Utah Sister Trip

On Wednesday, my sister Jami and I drove my grandma up to Utah to her 60th High School reunion.
I know...60 YEARS. Pretty neat.
After what felt like the LONGEST drive of my life, (but still enjoyable), we dropped grandma off at her sister Darlene's house in Pleasant Groves, then headed down to Provo to stay with Pop Pop and Jody.

We woke up Thursday and drove up to Salt Lake to spend some time at the Salt Lake temple. Neither of us had been inside besides to do baptisms, so it was really neat! We both enjoyed it.

After the temple we walked over to City Creek mall for some lunch and a little shopping, then headed back down to Provo before traffic got too bad!

The Prothero's came and met us in Provo for dinner at Shoots, and boy oh boy was it delicious :)
After dinner we went back to Pop Pop's and got all set up for a Little Ms. Lex bead party.
The weather was beautiful, and it was so fun to sit and visit with family. 

Friday morning we woke up and went for a walk/jog up the hill. 
After showering we ran a few errands, including a trip to the BYU bookstore for chocolate covered cinnamon bears and mint truffles, then stopped at Ripples for lunch!
 (it just isn't a trip to Utah if you don't stop at Ripples.)

My brother-in-law Matt came and met up with us at Ripples, and it was so fun to sit and chat with him! (As much as I hate to admit it...I think that was the most words I've ever spoken to Matt. haha!) I sure do love that Camp family :) 

We spent the remainder of Friday afternoon wandering around University mall, where Jami and I both found a cute new Sunday dress, and a few other fun items.  (count on Utah to have modest clothing! thank goodness.)
For dinner we stopped at Cafe Rio, then hit up Target for a little more shopping' and to walk off our dinner. 

Saturday morning we packed up and hit the road at the bright and early hour of 5:30 a.m. It was a complete down-pour for the first 3 hours of the drive...and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little nervous. (Us AZ drivers don't have a lot of experience with rain, ya know?) But we made it! And as soon as the sun decided to come out, driving in the rain got a whole lot easier. 

It was a fun trip, and much needed sister time!! 

Thanks for the memories Jay.
Thanks Pop Pop and jody for letting us stay with you.
And thanks Grandma for trusting me to drive you to and from Utah! :)

Hooray for family!
