Eggs, Yaks, and Ice Cream

Today our church had an Easter egg hunt. It was pretty lame. We showed up on time, waited for ten minutes to start, and then within 5 minutes they'd picked up all of the eggs strewn in a wide open field. The end. The only interesting part was me forgetting the Easter basket and arguing with Andy over whether we should drive home and get it. We ended up with a ghetto child out hunting eggs with a plastic Target bag. At least we had that in the car, otherwise if we'd gone home we would have missed the whole thing.

Andy and I whined about what a fun activity it could have been and how we would have done it differently, and then decided we weren't ready to go home yet. We ended up going to BYU's Life Science Museum so that the boy could look at the animals. We just happened to get there during the live reptile show, so Calvin enjoyed the turtles, iguanas, and snakes and then wandered around. Here are a few shots.

He was more interested in his train than the the animals. He drove it over all of the displays.

Some gazelles, goats, yaks and such.

Fish that he wanted to be lifted up to see properly.
More train driving.

Then we went to the BYU Creamery. They make hands-down the best ice cream I've ever tasted. And I've tasted lots of ice cream (unfortunately).
