Summer thus far

Summer here in the Beehive State so far has been, well... wintry. May felt like March and so far June has felt like April. We had one really nice week where it got into the high 80's, but the sudden change in weather made most of the snow in the mountains melt which meant major flooding.
Not too far from where I live, Little Cottonwood Creek became a raging river and swept away many people's yards and some people had to evacuate because officials thought their houses might fall in too! Scary! Luckily, no one died... in case you were wondering.

Since the weather has been bipolar to say the least, I try to get outside every time we're blessed with normal summer weather. Laying in the grass just so happens to be one of my favorite things to do in the summer :]

One thing I love most about summer is getting to go visit my Gooma and Goompa down in Mount Pleasant. Small towns are just so fun in the summer! Here I am with the pit bull Roxi looking at some sheep. So cute, I wish we had sheep in Salt Lake. Anyways, Mount Pleasant has a cute little drive in movie theatre that I plan on visiting sometime soon. I can't wait to cross it off my list!

My little sister, Haylee Doll, and I went on a lovely hike up to "The Living Room". It's right above the University of Utah's campus and it's well... a living room! There are chairs, couches, coffee tables and even a TV! All made out of rocks of course. The view is INCREDIBLE! One of the best hikes I have EVER been on!
Here's my little Brody, what a cutie patootie. 

What summer wouldn't be complete without family BBQ's? First one of the year was at my Aunt Sue's house and we got to see my cousin's new puppy Maple, isn't she cute? My dad couldn't put her down. I absolutely love going over to Aunt Sue's house, she is Lebanese and makes the yummiest food! Grape Leaves are my fav!
We even got a double rainbow that night!

These are just a few of the things I've done so far this summer. Lucky for me I have 2 more months of fun and have some super fun things planned, including a trip to Hawaii and DISNEYLAND! Can't wait to share those.
