Aquarium, Fireworks and RSL, oh my!

This week has been so crazy busy so far! On Monday we took a mini-trip to the aquarium. I tried to take photos, but out of respect to others and the animals decided against it. Fishes don't need to be traumatized by flash photography! The living planet aquarium is amazing though! The volunteers were so educated and knew all about their animals. The penguins were my favorite, they slept for the most part, and we got to witness "bathtime". They swam all around in the water and shook their bums all over. So cute!
After the aquarium we went to Taylorsville city park. There they were closing Taylorsville Dayzz and hosting a concert from the Utah Symphony and the Utah Cannoneers. The music was awesome, the smells fantastic, and the fireworks were awesome! We even met Darrik, a good friend of ours there and had company to enjoy the show with. Nothing was better than lying down a big, old, ugly blanket, drinking out of water bottles and people watching in the park during sunset. The Utah Symphony played a variety of music that both Bubba and I enjoyed.
 First show of the year and it certainly didn't dissapoint!
Tuesday we went down to the "Fortress" Rio Tinto Stadium down in Sandy to watch a Gold Cup game, Real Salt Lake vs. Wilmington, NC (the Hammerheads) play. The tickets were cheap for midfield seats and we got to take the whole family (my parents, bro and one of his friends). We had lots of fun cheering, yelling, hollering at the refs, and listening to other hecklers! I posted all the photos from the game on my facebook page and am working on odds and ends for my photography page!
