so much time and so little to do.. strike that.. REVERSE

Well this weekend was a real blast. So many things to do and visitors. It left me ready to face the end of this semester.

It started Thursday afternoon.. here is a picture of me at the airport.. WRITING A PAPER. I am a devoted student, and Sara Salmon was flying in from Georgia, and so i brought my laptop with me, wrote the whole way there, and edited once we got to the airport.. it was nice to have it done so i could hang out with Sara. Kaiti was beside me working on her Psychology paper as well... its weird what university will make you do. So.. Sara flew in.. and we went to Macoroni grill.. it was good but our waitress was weird and when we asked her about what we should order, she pretty much said nothing was good. Then i had to go to work... which put a damper on things, but on Friday we all went and worked out and then hung out.. met up with Sara's dad and sister and then went and hung out at Salmons for a while. Saturday morning we had the opportunity to go to conference. We had AWESOME seats.. and Mark took a bunch of pictures for us there.. which i will have to get from him. Saturday night i got to babysit for Sonia ( my cousin) and it was so fun to see her, sing some kareoke and all that and see the kids. Then i babysat and it was a blast, i played some incredibles. And it was nice to be around a younger crowd for a while. Then Matt Lowry called me up, and he was in town so i met up with my girls and we all headed out to the hot springs. It was good to see Matt.

Sunday I had the chance to go to conference again for the afternoon session. Above is a picture of Sara and I on the way there.
Here is a picture of me and my girls that i went to conference with... we sat on the balcony and it was like where everyone from Alberta had tickets for.. so i saw lots of people from home. (and i went into the weekend being sad cause i had no family coming.. it turned out to be a sweet weekend. )

We got a bunch of pictures of the crazy signs on saturday.. but we had to get a few more on sunday... that guy's sign says " i have nothing better to do than satnd on the street corner" and the i love mormons lady was singing hymns really loud. The best were some of the signs people had to get tickets.. one said " War in heaven Veteran.. please donate tickets" hahah.. good times. Renee Comfort had texted me earlier and let me know that she would be in town and wanted to hang out.. so we met up with her and she came back to provo with us and stayed a couple of nights.. she came to class with me on monday. It was so fun to be with some familiar people from home that i love.

All in all a good weekend.. and i will be heading home in about 22 days.. But who's counting?

Thanx again for taking great care of the kids. Sounds like you found the hot springs and had a good time. Just a little FYI - when I was a Ricks, I pretty much hated it until my last month. April seemed like it flew by and it was time to go home. I knew I wasn't going back, but when it was time to go I just bawled all the way home. I realized that I could've made that year so much more enjoyable, and maybe I would've gone back for another year . . .who knows, but take it from me . . . don't count the days. Honestly, home isn't really what you think it is, especially after you move away!!! (it is nice to see your family though!)
