I’ve been to the cemetery before. I’m not sure why it was a little different this time. Memorial Day always holds a trip to Salt Lake to see my great-grandparents that I don’t really remember. My grandparents laugh at memories, and my mom always tells me that I’m so much like my Grandma and that we would’ve loved each other, and that she always had candy in her house. It was fun to go with my younger cousins and share with them the stories I’ve heard for years, about people I hardly knew. This time everything was more poignant, probably because I’ve gotten more sentimental in the past few years. But I’m really glad I have, and I’m glad I got to go spend some time with family this weekend.
Love them all so much!!
The rest of my Memorial Day weekend included cake for my sister’s birthday that’s coming up TOMORROW (more on that later!), games with my fam bam, seeing cousins and second cousins and great aunts and uncles, an extensive hike at Red Butte Gardens complete with Australian and British accents and a nice-roast for my sister, lunch at the most amazing pizza place in Utah, Nickel City with some of my besties, a meteor shower and all the puns that go along with that, bonfires and s’mores, pool time in the rain, some excellent shopping finds, fishing in Payson which was WAY too much fun, eating said fish, and a ward ultimate frisbee game to round it all out. All in all, a very satisfying weekend.
This is prosciutto a pear with pistachios, basil, and mozzarella cheese. YUM.
Love these cute sisters of mine!
And this is a more accurate depiction of us.
Basically all of summer was wrapped up into four days and I can’t wait to do it again!
How fun!! Thank you for sharing :)http://neatly-packaged.blogspot.com/
