UTAH- This is the Place!

This last weekend my family finally made the flight to Utah with me, just to see what the fuss is all about. We were actually there to get some wedding/married life business straightened out and taken care of, but of course, as Peters we managed to learn a lot about each other AND the great state of Utah along the way. For instance:

1. You can, and you will, get lost in the Salt Lake Valley. I don't care HOW many of you constantly tell me, "It's a grid system, it's SO EASY to figure out!" Also, Utah traffic heading down to Provo on a Friday night is atrocious, and Utahans... you cannot drive. So yes, driving in Utah is ALWAYS a pleasant experience.

Where are you going? Well... wouldn't YOU like to know?! And don't even get me started on Utah below the point of the mountain...

2. You could probably go an entire year, once a day to The Cheesecake Factory, and never try EVERYTHING on the menu, it's that huge... And, no matter how full you are, there is ALWAYS room for key lime mango cheesecake. It's tradition.

I normally don't stray from my Dulce de Leche cheesecake... but for you? I'll make an exception.

3. It WILL snow in Utah the last weekend in May, and you better be ready for it. And if you're going up to Park City to sight-see on the aforementioned snowy May weekend, you should bring a coat, because people WILL get upset if you refuse to get out of the car.

Okay... maybe this is an exaggeration of the weather...

4. Joe's Crab Shack= obnoxious on Saturday nights. We had the rudest server EVER, and on top of that, at around 8 o'clock the girls tried to dance like they were contestants at Coyote Ugly... only a lot less graceful [if Coyote Ugly has any grace]. But I did get a SWEET T-shirt.

You feel awkward just looking at this, DON'T YOU?

5. IKEA cinnamon rolls will bring families together... and that store has everything. Want a dancing carrot doll? Done!

I finally saw the nutrition information on these. I still eat'em.

Carrot= Matt; Strawberry= Me; Broccoli= Stephen

6. City Creek Center is closed on Sundays. Fashion Place is not. Deal with it.

All in all, it's always hard to say goodbye to Utah. No matter what you all might think about the place... it certainly makes for an eventful trip!
