This weekend I went to St. George with my parents. Aside from a great weekend of relaxation it was VERY successful. On our way down we stopped at Zion’s National Park. This is something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve lived in Utah all my life and really haven’t seen any touristy places. Now I can check Zion’s off of my list.
What’s that you ask? Did we go camping?
Well, I’m glad you asked. Absolutely not!  You know me better than that.
We took about an hour and a half bus tour of the park which was great! We saw people camping and hiking in the 110 degree weather and I simply cannot imagine what would motivate someone to do this! I know I didn’t appreciate the scenery and layers of rocks like some people I know, but I think I got a good sense of what Zion’s is all about. You can only take so many pictures of rocks, but here are a couple.

Once we got to St. George we checked into our hotel. It was amazing!

My dad received a tip about an “excellent” Mexican restaurant so off we went. In my opinion the food was less than mediocre and the music was just ridiculous. However, this totally made up for it. Forget fortune cookies! Introducing the Lucky Taco!

The next day my mom and I pretty much laid by the pool all morning. After we had lunch we went to the outlet mall. Talk about sales!! I am not a shopper at all, but the first store we went to Van Heuson had all of the types of clothes I love. The first item that caught my eye was a black trench coat. I’ve wanted one forever and here it was. Originally $170 on sale for $46!! I got 2 pairs of pants and 5 shirts. I couldn’t resist! Everything was so cheap! So I spent $170.66, but saved $337.53. I don’t think I’ve spent that much at one time on clothes. There was another sale at their sister store, IZOD so I went there and save another $90.

Best receipt of my life!
I’m not sure I want to make shopping like this a hobby, but I am definitely into amazing deal like these. This weekend was just chill and I had a great time exploring and hanging with my parents.
