A perfect Memorial Day

St. George is our weekend get away. When we need to relax and have some good old down time that is  where we head. We fill our time with relaxation, swimming, soaking up the sun, eating lots of food that is probably not so good for us, and exploring the great outdoors. 
Memorial Day weekend was no exception. We swam a lot and just enjoyed our time away from all responsibilities. When it was time to come back we had a hard really hard. We were going to go home on Monday night and then we decided not to leave until Tuesday morning and then we pushed it all the way to Tuesday night, after considering waking up at 5 in the morning on Wednesday. 
We were having a good time and did not want it to end but we did have to face the responsibilities at some point, right? What made it even more fun was having our friends Logan and Alex come down with us for a couple days. We played, talked, and ate a lot. It was like we were kids again playing marco polo in the pool for a good chunk of time!

We found some sweet noodles at Walmart!! 
Oh the morning of Memorial Day we went for a ride to find the Arizona border and go exploring. It was a warm day but the breeze was feeling nice and it was fun to out to the open and see a part of St. George we had never really been before. We took a few dirt roads and found some pretty cool stuff! 

First we got to the Arizona border and of course I had to take some pictures of us being in two places at once. Then we kept driving down the road and come to this hill of what looked like broken glass to us but after we stopped and got out and really looked at it we realized that it was not glass at all. It was like a rock that was white/clearish and SO COOL! You can't really tell in the pictures but it was shinning so brightly in the sun and there was TONS of it! 

We almost left to go home but we realized there was a pit of it! It was all in the ground and on the walls. It was pretty much like we had just found hidden treasure. It was so cool looking and sparkling in the sun light. Too bad it wasn't diamonds or man would we be rich right now!

Later we realized it wasn't that much of a secret to anyone else that it was there. But to us it was treasure and really cool. I am sure we will head back out there the next time we are in St. George. 
That afternoon we spent more time swimming and relaxing and then we barbecued with family. Which was so YUMMY! I really love a good chicken or steak or corn on the cob cooked on the grill and then you can't forget some watermelon for on the side! It was really a great summer day and weekend that was filled with good people, good food and lots of good old fun! Hope you all had a good day too! 


p.s- tonight we are going to the fair and I am realllllly excited. I love the fair.

Date Night

Andrew and I love our date nights. Getting out of the house. Doing something different and just spending some good old time together with no other worries. It is the best. I love Friday and Saturday and sometimes random days of the week, nights that we get to spend good quality time together. We have done a lot of that lately.

We have gone to a few BYU baseball games which has really been fun and made it feel like full on summer. and we went to the BYU Rugby game for the national championship. That was a.w.e.s.o.m.e. I decided that I really like that sport and I am sad we didn't go to more before the season was over. We won so that was great. Andrew and I sat in general admissions and it was on the field. When they scored we were like 2 yards away from them. It was INTENSE. What a rough game. Making it so crazy to watch!
Another night we went to the batting cages and played mini golf. I had never gone to the batting cages so that was an exciting and nerve wrecking event. Andrew hadn't gone in years and was really excited about it. Once I got in there and hit a few it got exciting and fun! We need to go back more so I can get a little practice though, I am definitely not that great!

We have become big fans of this place called Provo Beach. It has a lot of cool stuff you can do like simulated golf, bowling, croquet, surfing/body boarding, pine wood durby racing, and arcade games. We have only played the arcade games twice but we plan to try a couple more fun things there soon! When we went the first time we played on the basketball game most of the time. It was cheap and we had a ton of fun playing it. This last time we went back and we were pretty sure they jacked up the price on the game so we just played it a couple times and then went and checked how many tickets we had accumulated over the last time and this one. We were really surprised to see we had 906 tickets. (the basketball game also got us A LOT of tickets)

Jokingly I asked the guy how much the stuffed dog was because he was so cute! I assumed he would be 1200 or more tickets, cause they like to kill you like that. The guy surprised us by saying it was 950 tickets! Thats like 2 basketball games! So of course I told Andrew he had to play a few more times and of course he was excited to.

And I got my dog :) we named him Travis and he is adorable. and I now need a real dog so I don't look like a freak petting and calling for my fake dog.

Recently we went and saw Fast & Furious 6, which was awwwwesome btw, and ate sweet tooth fairy treats. I got a cookie and andrew got a cupcake shake which I kept stealing because it was SO good. 

We love hanging out together and spending time doing things we love. It has been fun trying new things together and experiencing it all together. I love it. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
