Logan, Tyler, and Halli also rode the big slide! Don't mind the blurry photo--my phone clearly doesn't take action shots.
Thanks for such a fun night, Annie, Tyler, Halli, and Hayden! Until next year!
The following night, a Saturday, we hung out in Park City with some of our great friends, the Neffs and Bjorklunds. They are the best people to be around! Anytime we hang out with these four there is constant laughing and some of the best storytelling and discussions. Before heading to PC we ate dinner at Pei Wei, which is always delicious. Logan and I were pretty fond of our fortunes as well!For some dumb reason I don't have another picture for the entire night but it consisted of yummy Cold Stone ice cream, card games, and laughing! Good times for sure!
Our last big event of the summer was spent in Midway with our high school friends at one of their family's cabins. I must have had a great time because I didn't take a single picture. Logan and I left a night before everyone else so we could make it back to our ward on Sunday morning so we tried to get a group shot then but it never happened. I've posted plenty of pictures of this group in the past so just imagine us in your mind's eye! We always have such a good time with these friends! Conversation comes easy when many of you have been friends since Kindergarten and the others joined the group in Jr. High or High School. It can sometimes be hard to make new memories rather than just reminisce on our old ones from 10-15+ years ago.
We drove up to Midway on Friday evening and ate dinner at a yummy Mexican restaurant right in town. Everyone seemed to really love what they got and the salsa bar kept us occupied for quite some time. We came back from dinner and played a big game of Scum for awhile before finally going to bed. A lot of the group had signed up for the Dirty Dash on Saturday so they took off earlier in the morning for their race and the spectators (me and Logan included) made our way to Soldier Hollow a little later to see them at the finish line. It looked like they had a great time! Following the Dirty Dash we went back to the cabin for lunch and then hung out in the yard chatting, playing basketball, and throwing the football. The weather was perfect so we loved just relaxing and enjoying the great company! Later in the evening we finally made our way back inside to start dinner and then found ourselves outside again playing one of my favorite games--Church Ball. We played Church Ball (similar to Dodge Ball) nearly every day in the Summer when we were younger on the Andersen's tramp so it was a lot of fun playing again for the first time in years. *Side Note: I woke up SO sore from jumping on and off the tramp so much. Pretty pathetic, I know!* After a yummy BBQ for dinner we all gathered around the campfire for s'mores and stories. I could do that nearly every night and never get sick of it! By this time it was getting late so Logan and I bid farewell to the group and drove back to Salt Lake. Although the weekend was short and went way too fast, we loved it! Thanks for such a great time, everyone!
While it's always sad to say goodbye to the warm weather, I absolutely love Fall! If I had to choose, I would definitely say it's my favorite season. The cooler weather, pretty colors, and of course holidays are so much fun and put such a happy spirit in the air. I got our fall decorations out of storage and can't wait to put them up. I'm trying to hold out for a couple more weeks but it's testing my patience for sure!
So long, Summer!
