So remember this LIST?
(I won't be offended if you don't. I know it's been a while)
Well this weekend,
my WHoLe (immediate) FaMiLY
went down to visit G.MA and G.PA
at their timeshare in
(will someone please remind me why I ever moved away from there?)
Do I remember much of the drive down?
I slept through most of it.
We did stop at PaNDa in CeDaR CiTy though.
Potstickers are highly recommended.
(especially when you get Teriyaki sauce to dip 'em in)
TaYLoR didn't wear shoes.
This is the LoVeLy LaRGe place we stayed at.
|Canyon Villas at Coral Ridge|
Taylor made sure to unpack
the PAIR of SHORTS the wasn't wearing,
the second we got there.
(He had to stake his claim on a bed)
So boys got the bedroom, girls got the couch.
(which I somehow ended up sleeping on by myself both nights. Oh well!)
Figure that one out haha.
We'd be crazy if we hadn't gone to the pool that night.
Or the next night.
So naturally we went both nights :)
Taylor thought it would be best,
since it was only our family at the pool,
to swim in his underwear..
My dad and I decided that probably wasn't the first time its happened.
The next morning was when our
ANGELS LANDING ADVENTURE
OUR PLAN: GET TO THE TOP!!
We started by parking in SPRiNGDaLe. We thought that by doing that we could save some money and just take the shuttle in. No car, no fee right? WRONG! If you take the shuttle in you still have to pay the same price to get in. Our first clue should have been the fact that only two other people were on the shuttle. So do yourself a favor when you go. Just drive your car right on into the visitors center. Save on some travel time :)
Once we got to the visitors center, we jumped on another shuttle that takes you to different points in the park. At first I was sitting by Kaesi. But then I decided that I would go sit by Tanner, leaving Kaesi with a wide open seat next to her. So of course when this chick sat down by her we snapped a picture haha.
Also on this shuttle, there were
They were headed to the same place we were.
Did I just start talking to them on the shuttle?
No WaY JoSe.
Until they couldn't figure out where on the map we were.
Then I kindly said
"We started up at the other end."
and pointed to the front end of the map.
One of them answered with an
and then continued to try and figure out the same thing again.
Thats when I realized they weren't trying to figure out where we were,
but where to get off.
And then I felt like a fool.
END OF STORY.
After what seemed like a good long awkward time,
we reached our stop.
The hike was on!
Kaesi, and Taylor decided that the best way to the top was at warp speeds.
We reached the top in an hour.
(on average it takes about 2)
TaNNer and DaD were able to make it most of the way,
but not quite to the TiP ToP.
Maybe next time :)
We hung out up there for a good long while.
Ate some TeDDy GRaHMS
FeD some CHiPMuNKS with our NeW FRieNDS.
(Remember those three guys from the bus? HaHa)
and even ran into my friend CaMeRoN from my DiXie STaTe DaYS.
(Last time I tried hiking this thing I ran into a girl I knew from Orem too. So weird!)
Then it was back down the chains.
Kaesi and Taylor ran the whole way,
Lucky for me,
before they took off,
we ran into Cameron and his friends again.
So i hiked down with them and caught up on old times.
For those of you who haven't done that hike,
I'm not going to say it's easy,
cause it's not.
BUT IT IS SO WORTH IT!!
Would I recommend it?
