Momma turns 60 – Deer Valley

For my mom’s birthday, five of her six kids met up in Park City for a partayyy weekend. And to kick it of, a few of us went to the Utah Symphony in Deer Valley. Theme: 70’s and 80’s. Oh yes. 

One of my new favorite memories. For sure.

Snaps I send my sisters.

Chicago. Round three.

One of my favorite traditions with my dad is going to see Chicago in the summer. This was our third year doing it and this time we had Danielle and her dad, Brian join us. And it was just awesome. The venue was so intimate and cool, I kept freaking out at how close these guys were. 

The only sad thing was that my favorite Jason Scheff was not present. It was still so good, obviously, but it was interesting how his stand in just didn’t quite hit it like Jason does. Jason’s voice literally pierces my soul.

But we were still able to have a good time eating some tacos, singing along, and playing with snapchat filters.  HOLD ME NOW.

Like American money.

The Fourth of July just has to be the happiest, most fun holiday of all the holidays. Is it possible to hate the Fourth? I submit not.

This weekend I watched a lot of Office, read and hung out by the pool, and went to McDonald’s THREE TIMES. LIKE AN AMERICAN. Mindy would be so proud. It was the perfect three day weekend.

On the actual Fourth, I slept in, picked up Chris, and went to Kim’s house for some waffles and t shirt making. Then Chris and I picked up Kevin and we played in and by the pool for a few hours. Then we took [my] trip number three to Mcdonald’s and had a little picnic at the park for Kevin to run around. Then we rested back at Chris’s until some friends came over for Chinese food and fireworks.

We dropped off some people to watch the fireworks, then we parked and Hudson, Chris, and I long boarded along Tempe Town Lake to the Mill Ave bridge where we watched the fireworks. It was probably the coolest thing I have ever done and there is no photo documentation. I guess I will just have to remember it in my brain forever and ever and ever.

I love where I live and I love the opportunities and freedoms I’ve been given and I am grateful for a Heavenly Father who knew we would need a land to grow and progress and establish this gospel. GOD BLESS AMERICA.
