Utah Weekend - Tea at the Grand America

One thing I have always wanted to do while I was in Utah was to have tea at The Grand America.  It finally happened this trip.

Cali and Ashley joined me and we had a wonderful time.  The only thing wrong was that Tessa wasn't there to enjoy it with us.

The tea room is beautiful and we had a sofa in a cozy corner.

The tea started out with yummy strawberries and cream.  I had a delicious orange spice herbal tea

The waiter brought over this seed pod in some hot water and we watched it bloom into a flower.
You can drink the water, it makes a kind of tea.

Cali gave it a try and so did I - it tasted nasty!

The next course was savory sandwiches and scones.  So many choices!  The scones with lemon curd and cream were my favorite.

They even put a gluten free plate together for Cali!  Next was the sweets - so many yummy choices.  The macarons were my favorite of course!

It was a delightful and relaxing way to spend the afternoon and it was fun to spend it with Cali and Ashley.  I loved getting to know Ashley better!

Earlier that morning I had gone to see Addi's soccer team play.  It worked out that her team was playing Nicky's team so I got to see them both play!
They both made goals!

I met David and Tricia for an early dinner at Cubby's and it was fun to catch up with them.  I then met Cali, Emily and the girl's at Taco Amigo so Addi could have her Supreme Nachos and I got another peach shake!!  There was  BYU football game that night so we headed over to BYU to go bowling since we figured no one would be around and we were right!

What would an evening of bowling be without a dance party!

Think we used up all her smiles!
I love spending time with these girls!!!  Sunday we went to church and there was a Regional Conference.  Then Logan, Ashley and Cali came over to The Compound for dinner and we celebrated Baker's birthday and I headed home to airport to fly home!!

Love spending time with my family!!
