Ice Cream and a Bomb

When Rob and I used to go to the Ogden Temple we loved to stop at Farr’s Ice Cream across the street, obviously! So it was a MUST to take my kids there, too. Can something be nostalgic for me when it’s only been a few years? Well, it is.

I couldn’t take enough of these pictures. The lighting and colors were just right!

On the way home from Ogden we stopped at Hill Aerospace Museum. Nate loved this place when he was small. Again with the nostalgia…

Warning: Fuzzy pictures follow.

Awww. Aren’t they so sweet together? Actually what looks like a nice hug is actually Madeleine trying to wrestle him out of the chair so she can give it a try.

Caroline thought all the Boy Ken’s (boyfriends/Ken dolls) were fantastic! She even saw one off in the distance and was excited that it was moving! Madeleine’s like, “Cara. That’s just a guy.” Nate was sure to show her all of the headless Boy Ken’s and also just the heads that were on display elsewhere, laughing all the while. The look on her face is priceless! Makes me laugh every time I look at this picture.

Nate had read about the Blackbird so that was his favorite plane to see. On our way out a docent stopped us and talked to us for a long time about that plane and many other things 🙂

Nate also likes reading about the atom bomb.

How often do you get to snack underneath a huge plane of some sort?

Such a fun day!!

P.S. One funny note I want to make is that the morning of this, of course, we procrastinated getting Nate’s church clothes found and put together. Yes, his church clothes always need to be “found”. Anyway, we either couldn’t find them or they were dirty or something so I told him to put on the nicest pair of jeans that he had and found this nice, clean button-up shirt for him to wear. It was taking him forever to come downstairs so I yelled up to him. After a while he came down crying mad and saying, “I hate this outfit! It looks so dumb!” I had the hardest time not laughing. I rolled up the sleeves and un-buttoned the top button and that was good enough for him to wear it just for the day. Then I took the shoelaces out of Rob’s dress shoes and put them in Nate’s dress shoes. Nate keeps taking out his laces and losing them. After the second pair of laces I bought and he lost I gave up and he’s been wearing shoes without laces to church for the last couple of months. Ghetto, I know. Haha.
