Since we never go on vacation, we decided to turn this weekend into a cheesy "mini" vacation. My brother had a football game on the campus of Weber State University at 8:00 pm on Friday night. That's a late game and the thought of driving two groggy kiddos home at 10:30 pm for a two hour drive where inevitably upon arriving home they would wake up and be mean, we decided to stay the night in Ogden and have some fun.
So, the weekend was set. We slept in a hotel by the freeway. We ate breakfast, wandered the Ogden farmers market, got two mint limeades and figured out the recipe to try at home, went to the tree house museum so the kids could play, drove through the canyon, played at a park in Huntsville and ate some good BBQ at Texas Pride. On the way home, the chillins crashed hard and it was a peaceful drive home.
Unfortunately, we arrived home to FOOTBALL ON TV so for those of you who know my husband, you know how the rest of our night went.
On Thursday, before our "vacation" the boys and I went to the zoo...because that's how we roll.
