Pictures from Utah

































Pictures as promised. Not in any particular order. Just some highlights from our time in Utah. I had my root canal done...at least the first part. I hurt and have been in bed ever since. Feeling a little bit better. With being out of town, then out of comission, I've fallen way behind on blog reading. I hope to catch up soon. First I have to prepare for my neice's baby shower this weekend.
Here is a list of places we saw...
  • Temple square...in the day and at night..gorgeous!
  • Nick and Corilynn's wedding and reception...loved it!
  • Trolley square...Mark remembered it being bigger
  • Wanted to go to crossroads mall, but it was GONE!
  • Thanksgiving point...beautiful there! Walked a lot, shared a yummy banana split, bought an ornament for the tree. Mark took several pictures of my hiney there. I spared us all the pain of seeing those.
  • Deseret book store...so many cool things
  • Several places out to eat...our favorite was Cafe' Rio...ate there twice!
  • Heather D Whites house (pictures to come on a later post)
  • Mark's favorite cousin Jeff's house who just adopted a beautiful baby girl.
  • Mark's grandma's nursing home and her church...She is a special woman. Miss her so much!
  • Kanosh (Mark's hometown) loved seeing his old home and farmland. Oh how I love farmland and farming equipment.
  • Historic Cove Fort...so neat!
  • Loved seeing the colorful trees everywhere we went. Seasons are a good thing!

Your pictures made me so "homesick" for Utah. We lived there for 6 years before moving here to FL. I loved Trolley Square. We used to go to Crossroads Mall and I was sorry to hear that it was gone. Lehi Mills is a great place to shop for cool Xmas gifts. How cool that you got to meet Heather D. White. I read her blog all the time. How cool. Thanks for sharing your pictures. THey brought back many happy memories.

OH....MY...GOSH!!! Mark is from Kanosh????? LOL K, my grandma grew up in Kanosh and her brother still owns the house. Plus my a couple of mom's cousins live there too!! And you were at Heather's house too?? I can't believe neither of you told me about this!! LOL I would have driven out to see you that day too!! I love that you took so many pictures of what I think of as everday things - Trax, Trolley Square, Lehi Roller Mills. Oh, and Cafe Rio?? My favorite!!! I think I need to eat there tomorrow. LOL So sorry about the root canal. I had to have 2 done shortly before I got married and remember them being miserable!! I hope you feel better soon!! (((HUGS)))
