Emily, April, Stevie and I hit the town tonight.
We ate at:
Pizzeria Seven Twelve
and it was WOW!
Spent a little time at Border's Bookstore,
and then finished it off at Farr's Ice Cream Shop.
It was delightful.
Thanks for a most excellent time.

If you love Indian Food...head to the Indian Palace in Provo.  It's authentic and fantastic!  So is the owner!  Stevie and I met up with one of our all time favorite missionaries that served in our ward back home.  Johnny frequents this place often and is practically BFF with this guy.  Good times, good food, great company!


You CANNOT visit Utah and NOT go to the temple.  There's just no excuse.  There's one on every corner it seems.  This one is probably my favorite in Utah...although there are some I have yet to go to.  I grabbed my sister-n-law Alana to go with me.  She's always a fun time.  We were both so grateful for the opportunity to slip away for a short time to feel the peaceful spirit that resides in the House of the Lord.


We can't visit Utah and not swim at Ben's community pool.  It's pretty fantastic.


Sometimes when you hike with a professor, you take the path less traveled.  That's what happened today.  Not sure how a "non-native" Utah-n (Zach) ended up being the trail blazer but somehow that's what happened.  And trail blaze we did, or maybe bush whack is a better word.  Seriously...the first 1/2 mile or so was STRAIGHT up the mountain.  Check out the first picture.  All the bums in the air should clue you in to how steep the climb was.  We were quite doubtful at times that we were going to make it but we did.  I was really impressed with Zach's 2 and 4 year old who walked most of the way and NEVER complained.  It was no easy hike either.  Kudos to David and Gabe.  Thankfully we found the well traveled path on the way down and did not have to endure prickers, treacherous cliffs, tall grass and deep ravines.  Made me appreciate that much more what the earlier pioneers had to endure on a daily basis.
