Labor day = Rest day

I am sooooo glad that today is Labor day. This might be the best holiday ever invented. Somehow, someone knew that all of the teachers would be too exhausted to go without a break after the first full week of school. I am dead, I forgot how tiring it is to teach and set up expectations and routines with a new class. Today I spent the morning shopping with the girls in my family, and then we met up with the boys for lunch at Cafe Rio.

Bob and I came home and he studied, while I read on the couch which later turned into me napping for 2 hours.... GLORIOUS! I'm almost starting to feel like I can go back to work tomorrow.

We had a fabulous weekend! Fridays are always great, knowing the weekend is almost upon you. Bob and I had a free gift certificate to Pier 49 for dinner where we got the extra large BBQ chicken pizza.
We then used our Trafalga passes and played a game of mini golf. I want to go every week so I an work on my putting game.... So the first week I scored in the 60's..... and this week I made it into the 50's. Maybe one day I will be able to play par.

We woke up Saturday and made our way to the Provo temple, and a quick yet expensive run to Costco. (We can't go there too often, we always spend a ton....)

Bob's sister Staci and family decided to drive to Utah for the weekend. We met them at Tucanos for lunch. We stuffed our faces and had a great time talking to the nieces and nephews. And after lunch we went to the BYU football game. I was so happy we started out the season with a win. Bob and I love BYU football.

Sunday morning we started early by going to Music and the Spoken Word. I am embarrassed to say that even though I have lived in Utah my whole entire life, this was my first time going. It was really neat, I loved every second of it.

We got pictures in front of the temple and made our way to sacrament meeting before heading home for lunch.

We spent the rest of the day at Jen and Cory's house. We enjoyed playing games, watching movies, and talking. It was so much fun to see Staci, Nate, and the kiddos. I can't wait for Christmas break to go home to Washington.

Sounds like you had a great weekend. We used our "pass of all passes" this weekend too to go to 7 Peaks and Trafalga. We need to go minigolfing together someday. Glad you got a nice break!
