memorial weekend

Over memorial weekend Richie and I had a great time doing so many things. I don't know how the weekend is already over. It flew by so fast. Over the long break, we loved: 
  • hitting up the outlets in P.C.
  • going 4-wheeling in Midway 
  • wandering around Cascade Springs 
  • visiting Chad who just got home from a mission 
  • visiting graves 
  • having the first campfire of the summer up at my cabin 
  • making tin foil dinners and s'mores
  • seeing "Night at the Museum II" 
  • visiting grandparents
  • going out for sushi
I can't believe June is almost here. I am so excited for summer and hopefully it won't fly by as fast as this last weekend did (even though I'll be in school). I am still so excited for the little weekend trips, the days at the pool, campfires, boating... I could go on and on. I am loving the warmer weather!

I LOVE her!

I was so lucky to have such great roomies.

She is my partner in crime.

We really are twins.

We are and always will be three peas in a pod.
I hope you know how much I love you and am so thankful four our friendship. You are so amazing. Thanks for always being there!

This last Thursday Richie and I headed to St. George to stay with the Bennions and also take a quick day trip Vegas to see a family that he taught during his last weeks in India. They came to the U.S. to visit some family for about a month. They are such a sweet family and so incredibly generous and giving. It was such a great experience. I had heard so much about them and was so excited to finally meet them. Richie raves about Shanti's (the mom) cooking, and while we were at dinner she offered to teach me how to make Chicken Biryani and a few other Indian dishes sometime. I can't wait!

They took us to a really nice Indian restaurant that was so delicious. I had a lot of fun trying new things, and surprisingly I loved everything I ate. 

We were able to walk the strip for a little bit before we met up with Shanti's family. I wish we would have taken more pictures, but this is the only one on the strip. 
My dad was down in St. George on Friday for a golf tournament and he was able to get Richie into the tournament Friday morning. I was the designated golf cart driver.

Happy Mothers Day

I don't know how I got so lucky to have such an amazing Mom who truly is my best friend. I don't know what I would do without her especially living in a houseful of boys. She is such a great example and I hope one day I can be like her. Happy Mothers Day Mom! I love you
