The Treehouse

The kids can't go to Ogden without making a visit to The Treehouse. They have tons of fun playing with all the different things. They spent over an hour with the knights and castle. Carson is going through a phase where he loves wrapping things around his neck. Fun for him; way scary for me. He walked around the entire time with this toy measuring tape wrapped around his neck. He was in heaven.

Hogle Zoo

We spent a fun-filled day at Hogle Zoo. We had quite the group. I think there were 17 of us all together. All three of my boys loved the zoo. Carson was so excited to see every animal. He barked at all of them.
Of course you can't go to the zoo without a train ride.

Cole and Indy playing in the lion's mouth.

Carson loved watching the giraffe eat leaves with his long black tongue.

It was such a hot day the boys loved getting a little wet from the elephant.

Dinosaur Park

The boys love to visit Dinosaur Park every time we go to Grandma's. They were even more excited to have our friends, the Mertlich's, go with us. We started with a picnic and then explored the park. They liked digging in the sand for dinosaur bones the best! I think the playground was a close second.

The Ogden Raptors

Grandpa got us tickets to go to a Raptors baseball game. Payton and Cole were thrilled to go to the game! Grandpa picked a great game for us. The Raptors unveiled their new score board and won the game. The boys loved the entire experience... hot dogs, popcorn, nachos, sodas, new hats and all the fun music.

After the game we walked around downtown Ogden and admired all the painted horses.
Thanks to Grandma for staying home to watch Carson and to Grandpa for the fun night out!

Union Station

The boys and I decided to take a road trip while Brian went to Girls Camp & Scout Camp. Our three week adventure started in Ogden with Grandma and Grandpa Scott and ended in Twin Falls with Grandma & Grandpa Hardy. While in Ogden we did tons of fun things. The boys loved seeing all the trains at Union Station. They climbed on and off the trains about a million times. After seeing everything outside we went to the museums inside. Payton thought all the old fashion cars were "so awesome".
