My dad turned 70 last week! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! I flew to Utah to celebrate with him and my family. We had an adults-only dinner (sorry nieces and nephews – we DO love you!) at a Brazilian steakhouse in Salt Lake City.
I’m not much of a meat eater, but an unlimited meat-eating restaurant is perfect for my five carnivorous brothers and my dad. Plus there was a decent salad bar to appease my mom, me and my sister-in-laws. I did try some of the meat and it was pretty good. But the best part of the evening was my dad’s birthday dance.
Shake it Dad! 😉
10 Other Great Things About My Trip
2. I got to hang out with Janetha from Meals & Moves. I just love her. Seriously.
Yes, Nicole and Janie, we ate at Pago – good eye(s)! And it was amazing.
3. I got shellacked with this freaking awesome girl. (More details soon!)
4. I ventured into the jeggings world and bought my first pair. Black jeggings, no less.
5. I ate Café Rio. (Meghan, I had a pork barbacoa salad with black beans and creamy tomatillo dressing. And I dedicated it to you. P.S. Update your blog. ;))
6. I admired my dad’s garden (hubbard squash, tomatoes, swiss chard, red leaf lettuce, corn, potatoes, peppers, and more).
7. I was reminded how amazing the clouds are in Utah. I learned in a geology class in college that Utah gets huge puffy clouds because of the way they form behind the mountains and get pushed up the back of them. (See, random knowledge from required courses applies to daily life. Still waiting for calculus to come in handy.)
8. There was an incredible thunder storm. A couple actually. I swear the thunder is louder in Utah than in NC. And I love that I could see the lightning spread across the whole, open Salt Lake Valley sky instead of being hidden by tree.
9. I went camping. And it was luxurious camping where everything was provided for me – food, sleeping bag, camping trailer, and kiddie entertainment. Thanks Jack & Des!
Tell me about your family. How many siblings do you have? I have five older brothers, 4 sister-in-laws, and 13 nieces and nephews…I think. 😉
