Spring Break for the Bshaws

We sadly spent our break here in dreary Utah but we made our own fun! We got to spend time with our families and we got to spend some much needed time with each other, I feel like I am single sometimes my sweetie is such a busy bee ;) jk about the single part. One Wednesday and Thursday we took the days off, we went down home Wednesday morning and went to the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point with Nate's mom and nephews, man little hand fulls they are it was like a birth control without swallowing a pill ;) they are way cute though. Nate's Grandpa was a big butterfly and moth collector and he would go on expeditions with this guy named Cliff who is like the head honcho at the museum. Little did I know they also make stop animation films at the museum as well some of the puppets they used were so cool they were carved from wood and were so intricate. Cliff took us on the behind the scenes tour of the museum, it was awesome! We got to see and touch real dinosaur bones they were excavating and making models for. He also let us take a couple of dino bones home with us...sort of creepy but way cool! Here are some pics from our fun day with the dinos!

On Thursday we got to spend the whole day just the two of us! We went to the Gateway and Nate let me do some shopping ;) I got some super fun new shades and drooled over everything at Urban Outfitters I want everything there!! We saw the movie Coraline they had absolutely nothing out... it was sorta creepy to me I would for sure never take a small child. it was just weird I should have learned my lesson with A Nightmare Before Christmas. After dinner we headed out for some grub, I saw this awesome BBQ place on The Food Network's Diner, Drive-Ins, and Dives. It was called Pat's BBQ it was so fun and so so yummy if you like BBQ for sure to hit it up it was like the best I've had!


Look at how happy a rib makes this guy ;)

BBQ=Fierce ;)

Thanks for the great weekend my Sweetie, Fam, and Cliff! We had a blast and didn't want to come back....only two more months till Summer right..? Love love ;)

Hey, Brad loves Pat's BBQ and eats there every few weeks or so. I have never been but am not a huge rib person either. Looks like you had a great time away from school and work. Hang in there, summer is coming!
