Oh the melodrama...


This weekend we got to enjoy some time up at my in-law's cabin at Christopher Creek. It was about 20 degrees cooler up there, and so relaxing. Well, sort of. Olivia had a hard time sleeping. She missed a couple naps and had trouble falling asleep and staying asleep at night. So that was not quite so relaxing. But still we enjoyed a trip to the fish hatchery... well 10 minutes of it anyway (who knew they closed at 3:30?). Was more fun than I thought it would be. We also got to see the most hilarious and wonderful melodrama. It is put on by the Christopher Creek Branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Most of the people who live up there are pretty old.. and the people in the melodrama were no exception. I'd say the youngest member of the cast was about 65. The opening act was an 88 year old lady doing a "Minnie Pearl" impersonation. She is the grandmother of 30 something kids, and the great-grandmother of 108! And she sang her little heart out. I hope I'm that fun when I'm 88. I think melodramas are just so fun... and when the actors are all senior citizens it was all the more entertaining. The rest of the time we relaxed with our friends and their kids, and played some games and watched some movies.
However, we took the in-law's van up the cabin, and Aaron's dad came up later with his car. And we took the van home, and Aaron's dad would take his car home, since we were traveling with more people. Well... when we got to Payson (about 30 miles away from Christopher Creek) we realized our house keys were with Aaron's dad! I really didn't want to turn around and go all the way back. So Aaron and Austin broke into our condo in about 5 minutes. Glad to know it was that easy.
