This week at work was the big unveiling of the Vivint Home Automation Kiosk we built. We had about 50 people visiting to check out the finished product. We even had a little spread to welcome them. Turns out people from Vivint only like grapes and crackers…which left more cheese and cake for us.
We were all really pleased at how the kiosk turned out and the people at Vivint were just as excited!
Later that night I met my friends at Red Rock for dinner – our friend Alison was in town from New York and we wanted to spend as much time with her as possible before it was time for her to return home. The five of us talked late into the night, passing around baby Jase, until the restaurant officially closed up.
I adore them. We won’t be all together again until March and I am already looking forward to it, obviously.
This week I also got to dine out with two more friends, Chelsea and Melinda, in Ogden at Bistro 258. We also stayed until the restaurant started closing up [I think the common denominator in this equation is ME…I just can’t help but be a chatter box, I guess]. I had so much fun, and we even managed to capture this one photo of all of us together before we started getting heckled by a homeless man.
Friday my whole family drove up to Zach’s family cabin up in Causey for the weekend. It was perfect weather and we even saw the first signs of fall making its debut with some brightly colored yellow leaves. We played games, stayed up late, went on 4-wheeling adventures, watched sports, and went on a few wild animal chases.
My heart explodes when I watch Zach interact with little Camron. He’s going to be such a fantastic father one day. He got Camron all geared up with his own 4-wheeler to ride. Zach used to ride this beauty when he was 8 years old. Looks like it still kinda fits…
Cam was in high heaven and rode that little machine until it couldn’t go any further.
Even my grandmother ventured out for an off-road adventure…
I had such a great time with my family and am so grateful for the Hendersons for sharing their gorgeous home in the mountains with us. My family didn’t want to leave.
Zach and I drove down to Ogden on Sunday so that I could sing in Mark and Jeanene’s sacrament meeting. Like always, I feel so accomplished and relieved when it is over. We drove back home and I was greeted with the sweetest gift from a friend/neighbor for helping her with some baby shower invitations: amazing body butter and some delicious and healthy chocolate muffins. Thank you Dena! It made my whole day.
What made Zach’s day, you might ask? Being sent home from his mother’s house with a whole chocolate cake all to himself. Zach rarely eats sweets, but he can dominate a massive piece of Jeanene’s chocolate cake like it’s nothing. Besides, he did it while watching pre-season football…so….
There is just something about being in the mountains that can totally rejuvenate you. Zach and I are ready and excited for this week, and looking forward to Labor Day weekend!
