Going West

 After a fun weekend with friends and a week with my Colorado Springs relatives, I got on another plane and went farther west.  It was a lovely day for a flight over the Rocky Mountains.  I took a bunch of pictures out the window, trying different angles to get better pictures without glare, etc.

I was ready for a little snack when I arrived in Salt Lake City.  Auntie Anne's hit the spot!  I have loved big, soft pretzels since high school when our marching band went to New York City for the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and I got my first taste from a pretzel vendor in Battery Park.  Pretzels were always one of my favorite snacks, and the giant soft kind did not disappoint me!

My aunt took me to the Asian market because she wanted me to make a Japanese dinner.  I was so thrilled to find some of my favorite treats!  We had curry rice, which everyone seemed to really enjoy.  I loved it!  It was nice to get a taste of home.
We had a lovely meal in the backyard.  My aunt is a wonderful hostess.  My cousin and her boyfriend joined us after the baseball game where my cousin was heckled.  Oakland was playing Chicago.  She is a White Sox fan.  Enough said!

Enjoying the beautiful weather and yard.
Some Japanese snacks to go with dessert.
We took in an afternoon game on Sunday where we learned why my cousin was heckled.  She appears to be a quiet person as she sits knitting from her seat in the third balcony, but put her team up to bat, and there seems to be a different person with you!  It was fun, though!  Oakland has a player named Coco, so I took a picture of Flat Coco with the sign when Coco was up.

We went out for Burmese food with my cousin and her roommate.
Daphne taught me how to make jewelry
On Friday we took the bike trail into a cute little town for brunch.
It was much warmer than we had anticipated!
The dog tried to beat the heat by laying (lying?) on the cool tile floor in the kitchen!

Pictures from plane windows are some of my favorites! Good job catching such a good shot!
