One Last Bit of Fun

Here's the lowdown on the last part of our drive back to Las Vegas.
We had a delicious dinner and homemade ice cream with Steve and Jody when we stopped at their house in Salt Lake. We had just a few hours with them and although the time went quickly, it was a really great visit.

Jansen insisted I take a picture of this fireplace Steve is building, and I'm glad I did. On one of our family hikes a few months ago we collected some rocks and gave them to Steve. He used some of them as part of the fireplace.

From Salt Lake we headed down to Orem to spend a couple hours with my family. My grandparents rolled up in this car I hadn't seen before. I wish I had a better picture. The best part was the shag carpet inside. 

I love when I catch one of these kinds of moments.

And this kind too.

Ah, the magic of jump roping in the culdesac. These little moments mean so much to me.

We slept at my mom's and packed up in the morning. We had one more fun thing planned: a little meet up with the Scotts at BYU. How it happened that we were both in Utah and had a free morning I don't know, but I was thrilled.

It ended up being the perfect place to walk, talk, and reminisce.

Future Cougars maybe?

I didn't even go to BYU, but I still have a lot of memories of that campus.

Ice cream all around...

A lot has changed even in the few years we've been away from Provo.

And just in case this place isn't around much longer, we took a picture of where Nate was living when we were dating. He was in the basement apartment. 

And that's it. 5+ hours later we were back to our home and the suffocating heat! :)

It's always fun to see pictures of Jansen. It's kind of like "Where's Waldo" only it's "What's the expression" or(pose) going to be. Love that the kids always look so happy.

Um, Just so you know BYU would have been funner if I was there. I would have even sung the cougar fight song. So don't go saying what a great time you had until you remember how much BETTER it could have been.

Okay, maybe that is me just saying I wish I could have been there.

I can't believe you were in Provo and didn't call me. Can't believe it.
