Utah Reunion Part 3: Food, Glorious Food!

A lot of the reunion we spent at the rental house, just hanging out, playing Wii (especially American Idol tournaments!), playing volleyball in the backyard or just talking. But at least some of the trip had to revolve around food. We went to Bombay House for dinner after graduation. I haven't had Indian food in so long. Yum!! I actually got Jared and Camryn to try Indian food by bribing them with promises of a slurpie afterward (Jared loved garlic Naan bread-- and tolerated everything else.)

These pictures are from our trip to Tucanos Brazilian Grill (all-you-can-eat-skewers of fantastic grilled meat, pineapple and veggies... yum!). It was two days before mom's birthday, so she had to submit to being sung to with the tambourine and everything.

Jared is a big fan of steak and loves Tucanos. Camryn (although she does like the bacon-wrapped turkey) contented herself with "making lemonade" with lemons from the salad bar and the sugar packets on the table. Her idea rubbed off on her cousins and brother and before we knew it, we had a lemonade making factory....

We followed up our meal at Tucanos with a trip to the Clark Planetarium and a 3-D IMAX movie, "Under the Sea". The kids came home singing the song about "an octopus's garden."
