Hawaii or Utah? What would you do?

So, we were all set to go to Utah next week for a little family vacation. Blaine took time off from work and he has a week off in between semesters from school and we just needed to GO SOMEWHERE...ANYWHERE. Well, we've got lots of family and good friends in Utah, not to mention Cafe Rio and The Pie Pizzeria so it is always a good time for us to go there and visit. Besides, it is a do-able drive so it just made sense. Until we were talking to Blaine's brother, Steve, who is a pilot. They were telling us about their recent Hawaii trip and how great it was. We were ooing and awing about it when they said that if we wanted, we could use some buddy passes to go out there ourselves. Hmmm, we thought. We do already have the week off next week since we were going to Utah. What the heck...let's go to Hawaii instead! So, to all of our family and friends in Utah that we had planned on visiting, we're sorry. But, you don't blame us right? I mean, come on, when paradise calls, you have no choice but to answer. And we feel good about doing our part to stimulate the economy. Hey people, we're just trying to help out!

I don't blame you.... I would have made the same choice. I hope this doesn't mean that Utah is completely out of the picture this year. We are always ready for a visit. Oh..and have a matsamoto (sp?) for me!

Are you kidding??? Paradise or Utah??? Although I am little sad because I really wanted to squish those kids of yours. Maybe I will just have to see about visiting Colorado. You guys have FUUUNNNN!! And that really is funny about The Pie commenting. How did they find your post??? I'm confused....That is great though.
