Another Busy Saturday

I’ve been looking forward to a Saturday where we just do nothing for close to a month now. I’ll be waiting another couple weeks as I tried my best to make this weekend about what Jami and the kids wanted to do since next weekend is the annual “man trip” for the Gunn boys. What the kids wanted to do involved going to the Animal Planet Expo at Liberty Park. I’d be lying if I said it was something I wanted to experience but we made it into a full day in Salt Lake and it ended up being a pretty fun day despite the heat and the crowds.

We left home a little before ten and stopped off at the Salt Lake Farmer’s Market with the mission to find the Bruges Waffles stand. I followed my instincts and we found it pretty quickly. If you remember, We spent a whole afternoon looking for what we thought was their retail location, only to find a warehouse so I was anxious to see if the belgian “zuiker waffles” lived up to my high expectations. Their small signs on the front of their little waffle cart showed just two options, plain and with chocolate but as I got to the front of the counter the person ahead of me was handed this beautiful waffle piled high with chocolate, berries and cream. I didn’t even think twice before saying, ” I want one of those.”

The kids liked the plain Gaufres best!

Needless to say it was delicious! It was fun to share an authentic treat from my mission with my family. After our quick stop at the Farmer’s Market it was off to Liberty Park for the Animal Planet Expo. It was really starting to heat up and when I got there it was not exactly what I was expecting. I thought we would have the chance to see some exotic animals, maybe an elephant or something, instead it was more like a really nice school carnival with blow up toys and carnival games. The lines were really long but the kids were totally into it so we stuck it out despite the heat. We waited in a few lines for the kids to spin a wheel and win a prize, go through the inflatable crocodile, and play a few carnival games. Abbi was incredibly lucky and won a couple extra things Caleb didn’t which caused a bit of fun family consternation. We stayed long enough to watch the dog and frisbee show and then we headed off to enjoy lunch at one of my favorite Salt Lake stops – L&L Hawaiian Drive In.

We ended the afternoon with all the boys getting haircuts at Aunt Amy’s Salon. as you can see Logan really needed one.
