Weekend in Utah

I look for any excuse to go to Utah.

Earlier this year I read about a blogging conference to be held in Sandy.  I entered a giveaway to win a free ticket to the conference and I won.  I was so excited.  So this last Thursday I flew to Utah to attend the conference and see my boys!!

My friend Carol Rice (she was my original upline with CM) picked me up at the airport.  She was going to the conference too and her company Cherished Bound was one of the sponsors.  I always enjoy my time with Carol so much and it seems like we always just pick up where we left off even if it has been several years!

We enjoyed attending the conference together and I learned a lot.  Friday night the boys meet me in Sandy and we went to dinner in downtown SLC at Settebello's - one of my blog readers had recommended it.  It was a yummy pizza place - very authentic Italian pizza.  We managed to finish 3 pizzas!!

From there we went to the Conference Center Theater to see the Young Ambassador show.  Clark thought his YA watching days were over!  It was fun to see the show, a few new numbers from last year when Logan was in it and I still recognized some faces.  Afterwards we went with Logan's roommate Lane who was also at the show and had some frozen yogurt over at Gateway.

Saturday was more blogging conference and then Carol and I took our boys out for dessert Saturday night to The Chocolate - so good!  I love their vanilla cake.

I stayed at Wynn and Emily's and of course loved seeing these cute little faces!!

And we had a little tickle fest

Addie and Jacky even posed for me a bit.
  Jacky liked showing off her toothless mouth!  She lost another tooth while I was there!

Such cute sisters!
Miss Addy even let me take her picture.

Cousin Logan came over for a visit too!  I went to church with Logan Sunday morning (man, single wards are quiet) and then he joined us lunch over at Wynn and Emiilys.

A fun weekend!
