A few months ago, my cousin Mackenzie casually mentioned that it would be fun if Sydney and I could come to Utah to watch her dance. (She dances for the Utah Blaze, Salt Lake’s arena football team). I didn’t think it would happen but mentioned it to Garth and he informed me that we had enough miles to fly free and that I should go!
We hopped on the plane early Friday morning and headed to SLC with a very full itinerary!
We had a quick visit for lunch with my cousin Amber and her boys Jaxon and Dylan.Then over to Westgate Mall to meet up with Mackenzie shortly before she had to work. The girls took the chance to cool off in the fountains.
After a long day of fun, we ended up at Shelley Liljenquist’s house (she’s Natalie’s mom and my old cheerleading coach) where we would spend the night. Sydney was thrilled that we were staying in the room of one of the Pink Stillettos and better yet, that her closet was full of costumes! Needless to say there was a fashion show!
Day two was spent mostly with cousin Mackenzie. She picked us up and we got pedicures (Sydney’s first ever).
Then lunch, some more shopping, and finally the game!
It was so fun to watch Kenzie dance and we had a special surprise that my Uncle Matt danced with her at half-time (all the dads came for father’s day and did a performance with their daughters).It was mascot night or something. All the mascots from local teams were there, this is the Hawk from Utah State.
Syd felt like a celebrity after the game. Kenzie got us down on the field and she introduced us to the dancers, Syd got to congratulate the players as they ran off the field, then she got to run and dance on the actual field!
