For me, a day off of work/school means a day we can do something fun and exciting, and take advantage of all the fun things around us in Utah while we're living here, which in all likelihood, won't be too much longer.
Guess who won?
On Monday (MLK day...oh, the benefits of working for the state!) we headed out to visit the Golden Spike National monument. We had a ton of fun learning about the building of the Transcontinental Railroad...
Looking at some fascinating old stuff...
And standing on a little piece of history!
After all the excitement, we stopped for lunch at a little place that made Landon's day:
ATK Rocket Garden - Promontory, UT
All in all, an extremely successful trip. We were home by 5 and still had time for relaxing and a fun house project, which I will post about soon!
