Road Trip!

While I spent some down time reading on Friday after work (I'm still trying to finish Eclipse), Brant got home from his first Mexico trip (to Guadalajara and back). He said that it was quite the experience! Afterwards, we settled for a trip to the gym and then hit the hay.

On Sat morning we woke up and headed to Costco (yay for Costco coupons). Then we tankered up and hit the road headed for St. George. We were excited for a road trip- it reminded us of the road trips we took back when we were dating. We got there around 4pm and set up camp (thanks again to Brant's Grandma Millerberg for hosting us!) We had some dinner at a local Mexican place (think Bajo or Cafe Rio) and took a minute to drive up the hill to the airport and take a couple scenic pictures- here's a fun one of Brant "holding" the temple (as you can probably see by the squinting, it was a very sunny day)...

We got to Tuacahn by 8pm (the tickets said to be there by 8:30) for Les Miserables - it was terrific! It was after midnight when the show ended (can you believe that even at midnight it was still 95 degrees?)
After church on Sunday and linner (lunch/dinner) with Gma Millerberg, we headed back home. I captured this quick shot of the St. George temple on the way out- a place I called home for 10 and a half months of my mission.


What a great trip- now its time for another week of work!

Home? Did your friends mention "St. George" and "home" in the same sentence? Who are their relatives down there? Do I know them? I love it when someone talks about St. George...the home of Brant's birth...and his brother, Kyle's...and a lot of other peoples I know like...ME!

Nancy- that's actually one of my mission companions from Japan that was calling St. George "home". She was a Visitor Center Sister too :)

I have heard this is fantastic.

Looks like 'home is a state of mind' or 'home is where the heart is' ...oh 'home, sweet, home.'
somebody stop me before I think of another one...
