Weekend Update: French Friends

We had a lovely time with Regis and Vriginie!  The first night they came they helped us move (yes they came a day early to help us move!  How sweet are they?).  So we treated them to our favorite sushi place and headed for ice cream after.
We took them up Farmington Canyon and we put up a new climbing route, Pockets Full of Treasures because it has a lot of animal feces, and climbed two routes up there.  The picture above is our friend Oliver drilling a hole to put the bolt in.
The canyon colors were gorgeous!  Regis climbed very well and Virginie enjoyed the sights.  During the weekend we also took them kayaking on the Great Salt Lake.  We went to a friend's cabin and ate pizza, played games, & got in the hot tub.  We ate Sunday dinner with Chase's family and played funny games afterwards.  It was a very natural weekend for us, but for them, I hope it was interesting and fun.  We loved their company.  They are such down to earth friendly people.  Hopefully this is not the last time our paths cross.
