Drama Queen and the drama of getting to Cedar City

On Monday, we caravanned with Drama Queen to get her and the furniture she wanted in her apartment to Cedar City.

After getting her car packed, and with Mr. Perfect behind her wheel to make it through the construction in Utah County (ick), we headed south...and made it to the Bangerter Highway exit. Drama Queen's car was overheating. We'd put a half a gallon of anti-freeze/coolant in it before leaving, but it wasn't working. Mr. Perfect was concerned that it was the thermostat, and knew that if it was, we wouldn't make it the 250 miles to Cedar City. Once we were off the freeway, we made our way to the closest Grease Monkey.

And were amazed to find one of our nephews (The Jeradite King) behind the counter. We knew that he worked at a Grease Monkey, but we didn't remember which one. Now we know. Seventy-five minutes later, we were back on the road with a brand-spanking-new thermostat in the car, but Drama Queen and Game Boy had some fun sibling time in the lobby.

The rest of the drive down was uneventful. Drama Queen and Mr. Perfect switched places behind the wheel in Nephi (and Mr. Perfect and Game Boy switched places in cars [more fun sibling time for them and quiet couple time for us]). Mr. Perfect was able to catch some much needed sleep while I drove. Once in Cedar City, we ate (oh-so-yummy pizza at Centro Woodfired Pizzeria) and then found Drama Queen's home for the next nine months.

What cute bedding!

We made it home just after 10:00 pm, which isn't bad considering we left Salt Lake valley four hours after when we had planned on leaving.

Have a great time at SUU, Drama Queen! We miss you already, but know you will have great experiences!
