Shakespeare Trip 2010

Every mom should get to take a trip like the one I get to take with my sisters and mom each year. It's tradition for us to gather the group and head to Cedar City, where my parents both grew up, to visit family and go to the Shakespearean festival held there every year. This year, we got to take along my new sister-in-law, Bizzie, and our first-ever boy: baby Harvey! They were both delightful traveling companions.

Our first stop was the Springville Art Museum for their annual quilt show, and I just took a few pics of my favorites, though I could have done many more.

Wouldn't this make a great baby quilt?

I want this one for my bed:

Ooh! So perfect to hang on my wall during the holidays!

Again, I want this one for my bed. I love all the pinwheels.

After checking out our digs in Cedar, of which Harvey definitely approved...

we went to perennial favorite restaurant, Milts, for steaks with Dan, Jodie, and Alexa. They know where to get the good stuff. That night, we saw "Much Ado About Nothing," which made me want to watch the movie version again. Oh, Keanu Reeves, you are so terrible....

Saturday took us to the fitness room early to do P90X, which Rachel brought (so committed!), then off to the cemetery to visit our grandparents' graves, eat lunch, and tell stories. Rachel has a gift for getting people to talk about themselves and share interesting things, and we got to know our new sister pretty well. She is one. Funny. Gal.

Also, Harvey enjoyed the pineapple. :)



That afternoon, we saw "The 39 Steps," crashed in the hotel room for a few rounds of Bananagrams and baby cuddles....


... after which we hit the Garden House for dinner and, on Alexa's recommendation, their fabulous chocolate cake. Which gave us all the energy we needed to enjoy the Greenshow....

...before seeing The Merchant of Venice. And enjoying too many tarts. Raspberry tarts.... Cream cheese tarts....

Top the weekend off with a car ride full of laughs and a stop at Kan Kun in Beaver for flautas, and we call it a wrap for this year. Ladies, it was a blast! See you next year!
