The Golden Spike

One of the places that Robbie wanted to go during Spring Break was The Golden Spike or Promontory Summit. That is the place where the railroad from the East and the railroad from the West met on May 10, 1869. It was a very long drive for a little museum. We did learn a lot about the building of the railroad and the steam engines and Robbie loved it. We took Spencer Parks with us and Spencer and McKenzie were disappointed that nothing was real, just replicas. About two miles away from the Golden Spike there is this rocket display. It was an entertaining day and we enjoyed the little bit of history we learned. Preparation for my fourth grade adventure next year.

A Kick Off to Spring Break!

This Spring Break there will be no fantastic vacations or exotic destinations. We decided that because of an impending mission and the cost of getting ready for that, we would stay home and get some projects done. Here is a synopsis of day one-James and Austin clearing the mighty big stumps out of the yard. Austin really did help and James did spend the customary yelling time!
McKenzie attempting to fill in the really big hole left by the really big tree stump. Of course, James had to offer a lot of help.

And of course Robbie's contribution to the work effort. Notice the progress on the tree house. Where am I? Someone had to operate the camera and supervise!


This picture was taken on Saturday, April 3rd. It looks as if Spring is in the air. It was about 50 degrees and a pretty nice day!

Sunday, April 4th-Happy Easter and goodbye Spring! This is what weather in Utah in the Spring is like!! Tomorrow it will be warm again!
