Last weekend of Summer

This was the last weekend of our 'summer vacation' spent with Karrissa, Joe and the girls visiting. They came during Joe's 'time off' from Dental School and we spent a week in Seattle, then time since being shared with Joe's family in northern Utah.

We went to the Timpanogos High School football game Friday night. Cousin Michael was playing Wide Receiver, and Alysha's dance team did a number during half-time.
I really enjoy the nice fall evenings outside with the crowd at the High School. The mountains made a beautiful backdrop to the night out.I'm looking forward to many more High School and BYU Football games this fall! Saturday we spent the morning getting errands and the like completed, then I took the kids to the movie Julie & Julia. (Grandma was nice enough to watch the grand-daughters so we could go - I'm going to have to take Jill to the movie next week!) I really enjoyed the movie a lot. I enjoyed the story-line of Julia Child, and wished they went more into the rest of her life. Meryl Streep again did a fantastic job! Amy Adams made a much better 'Princess' than whiny New Yorker...

Now I just have to wait for Ryan to make us the Beouf Bourguingnon
dish they mentioned a couple of times in the movie...

After the movie, we went home to hand-made custom little pizza's cooked on the BBQ. All freshly prepared ingredients, and home-made pizza dough. Though not quite the 'wood-fired' flavor, cooked this way on the BBQ they turned out way, way good! Thanks to all who helped in the process!

I'm glad that you are having a great weekend with your family. The pictures of the game, etc with the mountains are wonderful. Sorry we missed out. We did our duty and attended Larry Garrett's daughter Kelsie wedding reception in Ogden.

Those pizzas look amazing. Amazing, I tell you.

Please let's make those the next time I'm in Utah. Pretty please with a cherry on top!

Looks as if the game, food and movie were all successes. The photos look great. I also enjoy sitting at the games and looking at the mountains. They are quite impressive.

I agree with Laura. Those pizzas looked yoummy!
