Week o' Vacationing 2009: Day 5

Day 5 of my week of vacations was our 2nd full day in Park City, and we started it out with some omelets and "clouds" courtesy of George and Kimi. After breakfast, we left grandpa with the grandkids and it was off to the outlet stores to do some shopping. I had a few things in mind to look for and was semi-successful in finding them: a new belt to hold up my church pants -- not everything about weight loss is wonderful, couple of polo shirts to wear to work, now that it's kinda hot to wear long sleeves every day. Couldn't find sunglasses at a reasonable price, i.e. anything under $60, or some sleeveless cotton T-shirts. Apparently cotton is out, and magical fibers that obliterate moisture are in. I thought cotton was the fabric of our lives. What happened? Anyway, I've since remedied those short-comings with the help of the internet ($14 sunglasses) and Target (T-shirts for $3.99).

After shopping, we swung by Arby's drive-through for lunch, then back to the condo to trade mom for dad. We then went to check out the latest installment of the Harry Potter series - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Not having read the book in over 2 years made this one infinitely more enjoyable than the 5th movie which I saw with the book fresh in my mind. So much gets cut from the books to fit into a 2 hour movie. The more I think about the new movie the more I remember that was omitted, but at the time I found it to be fairly enjoyable.

After the movie, we headed back to the condo. Ben and Natalie were headed out to Grantsville for 24th of July rehearsal practice, so pizza was ordered for them and then they hit the road. The rest of us wanted a nicer dinner, so we ended up at Red Rock Brewing Company, where we had a pretty delicious meal. I got the Kobe Burger (named for the beef, not the player) which I thought was particularly tasty.

After dinner, we headed back to the condo again, and played several rounds of Perudo (a type of liars dice game, perhaps similar to what was in the 2nd Pirates of the Caribbean film, but I'm not sure because I only saw that once and was utterly confused at the time by what was going on). I can't remember who won all the games, but I know my mom and I never won. I finished in the top 3 once or twice.

After games, it was off to bed.
