At the beginning of February Aaron and I were able to take a short weekend trip to Utah to visit family and friends. We stayed with Mindy and Tari in Salt Lake the first night we got there (we arrived at midnight) and then spent the next day seeing Mandy's new house in Heber City and meeting Jonas. Aaron and Jonas had a lot of fun.

Mandy really wanted to learn how to make Mindy's infamous salsa so we all got to learn. Man is it good!

Tari and I

On our drive back to Salt Lake. It was snowing!

That night, we were able to meet up with friends in Salt Lake for dinner at Red Robin. It was so great to see Melissa and Justin, as well as their significant others. Michelle also came up from Provo.

We really missed Sheryl :(
After dinner we went down to Pleasant Grove to see Anna, Chris and Kayden. It had been 8 months since we had last seen Chris. We stayed the next 2 nights with them before we had to come home. Don also came up from Provo and we had so much fun eating out, bowling, and just hanging out. We made sure to eat at Cafe Rio and I had a realization. I might like Costa Vida just as much. I'm glad it's only 10 minutes away.
Eating at CPK

Bowling. Mindy and Tari missed us so much they had to join us. We're glad they did.

Hanging out at Chris and Anna's

Kayden is cute as ever and it was so good to see him walking! We slept on a blow up mattress in Kayden's room and when Kayden came in his room Saturday morning he was so confused, and maybe a little scared, at these two strange people who had taken over his space. It took him a little while to warm up to us but on Sunday morning he wasn't at all surprised to see us there and was happy to come hang out on the mattress with us.
We realized while we were there how much we miss Utah. It is such a great place and we hope to be able to visit again soon.

I'm done.

It's official. I will never watch The Bachelor ever again, regardless of whether it was a setup or not. It's lame, and has been a waste of my time. Poor Melissa. You handled it perfectly.

Well, except for tomorrow night's After the Final Rose Part 2, THEN I'll be done.

Boo Molly.

Last year we had a great time snowboarding, but Aaron wasn't sure he wanted to go again after the beating he gave himself that day. We decided to give it another shot, and this time he loved it! Matt, Lyndsey, Trevor, Brad and Jessi also came with us. It was Jessi's first time and Trevor's first time in a long time so Aaron was in good company.
Everyone came up to Roseville Friday night and spent the night in our one bedroom apartment, and then we left for the slopes Saturday morning. It was a short hour and a half drive to Alpine Meadows.
Getting ready for the slopes.

Aaron is a little skeptical


They're doing it!

Lunch time

Since Aaron was doing so well, I went with Matt, Lyndsey and Brad to the summit.

We had a gorgeous view of Lake Tahoe, although I have to admit after most of the day on the bunny hill, this run was a little daunting for me. It just drops off right behind Brad.

Back at the apartment. We were wasted by the end of the day.

We had an awesome day of snowboarding and hope to go again before the end of the season.
