Park Day

Scotland has a tendency to like and want the same things as his older siblings.  So, when he heard about how much fun Zoe had golfing last week, he knew exactly what he wanted to do.

We started our fathermoment with some grub.  I picked Scott up from his preschool and we decided to go to Emmett’s and Ethel’s in Lehi.  I think that their scones are delicious; so, me made sure that we got an order of them.  When I don’t do our dates early in the morning it is a little hard to squeeze in a devotional.  Nonetheless, I tried to do this while we waited for our food to be prepared.  I thought Joseph Smith and the restoration of the Church would be an appropriate topic since earlier in the week I overheard something strange that Scott told his little sister, Lola, while I was underneath my car, performing an oil change.  Scott said, “Lola, look!  I see Joseph Smith!  He is driving in that red car.”  For those of you who haven’t had the privilege of getting to know Scotland, you should know that he is very random.  At the time, I laughed pretty hard as I listened him try to convince his, almost 2-year-old, sister that a prophet who was assassinated in the 1800’s was driving a red car in Lehi, UT.  Anyway, today, Scott admitted to me that he didn’t actually see Joseph Smith, but that he was just trying to trick his sister.  I am glad he is not hallucinating!

After lunch we headed to a park with our clubs and some golf balls.  I didn’t think he was quite ready for the country club.  The only problem was that I forgot our camera!  If you haven’t noticed, all of the pictures in this post are from around our house, taken on a later date.  Nothing to significant happen while at the park other than Scott unleashed his manhood and marked his territory on a huge tree.  This brought a smile to my face and reminded me of last summer’s rehab program when I worked diligently to influence Scott by teaching him some secrets of manhood.

By their fruits, ye shall know them!
