Mormons!!!! there everywhere!!!
May 11, 2005
We arrived in SLC about 7 hours after leaving snowy CO. We stayed in Launi & Pauly's new house with their 2 dogs and 1 crazy kitty. At sunset we went up to Ensign Peak & gazed over the darkening city. It was so pretty!!! SLC is huge including the burbs, it seems to sprawl further than the eye can see, but it's such a quiet city. The next day we got a lovely and informative tour of the city. Ben loved going to the Mormon info centre and even went back by himself later - I think the pretty Morman girls (tour guides) had him hooked or it could have been the really big statue of Jesus in the room eerily painted like the universe....Anyway, that night we found a sports bar (basketball) and Christie and Clark came from Park City to meet us. Tara and I met them during the Winter Olympics when we sold pins out their jewelry store. Chris Gentzkow and Ann also showed up a bit later and we had a full on rockin party! It was great catching up with everyone. The next night we stayed in Gentzkow's new house which he's doing up himself and went to a sports bar again to watch the Sonics kick some more ass!
