Weekend Update

Well, we're back from our weekend trip to the cabin.

Highlights:

The drive was absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful mountains and a green, lush valley thanks to the river running through it.

Pizza at ... oh shoot, I don't even know the name of the place. But it was good pizza.

Getting all six of us together again. Klarissa (cabin inviter) and Shelly (other cabin invitee) have been two of my best friends since our DT days of freshman year. We've all been friends with each other and each other's spouses for a long time, but don't get to see each other as often as we like. It was fun to get everyone together.

Church. We went to the local ward and there was this parade of kids that all wanted to share their testimonies. It was awesome to see them all so eager, and of course what came out of their mouths was enlightening and often quite funny. One was telling us all about his dog and how he's a good boy and that his family eats dinner and probably would have continued saying everything that came to his mind if he hadn't been stopped by a loving leader.

Rambling walk before church. We didn't know what time it started, so we got there a bit early and decided to take a walk around the town. It's a fairly small, rural area, so there was lots to see - horses, giant crickets, and about a million kittens. I was so tempted to take one home (the cats, not the crickets), but respect for my landlords stopped me. We really do have awesome landlords.

Coming home. It's always nice to come home, even when the vacation was lovely. It was even nicer because we took the time to clean the house before we left, so we came home to a calm and welcoming house instead of a disaster. So nice!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
