How Sweet It Is!
Blog, what blog? Okay so I've been a bit neglectful in my blogging this summer, but that doesn't mean that I don't think about it, and plan for it. It just means I'm out having fun, and relaxing with my kiddos. We had some of our favorite friends and neighbors from Arizona, the D family, visiting this last weekend. It's always fun when they come because we tend to take advantage of the fun things to do around here a little bit more. One of the highlights of the visit for the kids was a trip to the Sweet's Candy Factory in Salt Lake City. When I told you about their taffy here I decided it would be fun to take a tour, and so we did. The kids (and Laurie and I) had a great time. There are no pictures of the actual tour-it's top secret-no cameras allowed. But we did manage a few pictures of us in our ultra flattering factory hair nets, and of course there are some of the candy (the best part). Sorry, there's no giveaway this time (I don't think I could pry this taffy from my kids' sticky fingers).
Now that the summer is winding down I'm trying to hype myself up to become an uber-turbo blogger. I figure I'll need something to distract me from the fact that I'll be so lonely. I get emotional just thinking about both of my kids being in school all day. I told Travis yesterday that I feel like I will have lost my purpose in life (when my kids go to school that is), so I guess I'll have to find a new one (at least Mon.-Fri. from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. anyway) or start homeschooling. But my kids vetoed that idea, and to tell you the truth we'd probably take a few too many field trips if I was the teacher. Candy factory tours? That's educational...
