I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I was lucky enough to take a little family trip up to Southern Utah for a couple days. It was quaint, quiet and just what we all wanted. It's nice to take a time out, take time with your family and look at your phone and see "NO SERVICE." It was a breath of fresh air - literally.
Our first stop was a place my Dad insisted we try. WINGERS, it's a Utah thing and my Dad was bound to try the supposedly amazing wings he had been hearing about. I have to admit it was pretty good. I loved the popcorn on the table to snack on as well as the variety of sauces.
Raindrops hit the windshield hard as we drive up the the huge mountain on Friday afternoon. We no longer needed AC and the windows got very cold. Dad announced that it was 49 degrees. YEP, in mid August, that's when I knew we weren't in Arizona anymore.
We arrived to the cabin later that evening and all I can say is charming. A true cabin in the woods. This place was not modern, fancy, high-tech or foofy by any means. It was the real deal, an A frame wood cabin, green shag carpet in the loft, a wrap around porch, and a wood-burning fireplace. We had visits from deer and squirrels each morning and enjoyed every second of our family time. Saturday we woke up to a yummy breakfast and coffee on the porch. We filled the day with a bike ride, a hike, a visit into town (where we stocked up on more snacks and a movie), and lastly a walk around a beautiful lake. Family trips like this are rare. I feel very blessed to have parents that want to do stuff together with their kids. Now that I am all grown up and will be starting a family of my own, my family values will be passed on. These are the important little things that we all need to take time to do. This weekend was the true definition of QUALITY TIME.
A weekend well spent.
