in Review

It has been over a year since my last post here. So much has happened. Fortunately, we have lots of pictures and videos. Here, for your enjoyment, is May 2012-April 2013 in review.

May 2012
We went to Zion National Park with some good friends to see the solar eclipse. We had a lot of fun camping and hiking in the park.

 June 2012
 I started my dream internship with the US Forest Service in Pleasant Grove. It was absolutely AMAZING! I got to split my time between hiking, doing maintenance and interacting with the public. The people I worked with were fantastic!

My office every day

This is a horrible picture. I was trying to get a shot of the butterfly crawling on my shirt. Little did I know that this would be the only picture I would take the ENTIRE summer of me in my uniform...had I known that, I would have at least smiled.

This is me and the trail crew. Great group! We had a lot more fun than this picture shows. We decided to take a 'tough' picture after having hauled two truck bed loads of stuff. 
I was also a part of a great writing group. We decided to meet on campus for what our friend Lorren called a gondola. We thought: cool! I didn't know that BYU had a gondola on campus. After about 20 minutes of looking, we realized that she meant a gazebo, not a gondola. It was still a cool place to get together.

We would tell creepy stories to each other
July 2012
I went to the July 4th balloon festival! I can't wait to take Sammy this coming July.

We also made a trip to Florida. John and Sammy were there for three weeks, and I flew in for a week.

My topsy-turvy garden started producing (despite the lawn mowers hacking it to pieces twice!) and we made a few trips to the local water park.

September 2012
John got a bike and we did some riding as a family.

October 2012
We went on some Fall hikes.

November 2012
We got a dog--an English Bulldog named Winston

He has grown quite a bit since we got him!
We had an early snowstorm and had some fun playing in the white stuff.

December 2012
 We got a family portrait taken.

And we had a wonderful Christmas.

We also had a family snow day.

January 2013
Sammy and I did some ice fishing.

John continued to work hard in school.
