|In the car before we head on our adventure!|
So we dropped Rowan off at my parents early thursday morning, I skipped to the car yelling "I'm free i'm free!" and we hopped in and were off!
We stayed at the Sharaton in downtown SLC. It was pretty nice, the part we stayed in was older but re-modeled. We were super excited it had a pool and hot tub to relax in!
|In front of the beautiful temple doors|
Our first night we went on a date to the cheesecake Factory! Neither of us had been before. It was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! And fancy :) I got a cashew chicken dish over whole grain rice and Danny had a burger. Both were pretty fantastic! Then we split a slice of peanut butter cheesecake. How romaaaantic!
After relaxing in the hot tub and having fun in the pool I crashed for my first baby free night in a long while. It was nice and we missed our bubba. The next morning We went and did a live session in the Salt Lake Temple. WOW! It's so beautiful! It was amazing to see all of the detail and ornate craftsmanship that went into the rooms. Of course we took some pics :) Isn't my sweetie handsome?
After the temple friday morning and lunch in the temple cafeteria we went to Hogle Zoo. I had been wanting to visit the zoo with Danny for so long! I don't think he really got why I wanted to so bad... but its just fun! It was still pretty hot and luckily a friend of mine had lent us one of their special "Hogle Zoo" cups so we could get ice water from the restaurant in the zoo. Part of the park was under construction. They are adding an "African Safari" Part.
On our last day, Saturday we went to Lagoon. That morning we met up with my friend "Freaking Kim O'Barr " lol for breakfast, it was great to see her and she looked awesome, it had been like two years! We were roommies my freshman year. I was top of her list .. out of twelve roomies, listed from greatest to least liked, not something I recommend doing... :P
We met up with Danny's best friend Mikey, his sister Erin and his soon to be fiancé Teva at Lagoon. Don't mind the photo bomber in the background. lol
Lagoon was ok... the vey first few rides mad me sick and the heat made it worse, I felt bad I kinda ruined it for Danny, we left early... Sorry babe. :( He hadn't been and I have been a bunch of times. We went in September when Lagoon is only open on the weekends, it was CRAWLING with people by noon. We waited about an hour for one log ride! It was crazy. We were missing our little Rowan by then and even though we left early we didn't get home till around 11.
