It was so much fun to see everyone from Canada!!! We were so glad we got our new camera b/c we took all our pictures with it : )

The Car

This last weekend we went to Canada, with my brother and his wife, for my cousins wedding it was very fun! On our way home, however, we had some major car trouble!

Our FIRST and most traumatizing breakdown happened about 120 miles south of the Canadian border. I can't remember what it is that broke, but it was something that helped feed the battery. We got towed to the nearest city spent the night there and waited the next morning for it to get fixed

Outside our car on our first breakdown

After we got the car fixed the next day we were able to travel quite a bit, but then about a mile north of the I-15 Rexburg turn-off the car got a broken bolt that holds the belt so the belt shredded. Thane (my Brother) knows a lot about cars so he was able to fix it and it only delayed us for about 60-80 minutes.

We were a lot more calm the second time we broke down so we played cards while Thane fixed the car.

When we got home, ironically enough, Jeremy's and my tire was completely flat. We are now driving around on a spare until we can get into discount tires.
We got home over 24 hours later than we had thought we would. We missed several classes and other things (including Katie's kickboxing class, sry Katie!) but we are so happy to be home!

So I am sure you are all tired of looking at McCain and Palin when you come to our blog so here is a new story.

Several weeks ago Jeremy and I went to the "meet the firms" event. I put Jeremy's name in a drawing and look what we won! I just picked up our prize this afternoon. Thanks so much Ernst and Young!

This is the front of the camera.

Here is the deal I don't like McCain. There I've said it. Glad to get that off my back: )

Back last Winter/Spring when McCain beat Mitt Romney in the primaries I was quite bitter. I felt that there were some dirty politics going on to get him to win. But, hey that's politics so I have tried to look past that and see McCain for his good qualities even though it has been extremely difficult to do that until. . . he announced his VP. I love Sarah Palin. She is my new hero! I felt that under Palin the McCain camp was going to start standing for things I stand for. But, alas, I feel that I have been mistaken. McCain is still McCain. To make things clearer I will bullet point my recent complaints against Senator McCain.

  • Support of the 7 billion dollar bailout- I have been very disappointed in President Bush and Senator McCain for trying to push this bill through. Republicans should be for small government and people being held accountable for their actions. This bailout bill is pretty much the government buying companies (oh by-the-way they are buying with the national credit card) and trying save people from their own greed and mistakes. It's a nice idea, but it is going to hurt everyone in the long run.
  • Not being proactive enough in his campaign - in the Republican Convention McCain (paraphrasing) said "I will fight, will you fight with me!" but it doesn't seem like he has fought that much. There are places where Obama posters have been out for over a year, but yet it is still fighting tooth and nail to try and get the McCain camp to give out McCain posters.
  • Leaving Michigan - McCain decided to stop campaigning in Michigan b/c it is too hard. He sees that Michigan is full of liberals who have been hurting themselves economically and they are not about to change so he has stopped campaigning there and decided to just let them hurt themselves. This is what Sarah Palin said after she found out that McCain was pulling out of Michigan "Oh, come on! You know, do we have to? Do we have to call it there?" Todd and I, we'd be happy to get to Michigan and walk through those plants of the car manufacturers. We'd be so happy to get to speak with the people there in Michigan who are hurtin' because the economy is hurtin'. Whatever we can do, and whatever Todd and I can do in realizing what their challenges in that state are, as we can relate to them and connect with them and promise them that we won't let 'em down in the administration. I want to get back to Michigan and I want to try!" - so McCain wants to give up while Palin wants to keep on fighting.
I could go on, but I realize this is probably boring for most of you. Wouldn't it be nice if Palin was running for President instead of McCain. Or better yet Romney had made it and Palin was his VP! Oh well! I guess that one thing that is going for McCain is that he is WAY better than Obabama.
