We just got back from a great trip with the Cook family. We had so much fun, I wish we could share it with everyone. Hopefully the pictures show at least half the fun. Thanks Cook's for all the fun memories. Tyler and I love every second down in Powell, even if we are sunburned. Which we did pretty good not burning this year, if only Jordan could say the same :). The weather was perfect, and only one storm. But storms in Lake Powell are a lot of fun. So here are some of the highlights of the trip.. Oh and I can't forget to add that most all the guys shaved their hair into MOHAWKS! lol


It's here, it's finally here!

I swear Tyler and I wait a whole year for this. Our first trip to Lake Powell for the summer and we are sooo excited. It's the first time on the new house boat, and our official first time being married. I think i'm just excited to get out of the rain, it has rained for 2 weeks straight here in Utah.
We are also ready for a nice break; after Bella had surgery on Tuesday we were sleep deprived, and working our tails off making sure she was ok. I know weird because she is a dog but she is half human ya know :). She was really struggling for the first 2 days, but then she I took her off her sedative and it's amazing how fast she feels better.
Last night we had a awesome night at the cabin with some friends in our neighborhood. We had a blast, playing games, eating, and talking till about 3:00 in the morning! Ty's cabin is up in Sundance. It's so close but yet it feels so far away when we go up there. It was very green, and wet. So much fun! Thanks everyone for coming...
I wish all the wonderful fathers out there a Happy Fathers Day! And a special one to my awesome Dad and Father in law. I love them both so much! It was one thing to grow up being a daddy's girl, being so close with my dad, and now to have 2 wonderful "dads" in my life.... I couldn't ask for more. Love you...


Peyton Ferney!

Today my sweet nephew turned one! We love him so much, he is such a happy little boy. I just wish I could see him more. It's crazy when my lil bro has a one year old, and I haven't been married a year yet.
Happy Birthday Peyton, we love you and wish we could have been there....



Now that school is out and I have a lot of time on my hands I'm going to try and keep busy by making jewelry. I already have a couple orders for watch bands (the bumbles), but please let me know if you would like me to make you one! I can make them for much cheaper. It's also really fast and easy to make bracelets of any color.. So either call me, or email is easy too rachelfcook@gmail.com.



Every Tuesday Tyler leaves and plays ball with friends from 6-midnight. A long time I know. He starts early, works out, then plays. So every Tuesday I stay at home with Bella. Tonight I was extremely bored, thought about going to the gym and instead sat and laughed at Bell while she barked at me for not playing with her. She honestly whines if you aren't looking at her, petting her, or just giving her any kind of attention every 5 minutes or so. It was then I realized it is a good thing I have her or else my Tuesdays would be REALLY boring.



Question: Does anyone know how to get gum out of jeans and dress pants? Yes that's right, not just a piece of gum a WHOLE PACK of gum.

This is the second time in one month that my sweet hubby has forgot to clear his pockets. First chap stick which you can't get out a shirts, but I can replace the shirts. Now 2 weeks later gum. Of course it had to happen when my most expensive pair of jeans were in the wash. All I can do is laugh now and try to figure out how to save 4 pairs of dress pants and my fav pair of jeans..



I had a crazy experience this weekend. The last month I have had this tooth just killing me. I ignored it for as long as I could, Tyler and I went to the baseball game Friday night and I was to the point where I couldn't even close my mouth. Saturday comes my friend Tanya and I were laying out at the pool when she decides we will go to her office (she works at a dentist office) take and x-ray and figure out what is going on. Long story short I had a huge abscess under my tooth we just weren't sure why. Soooo that night at 8:30 I left a movie went to the office and had my tooth REMOVED yes removed. It turns out that tooth had fractured down in the root and the only way to fix it was to get rid of it. SO PAINFUL, now here I sit without a tooth hahaha. I have to wait 3months for my gums and jaw to heal then get a replacement. Crazy crazy. At least it is on the bottom in the back, I have always had really healthy teeth. It was no surprise that something crazy would happen though :)
