We went to Salt Lake this last weekend. It was a gorgeous weekend, and just perfect for a late summer fishing trip. Chris, his dad, and Thomas went to Silver Lake, near the Brighton ski resort in Little Cottonwood Canyon, on Saturday morning. They were only there for a few hours and managed to catch 10 trout! Tom did a great job reeling in the line and using the net to catch the fish, and we all enjoyed a delicious fresh fish lunch.
During the fishing trip, Marilyn, Gordon and I went to Ikea. I had never been to Ikea before, and to say I was kind of overwhelmed is an understatement. I still can't believe how huge the store is! It was really fun, though, and we got all sorts of fun stuff. The best is that the boys' new downstairs room is now organized, and without my having to purchase a huge new dresser! YAY! Anyway, I had to post about Ikea because if you haven't been there, you really should go-- fun, fun, fun!
In addition to Ikea, Marilyn and I also did some more shopping after lunch-- some new clothes for my ever-growing second grader, a few killer adorable things for the baby, and the cutest material for the quilt Marilyn is making. It's going to be so darling-- I'll definitely take some pictures to share!
Back at home, life has just been busy, but mostly fun. Lately Gordon has been really into "reading" this ridiculous Oriental Trading Company catalog we received in the mail. He carries it around with him everywhere, and we've had to tape it up more than a couple of times. For a while, he was referring to it as "my Halloween Book", but in the past couple of days, this has shortened to "my Hallo". "Mom, where's my Hallo?" Maybe he's a marketing guru in the making?
