IT'S FALL TIME!



FALL…BEAUTIFUL FALL

In conjunction with taking Elliott back to school, we traveled the extra four hours to Salt Lake to see our other dear daughter, Keira and boyfriend Nate.

GOOD EARTH…

While there, we ate at a favorite place of ours…Good Earth CafĂ©

It has organic vegetarian and vegan food that is absolutely YUMMY!



They used to have big pillows to sit on in one room…

A couch and chair in another…And fun things like that.

For some reason, they went to tables, which isn’t as fun…

But the food is still great!





I love that each room has a different theme…



I think that that was the whole concept in its conception…



Please excuse all the blurry pictures…

I still can’t seem to get this camera figured out…:/



It was little Adrien’s fourth birthday, so we celebrated with a vegan carrot cake…

I am not normally a carrot cake fan, but OH MY GOODNESS, was it good!

The neat thing about this place is that you pay what you feel that the food is worth…

And, at the end of the night, they set the left-overs outside for the homeless…Oh, I love things like that!



A THEATER TOUR…



Nate is a projectionist, so we were lucky enough to get the grand tour and presentation to boot!



Nate explaining a few things to Steve before we entered the projection room…



The room has to be hospital clean…



I was in a projection booth many many years ago…

It’s a tad different now…:)



School children come through for tours, so this worked out perfectly since we had some littles…



Julian especially liked it…



They still use 35 mm film on their non-digital machines, which really surprised me…



It’s not reel-to-reel, however, like it used to be…

They splice all of the reels together…



Onto big platters…



So, there is not interruption in the movie…

Their theater has digital machines currently but is going all digital in just a few months…



I didn’t know the difference until Nate had us look at a regular movie and then a digital…

The latter was a lot more clear, and the colors and picture were more crisp…



The view from above…



The little boys thought it was really neat…







Steve…



Elliott and Christian…



We all had a really fun time and learned a lot as well…

I hope you all have a blessed week~
