Lions, and Tigers and Bears... Oh no Just an Anniversary...

So you saw my post last week of us being married for 4 years. Well Chase happened to be in charge of our fun plans this year. The last time it was his turn we went to San Francisco. You can read all about it here.

This year he had a hard time coming up with stuff. We didn't want to spend a whole lot of money, and we couldn't go away for the weekend or anything because Chase had his work party the Friday before and he was moving into his new building the day after our anniversary.We decided to use our awesome groupons for fandango.com and went to see Harry Potter. I thought for sure there was going to be a line and that we'd be waiting for at least an hour. HA! No line.

Then after we went over to 5 guys in American Fork which just recently opened. Yum!

After eating we headed up to Salt Lake to go to the Hogel Zoo! I haven't been since I was 6 or 7. I remember going with my class when we lived up in Salt Lake. It was a lot of fun! We had train tickets, and were going to do that before we left. Well we get out from seeing the monkeys and it just starts pouring rain! We waited over an hour after that to be able to ride the train.

This bird (fake, really it was fake, can't you tell) Was just sitting there, maybe it was to scare the giraffes so they wouldn't leave, I don't know.

Bald Eagles- ever seen these in the wild?

They were also doing a thing called zoorassic park. Where they had a ton of animated dinosaurs. Some of them squirted water too

Cute little elephant named Zuri

All the kids loved this. It would start singing/blowing a tune then it would sneeze and then blow air out of it's trunk.

Once finished the train ride we left the zoo and drove to Buca di Beppo by the Rose Wagner Theatre. It was yummy! They serve dinner family style, like PF Changs. Our server was great! She was really funny. We will definitely be going back! Yum!
