Home Again!

This last week Tyson and I went down to Sandy, UT to visit family and take some time off. We got home last night, and while it is always so great to get to see those we love in Utah it is also wonderful to be home again.
Our trip was rather simple, the basic purpose was just to relax and visit family and friends. While there we went down to Provo one afternoon and went to lunch with my brother Ricky at the Brick Oven, which is always fun. Tys enjoyed lunch but didn't much care to be in Provo and near BYU, which he rather dislikes. Don't worry, I'm working on him, someday he'll be a BYU fan.
Tyson decided that we should visit Hogle Zoo while in town. He hasn't been there in ages and I had never been so we spent our Friday morning there. It was actually a lot of fun. The weather was cool and comfortable and the zoo wasn't crowded at all. Tyson had some fun over by the great apes. Turns out he is bigger than a gorilla...he checked. Though I guess his arms aren't quite as long. Really it was just a lot of fun and a nice way to spend the morning. It is funny how much it made me feel like a little kid again. I was just fascinated with all of the animals. Tyson enjoyed the building with all of the reptiles. Creepy crawlies terrify me, but he loves them. I told him he would have to visit them in the zoo then because we won't be getting snakes, lizards, or the like as a pet.
On our way home from the zoo we also made sure to stop by Tyson's Grandma and Grandpa Spencer's home. They are always a lot of fun to visit with.
Overall, it was a fun little trip and a break from the everyday routine and constant work on our house or in our yard. Of course, starting tomorrow we are back to the daily grind, but that's alright, the holidays will be here soon and then comes another break or two.

  1. I wouldn't have pictured you as the "afraid of creepy-crawlies" type, for some reason.
