Amay-za-zing!!!

My family decided it was about time for a family vacation. We decided to hit up Moab this past weekend and here is the proof that we had some good times.
Arches National Park

This was a really fun hike and I might add that it was "highly strenuous." It was absolutely worth it to make the hike, I highly recommend it. Ty, Courte, Tanner, and I got off the trail somehow and ended up scaling walls in order to get a good view of the "Delicate Arch." I don't know why we all went along with it, we should have known that it wasn't the right way. We made it though and took some beautiful photos.
Muscle Man Ty Courte was really excited to wake up to the sights and sounds of the Super 8 motel that we stayed at,
Deadhorse Point State Park

We thought it would be fun to take our puplers to Moab. Come to find out on the first day of our adventure that animals are not allowed in the National Parks. Wow! Would have been nice to know before we left Logan I even had an awesome dog-sitter on call. Well the visitor center guide told us that they could come with us to Deadhorse Point because it is a State Park. They came with us on a little hike and loved it. Jack was rolling around in the dirt and they were both searching everything out.



Canyonlands National Park

For some reason Tanner, Ty, and Courte thought it was really funny to get really close to the edge or pretend like they were falling off the edge of the trail. It wasn't funny the fall would be fatal and I really didn't appreciate it. But, I guess I can laugh about it now.

Watch this video....Ty & Tanner made an awesome recovery after this daring act.

You may ask yourself what Tanner is doing but there is a perfectly good explanation for his yoga position. Tanner wanted to reinact the postcard that he saw earlier that said "Yoga Moab." This must be a pretty common occurrence for them to advertise it.
This doesn't look very cool to the untrained eye but this rock was really hard and scary to climb up on.
Tanner's artsy side came out on this trip.Ah...serenity.

The Cooley Zone

Some exciting news! Tanner & Chris have been working on a website for Chris that gives an inside look into Chris's day-to-day life for fans. Well some people from Yahoo! Sports caught wind of this and asked if Chris would write a weekly post for them!!! Well today was his first post about his draft day back in 2004 in spirits for the draft this weekend. And to think this all stemmed from my sista, Courteney, getting me interested in posting my exciting life happenings on blogspot.

Oh yeah, Chris was on DC 101, a radio station out in DC, promoting his website and blog and chatting it up with the host Elliot (in the morning). It was cool to listen to him talk about something that Tanner has been so involved in lately. Last night Tanner was seriously excited he said it was “Better than Christmas.” We woke up at 5:30 a.m. this morning to hear the radio interview live, it was fun slash tiring. It was a good interview I will have to try and post it later. Read more...

Summer is in the air...

Friday, April 18, 2008

I am so sick of this crappy weather...but I think summer is in the air. There have been a few golf outings as well as some other fun activities outdoors for us. I love it!

Tanner and I golfing in Virginia with Chris, Christy, Scott, Craig. Christy and I had gotten pedi's & mani's earlier this day and gone shopping then we decided to meet the boys at the golf course. It was a nice day but the men were not so happy, they were all doing really bad...Tanner is displaying how they all felt in this picture. All in all it ended up being pretty fun I think Christy and I cheered them up a bit.


Dr. Nelson's casa

We went up here to film a funny "dunk contest" for Chris's blog. That didn't end up happening but we had fun. There was a little 360 bball action, some fast pitch batting practice, ping-pong, and some artwork de Kirsten as well.

We had a fun time last weekend in Virginia here are a few pics from our celebratory bowling night!











We had lots o' fun in Virginia hanging out with Tanner's fam...So, you may not know the people in these photos. Well you can probably tell who Tanner's bro is, Chris & his fiance Christy. The peeps in the picture with Chris are Christy's parents, Skip and Dee. Finally, the one on the right bottom is Tanner's mom, Nancy, and her new "friend," Tom. I cannot remember a time that I ate out more. It was a great, relaxing weekend!

Tanner and I had an interesting day yesterday. We got into Virginia at 10:30 p.m. to two great voicemails...one for me and one for him. Background: 1. Tanner and his brother have been putting a blog together for Chris, that gives an insider's view into Chris's everyday life, chriscooley47.blogspot.com, a story was written in the Washington Post about it today and 2. I met with a modeling agency, Urban Talent, this afternoon in SLC to try to get signed on with them I also got slipped into a casting session that was going on while I was there. The calls: 1. The blog had 20,000 hits by 7:30!!! and 2. Urban Talent called and said the client loved me and the owner saw me and wanted to make sure they got me to sign on with them! We didn't expect either of these messages it was a great welcome call! Read more...
