Our Trip to Provo


When Scott came to town last week for a few days, we decided to go to Provo- to visit Audrey and Scott's alma mater, not to mention the place that they first met (aww), to check out some of the campus sites and museums, visit Tessa, and just have a fun outing. Audrey is the queen of FUN! I wish she was still here :(

We walked around campus, went to the science building and ate lunch in the Wilkenson Center




We went to the Monte L. Bean Life Science musuem and I put Savannah a little too close to the stuffed animals.
It was good to see that Shasta the LIGER (that is for Matt- he wasn't with us on this outing and has never believed me when I told him the Hogle Zoo used to have a Liger) has found a permanent home. It was interesting to see all the types of animals, insects, birds, etc., but after a while it seemed a little creepy to me. I don't know why exactly, but luckily the kids have short attention spans, so we moved on to something else. It was a fun day! We miss you, Audrey, Scott, W and O!

If I went to that place it would make me sick too. goodness, no wonder animals are going extinct...

My younger kids loved these when we went. My oldest almost cried. We decided we would never be able to go again. lol

How fun! I love little outings like that, just going someplace new. A few months ago at the zoo one of Dallin's favorite things was looking at all the dead bugs and spiders - ew! I couldn't get him out of there quick enough!

What a handsome brood! That looked like a fun trip! I'm so glad you got to have some good, quality time with your family. It's great to see pic of your beautiful faces!

Oh I'm so jealous! BYU was my alma mater, but it's been years since I was there last. :( Every September I get fiercely envious of all the students going back. That lasts until December when I am joyously happy I'm not taking finals anymore. :)

It looks like you had a ball!
