If you give my parents a color theme,
they will not only take it and run,
but they will turn it into a marathon.
The orange was pure loveliness,
from the flowers and beverages to the treats and cutlery (not to mention their stars!)
I played peek-a-boo with Eli through the window.
My mom prepared Vietnamese pulled pork sandwiches.
I think I finally finagled a smile from Cohen before I left, but he's got the cutest hard-to-crack poker face.
After we finally got rid of the bride and groom (or is it the other way around?)
We ran down to a fun new fabric/various fun sundries called Harmony.Laura Harmon (and her daughter Rachel of Darlybird) run the joint and it's in an old house in downtown Provo, Utah where we kept calling to each other from different rooms you have to come see this!
We all came out (past closing, sorry about that!) with a bag full of goodies.
Not only do they carry fabrics, yarns, and other delightful crafting supplies,
but they hold classes back in the kitchen portion of the house.
And then, to make everything even sweeter, I ran in to Danielle. I knew I knew her, but couldn't remember how until she said, "Katy?..........Danielle!" and then we squealed and laughed and hugged. It was splendid. So we got together the next morning again when we could have some time to actually chat
It was splendid. So we got together the next morning again when we could have some time to actually chat, along with Sachiko. I wish I could surround myself with these friends that I've never actually met, but I know we'd get along swimmingly, sewing and laughing into the night.
Next I took Sachiko (or rather she was the one driving) to get some of my childhood memories from Startup's. Sadly, they were closed, but I saw the door shut, so I poked my head in and asked if we could buy some candy anyway.
The owner was there, complete with candy making apron, and said we could because he opened the door for a woman who came all the way from Farmington. I pointed to my sister and said She came all the way from Virginia! Then another woman popped in and said she came all the way from Washington to get her chocolate covered cinnamon bears. The owner just laughed at these candy loving women.
I got in some more baby snuggling time,
and some more sister bonding time,and then the vote was Costco almond/chocolate icecream bars. The key, my dad said, as though he was teaching us a life lesson, is to ask for lots and lots of nuts. But to him, that is one of life's lessons.
We wrapped up the evening by going to see The Lower Lights in their rooftop concert series.
We got there plenty early to get front row seats,
AND play games,
AND eat lots of snacks.
Finally the crowds arrived,
the sun went down,
and we danced like it was high school.
Jet was my dancing partner.Thanks mom and dad, for putting on another great weekend of fun events, and to Jacob and Krisanne for the brilliant idea of getting hitched.
'Til next time.
