DHS Graduation and California

Jonny and I went home this weekend for his sister Kirstin's graduation. It was a surprise for his whole family so that was fun. It was a really good graduation, Kirstin sang so that was fun. We left Thursday evening and so we got in at about 5 am so that was tiring and it was annoying because there was tons of construction everywhere. So most of our trip looked like the picture below, orange cones lining the freeway.I had a surprise when I got home. Karleigh and my mom had redone my room without telling me. (Taryn this pictures are for you! Sorry they aren't the best but you get the idea.) I love it, I think it looks great. I was also surprised at how dark little Tokyo had gotten, I thought she was Boston!On Friday before the graduation Kars, Mom and I got pedicures. Always fun. I also got to have lunch with Darcey at Dos, so that was fun especially since I couldn't stay for her graduation party.

The graduation was nice, and it was cool outside so that was nice. I think my high school graduation was well into the 90s.After graduation I kinda just went to bed because I was exhausted.
Saturday was a nice relaxing day went to lunch Jonny and Cale. Took a nap. Went to a play put on by the Young Men and Young Women in out home ward. It was a parody on the story of Esther from the Bible. It was a musical and all the songs were from other musicals but they changed the words to fit the story. I actually liked it a lot. Then I went to UP, again, with Jonny's family and then went home and watched Fired Up with my family.
I had a little stowaway.
We headed back to Utah around 1ish. Sadly we left all of our cats with Jonny's parents so he can find a place to live and then we will bring them back. We made the trip back in good time which was nice. At one point I was not happy not only were we leaving California behind but the sun was behind us and a big storm cloud was in front of us. And it didn't even give us any cool lightening. That was pretty much my weekend. I loved being home and being with my family. The trip was too short but I had to get back for work.

1. I am so jealous and wish I had been there, even though it was such a short trip.
2. The room looks great! Can't wait to see it in person and I'm glad you were surprised and liked it.
3. I'm bitter you got In-N-Out and Dos.
4. I can't believe the Corolla is still going so strong...go Toyota.
5. Sad the cats stayed there, but it was definitely for the best so Jonny can find a place to live.
6. Can't wait to see you a month from tomorrow!!!!

Oh yeah, forgot to say, mom, you owe me a pedicure in July! And...
Holly is hot!

Holly, it was great to have you home, even for a short whirlwind visit. We look forward to seeing you in July. Maybe we can do the pedicures again with Taryn although I told Daddy it was a once a year event. Love you.

Weinerschnitzel! Your room looks so cute! I'm glad you had a great time in California. You look stunning in your photos. I hope we both end up being in Davis my last weekend before I enter the MTC! Actually, we should still hang out while we're both in Utah this summer!
