A Weekend with Cali

A weekend with Cali is always a good thing.

She hasn't been gone an hour yet and we already miss her.  Tessa just came into my office and said - "this weekend went too fast".  It did go too fast.  Cali was only home for 36 hours and we tried to enjoy every minute of it and soak up as much "Cali girl" as we could!
Cali drove home from Provo with friends from BYU -I for the wedding of one of their good friends - a member of "The Crew".  Cali found a ride to Boise on the ride board at BYU.  She didn't tell us this until she got home but the gal she got a ride with is from Russia and still awaiting all of her papers and thus she doesn't have a driver's license.  She has a car though.  The gal was performing in Boise.  Cali drove all the way to Boise.

Cali  met up with her friends in Boise and they spent the night at one of their friend's homes.  They drove the rest of the way to Portland on Friday arriving in the afternoon.

Cali wanted chinese food for dinner (she says there are no good chinese places in Provo? Is that true you Provoites??)  After that we came home and watched a movie but Cali fell asleep so she had to rewatch the ending - Letters from Juliet which was cute but a little sappy at the end!

Saturday morning Cali headed to the temple to be there when the bride and groom came out and for pictures. Her friends Kat and Brittany were there too.

 The bride and groom.  The bride is 5'2" and the groom is 6'7".  Megan is going to develop some strong neck muscles!

   The Crew (minus 3)  Kat - Megan - Brittany - Cali

 We met Cali at the mall after she was done at the Temple for a little girl time.  Cali needed some new makeup and we picked up some fun accessories at Forever Love.  The girls found some cute knee socks to wear with their boots and a few other things of course!

Tessa, Cali and I headed out to the wedding reception at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Course.  After a few calls trying to figure out where we were and how to get there we found it. It was a nice reception.

We then went over to Ether, one of our favorite little shoe stores to get Cali an early birthday present.  She decided she really liked Tessa's gray oxford shoes and so we got her a pair too.  Happy Birthday Cali.  We picked up a pizza from Escape from NY Pizza and went home. 

Jim had been busy painting the house all day - taking advantage of our beautiful weather.  It's looking great (except for the little bit of dry rot he discovered in one place - the joys of living in the NW) 

Even though it is a little early, Cali wanted to carve pumpkins (separate post coming on this) so we did that and I made a couple of batches of treats for Cali to take back to the boys!

Cali left this morning.  She is driving back to Provo with the brother of the groom so we invited him to come for breakfast (waffles) this morning before they headed out.

We miss you Cali!!
