Salt Lake City Mini-Trip (Part 1)

Austin had some old Netflix friends coming into Salt Lake that wanted to get together for dinner, so we decided to make a little trip out of it by staying in a hotel in Downtown Salt Lake and play tourists around the city. Maisie was thrilled to be staying in a hotel and swimming in the pool until midnight (bed time schedules are nixed on vacation right?) and it was just what we needed as a family, to get out of small town living, even just for two days and explore a new city.

Here are some pictures we took on our phones of our little getaway:

Daddy and his girls outside In-N-Out (of course that would be our first stop).

Did you know you can get animal house style fries... yeah don't knock it until you try it.

Sisters on a hotel bed.

Ellie getting ready to go swimming for the first time.

Both of these girls adore the water. Maisie had been begging to get goggles for the last couple months and we decided this would be a good time to indulge her. Also those puddle jumper things are awesome. Maisie is a little hesitant to "swim" AKA float without someone holding her even with a life vest, but with the puddle jumper she's a swimming champ. Swimming all over the pool by herself. She was so proud. Now she is actually excited for swim lessons this summer. Ellie loved being in the water. She would just smile and giggle while kicking her little legs and slapping the surface.

Watching the fountain show (made by the same people who created the Belagio's) in City Creek (an upscale shopping center- it felt like the Disneyland of shopping malls).

Untitled
City Creek has an actual creek that runs through it full of trout.

15 minutes into the car ride home both girls passed out and slept almost the entire drive.
