Monday Moments | Road trip Getaway

Hey, everyone! How was your week last week? As predicted, last week was busy for me, but it was a lot of fun! Here are some highlights :)

I spent most of Monday hanging out with my older sister doing art. She does more technical art than me, but I was pretty proud of how this turned out, even with the mistakes. You should check out her art here.

I have always loved the idea of celebrating the summer solstice, but I never seem to plan ahead well enough. This year I remembered though! We got snow cones to celebrate the longest day of the year. These are the best snow cones I've been able to find! They're cheap and they're delicious. I definitely recommend that you try them out!

On Thursday I went with my Mom to visit my great aunt and learn a little bit more about our family history. We went to lunch and then drove up to bountiful to meet her. It was so interesting to hear the stories and learn more! I've always been one that wanted to know more about my family, even if I am terrible at doing family history itself.

Friday we spent getting ready to leave for St. George and driving down. Fun fact: I don't actually like driving. I'd much rather be a passenger, so my sweet Brian is usually the one driving. Lucky for us, he likes to drive!

We stayed in St. George with some friends in this giant house that almost had enough rooms for everyone to have their own room. I won't lie, part of the greatness about this trip was the AC. Even though St. George was REALLY hot, it was a lot cooler for us since the AC actually works! We actually got cold at night instead of roasting to death. Brian decided he needed to run while we were there, so he ended up running at about 7 AM and crashing for a nap around 10 AM. 

Sunday we visited the Pine Valley church. It is a historic church and so beautiful! They give tours all the time and the drive was only about 40 minutes from St. George. Not only that but the drive was beautiful getting out there. I highly recommend it if you're out there.

We decided to visit the Pine Valley Reservoir at the recommendation of the man who gave us the tour of the church. It's only about 2 miles away and 5$ a car to get in. It was gorgeous! We didn't stay too long, mostly just walked around a little bit, but it was still worth it. It would be the perfect place to bring a picnic and go for a walk. We're planning to visit it again sometime in the future.

Goals/To dos for the week:

-Get things together for passport
-Go grocery shopping
