As summer tried to sneak away, I took a trip to outer space, Germany, and pre-historic Utah. It was exciting because I was with my Utah grandsons!
Spencer is interested in SO many different things, including space travel. BUT at the top of his list is ANYTHING German. Maybe this is because he loved learning about his great-grampa’s adventures as a B-17 top-turret gunner during World War II. Or maybe he’s curious about the land of his dad’s birth. Regardless of the reason, we enjoyed a great day learning about our universe, space pirates, and yummy German food.
Spencer and I had the Clark Planetarium and Museum nearly all to ourselves that August day, but when I took Connor and Carter to Thanksgiving Point’s Dinosaur Museum on Connor’s birthday, we shared the event with nearly ALL of Utah County. But the boys were so excited that they didn’t mind the LONG line that wrapped half way around the building! (That’s what happens on $2 Tuesdays!)
I’m lucky I got so many pictures of Carter because he was off and running between the focus and the click of the camera! Gramma was tuckered at the end of that day!

I don’t remember that moonwalk exhibit, but those pictures are fun–I’ll bet Neal will be so proud to show those off to his friends at school. Looks like you had a great summer break with the grandkids. Hope the school year goes as well for you.
