No Stress Saturday!

*Don't judge me - I'm terrible at this whole picture layout thing... It would be a whole lot easier if it didn't change from the "compose" tab to the "preview" tab. Maybe I'm just clueless about what to do.*

This Saturday was wonderful! Jed woke up early and played frisbee (one of his passions in life) and I got to sleep in late (one of my passions in life). :) After we both got ready for the day, we did some errands and then headed north for our NO STRESS SATURDAY!!

I surprised Jed by taking him to The Living Planet Aquarium because he loves fish and aquariums and such. We had a great time! We saw tons of animals - we even saw a super active octopus that was really sweet. They have a tank right in the middle of the building that has fish and sting rays in it that you can just walk up and touch as much or as little as you'd like. Jed loved that. We also saw a really good show at the aquarium where they brought out birds, snakes, spiders, etc. It was really interesting and we both liked it a lot. We would definitely recommend The Living Planet Aquarium.

After the aquarium, Jed and I went up to SLC, grabbed a bite to eat, and headed to the Salt Lake City Public Library. Neither of us had been there before, though we'd driven by and always wanted to go inside - it's really a neat building with great architecture. We studied there for a little bit until we got kicked out (apparently they close at 6:00 on Saturdays) and then we walked around the grounds and looked at all of the neat things there.

We drove to the Conference Center and saw an incredible concert put on by the Utah Symphony and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, with solos by Denyce Graves (who we thought was WAY over the top) and Brian Stokes Mitchell (who we thought was an amazing performer with a fabulous voice). My co-worker, Laurie Bailey, is in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and she gave me the tickets. (Thanks Laurie!!) It was such a neat concert and it felt good to get out and do something nice and "adult" for a change. :)
