Monday was really a perfect day.
Probably because Peanut slept in until 8:45…but the rest of the days activities were pretty great too.
We spent the morning at the Living Planet Aquarium in Salt Lake, where Peanut found Nemo, Philip touched a stingray, and I freaked out about a large shark and the glow in the dark scorpions. After an hour and a half there, we grabbed some lunch at Zupas (tomato basil soup and a turkey spinach-artichoke panini for me — amazing). Although Peanut wasn’t too interested in sharing our food, he was very interested in biting all the chocolate off of our chocolate covered strawberries. After lunch, we browsed a few stores and tested out a few mattresses (we’re in the market), and tried to figure out how anyone ever chooses a mattress (they’re either way too soft, way too hard, or way too expensive)!
After Peanut’s afternoon nap and a delicious hamburger dinner, we went for a beautiful walk through the cemetery down the street. It was overflowing with flowers and looked gorgeous. Then we came home and made this amazing strawberry ice cream, as it was high time we got our ice cream maker working for the summer.
Like I said, a perfect Memorial day, and a perfect way to jump start the summer.
