i wish

OIiver today made himself a wishing well. I went into the kitchen and he had a cup full of water and it was filled with coins. As I walked by I heard him say "I wish I was tall".

Last night Cortney and I went on a date. It has been FOREVER since we have gone out together...with no kids. We dropped off Oli and Rob at Cali's at 7:00 then we headed to Sandy. We had already gotten tickets to the 10:30 show of Harry Potter. I have never been up to Jordan Commons before. It was crazy there were soooo many people there. We put our names on the list to eat at The Mayan. I have never been there before...they have a diving show and people dressed like Mayan indians...and Jaguars and there are drums beating and bird noises. The restaurant smells kinda like a ride at disneyland...kinda like pirates of the carribean. We waited 1 hour to be seated. I couldn't believe it Cortney and I never wait at a restaurant to eat. We'd usually rather find somewhere else. But...heck we didn't have kids so waiting was kinda nice (besides the fact we were STARVING). As we sat there for that hour I just thought about the times we had before kids. And how much having kids changes everything. I don't think people realize how different having a kid is before you have one. I love having kids but it definetly makes moments such as this one (waiting in peace) few and far between. Of course the whole time we were eating we kept thinking...I wish the boys were here they would love this.

After waiting we were ready for our "adventure to begin", as they said when our table was ready. I was plesantly surprised. The restaurant is under new manangement...so I guess it is supposed to be way better than before. Since I haven't been before I don't know. Anyways...the salsa and chips were delish. I loved the little show. I also totally expected for the food to just be slopped on there like in most mexican restaurants. But our dishes were plated beautifully. It looked like fancy food.

After eating Cortney and I headed over to the Mega theater that is at Jordan Commons. It is pretty unbelievable how many theaters they have in there. They grossed the most money of any theater...harry potter only...on opening night. Anyways we watched the movie on the IMAX screen. It was awesome and we were both so excited for it to start. Cortney kept saying how he always hopes the movies never end and how much he loves Harry Potter. HAhaaha. I am sure he would appreciate me writing that. Anyways it was amazing. On such a huge screen such a great show. I kept telling myself...I am not going to blog about this I have been blogging too much. But...Oh it was good. I have only seen nature shows in IMAX. This was better. The last 30 minutes were in 3D which was awesome. We got out at 1:00 a.m. It was a great night.

'Kay we live like 2 seconds from there. Sounds like fun. I love love love Harry Potter. I'm a freak. I re-read book 5 then saw the movie the DAY BEFORE IT OPENED (yeah, I'm super cool and went to a pre-release party) and then I re-read book 6 to get ready for book 7 this Saturday. My kids love the Mayan. We should all go sometime!

That sounds so fun! I think Tom and I are going to see that movie tonight, hopefully! Tom loves Harry's Potter as well, I laughed really hard when you said that Cortney wouldn't like that you told everyone he liked Harry Potter. Tom said that same thing when I worte in my blog that we watched "dirty dancing"! Ha!

Good for you guys! You need to get out more without your kids, especially when you family that will babysit for you. I have gone to a place like that--it is way fun! I am glad you enjoyed it.

Candice...I am the same...Harry Potter Junkie. I am starting to read the whole series again. To get ready for the 7th book. I can't decide if I should start at book #4 since I remember the first 3 really well. Also we actually said we should have called steve and candice and ben and briar. We are always looking for people to go out with...lets do it.

ash stop saying that you are blogging too much! I love it. Kyle and I are going to harry potter tonight, and I laughed when i read that you are starting the series to get ready for book 7 because I started with the very FIRST book today, as I just finished the "uglies" series yesterday. I feel like I have to read the 7th book very soon after it's released or else I will somehow find out the ending. so i'm a reading machine right now. Long comment...
