Oh it was heaven to have a holiday on Monday! Annie and Emily were flying home that night so we thought we would make a half-day of it and enjoy Salt Lake with them before dropping them off at the airport. Plus, we had to use my Benihana's birthday money!
I can't remember which beloved person told me first but I found out that Benihana offers $30 dollars for your birthday!! Because I am a sushi lover (and lover of free food) I got on their website, signed up and was counting down the days until we got to go. And let me tell you, it was goooood (more on that later) and totally worth the money.
But first...Emily had never been to Salt Lake before so we showed her the Visitor's Center and walked around the Salt Lake Temple. It was so fun to experience it with someone who was seeing it for the first time. And oh the temple was as beautiful as ever! There is this amazing calm and peace as you walk around the temple.
