Our Trip to Heber Valley
As many of you know, Thomas and I were going through some rocky times and decided to separate. I don't think there are words to describe my happiness now as we are a complete family once again. For our Anniversary this year, Thomas took me to the Zermat in Midway where we enjoyed swimming in the "crater" - a cave with a deep natural spring inside. The water was warm and clear. Scuba diving classes were being held while we swam around and enjoyed the warm water.
We ate probably 4 gelattos between the two of us (o: and the BEST brick oven pizza we have EVER encountered at a small place in Midway. We ate alot of amazing food and enjoyed resting by the fire in our suite. We really had a wonderful time.
The view out the window in our suite was like a dream (for me anyway :) - there was a field with cows and an old house that the cows frequented while we were there. The house even had it's beam for tieing up your horse still. I LOVE old buildings. It was just begining to snow and the stream that cut through the field steamed a little. The Mountains were beautiful behind it all. It was like looking at a live painting. I enjoyed sitting out on my balcony in the crisp cold air watching the cows and the snow. I felt so spoiled!
On our last night there, we boarded the Heber Valley Railroad to enjoy their Comedy Murder Mystery. It was fun, the food was good and it was COLD! The heaters didn't put off much heat. Right before the 3rd act, the train broke down. Yes, it's true. The heaters stopped working when we broke down (of course) so we all ended up piling into one car. We were practically on eachothers laps for an hour until a new engine came for us. We were only about 3 miles from the station, so nobody was particularly worried except maybe the actors (o: They seemed to take it the hardest. We really had a good time. Who can say they broke down on a 1930's train during a murder mystery? How cool is that?....literally...
On Sunday, we attended a local ward and enjoyed driving around Midway and Heber. What a dreamy place to live!
