In Washington

Jon and I had nothing going on this week so we decided to jump in the car and drive up to see my family in Washington. We arrived on Friday night and will tentatively stay through next weekend (this depends on if we get work and have to go back to CA early). I just love being back home in WA. This is my favorite place to be in the summer. There is just so much to do. We have a fun week planned. We are floating the river, riding horses, playing golf, water skiing and inner tubing behind my uncles boat, hanging by my aunts awesome pool and enjoying in my mom's beautiful gardens and 9 acres of forest. I guess this is the closest I will get to have an adult summer camp I talked about a few weeks ago (the only thing I am missing is the zip line).

There is just no place like home (I can say that because I have lived all over the country).

I love Summer Time!

I was sitting on my porch enjoying the sun thinking about how much I love summer. I enjoy drinking lemonade, reading a book by the pool, playing in a river and just about every other cliche summer activity there is. As I sat there I began to think how cool it would be to have an adult summer camp. Where you slept in cabins (not fancy ones but the crusty ones you slept in as a kid), paddle canoes, play on rope courses, go hiking, make smores and sneak out of our cabin to meet up with the boy cabin. Just like when you were a kid. Maybe it is just me but I think that would be so much fun.

Living in California I have the luxury of having warm weather most the year but there is just something in the air that makes people happier this time of year.

A few weeks ago we went go cart racing with a bunch of stunt guys and had an amazing time. Here is a picture taking right before I went on the track for the first heat of the night. I definitely will go back. Plus it helps with my stunt driving skills so I can consider it work training :)

Transformers the movie opens this week. I worked on that movie last summer. There should be some great action scenes. I am in some of the big action sequences running and dodging from explosions, the robots (which are just poles in the street when we actually shot it) and things flying through the air.I haven't seen it yet but hopefully I will see it this week.

Jon and I are in a trailer for another movie that is untitled which is shown before Transformers starts. We fall down the stairs as people are running. We did 10 takes and 4 rehearsals for the stair fall. Yes, that means Jon and I had to do 14 stair falls over each other. We were padded up but we still ended up pretty bruised. It was some fun stuff! Let me know if you guys like the movie.
