A Special Utah Visitor!

It's no secret that Rachelle, Lindsey {The Teacher Wife} and I are proud Utah natives! We only live about an hour away from each other, and every so often we meet up to have lunch together. Well... last weekend we had a very special Utah visitor: the *fabulous* Amy Lemons!!

Amy {from Step Into Second Grade and When Life Gives You... The Lemons} and her family were coming to Utah for an adoption reunion, which gave us all a good reason to meet up and have quite the fun little weekend together!

Poor Rachelle was still teaching on Thursday (she teaches summer school), but the rest of us met up at The Discovery Gateway children's museum in Salt Lake. Of course Amy brought Joelle, and I brought my two kids too. The kids loved playing at the museum and it gave us ladies some good time to sit and chat!
After the museum we took the kids up to the splash pad. The kids all ended up sitting on Lindsey's lap!

Later, after Rachelle was out of school, we met up for some shopping at the new City Creek mall. 

 Then we went to dinner at the Red Iguana for some very yummy Mexican food!

The next day we woke up early to take a trip up to Park City. We went shopping at the outlet mall, ate lunch at the Canyons Resort, and then went to the Olympic Park Museum.

Another group shot of us up in Park City. 

On Saturday, the girls (minus me...) met up for dinner. It was Amy's last night in Utah. I wasn't there but I hear that it was a great time. :)

 It was so fun to have this special time with Amy!! The teacher blogging community is amazing!! It's incredible that teachers from different parts of the country/world can become friends, share ideas, and help encourage one another!!

Who wants to come visit us next?!

I need to come in next time you have a meet-up. I can see that I will be the grandma of the group...but I would be okay with that.
