a monday day date

For Martin Luther King Jr. Day this last week, neither the Fireman or i had school (he doesn't have school on Mondays anyways, but whatever). in honor of having a few spare moments where we didn't have to think about school or work we went on a Monday day date full of fun! The plan was to take the Frontrunner train from Provo to Ogden and back since the Fireman's favorite things in the entire whole wide world are trains.

To make the most of our time, we started early. We made the train in Provo right before 8 in the AM and made a stop in Orem for breakfast.

Our adventure included quite a bit of walking and meandering.

The train ride north was full of chatter, pictures, music, and Mad Libs. We're obviously just really hilarious. 

The adventure continued at Union Station in Ogden. The day really turned out to be quite the fantastic train date. The Fireman waltzed with me through the main room on our way to tour the train exhibit (the little old man at the information desk even clapped for us).

We decided on our way back south (as we munched on delicious Lunchables) that it would only make sense to play in Salt Lake for a wee smidge. We meandered through City Creek spending quite a bit of time at Deseret Book (i just love the book stores!).

By the time we headed back down to Provo for good, we were both exhausted and starving. Good thing we had Joe Bandido's planned for dinner because i don't know if anything would have sufficed. The chips and salsa are divine and make the trip to Springville worth it (unlike Guru's. i'm still peeved about that warm salsa the other day...)

As you can see, Monday day dates are really just fabbity-fab-fab and i can see many more coming. 

*Sidenote: after deleting the pictures on my computer they deleted from the blog...oh well.
