Memorial Day Weekend 2012

We had a fun, jam packed weekend full of family and friends and we LOVED it!

Friday: We went to Matt and Lauren's house and had a delicious dinner, we played the Wii and then played a fun game called "Quelf" which is similar to Cranium but it makes you do weird and awkward things, which is hilarious to watch. (*Que pictures...)
The next morning Lauren and I got up and went to Zumba, we then came home and had homemade delicious pancakes and then decided to go a on a hike. It was windy, rainy and cold but we decided to go anyways. We drove up the beautiful Nebo Loop and found a beautiful hiking trail. It did lightly snow while we were walking but we still had fun. 
 The boys found sticks and the whole time back were hitting rocks into the wild. Overall it was about a 2 mile hike.

We then came back and had Cafe Rio and watched some TV before we left. It was so fun to be able to spend some time with our cousins who live so close. Thanks Matt and Lauren!

Sunday, after church Aaron and I picked up Chuck and headed up to Huntsville, Ut to the "Hansa Haus", which is Hansen House in Dutch (we think). It was SO much fun! We arrived to find G&G, Nat and a friend, Josh and his cute family. We had a delicious dinner and learned some new card games (what is a Hansen get together without card games?) 
 We also played on the "carpet spools" in the living room and had races to see who could walk on them fastest across the room. Aaron and Chuck even attempted to switch which spool they were on with each other. Haha, made for some funny pictures.
Aaron and I were lucky enough to get a the 2 bedroom house and we loved it.
The next morning Aaron and I went on a walk together up the stream and over a bridge. We then had a cinnamon french toast with apple crumb cake syrup...I will definitely be making that again soon! We then...played more card games! So fun! We did a nice flag raising ceremony for Memorial Day, said the pledge and even sang the National Anthem!
 We also played some games out on the lawn such as the "ladder" game which is shown below.
One of the ball/string things went into the river and so Aaron was nice enough to go into the freezing water to retrieve it....he accidently fell in :) 
More Aunts and Uncles came up and it was a party! We had a yummy BBQ and were really sad to leave Monday night! Can't wait for July to spend more time with everyone!
