Two Jacks Pizza!!!

Ashton’s preschool class went on a field trip to Two Jacks Pizza.  Just in case you are wondering, it IS THE BEST pizza ever! And yes, that IS Jack!  We love him!


Oooooh my goodness!  It was only 10:30 in the morning and it took ALL of my self control NOT to eat Ashton’s pizza!

Ice Skating

We went ice skating at Seven Peaks for Ryan’s birthday party.  It was sooooo much fun!  Ashton and Emmy were a little bit nervous at first but by the time the rink closed, it was definitely hard to get those little guys off the ice.

Carl Bloch Exhibit

On Valentine’s Day, our little family went to the Carl Bloch Exhibit at BYU.  We just happened to get tickets on V-day but I thought it was very appropriate, as there is no greater LOVE than Christ’s love for each one of us.  We highly recommend going to see these incredible paintings.  It would have been very nice to go without the little tykes, but they still talk about the paintings and I know they learned a lot.  I really love teaching these little guys about Jesus.  It’s amazing how much they understand and retain.

When you go, you should rent the iPad to enhance your experience.

Sea World Utah

We took the kids to The Living Planet Aquarium the other day (okay, it was a month ago but whatever).   We had never been there before and even though I was in the mood to DRIVE to Sea World, it was still a very fun afternoon adventure.

We got to pet the bat rays…I think that’s what they were…just like at the REAL Sea World

Ashton and Emmy loved watching the penguins

I had NO IDEA those penguins (what, Emperor Penguins…I don’t know.  I have the WORLDWIDE WEB at my fingertips but I’m not in the mood to look it up, OKAY!!!!) were that HUUUUGE.  That’s plain old scary, if you ask me!  That beak is DEADLY!  SHOO’!!!

The aquarium was pretty small, small enough that Ashton spent most of the time finding his own way around with the map, seeing what he wanted to see.  (I followed behind, of course)
