- Had to be far enough away that the boys would ask, "How long until we get there?" at least once during the drive.
- Has to have a pool that looks fun and has a hot tub nearby.
I took the kids shopping until B got off work. We went to dinner at Cafe Rio and went swimming that night with our friends and their kids. The Bean is usually pretty leery of the water, but there was a rectangular not-hot hot tub (a not tub?) that had a bench all the way around it that she stood on. She paddled her arms and yelled, "I swimming!" at every poor soul who tried to join us. The boys, of course, did their best impressions of fish.

The next day we hit up Burger King for breakfast (one of the worst decisions we've ever made in our lives) and went to Main Street and looked at overpriced photography and museums, without purchasing either. Because seriously, I don't have $2,000 to spend on an 8x10.
After that adventure we headed up to the Olympic Park, where everything was too expensive. But you can pose with a torch for free!
|Yes, that is the "look what my parents make me do" look. Preteens are fun!|
|Yes, I really think she's got an Olympic future. Did you see that form?|
We then got smart and headed to the Alpine Slide at Park City Mountain Resort, where we found out we could go on a ski lift AND do the slide for less than the slide at Olympic Park. Score.

You'll be happy to know she survived.
|At the bottom, no other pictures of us on the slide ... argh!|
*Really, it was. We went home right after.
