Last week I woke up with lips that people pay money for, but they were making me miserable. I couldn't eat, drink, close my mouth, talk and I was in so much pain. I went to the doctor who wrote me a prescription. He told me that I must have has some kind of allergic reaction, but we couldn't figure out what it was to. He also mentioned that it could have been sun poisoning, but that didn't make sense to me since I am a sun baby and I have never had that kind of reaction to it. After I took the medication the swelling started to go down and now a week later things are pretty much back to normal. Here are some pictures of a couple days AFTER I started to take the medicine, YES, it was worse before, if you can believe it. The first one is a "normal lip" picture so you can compare.

This Wednesday I walked out the door to go to class and much to my surprise (not) it was snowing. ON JUNE 11th IT WAS SNOWING! I was so upset, I just wanted to walk back inside and crawl back in bed. Luckily, it was made up for when it hit the 80's this weekend. It was the perfect day so Dallin and I got together with friends to go and watch the airshow that was going on at the small Rexburg Airport. I was so fun to watch the planes do amazing things and to spend time with friends. Dallin and I both have pretty bad sunburns, but it was completely worth it. After going home for a quick nap we met up with the same friends to head out to the Ice Caves and have some tin foil dinners and smores. We had such a great time!! I took some pictures and video of the Ice cave adventures (see below). We went with two other couples and split up so that we had three girls in our blazer and the three boys were in the truck. I was so great to take the Blazer out through the rough trails and the mud. Once we got there we had to literally climb down into the Ice Caves. The floor was covered with ice and half the time we were on our backs scooting along on the ice because the cave was so small. At the end there was a huge block of ice that people could slide down.
