MINI Vacation - Day 1 and Day 2

Sunday, March 21 and Monday, March 22

Not a lot of pictures to upload yet as the last two days have been alot of driving.  Actually about 1400 km in 2 days.

We left about 9:30 am on Sunday morning and made it into Butte, Montana by 6 pm.  It was a long day of driving as Hailey wouldn't really settle down so, I sat in the back with her for quite awhile and I ended up being the one that sleep. 

After, a long night in the hotel where the little one didn't really really want to sleep for long periods, we were up at 6 am and back on the road after a great breakfast at 7:30 am. 

We drove through the rest of Montana, breezed through Idaho, only stopping once for lunch at Denny's around noon and arrived in Salt Lake City at 3 pm.  Hailey was amazing today, she slept and just looked out the window most of the day.  About 4 pm, we took off to explore and went to the Gateway Shopping Centre.  Turns out that this was close to where the NBA Utah Jazz play and the centre was built for the 2002 Winter Olympics.  We had a great dinner at a Southwestern Grill.

It is now 9 pm, Hailey is asleep.  Both, Ian and I are also tired.  We have a bus trip tour of Salt Lake City tomorrow that will take us through the Mormom temple area and the State Capitol building.  So, I will have some pictures to post tomorrow.

We plan on staying in SLC until Wednesday morning then we will be off to the MINI rally in North Vegas.

I should really post a picture of our great little ride but, I am too lazy to pull out the camera cord. 

Good night from Utah!
