Here comes the sun

The sun has finally started to make an appearance around here. It seems we have skipped spring and we're headed straight for summer, but I'm not going to complain. Bring on the sun!
On Friday after Rog got off work we went up to Sandy for a much-needed Pugh hangout.
Corby and I drove up to meet Rog at his work and then we drove up to Sandy from there. We stopped at Krispy Kreme for National Donut day on our way to pick up Rog. I didn't think they would, but they gave Corby a free donut too. Corby was nice enough to share his donut with his dad.
We had dinner at Hires and then went to Wheeler Farm. Corby loved looking at all the animals and walking around.
He found the perfect stick and he was good to go!
They had everything you would find at a farm including some authentic farm equipment.
We gave Corby a bath and then played a quick game of For Sale before we had to head back home. It was a quick visit, but it was sure good to see the Pughs!
On Saturday Rog gave our cars the deluxe treatment. They both got oil changes, their tires rotated, car washes, and vacuumed out! Corby helped a little, but mostly I had to keep him out of the way which wasn't fun because he just wanted to be out in the garage with dad!
We wanted to go on a hike to enjoy the nice weather. We decided to do a short, easy hike to Grotto Falls in Payson Canyon. Because of all the rain and snow we got in May, the stream was a lot more like a river.
We took 2 pictures at the falls. This one where Corby doesn't really look all that happy and another one where Corby looks happy, but Rog's eyes are closed. {I really need to learn how to use Photoshop, so I can fix things like that. Does anyone have any tips for learning Photoshop on your own? I have the program. I just don't know what to do with it!}
So here's some proof that Corby did in fact have a good time.
When we got home we grilled up some delicious Bacon-Wrapped Teriyaki Chicken Skewers. Next time I'm going to make some extra teriyaki sauce to serve on the rice and Rog says we have to cook them in the oven because they made a huge mess on his grill. But they really were spectacular.
We had a little picnic out in our front yard.
We were supposed to have Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie for dessert, but it did not turn out at all. We're talking epic failure here people. I was so looking forward to it because Rachel has said it is so good on multiple occasions. I don't know what happened because I used real butter and everything, but it was a huge, gooey, didn't-set-up-at-all mess! So if you're reading this and you think everything I make in the kitchen is a success... here's your proof that I'm definitely human!
We had a great weekend enjoying some warm sunny weather for a change! Now it just needs to warm up a little bit more, so we can go enjoy our Pass of all Passes at Seven Peaks!
