Utah Vacation 2011

We have been vacationing at Snowbird Utah since Saturday Aug 20 to Saturday Aug. 27.
We have been having fun. Todd and Julianna stayed with us from Sunday till Tuesday. We played a lot of Dominios with Todd and Julianna. We went on walks to the Snowbird Center and walks to the Pond. On Tuesday we rode the Tram to the top of the summit at Snowbird. It was fun. Tuesday evening we drove to Murray and ate dinner at Rubio's.

First time to Cold Stone Ice Cream

I know, I know, I've been a bad blogger. I haven't posted on the family blog in over a month.

It seems everything gets posted on facebook first, so I don't feel like posting again on the family blog.

Darn that facebook.

But today I decided to post here first. And then maybe I'll also post the photos on facebook.

Anyhoo, can you believe that I have never been to Cold Stone for ice cream? Me either. Especially since my family loves ice cream. The only reason I have for not going is the cost.

But now that my niece Taylor (Eric's daughter) works there, I decided it was about time to go. So Saturday night that is what we did. Mike and I stopped by Eric's house first so we could follow them to Cold Stone as I had no idea where it was.

And who was our helpful ice cream scooper once we got there? Why it's Taylor.

Here she is busy posing for photos while trying to mix up my Founder's Favorite.

I had a really hard time making up my mind as to what I wanted. Too many options to choose from. A real stressful situation for a non committal person like me.

Eric, Jeannette & Cade were the only ones to go from their family. Jase stayed at home and Danica is still up in Tahoe. Which by the way, I get to hopefully go see in a couple of weeks. I'm so excited. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited to see Danica too, it's just that I've never been to Tahoe. I'm going with Eric to pick up Danica in a couple of weeks over my birthday weekend. Can't wait! That is, if work will let me off a couple of days.

Sorry for the distraction. Back to the matter at hand. Ice Cream!

Here is my masterpiece. Looks yummy, no? Loved the waffle shell.

Mike got some strawberry/banana concoction that I can't remember the name of. Normally it comes with graham crackers, but they were out, so he got pecans instead.

And here is Mike enjoying his ice cream. Everything was very yummy & I highly recommend & give Cold Stone "2 thumbs up".

I'd give them more, if I had more than 2 thumbs. Which I'm glad I don't. What would you do with more than 2 thumbs? Other than give more thumbs up to Cold Stone?

We even gave our ice cream scooper a huge tip. Thanks Taylor! You made my first trip to Cold Stone, a very yummy experience. This definitely won't be my last trip.

What is your favorite thing to get at Cold Stone?

And guess what I found this weekend?

There is a Starshine Dr in my town. Too bad it didn't say Starshine Chic Dr. That would have made it even cooler. And no, I don't want to move to this street. I like my house just fine.
