Utah's Bounty


What a glorious 5 days in beautiful Brigham City, Utah!  The week included visits with Grandpa and family, irrigating the garden, mint chocolate chip ice cream at Peach City, marigolds in the sunshine, running through the sprinkler, a run to Smith and Edwards for stuff we can't live without, reading on a blanket on the lawn out back, and picking a bountiful harvest of tomatos, potatos, corn, onions, garlic, and peaches!  Whew! 


Rowdy had an amazing time and was so excited to see his Great Grandpa!  He especially loved irrigation time and helping Grandpa in the garden.  The weather was beautiful and the sun was shining all week. 


Rowdy thought it was the coolest that one could pick a peach and eat it right away!  And that he did! Yummy!  Grandpa had me take all those lovely ripe peaches home with us.  Along with a bevy of vegetables.  Bless his heart! 


And did I mention the homemade Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream from Peach City Drive-In?  I could have lived off this stuff all week (well I guess I did so to speak since I had some at least once a day)!  Feel free to lick the screen now.


Rowdy also got to go inside a Caboose for the very first time.  We drove down to the tracks to chase some trains but never saw one.  So we took a stroll over the tracks to check out a parked Caboose.  He was amazed that it had a toilet! 


What a great and memorable trip!  We can't wait to go back again and visit!  Now I need to get going and do something with that bounty I brought home!  Peaches anyone?
