Today’s the Day!

Today’s the Day!

We have to be in Utah by 1:00 to meet the movers that are unloading the U-Haul.  We also have a suburban to pick up from Enterprise in Orem.  We are on the road early.  We had a great stay at the Double Tree, the staff were super friendly and our room was comfortable and Jonas really enjoyed the saline pool.

We greet the sun at a scenic overlook in Utah. Jonas is a rock climber and a lizard finder and is grateful for an Outdoor Learning Center!

Utah!

Utah!

The movers were great!  Everything was unloaded, we had a suburban for the week and we got rid of the U-haul! It was time to visit the Great Salt Lake.

Jonas got this close and went yuck!

There is a layer of flies!

There is a layer of flies!

That’s exactly what he said before he ran back to play in the sand. We found out that they were brine flies and they don’t bother people.

We learned a lot about the lake and enjoyed watching the couple next to us open up their raft to go fishing.

It’s been a long day and we are getting hungry.  We have been hearing a lot about the Red Iguana in Salt Lake City and we are ready for some Mexican Food.  As a general rule we don’t eat a lot of Mexican food outside Texas because we are kind of snobby that way but if Julie is going to live in Utah we need to find some place that has good Mexican food! We beat the crowd and get a great waiter to help us with the menu.  He brings out a plate for us to try all the different Mole they offer.  This is what I have:

HUEVOS MOTULENOS

Our succulent pork carnitas smothered with our spicy mole Amarillo and melted jack cheese, topped with 2 poached eggs and 2 strips of crisp bacon, garnished in a crown of flour tortilla chips, served with a side of Spanish rice and refried beans.

There was so much of it that I really needed Bob to help eat it! I thought the food was delicious. Check it out if you are in town.

See ya!
