A View Of Our Weekend

Our weekend started out so well. Larry and I actually went on a date and he planned it! We saw Salt Lake Shakespeare's production of Twelfth Night. It was a modern setting so I wasn't sure how it would go, but it was great. We particularly enjoyed Festes, the fool, who had an amazing voice and Malvolio (and in my opinion those two really make or break this play). I whispered to Larry that Malvolio looked like a grown up version of Duckface from Full House (a kid that Stephanie teased) but I was totally surprised when we looked at his bio in the lobby and he was Duckface on Full House. Oh yes, we had a brush with fame. You know you're jealous! Saturday Larry got off of work much earlier than expected so instead of working on our talks for church the next day, we met up with the Randall's and drove down to Payson Canyon. I went camping once there in high school, but I did not remember how beautiful it was. We checked out The Devil's Kitchen which is touted as a mini Bryce Canyon.

We checked out Mount Nebo

The steep cliffs made some of us a bit nervous And then we stopped at Payson Lake. Oh I was dying to stay and camp! We HAVE to go back soon. It was gorgeous. The kids couldn't resist dipping their toes in the water.

And those lead to babies being stripped down to their diapers and diving in

I have to say one of my favorite views with this newlywed couple on their vespa

Our gracious hosts, Jason and Melinda even ended the evening with two batches of homemade ice cream that rocked. Their recipe for cake batter ice cream is posted on their blog.

When you say.."started off so well..." it makes me think that it didn't end well. Waiting for the other shoe to drop...

What a fun weekend! That first picture wasn't duckface, was it? Because I totally saw the picture before I read the post and I thought I like that haircut!

Looks like you guys had fun! I have to tell you - I checked out some Food Network DVDs from the library the other day, and last night I watched Alton Brown's Good Eats. If Larry wasn't a doctor, he could totally be Alton Brown. Something about him was reminding me of Larry the whole time!

I'm glad you had such a good time too!
