Any how, by the time we were done, I was kind of paraded out, so the next morning we slept in and were lazy, and we missed the big Salt Lake Parade, which is what we had planned on doing. Then I felt like a bum for a while, we laid around some more, called out to Cedar Fort, and found out there was not much going on out there. Dan had to work, so it was just me and the kids and finally we headed out to see what kind of adventure we could drum up.
We stopped at the park in Bountiful and watched a wild shootout. We stood in line for snow cones and cotton candy, and made a pioneer doll named Matilda, after our very own pioneer ancestor.
Then we headed out to Woody's for lunch. Woody's is around the corner from my mom and dad's house and was the local hangout for me and my friends, back in the day when all our quarters got pumped into the Pacman and Donkey Kong machines. Now they have a jukebox, so we pumped some quarters in there and listened to the Beatles, Beach Boys, and Elton John.
Attempted some selfies...
and finished off the day by going to see Spiderman II at the dollar movies. Only it was too scary for Olivia, so half way through she and I snuck out of that movie and into the Heaven is for Real movie
Next year, I am vowing that we are going to go downtown and camp out with all the other crazy parade goers. We are going to get us a spot in the shade, pitch our tent and stay up all night. Then, after the parade, we will come home, take a long nap and get up just in time for fireworks.
