Opening of City Creek Center

I know what you're thinking:  "Libby posted something?  I forgot I was even following her..."  Yep, it's been a while since I have posted anything.  I recently had a "moment" where I got pretty bummed that I haven't been recording what Ben and I have been up to.  We have a lot of fun together and I'm sad that I won't remember most of it.  Oh well, I guess.  Here's to being better at that.

A couple of weeks ago we went with our friends Lincoln and Julie to dinner and the opening of the City Creek Center (the new mall in downtown Salt Lake).  They took us to this hole-in-the-wall restaurant called Sapa.  It had a pretty sketchy entrance, but the inside was beautiful and the food was delicious!

After dinner we took the Trax over to City Creek.  It was opening night so it was pretty packed.  I could not believe how good of a job they did with it!  I loved everything about it:  the warm, bright atmosphere; the creek running down the middle; the fountains; the open roof (which has the ability to close, too); the skywalk that goes over the street, connecting the two blocks and all of the DETAILS. I loved it!

They had these live musicians all over the place.  It was pretty fun.

They built into existing buildings.

It's all about the details...

It was amazing!  I really like how it turned out.  Because we went so late, we only had time to see a few stores so I'm excited to go back during the day.

yay! I'm glad you decided to post again. One of the few things that I'm so glad I have done is keep up on my blogging. It's like my own personal history.. and now even my kids love to look through the posts with me. It really is a blessing in disguise. Keep it up and you will be so glad you did!
P.S. I want to go to city creek so bad! We should have a Lyman girls day!
