Pioneer Day Weekend

Jason and I had a great Pioneer Day Weekend. It started off with an outstanding evening in Deer Valley. We were invited to go with Jason’s parents to a performance by the Utah Symphony of classic Disney Songs. It was so much fun! Oh, how I love Disney. It made me realize how much I really need to watch those old classic movies again…now that I would actually know what was going on!

The Grubers brought a tasty dinner of KFC, watermelon, brownies, and snacks galore! We rented short chairs (yes, they had height limits on the chairs) and Karl was able to find a perfect spot on the grassy hill. I don’t know how he was able to get that sweet spot, but we were able to see the musicians, conductor, singers, and projector perfectly! There were four main singers, and they were all brilliant! I’m so glad….I always hate it when you get those lame-o/less-experienced performers and you can’t help but feel embarrassed or awkward for them. You know what I’m talking about! Luckily, I didn’t have to feel 
embarrassed at all. It was seriously so good!

  Yes, Jason....we're all impressed...

THANKS Grubers!

The next day, Jason got up at the crack of dawn to go fishing with his brother Max (big surprise there). Once he returned, we went and saw Inception…..BEST movie since Avatar! We absolutely loved it! It was one of those movies where your head is hurting by the end because you’re trying to figure it all out. Definitely recommend it! After the movie, we stuck around at the mall for some shopping (I had promised Jason some “half-birthday” presents that he needed to cash-in).

Afterward, we enjoyed a dinner at Kneaders and an awesome Banana Cream Pie Shake at Sammys (so bomb!).

Since our 4th of July was “big firework” free, we wanted to make sure we got to see some for Pioneer Day. We ended up going to the fireworks in Spanish Fork with the Phillips boys and Mandy (Paul’s fiancĂ©).  The fireworks were decent to good (it doesn’t help when you’re peering up through branches in order to see them). Quality fireworks or not, we had a great time hanging out and observing the Spanish Fork folk!
