Day 198: My Birthday

July 7th, 2012
I love when the time is my birthday.  November 23rd. :)

Day 197: The Big Cut

July 6th, 2012
Well I did it.  Cut off 12 inches of my hair.  It feels so liberating and I LOVE IT. 

Day 196: Beautiful Day

July 5th, 2012
This is me and Alaina in a pretty mountain area above SLC. We went up to take pictures of my long hair before I cut it all off. (If anyone asks, we were not in middle of the road.)

Day 195: Freedom, Independence, Liberty

July 4th, 2012
I could have posted a picture of a really pretty, bright firework.  But I really like the way the firework is fuzzy.  So HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Day 194: Lemonade on a hot summer day

July 3rd, 2012
Brayden loves to smile while drinking lemonade from the lemonade stand.  That big puffy thing behind that house that looks like a cloud? That's the smoke from the fire in Alpine.  Utah is literally on fire.

Day 193: A ball of cheese

July 2nd, 2012
I have a secret. I am in love with the moon.

Day 192: This is Me

July 1st, 2012
Hello, my name is Bekah Boyd and I do take pictures of myself sometimes.  This was one of those times.

Day 191: Going Home

June 30th, 2012
We rode the bus home; while the pioneers walked the whole distance.  They probably didn't stop for ice cream on the way home like we did.  This is one of the only pictures I took on Saturday.  It's my good friend, James Coca in his straw hat. 

Day 190: Trekkin'

June 29th,2012
The Pioneers of the Lehi 26th Ward.  This was at the end of our 10 mile trek.  We were all dirty, sweaty, and exhausted. But we had a camp to go back to with dinner waiting for us, and the pioneers had to set up and make their own dinners then do the exact same thing the next day.  It really is remarkable what the pioneers did. I'm so grateful for their example and sacrifice.

Day 189: Sweetwater Crossing

June 28th, 2012
This is the Sweetwater River that the priests carried us across.  It was one of the most spiritual places on trek and I can't imagine trying to cross it in the middle of the winter with ice chunks flowing through the 2 feet of water.  

Day 188: Setting up Camp

June 27th, 2012
It was really windy in Wyoming and as you can see from the lovely picture above, the tents flew a lot while setting them up.

Day 187: A Modern Pioneer

June 26th, 2012
Getting in the mood for trek. (Don't judge.)

Day 186: My Long Lost Journal

June 25th, 2012
Found my old journal that has about 4 months of my life in it.  What a great find.

Day 185: Scripture Study

June 24th, 2012
Sammi fell asleep while reading her scriptures tonight.  

Day 184: I love you.

June 23rd, 2012
I have taught him well.

Day 183: Sunset in American Fork

June 22nd, 2012
Went on a walk with my grandma to get cake and took some pictures of the sunset.

Day 182: Nostalgia

June 21st, 2012
These are the crystals on my grandma's lamp. They remind me of when she used to live in St. George and I thought they were so cool when I was five and six.

Day 181: Black Amethyst Lotion

June 20th, 2012
This lotion literally saved me during St. George. We ate, slept, swam, lathered up the lotion, and watched TV.

Day 180: 100 degree weather

June 19th, 2012
I love that the building in the background is distorted by the heat wave. 

Day 179: Sunset in St. George

June 18th, 2012
The sunsets in St. George are beautiful.

Day 178: Midnight Snack

June 17th, 2012
This is what vacations are all about.

Day 177: That's my Twin

June 16th, 2012
I think the picture says it all.

Day 176: Light in the Dark

June 15th, 2012
This is the view from the condo in St. George. Pretty, eh?

Day 175: St. Georgy

June 14th, 2012
This is the bedroom that I shared with Brayden and Sammi.  It was a party.

Spent my week studying for the ACT, well mostly procrastinating my studying for the ACT. 

Day 159: Finally catching up!

June 7th, 2012
This is the fabric of the new dress I got from Target for 15 dollars.  It was the first time I've really gone shopping in a long time.
