Salt Fall Lake Break

My Fall Break last year was lame. I sat around and cleaned the house. Bore and Snore me to death.
So this year I was at school and before school on Tuesday I decided I would do Priceline for a 4 star hotel for 50 bones in Salt Lake City for Wednesday Night.

Got it!! Little America.
Brad took a day off and I decided it would be a perfect Thursday in SLC.

We started off by visiting Bruges Waffles and Frites, Brad got the machine gun...something about it made me queasy. Maybe the lamb. That really bothered me.

I kept thinking about my Grandma's house how she had baby goats, I know that's different from lamb, but still, I got myself grossed out. Brad loved it, and the fries on top were delish.
Of course I got the waffle with creme and strawberries.
We have a fun time there. I like watching the birds eat the fries.
I then walked on the moon. It was memorable, but I wish I would have brought better shoes, because the rocks really hurt my feet. (Clark Planetarium)

Brad was a tad bit cold on the moon, but he did support Texas Rangers even in space. True dedication.
Then we skipped over to Mars.
It was bloomin hot.
Pretty sure between this picture and the moon picture, Brad wins: Most awkward poses awards.
The best part....was the landscape. I was wondering what landscape Martians would have if they visited a Planetarium, and stood for Earth pictures. . . Would they have mountains, ocean, desert, or tropical rain-forest. Surely it would be Idaho with sagebrush.
Something to think about.
You know the random person you ask to take a picture and you explain perfectly how to do it, and make sure this happens and don't do this, and go ahead. Then she takes it and its blurry and your nose is where your eye should be??? Well that is what happened, and she walked away before I could get another one. But what can you expect, she lived on the moon...She doesn't even know what a camera is. Let alone that there is another color besides gray.
I had never been to the Hogle Zoo, and we felt it was time. We needed this day to be jam packed.
I thought the little Elephants were so cute. 
After all, I do have 2 elephant necklaces.
The entire day I kept saying, "This day is so fun."
This was a 'fierce' kitty. It was the size of a little kitty, and just looked so sweet to me. 
As always, my favorite are the giraffes. 

I think we tried to get the tiger in the background.
Well we got a zoo tree, that's pretty awesome too.

Booradley has this think with Man vs. Food places. He goes to all of them whenever and wherever he can. Crown Burger is delish and artery clogging.
But so worth every clogging bite.
Our trip was a success!
I apologize for the long delay of posting, I had some delays.....

But, this trip was just a blast off.
Stay tuned for Halloween costumes that will rock your socks off.

Love the whole martian at a planetarium perspective.
