Tonight it was back to being nice - so Marc and I decided to take Grahm on a walk in our neighborhood to get some dinner and take a walk around the lake. Mason was getting to spend the night up at my parents house - he loves to "camp out" in their motorhome in the driveway!
We walked over to Wabi Sabi first since we were starving. Marc & I both love sushi but we weren't sure what to expect taking Grahm there. We got a few rolls & then decided we better get something kid-safe so got some Udon noodles with chicken and veggies. This kid. He grabbed at the rolls the second they were set down on our table & proceeded to chow down on my tempura shrimp, avocado and lemon roll. Maybe it was the bright orange caviar that was on top? It was hilarious - our waiter was cracking up, he said he had never seen a kid as young as Grahm gobbling up sushi like that.
He did end up eating some noodles too & wanted his own little bowl of soy sauce to dip them in just like us.
When we left the restaurant the boys walked over to the swings & I ran into the bakery next door to get a mint brownie for me and a peanut butter rice krispie treat for Marc. So delicious. :]
Grahm was loving the swings and I had to join in with him - what is it about swinging on a warm summer night that just makes you feel so carefree?
Then we walked over to the lake to burn off some of those calories from dinner - such a nice night! There were so many people out biking, kayaking, running, canoeing, fishing, walking, chatting ... a couple was there taking their engagement pictures ... little kids were out riding their bikes with training wheels ... I seriously felt like I was walking around in Pleasantville. Or a real-life commercial for our neighborhood, which, incidentally, was pretty true to life tonight:
How can you not be a little happier when you look around and are surrounded by this beautiful view?
One thing's for sure, summertime in Utah is just the best! This is going to be a great one!
P.S. See that awesome hat I'm sporting in the picture up there? It's my official Salt Lake City Summer Crew hat! A small group of local bloggers was chosen by the Visit Salt Lake Convention & Visitors Bureau to do fun activities this summer and blog, Facebook, & tweet about them and I was lucky enough to be included. I was already a huge enthusiast about Salt Lake City and now you're going to hear about it even more. :] Learn more about the Summer Crew, meet my fellow crew members, and see my little bio & picture at our Facebook page here.
