Weekend recap.

I can't believe the weekend is over, it basically just flew by!

Friday, Sean helped me chop wood for something I'd be making later in the weekend. Later, he and I went out to dinner and a movie. We saw the Incredible Hulk. For a long time, the theater was pretty empty and there weren't any other females in there. Midway through the trailers, more people came in and I wasn't the only woman in the theater anymore. The movie was a lot more interesting than I thought it would be. I liked the little tie-in at the end, but I won't say what with so that people can be surprised when they see it.

Saturday, I went boating with my dad, Lisa, and Steph. We went to Utah Lake for the first time. We each had a turn on the wakeboard and then we decided to go anchor off for lunch. We ended up on the west side of the lake and came across a wakeboarding competition. It was pretty cool to watch all the stuff those people could do. Sean joined up with us after lunch. I wasn't fully impressed with Utah Lake, we all agree that there was something about the waves and the wind made it extremely hard to wakeboard. It was so exhausting to be on the wakeboard on that lake. Also, the marina is a complete unorganized mess. I'm not sure how I felt about it. I'll have to give it another try before I form an opinion. Here is a picture I took of my dad before my camera batteries died.

After boating, Sean and I met up with Mike and Traci. We were hanging out in Mike's backyard with his dad, picking peas off the plant and eating them. Mike and Sean convinced me to try doing back a back handspring on the tramp. I tried, but I couldn't do it anymore. I haven't tried for about four years, and now I've got a mental block about it. After that, we went to get some ice cream on the way to South Jordan's Country Fest to watch fireworks.

After the fireworks, Traci and I wanted to ride some of the carnival rides. Traci and I convinced Mike to go with us on the Inverter, but Sean opted out, which was fine with me because that way Sean could hold my purse and take this picture of us. After that, all four of us went on this ride that was similar to the Screamer at Lagoon. At first, we were spinning forwards, and it was mildly fun. Then they switched directions so that we were spinning backwards. Not a good idea. Sean and I got so sick. It was the first time that I had ever thought that I might not make it to the end of the ride without throwing up. I thought for sure that I was gonna be that person that barfs on the ride and it flies everywhere. Luckily I made it off the ride and ended up not getting sick at all, although the motion sickness didn't go away for quite sometime. Next, Traci wanted to win a goldfish, but sadly left empty handed. When we went back to Mike's, his parents were watching some crazy killer alligator movie. It was nuts! I was so tired from the previous week that I ended up falling asleep and missing the end. What a shame.

Sunday, I had to get everything ready for cheer camp. I ran errands and made preparations all day long until it was time to head up to my mom's for Sunday dinner. My cousin Melody was there, along with my brothers' girlfriends. I decided to make a spirit stick for camp so I finished it up at my mom's. Here she is holding the stick that I made.

After dinner we had my mom's delicious enchilada's, chatted and played Wackee 6. My sister and I left around 9:30 pm. About a mile after we got on the freeway, we ran into a traffic jam that was at a dead stop. After a few phone calls, we discovered that the freeway was down to one lane in Kaysville for construction. It took 45 minutes to get from point A to point B.

By the time we got to point B, they were opening it back up to three lanes. It took a total of an hour and forty-five minutes to get home. It was a crappy end to my weekend, but this week should be fun with cheer camp and all.

That picture of your dad is so cool because the wake in the water mirrors the mountains behind him. It sounds like a REALLY fun weekend.

I really love the spirit stick! Just don't drop it, you do remember the spirit stick curse. I can totally see you upside down on that ride. I saw that in person and I can't believe you went on it. You and Sean are so silly!! (Silly Wabbits)

Hi, I was wondering how did you make that spirit stick?
