Utah Festival Opera and Logan Trip - the big kids have a get-away with the grandparents

Grandpa Dave and Grandma Connie are true opera lovers.  They have exposed my kids to different operas over the years and they also have developed a love and appreciation for this art form.  So as a special treat - they took Addie and Isaac to spend the weekend at the Utah Festival Opera in Logan.  As you will see - it wasn't all about the shows - they packed lots of fun things in the few days that they were there.

The first thing they did was visit the American West Heritage Center.  Here they are waiting for the train ride.
There were many animals to see.
All aboard!

The woodwright's shop.

They saw old giant tractors.

They even got to ride the ponies!  I'm surprised they haven't passed the weight limit...well, maybe I am not that surprised.

Hatchet throwing.

Panning for gold!
That evening they saw Fiddler on the Roof.  Addie was expecting to see an operatic version of "Fiddler..." but it really was just the good old Broadway version.
The next day they visited the Golden Spike National Historic Site.

That evening they had dinner at Maddox - for the famous fried chicken!!

I think this picture is hilarious!
They visited the Logan tabernacle.
They are good buddies.
In honor of our Romney ancestors.
A beautiful view!
That evening they saw the opera, The Flying Dutchman.  Addie said it was amazing and she wished it was longer.  
And to top off the fun - they had marshmallow mateys every morning!
We are so grateful to Dave and Connie for providing these wonderful experiences for our children!  It made a for a fun and eventful summer!

Way to wear the BYU hat on Aggie country, Isaac!
