Field Trip Friday

When Ry was little, and the other two kids were in school, I instituted "Field Trip Friday". It gave us both something to look forward to every week. Sometimes we would meet Andrew for lunch, and then go shopping, or to a museum, or park hopping, or the library. His favorite place to go was "Map World" inside of the Utah-Idaho Supply store.
Last Friday, Grace had the day off from school, and it wasn't my Friday to work. I sprang Ry from school too, and we spent the day together. It was the best day ever!
We started off with dentist appointments. Both kids had clean bills of teeth-health. Then we went to Paradise Bakery for lunch, followed by a trip to the BYU Art Museum to see the Karl Bloch exhibit. It was amazing.
The next stop seems silly....but then we went to WinCo. Ry had never been there to view the abundant buy-in-bulk part of the store. Who needs 95 different kinds of granola? Ranch flavored corn nuts for $.71? Dark Chocolate covered cranberries? Spices, nuts, beans by the bag-full!? WE DO!
Then I had free coupons for Golden Spoon we drove up the street to the only one in Utah County and each got a bowl of yogurt. For Free. (Actually we felt kind of bad, so Ry put a dollar in the guys tip jar.) As we walked out, Gracie said with a giggle "Look! The spoon is actually gold!" Hahahahaha....
Day spent with 2 of my favorite people. Life is good ;)
