When Mama Visits
I am exhasted as I write this post. My eyes are dry, and my back and feet hurt. But I am so, so happy right now.
This past weekend was filled with adventures. It was jam packed with fun and family and some great new memories.
It started out with my mom coming up to Utah to visit for a weekend. I love living in Utah, but the hardest part about it is being so far from my family in California. So when my mom decided to come up for the weekend, I was pretty excited about it.
Our Saturday started with a visit to the small farmer's market at Gardner Village. I have decided that I love farmer's markets! They are so quaint and offer such variety. Plus, my mom insisted that we support our local farmers and businesses, so we left with quite a few spoils: fresh salsa and chips, warm tamales, delicious peaches and corn on the cob, and even some tea and a cute tea infuser mug.
Next on our agenda was house hunting. Andrew and I are looking to buy a house, so we went and walked through a few in Herriman. Honestly, we were lucky enough to find a house that we are interested in, so we discussed it with our agent and put in an offer. (More information on this on a later post...especially if we get the house!)
Then we met up with Jacob, Danika, and Gus for lunch and a hike. Gus is the newest addition to the family. Honestly, if we buy a house, we are now convinced that we will also be getting a dog. We absolutely loved Gus and his puppy energy and curiosity, and both Andrew and I are hungry for a little puppy love of our own. Anyway, we drove up Guardsman Pass and took a short hike to Blood Lake. It is a dog-friendly hike and was actually quite short. We enjoyed some sandwiches and watching the dogs play in the water. I loved it and plan on returning with a dog of my own and a bathing suit next time :)
We left the hike and Andrew, my mom, and I went through Park City to get home. On the way, we stopped at the outlets and did a little back to school shopping.
And finally, after a shower and quick nap, we had a delicious dinner at Red Rock in downtown Salt Lake. It was quite the day and I felt lucky to spend it with some people I cherish deeply.
Thanks for coming to Utah, Mom! :) We love you!
