Spring Break Day 2 & 3

Day two found us at the Hogle Zoo. It was a tad on the freezing side and we got caught in a pretty heavy snow storm. I kept thinking that it would let up, but it just snowed harder and harder. However, being the cheapskate that I am, I couldn't convince myself that we needed to leave early, so we just covered up and hustled to each exhibit. It was fun to see the gorillas. This big guy came right up to the window and glared at us. The picture is a bit dark because we were afraid of what he might do if the flash upset him. You never know how thick that glass really is...


This is a picture of us hiding under a makeshift dug out. It's kind of odd looking, but we are trying to take a picture out of the snowstorm.



On Wednesday, we went to Classic Skate up in Sandy. The boys had never been skating before and Zack and I were in the mood for a good laugh. I think that they were real troopers. They fell so many times and were pretty sore afterwards, but they all kept trying to get better at it. Scotty loved the "ice skating".



The last big hoop-la for the day was visiting the Living Planet Aquarium. It was kinda fun, but really small for the price. There are basically two hallways you can walk down. Supposedly, the new aquarium they are hoping to build is going to be much bigger with more fish. I hope that they will charge the same price, but I highly doubt that.
Tommy really enjoyed being able to touch the "slimy" rays.


I think that this was the biggest puffer fish any of us had ever seen. You know, since we make it a habit to see a lot of them...

The good thing about chilly weather and the zoo is that the animals have more energy.

sounds like a fun spring break.

Where do you guys get your ideas? We have such a hard time thinking of things to go and do!
