Rootbeer Taste Test!

So we had a fun filled evening with root beer taste testing. And let me tell ya it was hilarious. We got the idea from the Butler family and Lorri Thomas' blog. So we had to try it out for ourselves. Gayle went and got all the root beer and was the official hander outer. While we tortured our bellies.

There was plenty of tasting and contemplating.......




And then there was plenty of burping!


And the winning brand was .............................................

Henry Weinhardt's! That was followed by a a couple of brands we would have never suspected. Big K, Big Fizz and a couple others that were the store's brand. So if we show up to a party with one of those brands, it's not because we are cheap it is because we know which ones taste the best!

2 gold medals in one day!!! Haha!!!!

Rexburg had a tennis tournament for the 4th of July weekend and I played singles and mixed doubles with my friend Jeff. I won the singles bracket and we won the mixed doubles too!!! It was actually not a very big tournament so it was a little bit easier to win...haha! But it was a really fun weekend! I think I might wear my medals to church tomorrow!!

Doubles Tournament @ BYU-I!!!

This weekend for school we had a doubles tournament! I got to play w/ my friend Jeff and we did really well!! Since I was playing mixed doubles we had to play up in the boys bracket. We beat 2 boys teams splitting sets both matches and then we had to play my coach and his brother. They are amazing tennis players. We didn't win that match but we played really well. We played tennis all day long...from 9 in the morning till 3:30 that afternoon!! Overall it was an amazing day!! I even have a nice sunburn after!!!

Justin's "reflection" pic

I thought that this was a good example of a reflection (especially if you look at the last definition for reflection). I didn't take this picture, but I wanted to use it anyways. If that is cheating, then let me know and I will post another one. If not, then looks like I am the first one to post this week!
