Saturday night Devin and I went out for Mexican with Cami and Marc and then headed to Cascade Golf course. The boys and fun playing 9 rounds. Cami and I played maybe 2 holes. We had too much fun chatting and cruising in our golf cart. After we finished we went back to their place to meet Tommy the turtle and then ended night with some yummy frozen yogurt. Successful date night!

Last weekend we went up to the Canyons Resort for a work retreat. It was fun hanging out with mom and dad for a couple of days. We did lots of shopping and eating, and enjoyed a gondola ride and swimming.
 Devin and I went home through Parleys and stopped at Temple square and City Creek. All in all it was a great weekend.

 san.fran in a nutshell....
We had an amazing time on our trip to San Fransisco. We did all of the touristy things we could fit in which included lots and lots of walking:) Our first day went drove into the city, which was a new experience all on it's own! We started the day out taking a tour of Alcatraz. Then we walked up to Pier 39 for some lunch. We spent the rest of the day walking around the city. We went to Ghirardelli square, up to China Town, and then took the train out to the Colosseum to see the Oakland A's game. I think that was Devin's favorite part. Day two we did a lot more walking, a ton more eating and then biked up to the Golden Gate Bridge. The next day was Devin's cousins wedding so we spent the day doing the usual wedding routine, sealing, luncheon, then reception. The wedding was beautiful and we were so happy that we got to be there. (Sorry about the mass of pictures, couldn't help myself)

over easter weekend we went down to gunnison to visit gladys. we spent friday night and most of saturday dying and rolling eggs, watching movies, playing in the sun, and helping with house and yard work. it was nice to get away even if it was only one night!

.gunnison dragon.
it's made out of mosaic glass tiles under a bridge. when cars drive by the dragon literally roars!

.rolling eggs.
this is a tradition that the gagons introduced me to. after coloring your eggs you race them down a hill. we found the prettiest, lush green spot sanpete county had to offer!

.daniel had the winning roll.
(and yes, devin brushed the dirt off after and ate it...)
.happy easter.

So it's no secret that Devin and I enjoy a great meal. Love of food is something we have always had in common. As of late there are a couple of restaurants that make my tummy happier than the rest: Goodwood BBQ and Tarahumara. Of coarse Goodwood, who doesn't love that place!! Delicious meat and amazing side dishes...can't go wrong there. We came across Tarahumara because Devin read Born to Run. It talks about the Tarahumara tribe in Mexico. Devin loved the book so of coarse we had to try the restaurant. It is in Midway, so a little bit of a drive, but worth every mile it takes to get there.

What's even better is when you get to share great food with great people. I always love an excuse to eat out and what better excuse is there then getting together with friends. And I have to say, I have been blessed with the BEST friends anyone could ask for and I love every chance we get to spend time together. I consider myself very lucky!

I love when Devin is with his brothers and his inner 13 year old self emerges.
Typical activities for when the Gagon boys get together include: Nerf gun wars, keep away on the stairs, video games, blowing things up with fireworks, shooting their bee bee guns, playing with their remote control cars and the list goes on...

But of coarse it makes me smile every time.

I feel like people usually have a love or hate relationship with Las Vegas.
Most people I have talked to either love.love.love going to Vegas or avoid it like the black plague. I have always been quite fond of it. It is a very nice change of pace from good ole Provo Utah. ....however..... This week I was not loving Vegas so much. Devin had the luxury of going there for work, which left me home...alone! I'm not going to lie I am a scaredy cat. Over the last (almost) 4 years of being married to that kid I have only had to spend the night away from him a few times. I am not ashamed to admit that on those rare occasions I slept at my moms house. Well I decided to be brave this week. I avoided every knock that came to our door and probably double our electricity bill becuase I had everylight on at all times but I did it, and am quiet proud of myself! :)
Working hard......

oh hey.....

I feel I have been treating my blog like an awkward friend from the past. Someone that you have not seen in forever. It has been so long that when you randomly do see this person you avoid making eye contact (like you really didn't see them).When you do happen to engage in coversation it is awkward. You just don't know what to say. So much life has happened that you don't know how to catch up. You feel like you are a different person since the last time you spoke to them and so you don't know how you'll get along any more.

I'm sorry blog I have been avoiding you! The first step is admiting it!

I can't make any promises. I could say I'll be a better blogger...but let's face it, I probably won't. But I'll try!

XOXO ~ Kara
