Joel and Abby were really cute together
All together again
Sadly we had to say goodbye (again) as the Gygi's had prior commitments.
We stuck around though and made the 1.5 mile, 1000 foot climb up to the Timpanogos cave at 1pm in 100 degree heat. Doesn't that sound like fun?
Don't they look like happy campers?
Here are the happy hikers, going up the last 1/4 mile.
I was impressed Abby made it up. She only got the ride for the last 1/4 mile.
This is what your car looks like from 1,000 feet up.
Once we finished our cave experience we decided to head down to Provo to some of our old haunts. As we drove around to some of our old apartments we couldn't believe how run down and small some of the places were. Ahh, love is blind :-D
While the dorms we lived in when we first met were demolished a few months ago, the dorm I lived in my second year and where we spent most of our dating days was still there, so we had a little reunion there for old times sake (16 years later!).
Brad and I used to like this shake shop in Pleasant Grove called "The Purple Turtle", and for Brad it was the "Gold Standard" in shakes. So... we had to go and see if it was as good as he remembered. Brad's favorite and the ultimate shake
So... was it as good?
Have you ever been to the Purple Turtle? If not, next time you may find yourself in Utah, make it a stop on your trip. The shakes are so filling we only ate half and saved the other half for a "milkshake" the next day.
