Hightlights From Our Quick Trip to Utah

We just returned from a very quick trip to Utah. Here are the highlights.

 We were graciously hosted for a few days by this lovely lady.

We went to BYU to get some Ice Cream.

We decided to check out the BYU Broadcasting building and snuck into Studio C just to look around. They were having a meeting in there so we couldn't stay long.

 We wandered through the updated Bean Museum.
 And then just walked around campus a bit enjoying the scenery.
 Walking back to our car (okay.... so we may have been purposely hanging out nearby because we heard they had a meeting) we spied some of our favorite people. I am sure they thought we were a little crazy but they were willing to pose for the camera with us anyway.

Most of our week was spent with family up in a large cabin near Heber City.

A very beautiful setting to hang out.

 Play a little vollyball.

 Take a swim.
 Play some games with cousins.

 This cabin had it all.  Foose ball, air hockey, pool, ping pong.

And a whole room full of Lincoln Logs.

 The family played a number of different board games.

 The kids watched movies and played a lot of Mario Kart.

Mostly we just ate a lot of great food and enjoyed time to relax and hang out together.

When we returned from the cabin rather then skipping immediately home we took a day to visit Thanksgiving Point and see the newish Museum of Curiosity. Evidently a lot of other people decided this was the day to visit as well because it was very well attended and so loud!
 The kids had a great time climbing around through the jungle area.
 Played some bubble music
 Made a stop motion movie.
 Got lost and then found again in the Maze.
 Splashed around a bit in the Noah's Ark.
 And just enjoyed the gardens of Thanksgiving point.

The next day we took the long drive home again and back to the real world again.

It was a nice change of pace for a few days but I admit it is wonderful to be home.

I only wish we had had more time to see all the friends we know who call Utah home. There is never enough time to fit in everything and everyone we wanted to see.

OK, Colin is soooo jealous of your Studio C encounter! Sounds like a great trip though. That cabin looked like so much fun! And the view was gorgeous! We would have loved to see you, but I know how hard it is to fit everything and everybody into a short trip. I'm glad you had a good time!
