Quote of the Week

“You are the one thing in this world, above all other things, that you must never give up on.” – Lili Reinhart

Fact of the Week

There is a stadium in Brazil in which the midfield line lies on the Equator, making each team defend one hemisphere.

Joke of the Week

As an attorney in a major New Mexico law firm, I have many colleagues who work long hours. However, the reputation of one of my partners’ workaholic ways even extended beyond the office. He not only had to leave work early one day because of a medical problem, but was also told by his doctor to stay home until the end of the week. My colleague grudgingly agreed to comply. In the middle of the week, our receptionist received a call for him. She announced that the partner was out of the office until Friday.
"Good," the caller said. "That’s all I wanted to know." It was my partner’s doctor.

Bingham Canyon Copper Mine

Fun activity week two was a trip to the Kennecott Copper Mine. It has been a while since we have visited this place. If it is possible, it is even bigger. It is the only manmade structure (other than the Great Wall of China) that can be seen by astronauts orbiting the Earth. Here is one of the wheels from the dumptrucks they use. Huge!!!

Alee and Boston came with us. We had to take two pics!! If you look close, it is a funny face pic.

Here is an action shot. All of them are looking into the mine cart at all of the cool rocks!

Here is one of the superhuge dump trucks. My camera is on the fullest zoom.

Here is a look at the side of the mine. It stretches on and on and on.....

My camera is on the widest angle I have and I still couldn't fit the mine all the way in. Pay attention to the left side of the pic. About three fourths of the way up you can barely make out a building on the side. It is the crusher factory (my name for it.)Here it is on full zoom. Check that out!

Here is a toy replica of the same factory in the visitor's center.

Boston found the trucks! His favorite!

He wanted a hug from Topher. It is so funny because Topher isn't used to having one littler than him, we kind of had to tell him what to do.


They got free buttons from the visitor center.

After the mine, we had a picnic in the park, then came back home for some swimming time!

This is a cute pic!

We had a great time! Thanks to Alee and Boston for joining us!
