Road Trip - Utah

In case you haven't noticed. We haven't been around for a bit. We have been driving and driving. We are just finishing up our road trip. Our first stop was to Salt Lake City, Utah. We stayed with some friends that we hadn't seen in awhile. And took in some of the sights of Temple Square and the SLC Valley.

Not all these kids are mine. Do you recognize a few faces from here? It is always fun to meet up with friends. They were great tour guides!

This is my Mom's Cousin. She is serving a mission and is working at the Church Office Building. I had never met her before but my Mom wanted me to stop in and see her and tell her "Hi".

So many friends live in Salt Lake we took some time to get together with quite a few.

When we told people that we were headed to Salt Lake they told us we needed to see the This is the Place Heritage Park.
It was worth the visit and the kids had a great time!

There isn't just friends in Salt Lake. We have some family too. My husband's Aunt and many of his cousins live near BYU so we took a trip down to our old Alma Mater with a few of them and walked around. The kids loved the stop at the Cougar Eat for BYU creamery ice cream cones.

Everywhere we went my kids had new friends to play with. Here is another friend that I knew from before I got married.
She now lives in SLC. My kids loved her pool and could have played a lot longer with her kids.
We also went to Provo Canyon with family for a little picnic dinner and some fun in the stream.
My kids can never resist water.
Molly loved all the new faces that were smiling at her. Having cousins is so much fun!

We stopped to get a close up look at Bridal Veil falls too. I hadn't been there in years.
It was a quick trip through Utah and we really appreciated all the great friends and family that let us stay with them and sleep on their floors and keep us fed.
We really had a great time!
But our trip didn't stop there. The 2nd installment of our visit will be in the next post.

Great pictures! Those are all some good looking kids!
Wow, you did so much in the few days you were here. Thanks for including us. We really had a great time hanging out with you. B and I were just talking about how wonderful it is to have friends where the whole family all get along with and enjoy each others' company and have the same values and we just wish you didn't live so far away. :)
