::home:: coming out of summer hibernation

fantastic weekend! in fact, i don't want it to end:
thursday night - swimming with my dude + snocones
friday - visit to dude's campus for the upcoming years! new student orientation including:
finding his classes, visiting the bookstore to find his books, and getting a student ID card!
lunch at Pastry Pub, a drive up to Cedar Breaks National Monument and Brian Head.
i'd never been to cedar breaks before, so it was a fun day trip.
again, we're kicking ourselves for not spending more summer weekends in the cedar mountains...
the weather was positively cool up at 11,000 feet! (and the sun might be a leetle bit stronger, too).
then, the drive home... and mentally preparing a desert driving playlist
friday night - the county fair, complete with funnel cake and fried doughnuts!
also watched a performance by The Duttons from Branson, MO.
no exaggeration - we were the only people there who didn't have, um, salt and/or pepper colored hair.
saturday - cleaned the house and then enjoyed a lazy day at home.
ran some errands including back-to-school shopping for dude.
home to say hello to the dogs and then to the theater to see Knight and Day
and i won a free movie pass! they did some trivia before the movie, and i just happened to know
that one of the names they tried out for the movie was Wichita!
sunday - out to the desert cliffs before the sun started beating down.
some exploring, wading at the creek, catching crawdads, and made a boat out of grass.
more laziness around the house
and then a rustic pasta dinner with lemon, zucchini, pasta, and garlic.
tonight, some sewing time, and then we'll say good-bye to the weekend.
hope yours was a good one!
ps. we don't really put up too much about our work, but if you want to see one family's story,
go here. start in about 13:30.
and i'm not sure who told them they'd be living with native americans. we don't do that.
