Hey, hey! It's sooooo great to be home! Sela and I had a great time in Cedar City with Lauren, but I think we were all ready for our normal schedules! Brian surprised me on Friday with a trip to Springdale and a stay at our favorite B&B, The Desert Thistle.
The Desert Thistle is actually located in Rockville, about 5 minutes from the Zions Nation Park Entrance. Rockville is a tiny town with a little white church, warm weather, and friendly folks. Brian and I first stayed at the Desert Thistle for our first anniversary last year and have been back twice. Maureen and Warner are great hosts, the rooms are always really clean and they are always excited to see us! This weekend they had a funeral in Salt Lake City, but let us stay anyway. It was really nice to have the place to ourselves!
We also love the small town of Springdale, they have great restaurants, fun shops, art galleries, and numerous festivals throughout the year, including a St. Patrick's Day parade in a few weeks! If you are in the area you should check it out!
I will have a few more pics of our mini-vacation in a few days!
