What a crazy-fun weekend! The weekend started at about 4 am Friday morning...I'm still not sure how I made it up that early! I headed out the door by 5 to meet up with Luke and Marissa's friend up in Salt Lake and then we continued on up to Rexburg in time to make it to the Rexburg parade at 9! After the Rexy parade, we headed over to the Menan parade and fair-type-thing. I wasn't expecting to see anyone I knew in Menan, but while Ris and I were waiting in line for an hour and a half for our tacos, I ran into one of my good friends from my Drawing 1 class! Abby and I spent soo many hours working on projects together trying to understand perspective, proportion, contour lines, value, texture and everything else taught in a beginning drawing class! I was so glad to get that class done and out of the way!
After Menan, we got all of our things together to watch the fireworks in Idaho Falls, but made a stop at the Snake River and went boating for about an hour! In Idaho Falls, we had AMAZING view...we were maybe 150 feet from where the fireworks were launched! We could all feel our hearts skip a beat when the huge ones went off because we were so close! During the finale, Ris put her sunglasses on because it was soo bright! So fun!
Saturday morning, we had amazing gourmet waffles and smoothies--a great way to start the day! The boys took off to go shooting and Ris and I headed over to see Spencer and Erin's new house! It's always a party when Erin's around! It was fun catching up and laughing our heads off! For dinner, we had an amazing BBQ complete with shiskibobs, grilled pineapple, corn on the cob and baked potatoes!! We headed over to Craigo's after dinner to meet up with Spence and Erin for some dessert! We tried taking a picture of the three of us after, but we were totally unsucessful at getting a normal one! One of us was either laughing or we were all looking different places!
I wish we all lived closer together! It was so nice to get out of Provo for the weekend and spend time with good friends!
