A Visit from the Parentals
My dad had a convention he needed to attend for work here in SLC last week which meant we were spoiled and had my parents in town for a few days. On Tuesday, we went up to Temple Square and City Creek. It had rained in the morning which cooled down the afternoon making it perfect weather to explore. The flowers were beautiful and we really loved walking through parts of the visitor’s center we hadn’t been to in a while.
Wednesday was the Outdoor Retailer show that my dad and I attended all day long while my mom watched the kids. It was really fun spending the day with my dad. I was thinking while working with him how grateful I am to get to do stuff like this with my dad. He’s a pretty good boss 😉 !
Then our last day, we went up to Tibble Fork for a little hike and then picnic there at the reservoir. The water was pretty cold though, so when the kids were done splashing, we kept heading up the canyon to Silver Lake. I feel like we could have spent the rest of the day up there because the views were incredible and it was just so serene. We played in the creeks, Finn threw rocks forever, and we took in the beautiful scenery all around us. When we got home, we went to the pool after Finn’s nap and wrapped up the day with s’mores in the backyard. It was such a dreamy day!
My parents left early on Friday. I cried on and off for the rest of the day because it was so hard to say goodbye! Till we meet again!
