I've written before how one of the things I miss most about living in Southern California are certain restaurants they have there ... well Utah is finally getting on board the In n Out bandwagon ... last week I was ecstatic to hear they are planning on opening a Draper, Utah location (by VF Factory Outlet for you locals). This was AWESOME news because we are huge In n Out fans - in California we never lived further than a few miles drive from one and it was a weekly (or sometimes daily) lunch or dinner for us.
Mason spent many trips there as a baby where he couldn't do anything but munch on a few cheerios and wish longingly for the day when he could get his own Double Double:
No trip to the beach was complete without stopping for some french fries and a chocolate shake on the way home:
And even on Mason's first birthday - he and I celebrated with a trip, just the two of us, to In n Out in Laguna Niguel where he got his very first own meal - a grilled cheese - just for him!
Well today I read that they are also planning on opening a West Valley location (by Valley Fair mall) and a West Jordan location (by the Target in Jordan Landing!). The latter is only a few miles away - certainly close enough for weekly visits!
You do not know how happy this makes me - a little something to make me feel back in California - even though next winter we'll be eating our regular meal with snow falling outside - instead of on the way home from Disneyland, which will be a little weird. But yummy!
