The last couple months we have done some fun things with the boys. Over Spring Break we tried going to the Zoo. It was a little rainy but we figured we could handle a little rain. What we didn't count on was the wind that was coming from the canyon. We got out of the car long enough to decide the wind was just too cold so we climbed back in the car and headed for the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point. The boys had a great time at the museum. This is just one of the funny pictures I took of my goofy goobers.
Over Memorial Weekend we took a drive to Antelope Island. There was supposed to be a Cowboy Festival going on so we thought we would give it a try. It was a soggy, muddy, wet mess. The boys walked around the homestead while Strider and I hung out in the car. We did get to see the buffalo on the island, which the boys have never seen before. The camera ran out of batteries when we were able to see a few buffalo up close.
Dresden and Logan love museums so I looked up all the local museums and made a list of the ones we would go see. Fort Douglas was on the list. I planned to go up early in the week but notice that Fort Douglas Days was later that weekend. The flyer said there would be free food, displays, and that you could fire some sort of gun. Awesome! The boys should love this. When we arrived we realized it was much smaller than we anticipated. The reenactments were pretty sad. We walked around and saw that people were getting in this old army ambulance. The boys patiently waited their turn while a sister group was up in the cab trying out the drivers seat. When the girls were done Dresden and Logan jumped up and sat in the front seats. Logan, the curious boy that he is, honked the horn which startled all of us. I sort of giggled but then the army guy giving the medical demonstration walked over to the truck and said, "You are in so much trouble! You aren't supposed to be in there!" Then he noticed me on the other side of the ambulance so he calmed down a bit and walked away. Hmmm, if you don't want people in your vehicle then don't have the doors open or at the very least leave a sign asking to "look and not touch". I was sort of bugged with the guy and the boys were really embarrassed. I told them it wasn't their fault and that no harm was done. We looked at some other vehicles, helicopters, and tanks before deciding we weren't going to be able to fire a gun or eat free food. After an hour we had enough and headed home.

They did fire some cannons numerous times. The boys thought that was pretty cool.
We finally made it to the Hogle Zoo. The weather was still chilly but at least there wasn't rain or wind. Logan is our little goofy goober and always is doing something silly. I know, that isn't very sanitary, Logan climbing in the drinking fountain. Well, it wasn't turned on yet so we let him continue his silliness.

If Dresden's arms were a bit longer he would be the size of an Adult Female Gorilla. Imagine the hugs I could get with arms like those. 8 )
