Road Trip - Utah

Last week Winston and I took a little road trip to Utah. Winston was a champ driving to and from Utah; only fussing for about 30 minutes on the drive up (which we did straight from L.A.), and for only about 15 minutes between Salt Lake and Las Vegas on the way home. We enjoyed the beautiful autumn weather and loved watching the first big snow there. I forgot how beautiful Utah is!! And how cheap, and how country (there may have been a yak around the corner from where we stayed), and how Mormon- I want to live there, but Tyler said no :(

My favorite part of the trip may have just been wandering through the BYU bookstore looking at all the Christmas stuff. Tyler's lucky I didn't buy every last thing there. I love that Mormons celebrate holidays so well!

I think Winston's favorite part of the trip was breaking the rules and shnuggling with mama all nite every nite, and luckily he hasn't had a problem going back to sleeping in his own bed again. Winston also loved Nick & Dyanna's dog, Prez. Unfortunately, Prez did not reciprocate the love so Winston would just get really excited (i.e. squeal and bounce) whenever he saw Prez and then Prez would leave :( Good to know it's safe to get a puppy though!!

We also both loved visiting with friends and family. Apart from Nick & Dyanna (where we stayed), we managed to squeeze in several college/London friends including Jess and her brand new baby girl, Dottie, some friends from L.A. who recently moved to Utah, Ang & Mary, and Emily and Amy's families. I wish I had been better at taking photos, but we were so busy so there are only a few. Enjoy!
