In my town there is a great place called Thanksgiving Point. There's a museum, tons of gardens, a farm, a golf course, restaurants, a movie theater. Tons of stuff. It was built by a really rich lady as a "gift to Utah County." But then I think she realized that it takes even more money than she'd realized to give a gift to Utah County, so she jacked the prices up on everything. Too rich for my blood.
Anyway, I've never been to the museum. In fact, I hadn't been to Thanksgiving Point since 1998 when they changed it from being free. But my cousin (and buddy) Becca called me last week and invited me to go to $2 Tuesday and see the dinosaur museum with her and her kids--you can get into any venue for $2. What that means in Utah County, though, is that every mother with her 5 children and all her friends with their 5 children are there with 3 strollers apiece. Wall to wall double strollers--saving some money on a kid friendly activity. Not like I can complain since I went with 3 kids under 3 in a triple stroller the size of Texas, but whatever.
We did manage to have some fun while we risked our lives maneuvering through the crowds:
Thanks for inviting us Becca. We had a blast!
