4th of July

4th of July= Roping in Mormon Lake!!!

For the 4th we went to Mormon Lake, Arizona (near Flagstaff)with my Dad's family to camp and rope. Here are some pictures from weekend.

Sam and "Blackie" waiting to rope.

Little David was the only winner in the Page camp. He placed in the number 11 roping.

This is an example of me trying to be a professional photographer , as you can see, I need a lot of practice. Notice the mud in the arena, it rained and even hailed on us a couple of hours before this run.

Notice that all the "action" pictures are of David. I forgot to charge my camera, so it died within the first couple of hours of our camping trip, which left me with no time to take pictures on anyone else. :(. Also, the camera I am using is brand new, and I haven't quite figured out all the settings, so please excuse the picture color and quality.

Here is a picture of my dad and Raphael. Please excuse my Dad's USC hat, he doesn't want to get his good University of Arizona hat wet.

Alex and Tipling watching by the catchpen. They were my carpool buddies up to the roping.

I just wanted to take a nice little brother picture, and out of the 8 I took, this is the best one. :).

Wedding Update

So I'm sure you all know that Sam & I are getting married on October 11, 2008 in Parker, so I figured I give you an update on our wedding planning. Please watch for our save the date cards, hopefully I will get them out soon! I have had the cards for a week and a half now, and still haven't got them out. I am trying to get the last bit of mailing addresses together before I send them. Our friend Tracy McMurphy designed them, and we absolutely love them. She has started her own company/website that you should check out http://www.dreamdesignsbythm.com/. She also designed my graduation announcement and it's actually posted on her website. Anyway, I have also created a wedding website for Sam & myself. The address is http://pageandopenshaw.weddings.com/. It has our story, wedding details, and some pictures on it. Here are some "engagement pictures" we took at the golf course in Parker that didn't make it to our save the date cards.

Isn't the sunset pretty? I think my Grandpa took this one.

The wedding dress is picked out. I absolutely love it. I found it at Arizona Bridal Warehouse in Mesa, but found it cheaper online in Georgia, so I ordered it and it should be here in September.

Our colors are burnt orange and brown. We want our wedding to have a fall theme/feeling, so the bridesmaid dresses and suits are going to be brown, and the flower girl dress is going to be burnt orange. As for the decorations, we will see. All I have so far is a bunch of wheat hanging upside down in my dads garage :) (thanks dad) for centerpieces and such, the rest still has to be decided.

We have decided to go to Hawaii for our honeymoon! We are going to go to Oahu, so if you know on any restaurants, site seeing, etc. that can't be missed, please let us know!

And I think that's pretty much all I have done! Not bad for only 81 days left right? :) We have a lot of work ahead, but I'm not worried because I know things will just fall into place.
