The hotel (guess which one we stayed at) let us stay in the room until 1:30, which was nice, since GB was still at the conference. We slept until almost noon. Well, the Caboose slept til 1. I guess I slept til 11:30 or so.
(Wow. I hardly used my cute little pink Canon until after my Oly broke. Most of my photos are on the Oly or my phone. I miss my Oly. A lot.)
After we checked out of the hotel , we headed off to find the nearest Steak and Shake. Why oh why can't they come here to Yew-taugh? I tried a Wisconsin Buttery steakburger without the onions, of course. I don't think I'm ever going to like Yew-taugh burgers again....
We had time to waste at that point and discovered the airport overlook so we wasted time watching planes land and take off. Salt Lake International doesn't appear to have a similar parking lot. Bummer. I could watch planes land and take off for hours.
Heh heh, I actually did...

on my Oly. I'm gonna miss it.
We returned the car and headed to the airport. While we were waiting to board, the Caboose dropped his phone and shattered the screen. Great. Just great. We're two months from when he can get a new one... Ah well. We can deal with it. Just no texting. It was a "brick" (the same one he threw at me) because I'm not ready to give him a smartphone yet.

It still had the new car smell, even.
I chose it because it's similar to the Camry.
Never one to pass up a back up camera!
But I did find this shirt. It was in a youth size otherwise I totally would have bought it. I posted a photo of it on Instagram/FB bemoaning the fact it was too small for me and a friend suggested I buy it anyway and applique it onto a shirt more my size. Sadly, I didn't see the post until I was home--the fourth time through BWI in nine days. I so could have done that. Then I would have had this awesome shirt. I'm not sure why Snoopy was so big in Baltimore. I saw hats, other t-shirts, mugs, and that huge stuffed Snoopy... Weird.
We rented a Dodge Caravan this time around. I haven't driven one of those since I got the Pacifica--seven years? It took a while to get it because there were a lot of people in line and while waiting, poor GB had to deal with a very sad guy at the car rental place. He'd left his phone on the plane and borrowed GB's. When he called his dad to let him know, his dad yelled at him and then hung up without him being able to tell his dad what had happened. How awful is that? I cried for him, I felt so bad.
Headed back to Gainesville but stopped at the Washington DC temple to see if I could get some photos. The lights go off at 11 pm... Drove up to the gate, turned around and just like that, Moroni was dark. So bummed. Very bummed. I did get one photo from the Beltway, though. Blurry. But it was pretty cool. I promised myself I was going to do my best to get back when it was lit.... Did I do it? You'll have to check back to see. *smile*
