Ratatouille Pizza

Yesterday afternoon we went to the book sale at the Salt Lake City Library for Family Home Evening. You know I can't resist cheap books. The hardcover books were 50 cents and the paperback books were 25 cents. We bought two boxes full.

The kids enjoyed riding on the glass elevator.

Afterward we walked around Temple Square and enjoyed the beautiful tulips, flowering trees and the peaceful spirit. Amberly kept pointing out, ". . . that would make the perfect picture if only you'd brought your camera." I love taking pictures (obviously) and I especially enjoy taking pictures at Temple Square but I must admit that it was nice enjoying the flowers without a camera. I wasn't constantly trying to convince my kids to pose for another picture.

On our way home we decided to stop and get pizza for dinner. It was already late. While we were ordering our usual stack of Hot n' Readys at the drive-up, we noticed that the back door of the restaurant was propped open and a rat ran out. Seriously. A rat.

When we got up to the window to retrieve our pizzas, I leaned across my husband and told the teenage girl that we had just seen a rat run out of the back of the restaurant. "Oh, gross!" She cried. She yelled to her fellow employees to shut the back door and then turning to us she said, "We have had so many rats and I keep telling the guys to keep the door closed. Rats completely gross me out." Me too.

But we still ate our pizza.

That is so funny! And I completely get what you're saying about sometimes it's nice to leave the camera at home. Sometimes it gets in the way of just being in the moment.
