Description When we arrived in Salt Lake, our aunt, who was expecting us, laughed to see such a jam-packed car. What she didn't expect was We ate one loaf after another and kept her busy going to purchase more. The next day we went to the circus and saw the elephants and monkeys. Aunt Leotia bought us each a large colored gas balloon. We took the usual tides and enjoyed the sights. I heard a man yelling, so I ran to see why. Ee vas talking about a fat lady and midget- When 1 looked up to tell Mama of Che interesting sight, she I didn't wander too long until my parents found me. Thereafter, they insisted on holding my hand wherever we went. The second day we all went swimming at Saltair. The water was so salty it held us up. We were very excited.
