(wow... must have been hilarious)
Last weekend Chels, Gord & Tydon came and stayed the night with us... even though they live in Utah now.. I love it! and Friday night we rang in St. Patty's Day early with a GREEN dinner.
The bro's re-united!
Jeremy, Nelson, and JC after the jazz game... best high school friends & college roommies
At the Jazz game on St. Patricks Day... apparently I was the ONLY one that remembered it was St. Patty's Day... either that or Jeremy was right when he said people stop dressing up in green when they are about 12.
so fun to see these girls, brings back the good ol poky days. i was roommates with Hayley my last year of college, and JC was rooming with Jeremy... we set them up and the rest is history.. their kids can thank us later.
Who's the leprechaun?
Lace kicked our trip to St. George off right with a jaw breaker in cheek... while slurping a Double Gulp
... and MR was the hit all weekend. such a good boy & LOVED the hike.
Peace, Love, and War
stayed with grams again. wish we could have seen her more.. she had to take off for a wedding the morning after we got there.. but THANKS for letting us stay grammie.. love you love you love you.
...... Did I mention that we were a TINY mislead by my bro in law JARED that there may quite possibly be a water hole at the end of our hike that we could swim in. Lace and I had the fab idea planned to lay out at the end of our hike in the 80 degree St. George weather. So Cali-geared up we headed for the mountains and the water. You betcha... SWIM SUITS, BEACH SKIRTS, and even threw on a couple cute pairs of dangly earrings.
Never in my worst nightmares have I gotten so many ridiculous and awe struck stares from people in the appropriate TEVA & North Face gear... I mean come on... my skirt is FLORAL print... AHHHH. I could die just thinking about it. I'm really not one to get embarrassed real easily, but after about the 20th head turn I could have crawled in a tarantula hole and die. (we did take off our earring about 2 minutes up the mountain)
So... when we finally reached the infamous "water hole".. we were greeted by a great big sign.."NO SWIMMING"... and the water was a dark brown/green color and about 2 feet deep, not to mention at the top of the mountain it had rapidly reached a teeth chattering 40 degrees with snow spotting the red rock. and you guessed it.. NO JACKETS, we were expecting the beach at the peak of grueling hike I guess... our husbands couldn't have enjoyed it more... not the hike.. lace and I's foolish "legally blonde" actions.
I have to defend us by saying we really are NOT the frilly.. prom dress while you hike... pink addicted ladies we acted like this weekend, but we learned our lesson. Next time Zions Park meets us.. our TEVA's will be shined up... our bandannas strapped to our foreheads, and we'll leave the floral and levi skirts at the pool.
