Weekend Stuff

Every year I am in charge of planning our anniversary trip. We only had 2 so far but each time Jack has known exactly what we are doing. Which is not how we like to play things here. We're all for surprises. Anyway, this year I was going to make sure it was a surprise no matter what length I had to go to. Unfortunately, after all my hard work I wasn't so lucky. 20 minutes before we were headed out the door Jacks brother Adam called and left a voice mail saying "Hey I hear you guys are coming up to Logan for your anniversary..." I almost dropped my cereal and I burst into tears. (You have no idea how stressful keeping a secret is for me) So that sucked. I have no idea why Jack chose then of all times to listen to his voice mail (he never does) but he did. My surprise was ruined.

Luckily because I am such an amazing trip planner our weekend was a hit even if it wasn't a surprise. We spent the weekend in my college home town, Logan, UT. It was so much fun to be back after so many years. We ate hamburgers at our favorite cafe- Angies. (This alone makes the weekend great because we haven't eaten anything greasy or unhealthy for us in over a week. This dieting thing sucks.) Then we spent the afternoon touring the town. We went to Gossners cheese factory to buy cheap cheese and taste all the samples. We walked around Willow Park Zoo. Of course we went shopping, swimming and even made a stop for Aggie Ice Cream. Jack took me to dinner at the Copper Mill and then we watched House Bunny at the dollar theater. Of course we finished the night off eating pizza and watching South Park in bed. It was amazing.

Sunday we spent the day enjoying nature. We drove up Logan Canyon and walked along a "nature path" up there (sounds exciting eh?) The colors were gorgeous and we couldn't have picked a better weekend, weather wise, to spend time outside. Then we decided to make one last stop at the Willow Park Zoo so we could feed the ducks and play with the monkeys.

It was a perfect weekend.

We ended up staying at the Best Western instead. It was actually really nice. I thought it would be ghetto but we were both impressed.
