You would too if you had the most adorable sister-in-laws come visit. We shopped every thrift store and chatted every night into the wee hours.
Adie and Heather (Heather also wrote about her trip here and here) were pretty impressed with Bella's songs she wrote for the piano.
Adie came bearing gifts for all. Best January Christmas ever. We were gaily opening, playing and trying on our new things when we had a freaky incident with Jarom and a pocketknife that sliced his wrist. Let's just say blood was gushing like there was no tomorrow. Poor Jarom thought he was going to die. Thank goodness for Matt's quick reflexes and knowledge.
Bella received her first scrapbook and away she went.
The whole book is great but this page has a little piece of Provo history and heart.
We also love when we have company because they always want to go to our favorite places to eat (like Sammy's).
Sweet potato stache
Pure beauty in Midway.
Checking out the local hot springs. We came ready to take a dip but Adie refused to leave the car.
So Heather and Matt ventured out to see. They came back with lots of gorgeous pictures. Matt has been trying to get us to go here for years. I have a feeling we will be back here very soon.
Running back to the car. You can see the steam across the snowy meadow on the right.
Finally making it to our real destination after standing in a blizzard and tracking down a shuttle. Watch out Sundance - the Beattys are on parade!
Utterly cool stop
To get warm drinks
and treats. We ended up talking here at the Java Cow forever. We just don't know how to get a move on. Never enough time for chitchat.
We only stopped at a few places but Dolly's bookstore one is the best. And these are the best classics in the best new covers EVER. I want!!
Made our way to get tickets. They had one left for the night and there was no time to discuss whether or not one of us should go because it was snatched just that quick.
Last full day with the girls and one long winter drive. Matt and I took turns driving our own car with the kids and being in Adie and Heather's car to continue our nonstop conversations.
This long drive is always worth it. Crystal Hot Springs. It is rich with minerals (more concentrated than Iceland's Blue Lagoon) and is the second most poplar place to come soak - the Dead Sea being number one (we heard that somewhere). See that pleasant smile on my face? It is because my back is in the hottest water there. I love the heat.
We saw some people pulling each other around by their hair. It looked very relaxing and had to try it ourselves.
Jarom getting his float on while I try to drag Adie around by her hair.
Oey loving the float
and piggyback rides.
Steamy hot goodness
Enjoying the sunset but not leaving when he does.
