For those of you who don't know, Derek and I had to be separated after 3 months of marriage for 7 weeks. I came back up to finish my last semester at BYU-Idaho and he was in the middle of his semester at COC in California. He wouldn't be done until June. It was a really hard 7 weeks and I am so grateful that it's over. Having him with me everyday is such a huge blessing in my life. I love him dearly. He takes such good care of me and loves me so much.
Anyways..back to this weekend. We drove down to Utah to visit my family and spend father's day with my daddy. We got down there Friday evening and were greeted with a home cooked meal. Steak. Spinach Salad. Roasted potatoes. Delicious. Saturday we spent the morning getting ready for the boat (pictures to be coming later). We finally left for Utah Lake at 12:30 and didn't get home till around 8:00. Such a fabulous day on the boat. The sun was shining bright and I only got a little sunburned. That's huge for me. Sunday we had a great day at church and later that afternoon had a family feast. Almost all of my mother's family came over to celebrate Father's day with their dad, my grandpa. We had BBQ ribs, apple and walnut salad, rice, homemade rolls, corn on the cob, and homemade ice cream. The food was delicious and it was so nice to see everyone and catch up. I love family and i am so grateful for such a wonderful father. He always believes in me and encourages me to live up to my fullest potential. I love him dearly.
Ok that's all for now. Check out the pictures coming soon!
