Lake Skating

The other day I came across the bucket list I started back in high school and have updated every few years since (bucket list = A list of all the things you want to do before you “kick the bucket.”) I hadn’t looked at it in at least a year or so, and guess what! I crossed off nine things! NINE things! Life is good :)

One of the things I was most excited to cross off was ice skating on a frozen lake. All through my “career” as a figure skater, I dreamed about getting to skate on a frozen lake. It always seemed so magical in the movies! But since I learned to skate in the deserts of Las Vegas, chances to check that off the list were… well.. non-existant.

Luckily we moved to Norway where we got hit with a frigid cold spell that froze all the freshwater lakes and ponds! So we took a break from our crazy work week and had fun with the ice on Mosvanet.

Skating on a frozen lake… CHECK!

It really was just as magical as I had dreamed!

A few other things that got crossed off the list: Go on a cruise, bake a pumpkin pie from a real pumpkin, visit Italy, go backpacking, and donate my hair to Locks of Love!

Summer can’t be over yet!

It was dark this morning when I woke up. For the first time since April. Blah. The days are getting shorter very, very fast up here near the arctic circle. which means summer is pretty much over :( Sad day. Does anyone else feel like the summer is never long enough?

So, before fall comes in full swing, I wanted to share with you a few EXTRA summery photos from our trip home to Utah when we went to Utah Lake with Chris-n-Michi, Michi’s fam, and Brian the bro.

Also, we’re pretty sure our friend Christopher is a closet Baywatch cast member. I mean really. Just take a look at these photos:
