Chocolate, Trains, Cemetary and our day!

I know the title of this post sounds like a weird combination, but that's what our day consisted of. We went with our friends, April, Luke and Megan.

First stop was Mrs. Cavanaugh's chocolate factory tour . It was fun, but the Sweet's Candy factory tour was better.

We then stopped and had lunch at The Front End Grill. The menu items are all named after car parts. Plus, we got to watch the trains go by as you ate. The kids thought that was way cool.

After lunch, April told me about her favorite memory with her Grandparents was smashing pennies on the railroad tracks. So we decided to do this with the kids. We made sure they understood that only the grown ups could go out on the tracks.

The kids cheer with every train passing by.

The engineers waved and one even got out and came across the street to talk to them and then blew the horn for them.

We then drove up to the Salt Lake City Cememtary to see if we could find some of the Prophets graves. All but 3 prohets are buried in this cemetary. Fortunatly, we were able to find a few.

President Hinkley is the only Prophet the kids knew so we were excited to find this one.

The view from the cemetary looks over the valley. It is very pretty.

Today, was Trevor and my 1st Anniversery. He had made plans for his Mom to come and watch the kids while we went out. Unforutatly, April's vehicle broke down on our way back and so things got push back a little. It all worked out though. April's husband Keith came to her rescue. Trevor and his Linda drove down and picked me up. Linda took the kids, and Trevor and I went to dinner. He took me to Benihana's. It was very nice. Thank you Sweetheart. I love you!

You know how some people seem to point out all the bad in others? Even about their friends? I'm so grateful you aren't that way. You are so sweet the way you write things and you make me feel good. I'm glad your anniversary wasn't completely ruined because of me and my car.
