You know there's something wrong when I have to tell the refs how the game of basketball is played. They obviously caught on to the fact that I had a superior knowledge of the game and asked me questions the whole time. Are you serious come on?!!!! Probably about 3/4 of the time they called the ball in the wrong direction after it was knocked out. Being the good honest BYU student I am, I would inform them that I was the last one to touch the ball. Actually, I would not have corrected them but the *itch that I was guarding would complain and through a temper tantrum, but it's ok because I knocked her down lots of times. Anyways, there were several instances throughout the game that I told them it was 2 shots not 1 at the free throw line or which way each team was going... Oh goodness intramurals are so frustrating.
Mike and his wife Debbie came up (or I guess down) to visit me this weekend. They got here saturday afternoon. Being the superior cook that I am, I had delicious tacos waiting to eat. Afterwards, we went on a little hike in Pleasant Grove. It was up one of the valleys in the mountains. At first, we started on the wrong trail. It was terrible. It was basically straight up and after the first few steps my calves were already burning like crazy! After we had already hiked up a good ways we found out that we were on the wrong stinkin trail! So we went and found the actual trail, but it was covered with ice and snow. I kept on slipping and slidding all over the place. At least it kept Michael entertained. The waterfalls at the top were really pretty. On the way down, I slipped and actually just slid on my butt for a good distance because I was tired of falling. After our hike we went to Sam Hawk and enjoyed delicious Korean food. For some reason Michael ordered this gross octupus rice stuff that was super spicy. YUCK! Never again. We then scurried off to the cougarettes dance concert. It was really amazing. The choreography was sooooo good.
On friday I left for home. Around 11, I stopped in Boise for something to drink. Everyone around me in line was loading up on beer for the night. For some reason the person behind me set their beer on the counter and left. When it was my turn, I set my chocolate milk down and the cashier asked if the 5 cases of 24 packs were mine. No. They were not. But I'm flattered. Around 12 I reached Oregon and I hit a really bad storm. I had very low visability. It was a blizzard. There were even two snow plows in front of me, but you couldn't tell that they had done anything. Nevertheless, I arrived home safe and sound at 3. The next morning I woke up at 6 to go feed the animals. I got to bottle feed the lambs. They are so cute! Although, they are very vicious when it comes to feeding time. The rest of the day I just hung out with my family. We went and saw the movie push. I really enjoyed it. On Sunday, I went to church with my family and there was no one there! There were only like 100 people. I have more people in my classes. Everyone was really surprised to see me and in a sort of jokingly kind of way asked if I got kicked out of BYU, but not everyone was joking about it. Also, that day Will and I walked down by the river. It was so nice and peaceful. I miss good ol burbank and its down to earth people. On monday, I made the long trek home. These are some pictures that I took right by the washington/oregon border.
I had a lot of fun this weekend. My family was really good to me. We watched lots of movies, played lots of games, and ate a LOT of food.
