Seriously, I don’t know how I’ve been missing out on this my entire life…what a crime!
I’ve never been much of a boater so this trip was full of a lot of “firsts” for me; first time slalom skiing, first time jet skiing, first time surfing, and first time cliff jumping. And I loved it all!! Sun, water, and a fabulous group of people...i couldn't ask for more.
A big thanks goes out to this charming fellow and his family for making the trip possible.
It was a week of bliss.
As if the week couldn’t get any better, let’s add a cherry on top: the Tim McGraw concert.
Initially, if i'm being honest, it was a bit of a sour cherry. Returning a bit late from Lake Powell + Traffic jam + Vehicle smoking and breaking down + Phone dying + Walking 80 miles (slight exaggeration) in the blazing heat to get to the concert + Missing the two opening bands = A sour cherry.
But guess what? I love sour cherries! It was a perfect night. Good ol’ Timmy did not disappoint. In fact, he far exceeded my expectations. It was an awesome concert and well worth the journey beforehand!
A face to describe the evening's events
and a face to describe how we really felt!
And last but not least...
Miguel, aka my older brother Michael Ted, had a birthday this past week.
Though sometimes we are polar opposites he is the best big brother i could ever ask for! We are only 18 months apart so whether he likes it or not he's been right there with me for as long as I can remember. And i wouldn't have it any other way.
Love you Miguel, hope it was a good one!
Whew, the marathon blog post has finally come to a close.
