Certified

It's official... As of Saturday, we are officially PADI certified open water SCUBA DIVERS!!! It's been an almost 3 month process, but we are finally done and all set for Cancun! We started at the end of January, with our Discover dive. In March we took our first 3 classes and did our first 2 open water dives, and then last weekend we finished up our last 2 classes and our last 2 open waters up at the Crater in Heber. The Crater is a pretty bizarre place, and I've never really seen anything like it. It's basically this huge cave that sticks up out of the ground and is full of water that just comes up out of the ground. The best part is that the water is a delicious 93 degrees, although that also means it's too warm for anything to survive, so there's not much to look at, but it's better than Bear lake in the winter, right? Anyway they've basically drilled out the side of it, so nuts like us can strap on a tank of air and dive down 40 feet. There's not much to it other than that, but we had a blast anyway. It's just fun to learn a new skill, even if the only things to look at where pvc pipes (hung down as depth markers), a huge wagon wheel (don't ask me why), and some plastic aligators and turtles... oh well, at least they tried. So I guess we're scuba divers now.

One of my best friends just moved to Eagle Mountain and I looked on mapquest and the two of you literally live within one mile of each other. I was wondering if she was in your ward. Her name is Emily Russon and this is her blog: emilyhaycock.blogspot.com. You guys should be friends!

Also, Rob and I are in Ogden right now and we want to visit your family, so maybe you should bring your cute kids and meet us in Logan... or maybe we should come down to your place!

WOW, Cori!!! You know I am proud of you for going out of your comfort zone and trying something that originally really wasn't appealing. Way to go, and I am glad that you love it:)
