Utah is freakin hot.
Our summer vacation is officially over. The girls summer camp is over, Alyssa goes back to school for a remaining 4 weeks and Emma starts pre-school. I start my job tomorrow and we all get a little serious. We decided to end our summer by taking a trip to Utah to see a play. Mom, the girls and me. We drove up to St. George, Utah to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat at Tuacahn. The drive is only an hour and a half. It is 115 in Vegas but it is 120 in St. George. 120 degrees! Go put your oven on 120 and put your head in for a second. That is how hot it is. The first night was fun although I had a cold. We went swimming and just kind of chilled out. The second day we went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the morning and in the afternoon the electricity went out. ALL OVER ST. GEORGE. The entire city. That means no air conditioning, no restaurants, nothing. All we could do was drive around for an hour. At least the car was air-conditioned. We drove up to Tuacahn, where the play was and they told us that the show would not be canceled until 8:30 when the play starts. So we would have to come back to see if it was going to go on. We found out that there was huge fire in the hills and it knocked out a transformer. Finally the power came back on and we resumed our trip. However the power did not go on in Tuacahn so the play was canceled. The whole reason for us to go and it was canceled. We got our tickets back and we will try it again in September when the temperature is a little cooler. I start my new job tomorrow and I am excited but very nervous. PICTURES ARE HERE
