24th Staycation

We’ve spent the last two days in Salt Lake on a little family staycation (yes, I know…as if we haven’t had enough vacations lately). Philip’s parents are in Utah for a week and a half and wanted to spend a couple of days with us, so with Philip’s work connections, we got the hook up on a free room at Salt Lake’s Grand America hotel and have been trying out fun restaurants, shopping at the new City Creek shopping center, and acting like tourists.

Yesterday we walked two blocks from our hotel and watched the 24th of July Pioneer Day parade. Despite the blazing sun, it was a fun parade.

Today we go back to real life, and have to wait a whole two weeks until our next trip!

Happy Wednesday!

p.s. I’ve been documenting more of this trip on my instagram — I’m @merricksart if you’re interested in following along!
