We had a funny couple of run-ins with the Mitchell's (we met Aaron Mitchell our freshmen year at BYU and then his wife back when they were dating), which resulted in trading ice cream scoops for crepe desserts. While eating our crepes, the idea of a weekend getaway to St. George was born. We realized we all liked the outdoors and wanted to take advantage of Utah summers. After some brainstorming, we decided to take a trip on Memorial Day weekend. Grammy and Grandpa graciously allowed us to use their condo in St. George and so our little crepe idea was brought to reality.
Tayler and I had a girly Saturday afternoon of antique shopping. We found the cutest antique stores and fell in love with the quaint downtown area of St. George.
Sunday brought a picnic outside the St. George Temple. We attended church with Mimi and Papa and then had a lovely dinner at their home. It was so great to see them as always. We even got to help break in their new fire pit by making s'mores!
We hiked the Narrows on Monday morning and froze for the first half of the trip. Luckily the sun came out and we got to enjoy a really beautiful hike back in. Aaron loved the hike because he could pick his own path. We waded back and forth through the Virgin River and saw the most amazing red canyon walls.
I'm so glad we got to take advantage of the weekend. It really makes you feel grown up when you go on your own vacations.
I'm excited to see what future ideas we hatch over ice cream and crepes. It turned out to be such a fortuitous dessert after all.
