Raise your glass to the Ya Ya's!!

Last weekend was our biannual girl's weekend. For the first time, held in Salt Lake... which meant I got to go on a plane just like an adult. Steph and I flew together which was awesome, even though she wouldn't hold my hand during take-off. Steph and I are the only ones left in California of the Ya Ya's. I was trying to think how our friendship began, and I think it was our Book Club that cemented our friendship. First book I think the book club read was Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood. There is something very refreshing about being with people who know all your faults, your secrets, and your hopes, and they still love you anyway. I can not describe how much I miss having everyone local. This is potentially our last belly shot, as this may be the last of the petit Ya Ya's to be born. Weird that we were just starting our families, or in my case avoiding starting a family when we all met. And in keeping with tradition, we got a surprise at 1am with this lovely note and a fireworks show put on by Brooke's husband, who is lovingly teaching his sons to "scare mommy" at her girls weekends. This note cracked me up.... because it pretty much is an accurate representation of what takes place at Girl's weekend. Then on to Ross's Company Picnic. It's held at a Ranch, and the kids always have a blast. Here is Nathan with the petting zoo, and that Lamb kept "Yelling at me" according to Nathan.
This was a bouncehouse that had sprinklers and was like a very tricked out slip'n'slide.
And we fed the horses...

And went for Pony Rides. ....
This picture of AK pretty much just summed it all up. Chocolatey Snacks + Animals = FUN
If your wondering about AK's Micheal Jackson Glove, it's covering a bad burn. Poor girl... we've spent many hours at the burn clinic getting it healed up. She actually seems to enjoy wearing a glove, it's just another acessory to her.

And isn't this picture YUMMY! It's all stuff from my garden. My neighbor and I planted "companion gardens" this year. Check out the lone cucumber. If any of you want tomatos or bell peppers, please please come by. I'm fearing we are going to be drowning in them. Off to Girls Camp...
