My weekend was AMAZING. USU had Fall Break on Friday. We were supposed to go to our Friday classes on Thursday, and as luck would have it, I don't have classes on Friday so I got both days off! My mom had been planning a trip to Zion's since the kiddos had UEA the same days and I decided to join them. We missed Lex, but we had a good time. I'm so glad I could go; it was sooo nice to get away from the stresses and pressures of school!
Here are some pictures. Most are stolen from my mother, I'm not a photographer.
|Left - Mom had to get a picture by the entrance sign. Right - Getting ready to hike the Narrows. Yeah.. I wimped out after ten minutes. In my defense, the water was FREEZING and my feet were dying. But my mom and Jare toughed it out for almost 2 hrs.|
|Top- yeah, I hiked up that mountain (to Observation Point - an 8 mile hike round trip!) Bottom - Temple of Sinawava trail.|
|Just us siblings bein ourselves. Bottom left- this AWESOME slot canyon we hiked through. We loved shouting and clapping to hear the echo. And I sneezed. The echo was fab.|
|Top - us being adventurers; Bottom- At the canyon overlook trail.|
|These two were taken with the iPhone. Left - me: "Breanna, look!" her: "Look at what...? The apple? I don't get it!"|
Right- Jare bein himself... and me.
And, of course, what would a Fall weekend be without some BYU football? I got to go to Provo with my dad to watch the Cougs CREAM the Bengals. Let's be honest, we all knew it was inevitable, but it's been a while since I've been to an almost (if only they hadn't gotten that one field goal) shut-out. It was a blast, but SO hot. I swear it felt like summer. I was sweating buckets, my dad and I both got sunburned, and it was quite the adventure. There was also this cute lil girl sitting behind us who really wanted to sit on my lap after I told her that her BYU cheerleader outfit was cute. We were BFF's.

All in all, I'd say my weekend was pretty perfect. If only it could have lasted a little longer....
But, alas. Time to get back to real life.
