"I think I'm goin' to the show!"

Last weekend,  Danielle and I went up to Park City with a couple of friends.  We had hoped to see famous people because the film festival was going on, but it turns out the only famous people we saw were ourselves (I mean, we were in a feature length film).

After we spent a quality amount of time looking for parking, we headed out to wander the streets.  We met up with Dillon's cousin for a couple of minutes as we awkwardly stood around his family's table in a crowded restaurant (I could tell the people who worked there loved us) and then we saw that directly across the street was the Family History Center!  How cool!  And what was even cooler was the fact that they showed free movies if we came and took a ride "in the past lane" (fairly confident that pun was intended).  

There was an adorable old lady who helped us start up the movie about families and Nauvoo.  As the first movie ended, me and Sean had the splendid opportunity to watch that adorable lady come RUNNING down the hall to bring us popcorn!  I mean, seriously, how cool is that?  She was running and she brought us popcorn! (which was actually pretty neat since we hadn't had lunch and Danielle and I had both conveniently forgotten our wallets...that's a true story.  I'm moderately embarrassed by that).

After the movie was over, we walked out of the room to find that there was a tree in the middle of the building that had some faces carved into it.  I think they wanted us to think that the faces were supposed to represent members of our family tree, but we knew it was really Grandmother Willow from Pocahontas.

We can't be fooled.

After that, we continued to wander the streets and my favorite place was this art exhibit that gave everyone free cider (I just remembered that I love free things) and we also met this random guy.  That guy came up to Sean and I and told us that "the lady told me to meet him here at 7" over and over and later told us that he was "thinkin' of going to the show!"  It was so weird.

Anyway, 'twas a successful outing completed with pizza (that Danielle and I didn't have to pay for because we forgot our wallets...seriously, I can't get over how classy we are) and a movie about a sunflower and a snow bunny...or something like that.  I wouldn't know, I fell asleep.

But who's surprised?

Your posts always make me smile:). Sounds like fun. Congrats on seeing "Grandmother Willow"--so great that you can see through the disguises of famous people/things to their true selves.... Good eye!
