Food, Family,and Fun Things to Do in Provo

Sorry for the lack of an update! Here we go friends:

A few Saturdays ago, I got off early from work, so I thought I would surprise Squire with a yummy meal: Rosemary Olive Oil bread to dip in balsamic vinegar and olive oil, bacon wrapped chicken over rice, and steamed asparagus with a hollandaise sauce. Not a huge fan of the sauce, but everything else was amazing. What can I say? I love food!
Also, since we last posted, my cousin Dallas got married to a beautiful girl - Becca. We went to their reception. My mom, dad, Riley, Granny and several of my aunts and uncles came up for the celebration. It was so fun to see everyone! Here is a fuzzy picture (sorry) of them cutting the cake, just seconds before they smashed it in each others' faces. That, my friends, is how you start a marriage (and honeymoon) off right.
I only got a couple pics with my mom. Look how excited she was to see me! . . .
Haha. That's better mom. What else is new: well, in just a few weeks - on August 12th I will be an official BYU graduate. I am excited! I am still 6 pages of a capstone paper, a few class assignments, and a final away, but I am close! After I get those out of the way, this will be all I'll have to worry about:

My whole family is coming up to see me graduate. I can't wait for them to get here. I have been feeling absolutely homesick for Reno, my hometown this Summer. Seeing them helps a lot. So will our week long vacation to Yellowstone camping together. : ) I'm planning a trip up at least by January too, so I am looking forward to that.

Plus, McKenzie will be up at BYU for the Fall. I have been so ecstatic thinking about this as well. I have lots of places I want to show her, and restaurants where she needs to eat. Places like this:
The one and only J-Dawgs.
The "Y". We'll hike to the top.
Tucanos. And you thought chicken hearts were gross! ;)Roasting marshmallows on BYU's Bell tower at night. A Freshman year tradition.

Other things too. Like the secret aquariums at the bottom of the Wistdoe building. The dorky, but very serious "medieval warriors" that battle in Veteran's park on Thursday evenings. Burraston ponds with the rope swings. Tunnel singing on Sunday evenings. The Krishna Festival of Colors - which I have yet to go to, but absolutely must before we leave Provo. Yeah. Fun Provo stuff like that.

Hope all is well in your world. Until we post again!
