Yesterday I was driving to the store and a house caught my eye. It was quite far away from where I was but VERY noticeable.
Bright COLOR everywhere… with awesome aqua trim.
I thought… I need to check that out. But continued on my way and forgot about it. Then later that night we were sitting around doing nothing important (so naturally I was perusing Facebook) and a post from the Herriman city page seemed to explain what the mystery aqua trim house was. My thought was...
So I grabbed the keys and forced my family in the car. They knew nothing… only we were going to go see something cool. And I was mentally crossing my fingers that it would be cool, because I hadn't actually seen it.
As we drove down the street towards the mystery house my husband stated…. "Wow, that's a colorful house." I replied "Now imagine thousands of balloons floating above it." He then exclaimed what I had earlier thought "No way!"
and we pulled up to see this….
Yep, its a full functioning exact replica of the house from UP. And it's about the cutest thing ever! A few other cars loaded with kids were also stopping in front of it. Everyones mouth agape. We got out of the car and peeked in the windows. It even has the hose in front and the fireplace mantle with the painting from the movie above it. So darling!
There was a nice lady out with her camera getting ready to take some photo's. We apologized for being in the way and she said she'd be happy to snap our photo. I thought she'd just use our camera phone, but she was nice enough to use her fancy camera and emailed us the photo's. So all credit of these photo's go to the sweet lady with the camera. Her name is Jenetta Roberts and here is her webpage! www.jeanettarobertsphotography.com
Thanks Jenetta! It was lovely to meet you!
(I do apologize for the messiness of my family in the photo's… we were not camera ready. In fact Momo has dinner on his face and sometimes I rebel against showering and make-up…and yesterday was one of those days. I'm just amazed we had shoes on).
So would you buy this house??? I kinda think I would. Especially if I was a grandma… how much fun for the grandkids, every trip to Grandpa and Grandma's would be magic, snipe hunting would be a must and I'd totally get a cane for J and attach tennis balls to the feet!
I just discovered who the builder of this home is. They have a blog with more pics! Check them out here….
