In some ways I'm totally excited because I really love this time of year but in other ways I'm bummed. Warm Summer nights, please come back!!
This last weekend was tons of fun though. I always love long weekends...although, I feel like the 'long' part is never long enough. haha Friday after we were all done with school and work, we traveled up Cedar Mountain to stay at our wonderful cabin by Navajo Lake to spend the night. It was so fun. We played games, had a BBQ, and went to bed early (I loved that part).
Steph didn't come up with us on Friday night because she had to work on Saturday morning but she came up on Saturday afternoon and brought Mike and Dan with her. When they got there, we rode 4-wheelers, ate food, and played games until all hours of the night. Mike and Dan went back down on Saturday night but we (including Steph) stayed up one last night. The only bad thing about doing that is that we had to be up by 6am so we could be back down the mountain and Dad could be showered and changed in time for his bishopric morning meetings.
Sunday was a good day though too. We went to church and I got to lead the music in sacrament meeting for Stephanie because she was coughing. Then Dan and I went to a confirmation for Tracy's son, Trevor. He was so cute and excited to be a new member of the church! It was fun. Dan got to see some of his friends from when he lived in Cedar before the mission and we talked to Bryan's parents. It was great! After that Jeremy and Kaela invited us to come to Kaela's family lunch. That was lots of fun too. Their family takes turns every Sunday to have lunch at their house and everyone brings food and just has a good time. What a fun tradition! After dinner Dan and Jeremy had to go to work so I went home and Dan came to my house after he was done with work. It was a good night.
On Monday, we took a little trip over to Parowan for the Labor Day Parade to watch Collette play in the band. She plays the flute in the Cedar High Band and she looked and sounded so great marching! After the parade we headed back up to our cabin to spend the last day of our 'long' weekend. Steph didn't come with us because she was sick so it was just Mom, Dad, Bec, Erin, Collette, and me. We sure missed Steph but it was a fun time! I got much needed rest and one last 4-wheel ride. What a fun weekend!
I also saw the Ball family riding in Larry's police car after the parade was ending. Logan is the little guy in the back seat. He's so cute! We have the same birthday and I've known him since he was way little so he always says hi to me. When he did that 'I love you' sign to me I said, "I love you, Logan!" and he yelled back, "I love you more!" haha it was so cool
