Fun Times in Utah

Blake had some training for work in Utah, so I pulled the kids out of school and we tagged along. It was a great excuse to go hang out with my sisters Sara and Emily. We got to stay with Emily and Chad and see her new house. We all went to the Hogle Zoo in SLC on Monday. It was a beautiful day, and the kids had tons of fun. The next day we stayed in Ogden and went to the Dinosaur Park. Both Jack and Emily have been studying dinosaurs in school, so it eased the guilt of pulling them out of school to consider this outing "educational". Both Emily and Kennedy did not like the robotic dinosaurs at all, and weren't big fans of the dinosaur bones either. So we sped thru this part rather quickly, We did get to watch some real paleontologists (sp?) at work though. Then we went out side. Again, it was a really nice day. They had huge replicas of dinosaurs everywhere. The kids had lots of fun running around. I thought it was well done. Park like, but in a pre-historic kind of way. And there were lots of things for the kids to climb on, so I wasn't constantly saying "Don't touch that!" like most trips to the museum. On the way home, Emily introduced me to a new treat. "Zeppe's Custard and Italian Sodas". It was so yummy and refreshing. I don't think I will be able to pass thru Ogden with out stopping there now (after I stop and pick up Emily of course)!

I am so glad you came down! It was so fun to see you guys and go to the zoo. Your kids are getting so grown up. Looking at the pictures was so fun. They are all old enough to enjoy and remember and love these little vacations.

I love the pictures and can't wait until we get to come hang out with you guys at the end of June! Make sure you all save some fun for then!

How fun! We took our kids to that park for Halloween a couple of years ago. It was sooo cool and Dallin loved it! (He is still a dinosaur man!) By the way, I love your new layout!
