This past weekend, we went up to our family’s cabin to have a weekend full of fun and snow. It was quite fun and there was significantly more snow than in the Utah and Salt Lake counties. There were some fun times, some not so fun times, and some very irksome circumstances, but we all had a great and fantastic time just being a family. This week has also been a pretty great week as far as school and extra activities went. Head inside for the story.
Well, the weekend started out great because I got to take a wonderful girl out on a date to go see The Secret World of Arrietty, a Studio Ghibli movie that I touched on in an earlier post last week. The movie was very good, and I enjoyed most all of it. I found that the ending was a little strange, but it fit the story well. It was great date, and I hope that she had fun with me as I did with her.
After the date, I returned to my dorm room here at BYU to spend the night before I went to meet the rest of my family so that we could head up to the cabin. My roommate, other friend, and I proceeded to play Super Smash Bros. Brawl for a few hours that night. We finally unlocked everything and had a blast doing so. The next morning, I proceeded to pack up the things that I knew I would need, along with my laptop and some old Nintendo 64 games that we could play at the cabin. I promptly left for home.
Upon arrival at home, I helped the family do some chores to get ready for our trip. I did some packing, cleaning, and more packing as I usually do before we go to the cabin. There were a few arguments, but they were sorted out very quickly. We were finally ready and headed out for the cabin.
When we got there, we realized that it was decently snowy and very cozy. However, we had no water and were realizing that quickly. I played Minecraft with my little siblings and cousins, and they really enjoyed it. We also went sledding, snowmobiling, hiking, running, and loads of other things. The only downside to the trip was when my aunt and uncle accidentally crashed one of our snowmobiles. They’re fine, but the snowmobile is beyond repair. The frame was completely bent and unable to be fixed or even replaced. It was a tragic moment, but it made us realize what fun we can find ourselves in any circumstance.
When we went home the next day, we just had a lovely Sunday afternoon to just relax and enjoy each other. The next day, we got to head up to my grandma’s house to have one last activity with the whole family. We had a gigantic waffle bar and played awesome board games. It was a great weekend.
