Crazy Utah

Utah is a crazy state.  Period.  No one will convince me otherwise.  Here’s some places we visited that are just weird (but we love).

Smith & Edwards  You can buy yourself an idaho spud candy bar or a tank here.  Or, perhaps some giant cans of dehydrated food, or some cowboy boots.  The kids favorite was definitely the candy (stopped there to get some for Conner’s birthday cake).  I guess it was a surplus store gone bi-zerk.  Go figure.
Seagull Book and Tape.  Ok, the store itself just sells Mormon paraphanalia, and whoop-dog is it cheap.  BUT, there were a good 100 crickets outside of it.  I was entirely amused by that fact.  Some of my other Utah history fellows might remember the crickets and the seagulls story and also be amused.  BTW, they were gross, and I thought Spencer might die of stress while we walked there.
Red Iguana.  I swear this place is a new color every time we go, but boy oh boy do we love it.  We even made it TWICE this time.  Drew was in heaven.  A personal favoirte is the crazy motel next door with their garden gnomes.  Worth a visit, even Guy Fieri thought so. And yes, this is an amazing photo.

    LOL…crazy old Utah. Random side note. Back in the day when the pioneers came across the plains my great, great grandmother came and built a bakery when she arrived. The back of that building is the orignal building of her bakery..isn’t that cool? :)
    Glad you guys had fun!!
