After the swim at the Inn, we took a tour of Orem and Provo. It was snowing, and we saw the lake but were not inclined to alight from the car. No pictures. :-(

We also shopped a bit at dressbarn first, where a lot of brand names and good quality stuff are sold at low prices. Bought some tuxedo suits for the kids, very cheap. Dh bought a trench coat, and a ski jacket. I bought a ski jacket too. Columbia was the only brand that had S size, and the only piece in S size was bright pink. It made me look like a little girl, but I tried on the nice blue M size one, and it really was too bulky and large, so had to settle for the pink one.

Had lunch at Applebees, then continued the tour. This time, it was to see Brigham Young University. We knew that we cannot come to Utah, stay and then return without seeing the music dept at BYU. BYU has a very good music program.

But dh was most excited more because of their museum. Ok, BYU has many museums, mostly free admission, like a Life Science Museum, too. But both kids were napping in the car by the time we reached BYU, so we decided to let dh enjoy the music museum alone. I stayed in the car with the kids. Not unwillingly too, cos I brought a book along to read and rarely had such a luxury, to read in peace and quiet without interruption. (recently bought a couple of Newbery award winning books from Amazon)

Dh came back in about an hour, all aglow with praise and wonderment. These are the pics he took.

BYU library:
BYU carpark where I was waiting. It was all snowed over, and no one could see where the road ended or kerb started. Someone tripped over it while I was waiting in the car, so that's how I noticed, and took a pic. Perils of snow and ice. And oh yes, I once drove to the supermarket, and if there were cars there, it was not too bad, cos you just try to park beside another car and hope you are within the lot. But if there aren't any cars, I had to wonder where the parking lots are.


BYU courtyard:
The famous musician and violist William Primrose resided at BYU during the last part of his life. Dh was thrilled to see the huge collection of valuable violas owned and played by William Primrose himself. He even wrote in the museum guestbook: "I'm from Singapore and seeing this collection is a violist's dream come true!".



Good for him. Dreams fulfilled. So we headed back home after that.
