I had a small moment of spontaneity this weekend, I went to Utah on a whim :)
It was a 3-day weekend for me so I got tickets Monday to fly up to SLC Airport Saturday morning, arriving at 10:30 a.m.
Betsy was super sweet and agreed last minute to pick me up and drive me to Grandma & Grandpa Sumner's in Mapleton.
Such a fun day and WOW they got snow!!! I was blown away by how much snow they got in one day. They said close to 12 inches!
Meg was making snow angels.
So amazing! A few days ago they said they had temperatures in the mid 70's and a nice sun out. And the day before I come is this. . .
Sunday Morning I got ready for church in my most winter appropriate outfit I could come up with. This is what I wore to Grandma Banks Funeral last time I needed a dress for Utah. I wanted a picture of me next to the church building covered in snow & ICICLES!!!'
Close up of the ICICLES ~ I am from Mesa, Arizona, this is a pretty big deal :)
And the view! It was so pretty, the mountains were covered in snow and clouds. I was admittedly very cold, but it was just so beautiful. I LOVE Utah!
My cousin Sydney made yummy cookies for us. They were delicious. I was so happy to see Mike & his family, we had a great visit Sunday late in the evening. Mike monopolized Josh and talked to him almost the whole time.
The morning I left I finally asked to get pictures with Grandma and Grandpa. Josh took them for me, after 2 pictures Grandma got up and said, Okay, we're done. . .
Josh & I went to Black Diamond for a tour, it was pretty cool actually. The bought out Gregory which is the brand of all my packs & I LOVE them! Josh & I both enjoyed it.
We went to lunch with his sister Kate & her husband Kit @ Crown Burger then she was kind enough to take me along to the airport.
Josh thought I was flying Southwest with him & was bummed that I was flying Delta so we couldn't wait at the gates together. But it worked out perfectly. We went through security together, Josh took a little longer than me, but then again I know who I am dating. . .
Anyway, I walk with his to his gate & we just sit together till he had to board, kissed good-bye and I watched him walk on through to his plane and I turned and walked to my terminal & by the time I went to the restroom & got to my gate I was able to call my Mom that I got there fine they announced they were boarding. Perfect :)
What an amazing weekend! So grateful to see TONS of family, so many people made a special trip to see me and it was such a blessing.
Betsy & her family, Sharon, Susan & Gary came with Tara Saturday afternoon. Vicki & Greg Saturday evening. Brooke & her mom Carol stayed with me at Grandma & Grandpa's which was fun. Emily & Sean came their kids Sunday for dinner (which I made & everyone said was really good. Chicken Adobo is amazing) and Josh was able to come in time for dinner.
Mike, Lisa & all their kids came right as Emily & her kids were leaving, LOVE IT!!!
I was very grateful grandma & grandpa let me stay with them, they even had Josh stay Sunday night so he didn't have to drive back to his sister's in Lehi that night & come right back to pick me up Monday Morning.
I had so much fun, very grateful was wonderful memories!!
