Day two

The second day we decided to explore. We had to take the kids to see the trains at the pioneer museum.

We decided we should probably represent and actually go inside the museum this time. Funny thing is me and Richard have actually been to it before. We weren't even married yet. Not much had changed except now they had this cool play room for the kids. Of coarse we spent most of our time in there.

It resembled an old school house, and had an old fashioned desk, stove, and toys. They all took a turn dressing up in the costumes. Tate enjoyed the marble shoot, and the big boys enjoyed the guns. To which we were nice parents and bought them each one afterwards.

After that I somehow talked my hubby into taking me to the Grand Canyon. I had never been, and it's on my list. You know the one of places I've never been but want to go. It was quite an experience, and drive. Especially since you pay $25 to get in, and we weren't even there for an hour. None the less it was beautiful! I would love to hike it someday. Kid free (or much older) of coarse. We then stopped at the Flinestone cafe. Quite the experience. I'll spare you the details, and just share pictures instead.

After naps we finally made it to Brandy's. Soooo yummy! Seriously, not even joking. **5*** for sure!
  • I had the ancho honey tilapia. With sundried tomato risotto. Something you should know about me is...when I go to a restaurant and I can order fish. I almost always will. It doesn't even matter that I don't really like sundried tomatoes or risotto. Which by the way was excellent. This is making me hungry!

  • Richard ordered the bistro beef tenderloin. Which is what Guy ate when he was there.

  • For appetizer we ordered the corn & shrimp fritters. It came with coleslaw. Which I am a super huge fan of. When it's done right, and it was. So yummy! This is making me so hungry!

  • The kids went out on a limb and ordered grilled cheese sandwiches.

  • We also took a huge cinnamon roll, and brownie back to the room with us. I'm sure I don't have to tell you what we did after that.

Oh yeah, there is still one more day!
