Time to pick up Uncle Dane! We fetched him from UVSC and headed back for a little Christmas shopping in Provo. About this time my stomach really started to rumble. I had to make a quick stop at the school where Joy teaches to pick up the infamous red suitcase and by the time we made it to the store, I was in pain. Unfortunately, I was left feeling this way for the rest of the day...yuck!
Salt Lake City here we come! I had been looking forward to going to Gateway Shopping Center and Temple Square the whole trip. I just hadn't been looking forward to it in the condition I was in! Resting on a bench for 45 minutes helped a bit, but I didn't get to eat California Pizza Kitchen and I didn't get to do any shopping. However, I was able to convince Zach to go visit Santa. He was a stud!
We said goodbye to Dane around 7:30 and decided to take a quick stop in Deseret Book. That was disastrous as well. Zach jumped out of the stroller and spilled two gigantic pops EVERYWHERE and Kennedy wanted to touch EVERYTHING! When we got back to the hotel, my old college friend Jeff came to visit. It was great seeing him and catching up on his life.
I know it sounds like the most awful time, but despite all the "flaws" in our day, it was really quite wonderful! One thing I can say for sure, there was nothing better than the sound of two rowdy kids, snoozing soundly! Who knew what the next day would bring!
