Fun vacation over :(

Here I am, all alone at 11 am.  That means that my family is gone.  Everyone came to Utah to get Katy from the airport--which was total surprise for her.  They spent the week here (except poor Dad, he had to go home on Monday) and left at the crack of dawn this morning.  We had so much fun!  It was great to see Katy again and to hang out with my whole family.  I would be way sad that they're gone, but I'll see them for our family reunion is just a couple of weeks. 

Some highlights:

  • Bajio nearly every day
  • Veteran's Memorial Pool (I'm only slightly sunburned)
  • 3 movies: Terminator Salvation, 17 Again, and Star Trek--Katy had to catch up!
  • Tai-Pan (wholesale home decor warehouse...SO FUN)
  • Zupas twice (I finally found something I love there--the Honey Bacon sandwich, hold the tomatoes)
  • A great Father's Day barbecue
  • Downeast Outfitters (got cute shirt for Kyle and found great curtains for Mom)
  • Kangaroo Zoo (Lucy didn't get tired until she'd been there for 2 hours!)
  • Making a sequel to Lulu Kong--this time, she's a werewolf
  • Eating at The Pie
  • Getting a pedicure with Mom
  • Park City outlet mall
  • Teaching Lucy how to water a lawn--thanks for your hose and grass, Council Bluffs!
  • Rice King!
  • Watching Lucy play with Boomer, my aunt Diana's Boxer
  • The presents Katy brought us from her travels

Playing with Lucy=the most fun part

Kyle and I also got our new iMac!  I'm blogging from it right now.  I LOVE it.  It's definitely going to take some time to mentally switch from PC to Mac, but I think it is so fun.  Now I have a completely Mac family.  Now we just have to name it.

I took hardly any pictures of our fun week.  Hopefully Christy and Mom did better!

Let's have fun tonight! We're young and alive! We only live once! The world is happening, and we're missing it!

We're planning on an iMac in the coming months as well. They are just so beautiful and functional. And if you're a student you can get a free iPod touch through September!

so fun to run into you on one of your movie adventures-- have I mentioned lately that I really enjoy how you describe things? I trust your opinion on books, movies-- just life in general...which I can't say about most people. Hope you're liking the Guernsey book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm in the middle of The Time Traveler's Wife-- can't wait for that movie!
