Visit to Utah- Week 2

If it wasn't for missing Daddy I'm not sure we'd ever have come home! We had another fabulous week in SLC! Our first week was actually a bit cold. The day we went to the zoo last week Millie declared, "Utah, you make me cold." But this week it warmed up a lot and the girls jumped on the trampoline with the sprinkler on every day! We also squeezed in a trip to Temple Square, a day in Utah County visiting Tim's family, park play dates, a visit to my brother Jeff's and lots of fun inbetween. 

The kids could have climbed on the steps of the temple for hours! And Kate and Millie loved the mini model temple in the visitor center!

Wednesday we spent the day in Utah county visiting Tim's family. Unfortunately for most of our visit they were out of town. They were actually on a family adult trip that Tim and I weren't able to go on...hence why I was in Utah since Tim was working so much...but anyway...We were so happy they got home before we left. We met Kim and Tim's sister and kids on BYU Campus and checked out the Bean Museum and then I just wanted to walk around campus. It's a special feeling stepping onto that campus. I LOVE IT! And I love taking the kids. 

We of course had to take a picture for Tim in front of his beloved quote outside the Talmage  Building (the math building). Kate couldn't stop talking about when she would come to BYU and I will totally be recreating this picture of Kate in the library atrium in 12 years!


We then headed out to Santaquin to see Tim's brother Nick's family. And Auntie Jess pulled out an epic slip n slide for the kids. 

Loved this picture...all those toys that Kate is laying by...pulled them all of of my Dad's subwoofer...silly Henry!

On our way back to Phoenix we decided to spend the night in Vegas again! For over a year now I have wanted to stop and see this art installation just outside of Vegas. However it's off I-15 south of Vegas...not the way we come through. After at least 3 previous trips through Vegas I finally decided we had the time to go check it out and it did not disappoint. It's called the Seven Magic Mountains. It's these 7 30-foot brightly colored towers made up of large boulders. It was squelching hot when we arrived so we didn't stay long before heading to our friends for the night but fun nonetheless.

We made it home Saturday at 12:30pm. Tim got home from his 28 hour shift about 1:30pm. And our AC broke! What are the odds! More on all that adventure next week!

  1. We sure loved being with you and the Kiddos, Hay! Thank you for making the long drives all by yourself. Glad Kate, Millie, and Henry are such good little travelers. We love you so much and miss you! Very sorry your house air conditioning went out, glad it's back on now!
