Any time we have any reason to head up to Salt Lake Valley, I do everything I can to see as many members of my family up there as I possibly can.
After lunch and a little bit of Pokemon catching we said goodbye.
Then we went up to Salt Lake City, and met Maryn at Liberty Park. She had a special friend with her… Alvaro Cruise. He is Maryn’s main squeeze. They dated years ago in San Diego.
They have recently started dating again.
He is still living in San Diego, but was visiting Maryn for the weekend in SLC.
Even though they have dated before, I had never met him! Which was odd because I knew so much about him because Maryn had told me so much over the years.
When we got there he was sitting at a park bench.
When I introduced myself we hugged.
We talked all about him. He was warm and kind and eager to tell me anything I wanted to know about him.
Mirah, ever the catalyst of action in my life, needed to go to the bathroom, so we went on a walk in search. We found one, and then ended up at the Ferris Wheel and other rides.
I got some tickets for the group, and Maryn, Cruise and Mirah were ready to ride!
These crazy and well trained kids running the rides were ready when we got there.
While this excitement was happening, Lucas and I were watching from below.
Mirah loved it. But I think that they were all ready to get off.
Maryn wanted to get on the swings.
The girl was so charmed by her excitement, that she gave her a free ticket. So we waited our turn.
The cute couple.
Then she was off!
Because she was totally sick when she got off.
Lucas enjoyed some popcorn too.
