Memorial Day Weekend

It was a jammed packed weekend, but it was so nice to see family and friends and eat at our favorite places. We arrived in Provo on friday afternoon and spent the rest of the day relaxing.

On Saturday Aaron and i woke up early so he could go play a round of golf and i headed over to Magleby's with my brother for some amazing French toast.
I didn't want to ask anyone to take our picture so we attempted one ourselves... it was semi successful.Later on Saturday we had the Baby shower that my Mother-in-law threw for me.
These ladies stayed after the shower and we spent some much needed time catching up, it was fabulous.My sister-in-law Rachel had Senior ball later that night so i got to see her off. It reminded me of the good old days of high school dances. It was a masquerade ball (thus the masks). Don't they look awesome? That was a much cooler theme than we ever had in high school (which i think was something about Paris Nights... lame)On Sunday we celebrated my 23rd birthday. My parents sent me a package full of birthday goods and they had these little gems stored inside. My favorite candy plus a personal message, that pretty much equals an awesome gift.The cakeMy first bite of dessert in a year! Aaron's face says it all.Matt and I being awesome, as per usual.On monday we dined on our favorite cuisine of cafe rio. I miss it already.Saying goodbye. (i hate when people say things like this, but i have to say it so i apologize in advance. I have no idea what is going on in this picture but i look HUGE. I don't know if its my sweater or the angle but i promise i don't look like that normally... and if i do look like that normally pretend that i don't)We left Provo on monday afternoon and made it home to San Jose at about 3:30am, which was definitely not the smartest decision we ever made.

It was a fantastic weekend.

I didn't think you looked huge in any picture but Matt certainly looks like a skeleton. What is it about Provo that makes him shrink? (except for Freshman year when he ballooned into the next zip code). It looks like you had fun. Thanks for the shout out about the M&M's. I'm glad they made the trip across the country without melting. Could you believe how small the bag was? I won't tell you what they cost but suffice it to say, it was A LOT!!!! But, you were so worth it. See you in 3!
