Thursday morning we packed up overnight stuff and drove up to Centerville. I had a voice lesson with Katie Hill, a teacher I studied with nine years ago. I'll write the details of my lesson in my music blog. The kids and Rob played at the park during my lesson.
After the lesson we had luch at Carl's Jr. The kids played in the indoor playground for an hour or so and then we loaded up to head for the Utah Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City. Every time we go back to Salt Lake we drive by all the important places, Temple Square, Salt Lake Regional Medical Center where Kyle was born, Questar where Rob worked as a law student, the University of Utah where Rob graduated from Law School, and of course, our University Village (East) where we lived happily for two years when Sam and Ben were little. The zoo is just up the street. We used to walk there.
Kyle will want to remember his favorite monkey that the kids named Dexter. He made faces with them for ten minutes or more. Kyle tells me often how much he would love a pet monkey.
In the evening we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house for pizza. Caitlin played with her cousin Mylee, the big girls went to Aunt Judy's house to spend the night with thier cousin Julia, the boys camped out in a tent in Grandma and Grandpa's backyard.
