quite possibly the best weekend ever








So it went a little something like this... Sunny Saturday morning we round up the friends and hopped on our bikes to get a little Great Harvest breakfast. We then head over to Broulims (local grocery store) for some party they are having. We get a free ice cream cone and enter ourselves into the radio stations 94.3 second shopping spree. There were about 8 of us friends that were there. We waited around till 11 to hear if any of our names were called from the shopping spree drawing. The grocery store was packed as the announcer came on and the first name they read was our friend Justin. We were screaming and jumping SOOOO Excited. It was too good to be true. He raced around the store and grabbed all the goods he could get his hands on while we cheered him on isle to isle. His grand total was over $200. I thought that was great...but then they had one more chance for a winner to do the same spree. And they called our friend Logan!!!! It was insane. We were freaking out and needless to say we were a sight to behold. A bunch of crazy college kids that took the house. Logan filled a shopping cart full and totaled to $176. It was a feast. To top it off our friend Jonathan won one of the door prizes. I wish you could have seen it!
That afternoon we took pleasure in the first beautiful weekend we've had and did a Slip-n-slide showdown. We made our slip-n-slide out of paint drop clothes, covered it with soap and shaving cream and slid away. With the winnings of the earlier shopping spree we were able to have a great BBQ.
At night my parents made a stop in Rexburg on their way to Utah. We got some Thai food with my friends and I had a good time showing them my house and my friends. It was so great to see them.

Good times in college. Love it. I have always wanted to win a shopping spree - even for 90 seconds. And your friend has awesome arms - I need to go to the gym.

We loved getting a taste of the fun life you have created in Rexburg. Too bad the twin wasn't there for us to see in action. I love the homemade slip and slide. Clever!
