Update on the trip!
Last monday was Spencer's and my 3rd wedding anniversary -- we celebrated with dinner out at PF Chang's. it was delicious and just a great night out. luckily for us, spencer had the week off of school (for a fall break), so we were able to take a short trip!
we went down to Bryce, in southern Utah, and stayed the night at a little bed and breakfast, called the Arrowhead Country Inn
. it was really nice, we stayed in this little cabin
(no picture of the inside, unfortunately), and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. breakfast was delicious, and we sat with some very interesting people. that's always a bonus. :)
as we were headed to the park, we noticed how PERFECT the weather was! you know, 75, sunny, a cool wind -- when spencer asked if i had brought any sunscreen. eek? i hadn't even thought about it, unfortunately. off we went to terry's country store, to buy the most expensive generic sunscreen i've ever seen. :) $6.39 for this western family brand sunscreen. sad, but we couldn't skip it -- a redhead and a blonde? no no no no. i'm hoping to avoid skin cancer for both of us.
then it was off to bryce canyon for the day! they have the park set up so that you can drive to most of the most spectacular sites, and just walk a few feet to see them. we decided this was just about perfect for us, because there are lots of little trails to hike around (for spencer) and i could still see most of the great things - we could spend time together and enjoy the park. that may not make sense to some, but to my fellow migraine-friends, i know you get it.
bryce canyon is known for its amazing rock formations, hoodoos
. it was stunning. i really couldn't believe how beautiful it was.
and a couple more, for good measure.
