We ended our trip to Salt Lake with dinner at a wonderful little restaurant and a walk around Liberty Park. The Park was wonderful, and really can't believe places like this exist compared to the parks here in Arizona. The trees, landscape, weather.... everything was just amazing. Probably one of our favorite trips as a Mr. and Mrs. so far :)

Scott and Dre's wedding was so gorgeous! Dre had let me help in making some of her decorations, so it was great to see everything come together. Their venue was actually the top level of a hospital, and it had amazing views...
LOVED her cake... I couldn't stop taking pictures of it.
Before the wedding... Chris had to make sure Scott looked his BEST...
And what do you do when you can't find a clutch you like? You make one :)
This was their ring bearer... Quick cute story... To entice him to go to down the aisle down to the front, Scott was holding a toy truck... and their little ring bearer sprinted like there was no tomorrow :)
The wedding was great, and it's always so much fun to meet your friends family. We couldn't be happier for Scott and Dre, and the more we hang out with them, the more we see how perfect they are for each other. This was also the first wedding Chris and I had ever been to together and we both had fun reminiscing about our own newlywed days... How time flies!!
Before Scott and Dre's wedding, we basically had the whole morning to go around and explore.. so with some friends, we traveled (in our rented black mustang :) ) Park City. I didn't really know what to expect, as neither Chris or I had ever been there before. It was absolutely beautiful! I'm sure its gorgeous during the winter, but we absolutely loved the summer scenery... especially since it was mid July and the temperatures weren't even close to the ones we were already experiencing back home.
We took a ski lift all the way to the top of the mountain which is where we saw some of the prettiest views.
Once we arrived back at the base of the mountain, we got in a little bit of shopping. My Mr. Schulman was beyond excited when he found this sign...
We also ate pizza at one of the local restaurants, and they would have totally put the song "99 bottles of beer on the wall" to shame!
We absolutely can not wait to go back here!

In June, we were able to travel to Salt Lake city to be able to see our good friends Scott and Dre get married! It was a nice short plane ride, and the first thing on our to do list was to visit The Crown Burger. At the time, Chris was obsessed with a show called Man vs. Food. It's basically a ridiculous show where a guys tries to eat obscene amounts of food at different restaurants. Chris had just happened to see the "Salt Lake City" version of the show right before we left and insisted that we eat there as soon as we landed. So we did ... and he loved it :)
Afterwards, we of course had to visit was SLC is known for, Temple Square. It was absolutely amazing, and grounds were immaculate.
The grounds certainly provided for some great picture taking opportunities :)
I was obsessed with this statue... It's a statue of Joseph Smith, but if I were to personify Mr. Bingley (my car), this is exactly what I know he would look like.
I'm so glad his wardrobe matched my purse this day :)
There were carriage rides all over the place. This one was my favorite... Not only because his name was Ed, but because he was sporting a sweet cowboy hat!!
It was a great first day to start our vacation!
