Weekend Wrap-Up

Another weekend has come and gone again! We had a great one as usual. Friday was low key, Kyle got home later than normal so I cooked dinner and we just lounged around.

Saturday it was a beautiful day so we headed off to the Wyler Aerial Tramway. This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. The tramway takes you up about 2,000ft from the platform to the top of Ranger Peak which is approximately 5400ft up from El Paso. The views were stunning!

 This is what we rode in

Us!

 Heading back down

We did a little shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond then headed off to dinner at a local italian/pizza place called "Crust". It was amazing! Some of the best fried calamari I have ever had. We also indulged in this dessert:

Yes it's bubbling! It was a decadent chocolate cake filled with chocolate fudge. It was amazing.

Sunday was a little bit more low key. We went to Super Target to do our grocery shopping and I bought this dress for the upcoming Brigade Change of Command:


It looks much better on. I fell in love with it a few weeks ago and finally bought it. I'm so glad I did.

My sister and I also got our plans finalized for our day trip to Disneyland next month, yay!! I am so looking forward to some quality time with her.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  19. Hi Jen,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog to say "Hello."

    I thought I had you on my bloglist...I do now.

    It looks like you both had great fun!

    One good thing about my trip to see my father, it was a precious time with my husband - a real growing experience.

    Hugs,
    Hope
