The weather was a hot 105 but there was a breeze blowing all through the show which made the temperature tolerable. (And yes, Heather, I am a wimpy Utahn LOL....just can't take the heat after it hits 95!! But I do love to visit all those hot spots, as long as I can come back home.) The surrounding landscape was breathtaking and this picture just doesn't do it justice. You just had to be there. We ate dinner at the Amphitheatre along with every wasp in Washington County!
These two pictures show the fountain the runs from the theatre to the bottom of the parking lot. Someone did a great job designing all this.
Here we are enjoying our mini vacation!! Hubby trying to look mean. Can you guess he hates his picture taken and usually puts his hand in front of his face. This time he instead pulls Mr. Grumpy Gills, but don't let that fool you!! Down deep he is a big ole teddy bear! And here I am all wind blown and trying to look tall and thin...how am I doing??
Thank you to my wonderful semi-perfect hubby (Did I mention not to tell him I said that?) But this really was a great trip and he is almost perfect!
On our way back home we stopped in Aurora which, for those of you who know Utah is just a little north of Richfield. I have a 3rd Great Grandfather that I had found is a descendant from the Mayflower and I wanted to find his grave. (and YES I plan on becoming a Mayflower snob, so be prepared!!) It was Sunday afternoon when we arrived and threatening thunder storms. We found the cemetery, found a map but didn't find any graves we were looking for. I was trying to find something very old and kept walking right by this headstone. On the fourth trip through the same spot this is what I found. I was so excited and this was a great ending to our little vacation. Zimri Harford Baxter had a son Zimri Harford who had a son Zimri Harford who had a son Merl Harford who had a son Merl LaMar who is my father!
Anyway, we did have a wonderful time! Tuachan is so nice but if you go take water, a pad to sit on and those cute little bottle fans that let you squirt water on yourself to battle the heat.
Sorry about the way this post looks...I am ready to throw my computer out the window!!! PLUS I feel like a two year old because I can't make the blasted thing work.
