Rebecca and I were born in Utah and lived there until I was 16. We still have most of our zillion cousins and our dear sweet Grandmother living there. We try to go back every year or so. It is usually a girls road trip (Rebecca, maybe our younger sister Erika, our Mom, and sometimes Katrina or our other sister and then our kids which are mostly boys;). We are heading up again at the end of May. Our super talented Brother in Law is recreating a play that he was in during highschool. They are having a set made in Vegas where one of the former play members lives and people are coming in from all over to reunite. (I secretly think it is a really great excuse to show off that new baby of theirs;) A gaggle of us are planning to make the drive to Utah for a handful of days. I love family road trips!
So, I was wondering if you have any must-see or must-do things while we are in Utah. We are going to hit the Quilted Bear in Midvale, and Hogle Zoo. We may or may not hit Lagoon. A picnic in the canyons is a must. Iceburg rootbeer floats are totally in. Is Hardees still around with their ketcup and mayo combination? Memory Grove because we have a great-great-uncle that has a marker there from the war. The Old Spaghetti factory? Is it still around and do they still have spinach tortelini? Specifically I'm interested in great quilt shops and crafty places and good mostly fast eats (my 3 year old is on a feeding tube and I think it is mean to make him sit in a restaurant with food all around that he can't partake of).
Thanks so much!!
***Edited to add...I had no idea my friend Melanie over at Sugardoodle would mention us right now. How perfect is that timing and my question for Utah peeps? I get so excited when she mentions us! Melanie and I grew up together. She is the most fantastic person you will ever meet. It is perfect that as an adult she would put Sugardoodle together.
