City Creek, and Ryan's first BYU Game!

My sweet in-laws arrived in Utah 2 days after Christmas!
We took them to City Creek in SLC.
(beautiful new mall downtown Salt Lake City)

Nordstrom's sisterly love.

Ok I don't have a picture (wish I did)
But Ryan saw his first movie in the theater!
We saw Les Mis!
It was incredible. Totally recommend it.
Ryan did a lot better than I thought he would.
He was memorized by the big screen.

We then took Ryan to his first BYU (Brigham Young University) basketball game.
(It made me miss going to school here!)

My family are HUGE BYU fans.
I grew up going to every game and traveling to at least one away game if we could.
(This was the Notre Dame/ BYU football game)
So I'm glad Ryan finally got a taste of our love for BYU sports.

Although he was a little more interested in the water bottle than the game going on right in front of him.

The night ended perfectly when he met COSMO! The school mascot.
He was in heaven.
