Memorial Day Weekend

We came down to Moab for the weekend. I thought it would nice and sunny here, but it has been pretty stormy since we came down. And I bet everyone else is really upset it stormed all weekend, oh well, I LOVE the Moab rain. It is just so pretty.
On Friday when we came down, my dad was needing help with tearing out the tree in the front yard :(. That was my favorite tree growing up. But they didn't get that tree to budge, at all. We went to one of my favorite places to eat in Moab, it is called Zax, yummy!!!!
On Saturday, it was back to work for my dad and Garth on the tree, still not budging. It is going to take a lot to get it out of the ground.
We had a wedding to go to in Castle Valley. Kemrey Wells and Zane Taylor were getting married. And of course it was raining, so we were all worried that she was going to be all stressed, because it was an outdoor wedding. We were getting ready to leave, and this was the only wedding that my dad has been looking forward to going to all year, but he ended up getting called out to work, because there was massive flooding south of town the road needed to be cleared; that's his job. My mom and I felt so bad that he couldn't make it. To get to the wedding we had to travel on the River Road to Castle Vally. For those that don't know this, I HATE the river road. It scares me. Of course it was raining; the only cool thing on the river road was the waterfalls coming off the rocks from the rain. When we were getting to scary parts on the road, I was trying to not panic so I wouldn't scare my mom, but she could feel my tension, and so could Garth.
We got to the house where the wedding was. And it was lightly raining. We saw Zane and talked to him for a bit, and he showed us his sweet looking Sugar Bowl ring, that thing is huge!!!! It was cool to see it!
The wedding started and when Kemrey came out, the sun came out and it stopped raining and a double rainbow came out just right over Castle Rock in the background of the wedding. It was such an awesome wedding. One of the best ones that I've been to.
When we were on our way out to Castle Valley, we were sitting at the light and a truck went by that Garth recognized as Paul and Mariko's truck. So of course, I didn't have my phone with me. But when we got back from Castle Valley, I called up Mariko and we went and met with her and Paul at Denny's. What a small world!!
Today Garth and I went for a ride south of town where the floods happened, it was pretty cool to see where it was. Next to the highway you can tell where the water came through the desert and over the road, there was a lot of rain for this being a desert. It has been a fun weekend. I still do get kinda homesick. But it has been a great weekend rain or shine.

Garth Graduated!!!

I'm so proud of Garth for graduating. I has been a long year an a half in Logan. I'm so glad that he is done with school. Even though it was really rainy yesterday, it was nice. We had our families up for the weekend. It was nice to have them here. And hard for them to go. We've been up in Soda for a week now. But now it is final, no more school :).
I'm glad that Garth graduated. I'm so proud of him.
