We had a wonderful vacation in Ogden. (Who knew Ogden was such fun?) We left Friday morning and stopped in Logan for lunch and our annual trip to Gossners for school lunch milks... and then we took the kids to The Treehouse Museum. This is undoubtedly one of the coolest museums for children... dress up and play 'heroes', act out story books in the children's amphitheater, pretend to be the President of the United States in the Oval Office, play life-size chess... there was so much to enjoy there (and who knew Aunt Michaelene was on the Board of Directors there?) For dinner, we drove up to the mouth of Ogden Canyon and ate at The Timbermine. I highly recommend this one-of-a-kind steakhouse. Delish food, excellent service, and unique ambiance. Saturday was the Packer Family Reunion at Aunt Michaelene's house in Pleasant View. The kids swam in her pool ALL. DAY. LONG. (Emma has green hair to prove it.) Uncle Alan had the food catered and it was plentiful and delicious! (Hawaiian -style, complete with guava cake and homemade ice cream!)
Finally, we ended with Sunday afternoon in Farmington (ahem, forget that the Mister got pulled over in Kaysville for speeding. Luckily, Officer Gillespi was a God-fearing man. We got off with a warning...) My brother and his family live there and blessed their new baby Ethan. Afterwards, we had a delightful luncheon at his in-laws home in Centerville.
Pack in the memories, folks... school starts in T minus 20 days...
I am honored to be married to my husband extraordinaire Joseph, for 15 years. Our joy is full (most days) because we are blessed to have these children in our family: Joshua (12yrs), Emma (10 yrs), Caleb (7yrs), and Elizabeth (5 yrs.). I enjoy camping with my family, cooking, reading, playing and teaching the violin and blogging. Our story began over 15 years ago at Ricks College. We have moved 9 times in 14 years, but have come full circle to the city where we were married and sealed in the LDS temple.
