You may never realize how much you love something until you leave it. Living somewhere so different from Utah has made me appreciate where I’m from, and realize all the things I love about it. While in Utah we squeezed in as much as we could, trying to get our fill of the things we miss about living there. Here are some cell phone pictures of what we love in Utah and fun things we did there.
Cafe Rio, of course
Regular snow storms and tons of snow! Snow that actually sticks around, builds up and gets deep!
This picture is from a drive in the canyon, and it reminded me of another thing I miss: driving in cars! Taking whatever route you want to your destination, leaving and arriving whenever you want.
Hello Yogurt (we made a trip during a blizzard). I have a history with Hello Yogurt. Sara and I have a history with Hello Yogurt, which the boys get pulled into. And Dave and Kaylene came along for the ride too. :)
The babies. All the nieces and nephews. All the family.
A trip to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple with the family. So great to be there together.
The Pie pizzeria after the temple. Haven’t had pizza like this in NYC! It’s a different style and it was delicious. (The root beer was so good. Ahh… root beer.)
JCW’s for burgers, fries and fry sauce. YUM. Thank you, Utah, for fry sauce. And those char-broiled burgers really are one of a kind. We haven’t found a similar burger place in the city. (Klane also made sure to visit Apollo Burger while in Utah.)
Macey’s soft serve with Mike and Sara, and then hanging out at their place. Just like the good old days!
Our visit to Utah was so great. It was so wonderful to spend time with our family. It was almost like we never left! We love and miss all of you, and can’t wait till our next visit! In the meantime, here’s our open invitation for everyone to come visit us and see our second home, here in NYC.
