Tourists in Utah

We've been here for almost a week and a half now, and its looking like its going to be at least a few more days, so we're making the best of it by getting out and doing some touristy things.

Yesterday we went to Trolley Square, which is a historic place that used to be a bunch of barns where they kept Salt Lake City's trolleys in the early 1900s, but when they stopped using them, it was just sitting there. Then in the 70's they started restoring the barns and turned them into stores. It was very cool, the walls between stores had old fashioned things and pictures and stories of when they used the trolleys. We ate a late lunch at The Old Spaghetti Factory (mmm!) and our waitress was really nice and recommended that we go visit Park City, which is a mining town turned ski resort town that was voted one of the 20 prettiest cities of 2008 by Forbes magazine, so we'll be checking that out sometime this weekend.

We walked around the stores, there was a Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, a Pottery Barn Kids, which I had never seen before except for catalogs, and some novelty type shops. There was a high end children's apparel store called Secret Garden, but a lot of the stuff wasn't even cute, and the only thing that would fit Vivi was a $45 onesie. So we just looked around :)
