The weather was amazing last week and we were able to be out and about. I took the kids to our local zoo. It was fun and also the animals kept coming up to the fence as if to say hi, needless to say we felt pretty popular. We were also lucky enough to have my sister Kirse and her family come and visit on their way home to Washington. This made the kids super excited about seeing their cousins again this summer. Lastly, we went to the annual Aggie Spring Football Game. It was fun and we were happy that over 6,000 fans came out to support the team. This was the highest attendance for a spring game that we have ever had! This makes us excited for the football season this fall! Daniel also finally got his bowl ring for the Poinsettia Bowl Game we won in December in San Diego. It is bigger and better than last years. Fun stuff! We are getting ready for Easter this weekend. Good times!

I already posted this on my Granat Family blog, but I wanted to include it here as well, because it is something I spent a lot of time working on lately.
Back in January we attended a different chapel in Logan. It was really old and had some interesting features, like a pioneer painting and a balcony in the chapel. It was there that my interest was piqued. I wondered what other old buildings are in town and what are their stories? So the investigative journalist kicked in and began to research. Here is my story.
I began by checking out tons of books from the library, I marked all the buildings I wanted to find and take pictures of. Finally we planned out an adventurous day with the kids and we went all over town discovering some of these older buildings.
So with that I present Cache Valley Historic Buildings:
Here is the first chapel that started it all.
Here is a photo of John T. Cain's home in Logan
And that is what I learned about Logan and some of its historic buildings. Thanks to the Logan library and Elise for being so into this project that she practically memorized the pictures in the books and helped me find them around town.
