Mom & Dad Weekend

Greg's parents came into town last weekend to spend some time with us. We are so grateful for Greg working at US airways, we get to see our families so much more because of it. While they were here Greg's dad, Kim helped us fix our cars since one was hiccuping and the other caught on fire. :) He is our HERO!
While the guys were fixing the cars Greg's mom, Karen taught me how to make some amazing pizza dough and use my kitchen aid for something besides just mixing cookie dough. We had tons of fun. It motivates me to want to cook more.
My auntie Kathrono :) plans what she is going to cook for the whole month and gets all the non perishables in one big swoop and then each week goes and gets veggies and stuff. I think I'm going to start in October. It is going to be a big step because as of now Greg and I eat Mac and Cheese, microwave soup, cereal, you name anything that only takes two minutes to cook and we probably eat it. So I think its time my poor husband deserved a decent dinner on a regular basic. I always make an excuse that I will do it more often when I'm a stay at home mom, but I don't think that will happen all of sudden :)
Here is our beautiful pizza we made, it was delicious and tasted tons healthier than a normal pizza.

On Saturday we wanted to go hiking so we headed to Payson to go hike fossil springs. We drove the two to three hours to get there and it was RAINING!! I love the rain, but not when you want to go hiking. So we turned back. That is the second time that has happened to Greg and I so I think we will be avoiding Payson for a little while. When we got back into town we didn't want to go home because we had been driving for over four hours and without a destination it just didn't feel good. So Greg's mom really wanted to go to this place called Nordstroms Last Chance, it is where everything goes AFTER Nordstrom Rack it has crazy good deals on designer products. So we plugged in "Last Chance" into the Garmin and headed to the store. Well we ended up here....

Haha we were getting a little skeptical when we were driving in farm land. So all that driving and we finally just ended up going home jumping in the pool and showering for the day :) We decided to google the store this time cause you obviously can't always trust the Garmin. We finally found the store and got there an hour before it closed. It was fun. I found a cute belt for only four bucks. I think the trick though to finding more stuff would be to go early in the morning, I can't wait to go again. To end the night we ate at a great Mexican restaurant across the street.
We decided that every time Greg's parents came into town we would make it a tradition.

Sadly before we knew it they had to leave. Weekends are never long enough. We love you guys!! Hope you come visit again soon.
