For our first and last spring break we flew to Utah for a week. We mostly hung out with family and went out to eat (I'm pretty sure every day except Sunday, we are now really fat). We celebrated my birthday by going out to eat at La Jolla Groves (I was not too impressed, sadly), playing in a toy store, having a small party, and laser tagging. Aaron also suggested we babysit Brooklynn for the day, so we took her birthday shopping with us and my mom. She was pretty entertaining at the Disney store (capitalize store or no?) at the mall. So many princess dresses! We also got to go to the temple, which was great since going to the DC one is a full day trip plus a lot of tolls. Aaron also gave a presentation for the BYU pre-med club about interviewing and did an awesome job.
Aaron and I then took off for St. George to go with his parents to the Grand Canyon. It was beautiful! We did a bunch of hiking and saw some amazing views and I took way too many mediocre pictures. It was wonderful. Also, we met a French couple at the hotel breakfast, and I spoke to them in French for 10 minutes. I made a lot of pretty terrible errors, but it was so fun.
Cue photo evidence of our adventures:
My niece Brooklynn on a stuffed reindeer. It doesn't get any cuter than that (unless you use the "posterize" setting on your new birthday gift camera, right?!)
I haven't seen British candy since 2010! Lovely!
Aaron regaling his audience with gruesome tales of neurosurgeries at my birthday party.
Eating at Guru's- Brooklyn loves Becky. And her hair.
I love laser tag so. so. much. There is zero sarcasm in that sentence. Seriously.
The Graham Canyon! (I begin to abuse the vivid color setting on my camera.)
Aaron had a face-off with a moose/elk.
Attempt at the rule of thirds.
Thank you to our families and friends for all of the fun. I can't even say how great it was to be with everyone.
