It’s been quite an adventurous weekend. A friend of mine, Jennifer, flew in from North Carolina for the weekend, and I’ve been showing her practically the whole of Utah. This post may have to be broken up into a few posts…

After showing her around Salt Lake, we headed down to Southern Utah. Waking up suuuper early to get to Cedar City by 10 to pick up my sister…

waking upOnce everything was packed into the car (and a couple mad dashes back into the house for forgotten items) we were on the road! We drove…

Seeing as neither my sister and I can actually swim, the waves were getting larger, the wind was slapping our face, and the rain was starting to beat down, we were quite scared for our lives, and nearly drowned swimming back to shore….So I don’t recommend swimming when it’s stormy!

After we had safely made it back to my car, and realized that we hadn’t actually died, we cleaned off and left for our hotel….in Mesquite.

Yup, because it was a holiday weekend, practically all of the hotels had no vacancy in Southern Utah. So we went to Nevada instead.
