The day after

Ah July, the most perfectest month in the entire year! It starts off with a bang, brings happiness in the middle, and if you're fortunate to live in Utah, we get to end it with a bang too (Pioneer Day is like another July 4th with similar celebrations just a different cause). Anyway, I could talk about the wonderfulness of this month, but yesterday was by far my favorite.

Yesterday, I got everything I wanted for my birthday. Most importantly, I got to spend the day with my sweetheart, who despite being a bit ill, tried to "suck it up" so that I could enjoy my day. I informed him earlier in the month that all I wanted was a bigger cookie scoop and for him to go on a hike with me. The day wasn't complete without eating at Magleby's (best orange roughy you'll ever eat!) and seeing "Get Smart," which was actually disappointing and somewhat boring with a few mildly humorous parts.

I'll spare details for pictures. Hope you enjoy. These were taken on our hike up to the Timpanogos Caves. I think Hylan regretted suggesting this hike...I don't think the hike I was going to take him on would have been quite so steep. Gotta love feeling those muscles burn!

How fun! Happy Birthday! I'm glad you had a good one. :-) How long did it take you to hike? Next time we are in Utah I plan on taking Ben there since he has never been. (It's been a while for me, so I forgot all the details)

It took us less than an hour to get up. They say plan on 1.5, but it should take about 1. It's definitely worth it!!

Sounds like a super crazy fun day! But I heard that the "cherry on top" of this day was a bouncy flamingo from an amazing friend...
