Southern Utah Day 7.

*Day 7 - our final day in Southern Utah.
{Insert sad music.}

 We headed down the mountain back to Cedar City with a quick stop at one of our favorite greasy joints...



English Chips + fry sauce = the way to my heart.

* Afterwards we headed here....


The new Cedar City temple!

Ever since they announced that this temple would be built - I've been bursting with excitement to go inside!!

{My roots are in Cedar City.  My parents were born and raised here. We grew up spending summers here.  I went to college here.  Got my first radio DJ job here.  
So much goodness here!}



We were able to bring our ancestor's names with us and do a session inside.  It was just as I had imagined.

Beautiful. Peaceful. Perfect.




I love that my Grandma Misel always goes to the temple with me even though she's no longer alive.  That's her vintage suitcase that I take with me each time I go. 

{Side note to those who don't know: When you go inside of the temple, you change into all white clothing.  My all white clothing stays inside this suitcase.}

* Dinner afterwards at my FAVORITE restaurant in Cedar.


PIZZA FACTORY!


Their salad bar + breadsticks are THE BEST!

* A little shopping afterwards at a couple of local boutiques...


How much do you LOVE this quote??

Other funny finds...



* Drove by my dad's childhood house to finish off the day...


So many great memories inside of this home.
It will always hold a special place in my heart.

    1. Yes! That's my claim to fame is knowing YOU Claudine!!! Those breadsticks are my kids' FAVORITE!!! We didn't hit up the baptistry this time. I wasn't even thinking - - and didn't think to bring my boys with us to do some! Dad didn't go to the temple. His legs were too jumpy. And yes! We were hoping Quinn was working but he wasnt . So fun to see you guys and get together again! We love our Spevak Family!!!
