however, i did love their decor!
for those that don't know, i have a fascination with trains. i love them. i love that this used be a working train station and it's so easy for me to imagine travelers and the ticket booth and hustling about. it was really cool to stand in there and just imagine. it also was a wicked cool place for echos! :) we did a lot of yelling.
facebook page i get a pound of free candy. don't mind if i do! we got a pound of peanut brittle for kg. this was a really fun store. great mix of candy and toys. i love me a candy store! the girls each pushed around a child size cart and found a doll to put in the front. they were in heaven. santa got a few things for kg's stocking there, too, including a super cool battery operated spider! :)
when we got back to the hotel kg took the girls to the hot tub and i enjoyed some peace and quiet. when they got back the girls were in the bathtub and the news came on saying a huge snow storm was hitting utah between early morning and noon. right when we'd be traveling the the utah portion of the trip. we felt strongly that we should leave and not wait till morning. so by the time the girls were out and we were packed and loaded we drove out of salt lake about 11:30 pm. it had already started to snow and we had to drive fairly slow and followed a semi very closely and it hadn't even gotten 'bad' yet! made me very grateful we followed our gut! we got home at 3:45 am and went to bed! it was such a wonderful trip and time spent together. and lest you think everything was perfect...the girls each missed out on a hot tub visit due to poor choices. flower didn't get to go the first night and river didn't get to go the next afternoon. but for the most part they did great and we had fun!
