Maybe I should be ashamed to admit this. The theme to our vacation so far has been American Fast Food. Pretty much every day, and sometimes 3 times a day, we eat at a fast food place we don't have at home.
So far we still love Cafe Rio the best. We've eaten there 3 times already, and we're thinking today may be #4. We've perfected our order, which is now a pork burrito with black beans, no sauce. It's enough to feed all three of us. Financially responsible!
Cold Stone was pretty awesome, but we had no idea what was going on when the girl started squishing our ice cream on the counter. We just kind of.....stared. Now we're trying to decide if we like Cold Stone or Maggie Moo's better. (Better Batter Cake Carnival? Holy crap.) We've only been to each place twice, so perhaps it's too early to decide.
Sonic is adorable. It's like A&W from when I was little. We could go there every day for a lime slush and a cherry limeade. Last night Corina had a Pogo there, which you Americans call a corn dog. It was not really a Pogo at all though. That stuff on it was cake! How much sugar was in that? Corina couldn't even eat it, so it was Mommy to the rescue. I love hot dogs wrapped in cake.
Carl's Jr was kind of scary. We bought 2 burgers to split between the 3 of us, but we only ate a little more than one. Are there really people in this country who can eat those things? They were bigger than my head, and I have a very large head. A bobble head, even.
We're going to miss the fast food here. We're also going to miss all the weird people. We were chatting last night about how fun it is to people watch in Salt Lake. As Max put it, "All the people in Lethbridge are either like us, or they're drunk and lying on the ground." That makes for boring people watching, really. We went to a concert in the park last night, and the second most fun part of it was just looking at all the interesting people. We loved the dancing grandpa and the tie-dyed Jesus best of all. The most fun part was watching Corina dance. I wasn't the only one who thought she was awesome. She had quite a little following among the hippy-types. She kept whispering in my ear, "I'm making the people smile!"
Okay, we're never leaving.
