Today us east coasters (two current, one former) slept in and then headed to the hustle and bustle of Salt Lake City to get some brunch at Ruth’s Diner:
After eating a famous mile-high biscuit, we popped into This the Place state park and learned about Utah pioneer history (literally crying laughing right now that I took my friends from NY to This is the Place). THEY LOVED* IT (*not confirmed):
We learned about pioneers and Indians and how to make leather:
Then we popped into a saddlery to design our own leather and when I walked out and read the description plate I realized it was my great, great grandfather: Benjamin Franklin Johnson‘s saddlery! WHO KNEW?
Don’t you see the resemblance (I do, mainly in the facial hair thoughâ€¦)?
It twas a great time – before we could go on a train ride around the whole park, it was about to pour rain. So, we decided to pop into a movie and skip the storm. We saw Pitch Perfect 2 (hilar) and then grabbed some din at The Dodo (tollhouse pie, anyone?)
Love being able to spend time with these friends of mine. <3
