Spring Break :)

For spring break this semester we decided to go on a mine vacation to Utah.  More specifically we went to Ogden and Sandy Utah.  The trip was just the right amount of distance form home so that you could easily forget all your worry's and enjoy your self.

  Our first stop on our vacation was at the dinosaur museum in Ogden.  Where my girls along with some of their friends discovered dinosaurs around every corner.  I wished we could have gone a little slower so we could read about each exhibit.  But when children think that they are discovering something new around every bend they race to be the first to see it.  From my stand point it was very amusing to watch their excitement increases with each passing minuet, and I rather enjoyed just watching their faces with every new discovery. 

To top it off the museum had some very fun activities that, for a fee, you could dig up polished rock out of their gravel pit.  While my girls were busy doing that I was picking out some geodes that I wanted to have cut.  Over all the museum was very effective in getting me to forget my worry's.

Next we went to the Mayan restaurant, the food was good and the entertainment was amazing.  This restaurant's boasts that you will have a South American jungle experience. You sit in the branches of a three story tree full of rain forest animals.  Its entertainment is centered around a water fall, taller than the tree that stands across form it, where actors will jump into a pool some 60 feet below. 

To finish up our vacation we took our kid to the build a bear workshop in the gateway mall.  Where my girls enjoyed giving their bears a air bath and picking out clothing for their bears. 

This vacation was the best that I have had in a very long time.  In fact it was so good that I completely forgot about all of my homework that was due when spring break ended.
