Spent the day in Salt Lake City. I adore this city! It was fun to drive up and down the streets while Max was sleeping in the back seat. I love you SLC! It is the city of my birth. AND I love those UT mountains. BEAUTIFUL! I wish I would have taken pictures all over the city, but Max was sleeping in the back. *sigh* I love that city.
We went here to Discovery Gateway on the corner. What a FUN place for a kid!
So much to explore and do!
Here's a few pictures of the Gateway mall, where we were at the Discovery place.
Then we went to visit my brother and his family. Max always has fun with his cousins.
DAY 6- Tuesday Dec. 28th
Bean Museum in Provo
I love these pictures of Max checking out the nativity.
He loved the Lions. He would roar and say, "Lion"
I love how they made this nativity with all the surrounding animals
We even got to enter a contest to name the elephant.
This butterfly is so pretty. It's made of all different types and colors of individual butterflies.
We had to stop at the creamery afterwards for some yummy ice cream.
We had a great time with family while we were there. It was so nice to go be with everyone. hang out and play games, go to movies, do a little shopping, talk. It was a great vacation.
DAY 7 Wednesday- Dec. 29th
Drove the whole way home in terrible weather. Snow and rain 90% of the way home. It was exhausting! It didn't go as well as the drive to Utah. We finally made it home.
