As usual my weekend in Washington was fantastic! I love spending time with Jacob and his family.

On Thursday, I got to Washington kind of late, but Jacob did take me for a McDonald's ice cream cone when he picked me up from the airport =] He's the best!

On Friday I slept in which was amazing. Then Jacob made me waffles and we went to meet Haley so I could hang out with her while he was coaching. We picked out a SUPER cute outfit for Adeline at the Rack that I love! After Jacob got done with practice we went to the mall to get my glasses fixed, and went out to dinner, and then got home in time to watch Say Yes to the Dress. I love that show, and I love Jacob even more for watching it with me! He even likes it a little.

The outfit we picked out for Adeline...so cute!

On Saturday, Jacob and I went into Seattle to the music museum. We had the best time ever in the Vocal room trying out the voice machine. It was hilarious! Then we went to this park with a crazy waterfall. I think it might be a famous park...and Jacob said something about a funeral(s?) being held there. I promise I was listening, I just forgot!

Saturday night Jacob had a football game, so I went to dinner with his mom. After dinner we went shoe shopping and to see Fame. There was a pair of heels I almost bought, and looking back now I definitely should have gotten them! Oh well! I had a lot of fun doing some "girl stuff" in Washington. I love spending time with Jacob, but it was a nice change. =]

On Sunday, Jacob and I went to church and then back over to Haley's where we all took the kids to a playground. I haven't been to one of those in forever! It was so much fun though. Haley and I tried to relive our playground days by flipping on the bars....I wouldn't recommend trying that. We were both sore and bruised the next day!

Racing Flynn down the slide. I shouldn't have picked the one with all the bumps...

I think Jacob may have outgrown the monkey bars.

As usual, I did not want to leave Washington! But, on the bright side Jacob is coming to Flagstaff in 1 week and 3 days! I can't wait!

This weekend in Utah was everything I could have asked for!

When you are in the middle of that 8 hour drive from Flagstaff to Salt Lake, it feels like it is never going to end! But when I finally got to Utah I was so happy I decided to come! It was such an amazing trip! We got into town pretty late on Thursday night, but as soon as I woke up Friday things started to get exciting. We checked out the Pioneer Museum, where they have a two headed lamb, went to Temple Square and did some tours and played ridiculous board games. It was really fun getting the chance to meet up with one of my missionaries, Elder Van Dyke, and hang out in Utah.

It was a major bummer to come back to Flagstaff, but now that I'm here there are a lot of things to look forward to! I start work today which is way exciting, and I get to go to Washington on Thursday!! I can't wait to see Jacob! It is so crazy, he leaves for boot camp in exactly ONE MONTH from today! Wow, time flies. Not only that, but tomorrow Jacob and I have been together for six whole months!
