Trip Update

Well, we had a great time in Utah! We got to see Summer, Shayla and Thomas. Sorry to anyone who was there that we didn't get to see, we were pretty busy. I was excited to get to eat at all my old favorite places that we are sadly missing here. One was the Smoke House barbecue joint that makes the best garlic knots around! Another was Kneaders Bakery that has awesome cream of broccoli soup and really good sandwiches.

We got to help celebrate Summer's 25th (!) birthday, which was a ton of fun. We all went out to Chili's and had some great food, followed by (of course!) some great Molten Lava chocolate cake. Yumm-O!

Eli did great on the trip, only complaining a few times. Thank goodness he's getting better at keeping himself busy with books, crayons, and toys.

Although, at this point, he was like, "Mom, no photos!!"

We listened to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on CD while we drove. I just love all of the books in that series! It was fun to get to re-experience this one, knowing what was going to happen in the next one. Plus, it helped take our mind off of all the driving we had to do. That's a long trip!

We also got to go surprise Tom at his new job at the Creamery. He showed off his scooping skills.
Eli wasn't so sure about the sample at first, but he came around quickly once he tasted it. Maybe it was the rubber gloves that spooked him. :)

Overall we had a great time, but I'm glad to be back home. I miss Utah sometimes and it was great to get back there just for a little while. Now it's time for Summer and Shayla to come out here and visit us! :)
