Birthday Fun!!

Last week Carson and I headed up North for my friend Chelsey's wedding. The day started off rocky when things started going wrong for me at work, resulting in me getting off later than I was planning. Then I get home thinking Carson would be packed and ready to go, but instead he calls me to tell me he is stranded about 20 miles out of town. Seriously!!! He had gone out with his construction class, but hours later everyone was still working and he couldn't get a ride back. So I hurry and unload all my heavy work stuff out of my car and up the flight of stairs into our apt (it was about 4-5 trips), then pack some clothes for the weekend as fast as I can to so I can go pick up my stranded husband from the freeway exit. We were finally on our way, and estimated to arrive before the line at the reception was scheduled to end, but of course we got a little lost on our way to the place, and we barely missed them cutting the cake. We were there for the awesome dance solo that the bride and groom performed. Chelsey was such a beautiful bride, and it was so cool to get to attend the sealing the next day in the Draper Temple

Since our trip was close to my birthday, we decided to splurge and go to a haunted forest on our way home. It was way cool, longer than we expected, and with some new things that I had never seen before like this creepy clown that chased us around with a lawn mower. The scariest part was at the end when you have to get on this slide and go down, it was dark so the slide didn't look very long, but it turned out to be much longer than it looked, and then out of no where sparks start flying at you, and yeah I will admit I screamed.


We also made a trip to Gardner Village to see the witches!!! Carson is such a good sport to go with me even though it was pretty crowded. We had such a fun trip, now some other friends need to get married (Keara... Becca...) so we can do it again real soon.
