Spring Break trip

Most people who plan trips for spring break try to find a place to relax with beautiful beaches and warm weather. Well we are not like most people. Sure warm weather and sandy beaches may sound nice, but does it really live up to all the hype? We decided to pass on the obvious and boring ideas, and go to a place were tens of thousands of college students flock to every year. Beautiful Provo Utah. Now that we had a place to go we had to decide how we were going to get there. We discussed flying, driving, and almost every other mode of transport available. After deliberating for hours on the pros and cons of each type of transportation we came to a couple of conclusions. Flying was by far the fastest and easiest, but everyone flies now where is the adventure in that. We even thought about overnighting ourselves with FedEx, but hit a snag when we could not figure out how we would get to the drop off location after we were taped up in the boxes. The only real option left to us was to drive. The big problem was how to make a 15 hour drive with three tired kids even more fun. I racked my brain for the answer, and then it hit me. I would work a mid-shift and we would leave as soon as I got home from work! It was brilliant I would stay awake all night and then drive for 15 hours that very next morning. This was truly going to be a trip to remember. Well I am told we actually made it and here is some proof. While we were there we made a stop at the Hogle Zoo.

A white alligator!!

Nice Elephant

We even saw a Lion!!!!

The big hit was this cute baby Giraffe.

The trip was a blast and the kids really enjoyed seeing there Grandpa and Grandma Kats. and uncles Jeff and Jonny. We were also able to see Great grandparents and some of Kristen's best friends. We even got to see Grandpa at work conducting the BYU Symphony. The trip home was a lot easier. The 14 hours flew by and before we knew it we were home.

Of course you have to take a road trip. Life is just not complete without a road trip with three kids. Taylor has changed so much since we saw him. He looks more mature than you are Isaac:)

Your next road trip needs to be to Tennessee. Come on. You know you want to.

Miss you guys.
