Its been about two weeks since we got back from our trip to Utah, and I already miss it. Aaron had only been to Utah once for the Missionary Training Center, and so we kind of acted like tourists and visited the sites. Our flight came in early Wednesday morning, so we tried to sleep in, which was an epic failure. I didn’t hardly sleep past 6:30 the whole trip. We spent the day resting, and just hanging out with my family. Wednesday night we went to dinner with my cousin, Briana, her husband, Tyler, and my other cousin Camille at Cafe Rio. I have been craving pork barbacoa ever since I moved to Alabama, so it was great to actually have good Mexican food.
Thursday, we went to Salt Lake and did the whole Temple Square business. This included the Church History Museum, Market Street Grill (they mostly had sea food and fish, which Aaron loved), the Conference Center, the Salt Lake Temple, and both Visitors’ Centers.
Next we went to Clark Planetarium, which sadly we found the show rather boring because we both fell asleep. For dinner, we went to Fuddruckers and hung out with some of Aaron’s from Alabama, Kellee and Elizabeth.
Friday morning was spent going to yard sales, and walking along Main Street in Spanish Fork to the sidewalk sales. We spent time with my sister, Devere, which was super fun.
For lunch, we went to the Malt Shop in Provo with my friend Mallory, which was great. Alabama doesn’t really have milkshake places, and it was so much fun to see Mallory and hang out for a little bit. The next little bit was spent going to BYU and hanging out on campus for a little bit. Aaron got really bored going to the art museum and library, but I ran into an old colleague so it was all good. Then, we went to the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum, and Aaron acted like he had died and gone to heaven. He had tons of fun, and loved the variety of stuff animals, including the Kodiak Grizzly Bear, and lots of others. The evening was spent with Aaron’s best friend James and his wife and daughter. It was exciting to meet some of Aaron’s childhood friends and get to know them. Overall, the week started out great.
Look for the rest of the trip report later this week.
