This weekend was our last weekend in Utah before our huge summer trip, and it was a hot one! Each day was over 90 degrees. On Saturday we said goodbye to Ben as he left to Washington DC, he will be missed very much.
Friday night E and I headed up to Deer Valley for a Symphony. I gave E tickets to this symphony and picnic for our anniversary on July 9th. The drive was beautiful and easy, and parking was a snap. E and I found a place on the lawn easily, and laid out our blankets and sat down and enjoyed cheese, fruit, peas, bread, crackers and wine as the Utah Symphony warmed up. Soon the sun started to fall behind a nearby mountain, and the show started.
We climbed under the blankets and watched a fantastic classical symphony while sipping wine, watching the sky turn dark, eating strawberries, and snuggling. The music was fantastic, we listened to Respighi’s “Fountains” and “Pines” in the perfect setting. All in all it was a great night.
And yesterday E and I joined E's family at Raging Waters. Our local water park that has slides, a wave pool, a lazy river, and so on. It was a fantastic day to enjoy the water part because it was so very hot. I guess everyone else in Salt Lake felt the same way, because it was very crowded.
So now it is Monday, I am back to work, and counting down the hours before our trip abroad. Only a few more days!
