Weekend in Wyoming

Well this weekend has been a crazy one! my roommates and I decided to make a fun weekend trip and visit Wyoming! My roommate Amanda's family lives up here and her house just barely got remodeled. we were so excited to check it out and couldn't wait to spend the three day weekend with her family! Rachael (my other roommate) and I were excited to go because we haven't really been to Wyoming. Rachael is from Boise Idaho and usually keeps to her own side of the state :). well we started our fun adventure after school on Friday and we thought it wouldn't take too much time. little did me and Rachael know it was going to turn into an all night thing! we both crashed in the back seat for a couple of hours while Amanda and her boyfriend Todd sat in the front and did their own thing.
We stopped in Rexburg Idaho and took a look at a friends appartment. It was so fun to be back there because that was the place where I made all my summer memories at EFY! and if you have read my extended blog about my boyfriend Steven, you would know thats the place where we met! so i was really glad we got to take a peak.
A couple of weeks ago I visited my family for a day or so and my mom said I needed to take some ORANGES back up to utah state... well I accidentally took the entire box and was stuck with about 25 oranges! so we decided to take some on the trip so we can eat them all before they go bad! So we kept ourselves entertained with eating them all the way up.
We finally made it to Alta (Amandas hometown) by like 6! when we got to her house we were amazed at how beautiful it is! ill have to post some pictures because it really is an amazing house! but we met her family and they are all so cute. we were so glad to be at a home where we got to eat great dinner! and her mom is a great cook.
well saturday we decided to go to JACKSON and check out all there is to do there. we got some great OLD TIME PHOTOS. we had so much fun dressing up in the saloon girl costumes and we all felt a little bit like hookers but it was a great time. that took up most of our time and by the time we got done we only had a couple of hours to spend there. we went shopping through some cute shops and got some great Haagen-dazs! then we decided to make a little memories of our great Jackson trip so we took some pictures in front of the famous big buffalo! and of course we had to take some with the big antler arch! all in all we had a great time playing around the city! the drive there and back was pretty long but so beautiful! we saw many hitchhikers wanting a ride back up the mountian because they loved to ski down it. we got to see the teton mountains, which I learned came from an indian word that means big breasted woman haha. when we got back we played some guitar hero WORLD TOUR and I actually didnt like it as much as our rock band. so good job santa for picking that one out for us! haha
now its sunday and we just got back from church. it was so funny to see how small the ward was and how people dress here! it was a great meeting though. ill have to post what happens with the rest of our weekend in Wyoming! we may take a crack at some homework, or work out in Amanda's family gym haha who knows! keep posted to see what happens next in the exciting life of college kids! ha
