This past week was packed full of fun, and even though Jake and I did not do as much as we wanted because of school/work, it is safe to say that we had a fun time.
Last Saturday we went up to Bear Lake to stay with Jake's family at a cabin. We were only able to stay over night, but we had a blast. We got bear lake's famous shakes, played plenty of games, went swimming, and of course got a little sun burnt. We even made up a new car game on the way back that will probably become a family tradition.
A few days later was my birthday, which honestly did not start out too well because I thought that I would not be able to spend time with Jake all day. (Gotta love work schedules sometimes!) A few of my sisters took me out to lunch and I was able to have yummy Island Way's from Costco at work to celebrate my birthday. My mom invited the whole family over to her house for pizza and cake because she did not want me to sit alone on my birthday. When I was walking out the door to head over, all of the sudden Jake was right there walking down the stairs! He made arrangements (which were not very easy) to be able to leave work early and spend time with me on my birthday! I sure do love him for that! The party at my mom's house was fun, and I feel so blessed to be able to have an amazing family and a new amazing family that I have married into!
The next day was Independence day and Jake and I celebrated by going to the Real Salt Lake soccer game. We got free biker caps, got spit on by the guy behind us (which was just funny to joke about), and the game ended with the best firework show that I have ever seen!
I love spending time with Jake and am so grateful for that time that seems so rare to us!
