A big day out

Earlier this year, we were discussing taking a camping trip over Cooper's Spring Break. Hoping the weather would cooperate with us, we wanted to head out to Utah for a few days. Sadly our sweet Molly is not doing very well and we did not want to leave her. We also ended up having a HUGE snowstorm( about 20 inches)  on the day we were wanting to leave, which would of made out trip across the state really hard. So it all ended up okay.  So trying to get some excitement into the break, we headed to the aquarium and Natural History Museum.

Sitting with Sharks outside the Aquarium
 New views for the fishes
 Lauren loved the mermaid show. She sat still for 10 minutes before it started without moving a muscle for fear of missing it.
 Cooper playing around while watching the sharks
 This little girl LOVES her Daddy (which I agree, he is very loveable : )! )
 Petting the sting rays
  After a really good lunch at Joel's new favorite taco stop, Torchy's Tacos. We headed over to the Natural History Museum.  The traveling exhibit is about chocolate, so I was really excited about that one.

How great would it be if these were real
 Lauren is always happy at the Discovery Zone water table
 Coop stuck with the dino dig
Here is a recent photo for Lauren with Molly. She celebrated her 14th birthday last week. She has had a recent growth on her hip that they believe is cancerous (kind of see it in this photo). So we are giving her all the love we can!! Thought I am not sure if she is crazy about all the love that we have to give :). She is a great doggie!
We are now back to school and hope to get a shorter camping trip in a few weeks when Cooper has long weekend.  We also just booked tickets to Florida in June, so more adventures are coming.
