Wonderful Weekend

Oh what a wonderful weekend we had, but it went by way to fast
(possibly because it included around 24 hours of driving?)
Camaron, his friend Kevin, and I drove up to Salt Lake City, UT for a fun weekend filled with cousins, a mission reunion, General Conference, and great memories cheesy

We got a little lost on the way and ended up in Manti, UT. The temple there is GORGEOUS
What Kevin does for us to take our pics

 While in Provo, a group of us went to dinner at Gloria's Little Italy. I worked there in 2008. It has changed soooooo much, but the food is still totally amazing. Best. pasta. ever.

All of us with our accordian-playing friend

After dinner, we all went to hit up the games at Nickelcade/Nickel City. Sooooo stankin fun. I hadn't been there since I was like 12, but I still got it. Cam's buddy, Chad, is like the master. He had won 1,000 tickets on one game like a week ago. Then, that night, he won 100 more on the same game. ...and then he won 100 a few more times on some other games. It's ridiculous. 

It was sunny and warm the whole weekend.
Then, we woke up super early to drive home on Sunday ...only to walk outside and find this:

It had snowed like crazy during the night!!! It was so cool (literally)



I think one of my favorite memories from the trip was when we were driving home. We got stuck in the snow in front of a restaurant, so we ended up eating there. All of our shoes were soaked -because they were all shoes made for AZ (not snow), one of us was in shorts and a t-shirt, and the whole restaurant hated us because we had apparently sat at a table that belonged to someone else. Yes, it was one of those tiny towns where everyone has their own table at the local diner and they all wear hunting gear all of the time.

Basically, our trip was an adventure
...and we're never driving up to UT again if it's just for a weekend. :)

  7. Haha only someone from a place that doesn't deal with bucket fulls of snow would find that snow storm cool! ;) Totally ruining our warm weather.
    Looks like you had an adventure! I love the Manti temple! I used to live in a tiny town by Manti, so I've been there quite a few times. And you gotta love those crazy small hunting towns! :)

  9. I got to go to that temple last summer and it IS beautiful! As beautiful inside as out. And you guys are amazing for doing that much driving in one weekend. I always get cabin fever when I drive that much in such a short amount of time.

  26. Nickelcade!! Best place ever. Did you guys do their laser tag by chance? I've always wanted to know if it was any good.
    I've never been to Gloria's Little Italy but if it is worthy of the title for Best Pasta Ever than I really need to go!
    And I'm so glad to see the Accordian man!! I love him. He used to work at Ottavios where my brother worked so me and him are like best buds. ;)
    P.S. the guy in the lower right corner in the accordian picture is a babe. Just sayin. haha now is when you tell me he's happily married and/or 45 but looks like he's in his 20s. right? :)
