Utah highlights

While in Utah we stayed with my mom's best friend and her husband (Susan and Larry). Growing up we would visit them every year and they would visit us. For those of you who have heard my families conversion story this is the Susan that I talk about. She and my mom have been best friends since middle school. Susan and Larry are wonderful people and it was great to be able to spend time with them! We were also able to see two of their five children and had a great time catching up with them. It is fun to remininse old times!
Here is a shot of Susan and my mom:
We had a busy two days in Utah. We were out of the house by 10:00 a.m. and did not get in bed until 1:00 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We should have been exhausted, but we had so much fun that it did not faze us that we were sleep deprived!

On Friday we visited BYU. We ate at the creamery, went to the bookstore, library and ate frozen custard. We met up with Mike, Heather and Marissa for dinner at Gateway then went to Marissa's house for a late night of games.
Unfortunately while at BYU I did get one of these (a parking ticket): The Bishop would be proud....
We ate, ate, and ate while in Utah. Why do they have so many good places to eat?!?!?!? Anyway, here are a few highlights of our eating pleasures:

Here we are at Icebergs in St. George. Can you believe that these shakes are mini's???

We finally age at Cafe Rio. I think we were the only ones in our Ward who had never been to one. It was so yummy! And yes, I did confirm that they are coming to Lake Forest....just did not get a date.
