Finally getting around to posting some pics from our road trip to Utah in March to visit Jeff and Tiffany in Salt Lake City! We decided to drive and split the trip up in 2 days. We left our house on Monday afternoon around 12 and drove the first half of our trip and stayed the night at the Virgin River Casino/Hotel- that was an experience all it's own, haha! The next day we drove the other half to Salt Lake City. Twelve hours total! We got to spend that Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with Jeff and Tiffany and drove home early on Friday morning. This was Noah and Sienna's first trip to the snow. We had a great time and the kids are still talking about wanting to go back to Utah to play with their cousins and the snow!!
On the road!
This was our first stop to get out and touch the snow on the second leg of our trip, this is about an hour in to Utah from Nevada. The kids were so excited!
We got to Jeff's house around 3 that afternoon- the kids couldn't wait to get their snow clothes on and play in the snow!
Our first morning waking up in Salt Lake City, Jeff took Zach and I on a hike up the mountain behind their house while Tiffany hung back with the kids. It was a great morning workout and absolutely gorgeous!
Our last day in Salt Lake City we went to a Dinosaur Museum- it was a big hit!
Sienna playing with the sand and water interactive play area- she loved making little mountains for her mini dinosaurs!
A shark at the Dinosaur museum? Sure!
Hanging out with my paleolithic ancestors!
Noah and Luke digging for dino bones.
Noah and Sienna- more digging!
The next morning was Friday and time to get on the road back home. This is us on our pit stop in Las Vegas at a TGI Fridays for dinner. We drove the whole way home instead of breaking it up- Zach was a little stir crazy as you can see from the picture of him and Noah- haha!!
Mommy and Sisi =)
It was such a fun 3 days!! Our days were spent out and about exploring, and our nights were spent hot tubbing, watching movies or catching up on some good tivo with a little ice cream or frozen custard! It was such a fun and relaxing vacation and so great to have that time to visit with Jeff, Tiffany, Luke, Roan and Torr. It was cool to be on their turf for a change. Looking forward to making a trip back soon. We are hoping the next time around with the kids being a little older, we can get a little more adventurous and possibly try some skiing or snowboarding lessons for them (and me!) so we can hit the slopes!
