One of my favorite weeks each year. I’m just going to run through some highlights of the week. So much awesome it’s hard to know where to start and end.
Cubby’s for dinner with kids and their friends. Love, love, love what they did in Provo! I want one of those street signs!
Our daughter really wanted us to come down on Tuesday for the opening ceremony and the night hike but with kids in school that’s hard to break away for the whole week. Thursday we finally hiked the Y as is our tradition and finished with lunch at Chom Burger. Took our entire group and it was like a Flash Mob at the restaurant. They were good sports. If you haven’t had the food there it is so good. The shakes are fantastic. Go see them and let them know Angie sent you. Here is the website http://www.chomburger.com.
Enjoyed a formal dinner at the Gordon B. Hinkley Alumni Building and dessert after at Last Course. Here is the website http://www.lastcourse.com. I enjoyed my Caramel Oreo Cookie Dough Shake. It was a fun night. I like to get dressed up and celebrate.
Temple trip with all the kids to do baptisms at the Provo Temple. A busy day with Fall Break but we got a great deal of work done.
Friday included some business in Provo then at dōTERRA. Enjoyed a hike to the Battle Creek Falls and the beautiful colors. Friday evening was the Alumni Cheer Practice for the Homecoming Game. Afterwards several of us went to Chilis for their virgin margaritas and skillet cookies and ice cream.
The 5K Cougar Run on Saturday was awesome. They had a new course for the run this year. I love running through campus. Got the tee and had the blue pancake breakfast. The weather began to turn by the afternoon. Costa Vida catered dinner for our pregame party. Dressed warm and in layers for the game. Thermals included. Didn’t help.
The game was cold, wet and miserable but we kept our spirits up. Cheered loud. Sang the fight song. Huddled close. WOW what a third quarter. It was enough and sometimes that is all you need.
After the game we ended up at Village Inn having hot chocolate and breakfast to warm up. I still am cold but this week has been Epic. So proud of the football team. Loved being a part of halftime and being on the field. Always a treat.
