Noodle wrestling! Ahhh... That's quite the list. We'll need pictures of all these activities for sure. I think I shall write my own now! What fun!

I started a list of which ones I wanted in on, but then it got to long to put on as a comment. Just count me in for a lot of them. As for #15, that is just gross and I cannot believe you would do such a thing! Love you!

Rangi said...

You are going to have a truly epic summer! Please invite Rig to the TMNT trilogy. I think he is of age.

cheryl said...

As I always say, "Too much fun!" But you forgot the Salt Lake connect pass. That's probably good for 15 or 20 more things to do on your list.

Rachel, you are just the coolest chick ever! (And beautiful too.) You have inspired my summer by posting such a great list. I LOVE the picture of your hands on the Temple door, awesome! Here's to summer!
