Ice Castles

Yesterday Kahili and I kinda celebrated Valentine's Day early because Monday we both have class until about 7pm.

In the morning, we went with Tyler and Alana Yates to get pedicures. Yes, all of us got pedicures, including Kahili and Tyler. haha. Heres the thing, Alana wanted to get a pedicure and wanted Tyler to do it with her. He refused. I was over so Alana invited me to go and we asked Ty, "If Kahili goes, will you?" Tyler still refused. Long story short, we went to the nail salon and the boys ended up having a great time getting their feet massaged and cleaned up! :)

To start the night off, we went to dinner with the Higas. The plan was to go to La Jolla Groves in The Riverwoods but when we got there, we found out that there was about a 2 hour wait. Instead, we walked down to Malawi's Pizza which is owned by the same people as La Jolla Groves. Well, apparently everyone in Provo was celebrating Valentine's Day early so that place was packed too (It didn't help that the BYU basketball game had also just finished). Fortunately, I saw my assistant coach Shawn and his wife Farrah finishing up their meal. Perfect timing! We were able to take their table and got our food shortly after. I got a BBQ chicken pizza with pineapple and Kahili got the Meat Lasagna. Tyler got a yummy Garlic and Artichoke pizza and Aimoku went with the traditional Pepperoni.

I think we all enjoyed our meals and were happy that we could be a part of a good cause (Malawi's uses the slogan "Pizza with a purpose" and donates the cost of a meal for an orphan in the southeast African nation of Malawi every time it rings up your order). After dinner, we met up with the Nields' and Yates' and started our mini van adventure up to the Midway Ice Castles. Let me just say, if you are in Utah and you haven't been to see these yet, GO! They are absolutely amazing and we had so much fun walking around and looking at them.

We ended our evening at Denny's with some hot chocolate and dessert. It was a fun night and we were happy to spend it with close friends.
