Fun Weekend and BBQ:

So... I know this is a little late, but we had a BLAST last weekend... :) So I thought I would share.  I didn't work Friday so Matt and I stayed up late Thursday night and then slept in a little on Friday morning.  Then we got ready and went to get Matt a new phone, which he desperately needed.  It's sweet and it was free, so it doesn't get much better than that. 

Then we went to my parents house and hung out with them.  We went to the Porcupine Grill by the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon for dinner.  We got yummy artichoke dip and I had this delicious Thai pasta and rice - everyone ate some because it was so delicious and enormous.

Then we went to see Despicable Me one of the BEST movies ever.  We all loved it!!  Then we went back to my parents house and went to bed because we were all exhasted.

On Saturday morning Matt and I woke up early and went to a Dr. appt.  It was actually one of the best parts of the weekend. :)  Then we came back to my parents house and ate breakfast on the deck - I love their back yard.  Then we went to Costco and got lots of good food.  Then we went back to my parents house for a bit before meeting up with the other pair of the fearsome foursome.  Jon, Rachel, Matt and I went to dinner at our favorite Thai restaurant - Thai Spice.  After dinner we came home and unpacked.

Then Rachel and Jon came over and we watched Bingham (where Matt went to school - I don't hold it against him ;)) play Alta in football.  During the game we had lots of food and made smoothies which were delicious.  Then we decided to watch Ratatouille... one of the worst decisions of our lives.  I highly do NOT recommend that movie.  Rachel and I fell asleep and Matt woke me up in the middle of the night that night to tell me how mad that movie made him. ha.

On Sunday we went to church and then went up to my parent's house for a back to school BBQ.  The food was amazing - especially the steak and we ate far too much.  Then we all relaxed and played with the little ones for a bit.  Here are some pictures...

 My FAVORITE Person:

Addy the little Cowgirl. :) (I like that she is holding a horse too).

Mikayla - so grown up :)

Playing Hopscotch

I love how addy is just chillin' in one of the hopscotch squares :)


Addy thinks the lid will go on with the chalk sticking out like that. :)

Mikayla and Addy on the Exercise Ball.

Ryan and Katelyn playing basketball

Dad and Derek playing with the chalk.  Someone put the little Cowboy hat on his head - don't worry, this isn't his regular apparel.

Derek's turn with the hat :)

Well, that's the end of our fun weekend, but I have a feeling we have another one coming up just around the corner. :)

Looks like it was a great weekend! Okay, I'm super interested in why you disliked Ratatouille?
