Speaking of backyards, Nate's grandma threw a big family reunion at her house. We played games, watched an outdoor movie, and ate a lot of food. On Saturday we all went on a hike to Stewart Falls. I guess all of the excitement was a little overwhelming because Brielle decided to take a nap on Nate's shoulders.
That night we went to Stadium of Fire ... well kinda. Nate and I just waited until we could hear Brad Paisley and then he grabbed his longboard and I hopped on my bike. We were right outside the gates in 3 minutes flat. I think I actually enjoyed laying on the grass with Nate more than being inside the stadium. (Of course, if they could get Miley to come back I would probably cough up the cash.) The fireworks show was a little random this year-- to the tunes of Louis Armstrong, Neal Diamond, and Kati Perry. Nate and I decided that no firework show compares to DisneyLand's show. After the fireworks were finished, we got out of there in record time. As we rode past each car we could hear them saying "That's such a good idea." haha only like six years in Provo to figure that one out!
The next day was Nate's mom's birthday. I made this cake. My mom had seen the idea on a blog, but I think I did particularly well with the execution.
I thought it was pretty awesome, but Nate wasn't very impressed. So he went and made friends with some neighbors who had some amazing fireworks. Seriously. They were legit. We took video, but that's Nate's department. Maybe if you bug him I'll have something to post in the next day or two. ;)
