a trip of comedians

Such a great weekend of fun and freedom! Everyone on the trip was hilarious and I never stopped laughing. Nate Rob was in rare form and I could not stop laughing and egging him on. We went on an extreme rafting trip where we nearly lost some girls in 3-ordeal (a rapid that you should never take, and that tipped two out of 4 rafts and dumped about 18 people out into the rapids). The raft I was on perfection. We didn't tip, no one fell out and we got to the boat port perfectly. It was a good raft full of strong paddlers. The water was really high and the river was raging the whole time. It was one of the most thrilling things to see the huge rapids ahead and have our guide yelling "PADDLE!! Don't stop paddling!". Nate Rob was making me laugh so hard it was hard to paddle. I want to get back on that river so bad!

After the rafting ordeal we went back, cleaned up and had a BBQ and went to Idaho Falls Fireworks. They were the best I have ever seen in my life. It was like a finale the whole time and they lasted longer than any other fireworks I have ever been to. It was incredible. It was a perfect 4th and I wish it didn't have to end so soon. Here are some pictures I stole from Mckay, who also blogged about the experience:

And here are some really great quotes and/or memories from the trip:
"Everything I touch gets pregnant"
-The movie line game (Beethoven, Titanic, Ninja Turtles)
-Nate Rob's mom "Busted! Call me!"
-"Specifically"
-The ridiculous questions during stargazing. No one could form a coherent question, especially Nate Rob. "What is the definition of the moon?"
-"No....it's not a newt"
-"OMG!! They have 'Meet Joe Black'!
-"They're listening to weird music in that car"
-Nate Rob talking to the rapids, "Not now, not like this!"
-"RAPIDS!!"
-"I'm gonna hit you up at 3AM"
-"That movie is off the market"
-"I still haven't decided if I'm going to go"
-Syd's F bomb
-"You look like two different races. I mean species"
