Our Memorial Day weekend was pretty eventful. On Saturday we went to Bridal Veil Falls and Sundance with Sara’s parents. Sunday we played some lawn games in my parents backyard including 500 and Bocce. On Monday we had a graduation celebration at a park in Cedar Hills. I took my awesome Spiderman kite which Brooke and Shaylee enjoyed flying. It was a great weekend and a fantastic break from school and work!
As you may or may not remember, one of the items in my Easter basket this year was a Spiderman kite. Kevin and I have been anxiously waiting for a time to use it and that time finally came. Last Saturday there was a little bit of a breeze so we went to the field by the Hospital and flew Spiderman. The kite flew amazingly well for how little wind there was. It wouldn’t hold up under a really strong wind, but it worked very well that night.
I realized it has been quite a while since I posted last. So, here is an update with a few photos. Kevin and I finished up school at the end of April and started again. I actually had finals at UVU and the first day of class at BYU all in the same week which was quite fun. Kevin and I are taking an art history class together and just took our first test. Spring semester is almost halfway over! It definitely moves a lot faster.
April 25 we went on a hike with Connor and my Dad. It wasn’t raining when we started, but once we got to the top of the hike it started to pour. Kevin took his glasses off for the picture, but we are still wearing glasses (which is not fun in the rain) from our lovely viral eye infection. I think we are going to try contacts again soon. But, by the time we got to the car, my pants and shirt were soaked and my hair looked and felt like I just got out of the shower. It was pretty fun though.
A couple days after the hike, Kevin helped my dad plant some trees he bought. Kevin dug large holes (and hit a sprinkler pipe doing the first, they thought the pipe was further back than it was) and then moved the trees into the holes. They were not small trees and one of them took four people to move into place. The picture doesn’t really do the hole or tree justice.
I’m working on my photo project and it’s been really fun. A lot of people give me weird looks, but that’s part of the fun. I posted some of the pictures I have taken lately here.
