Yesterday I took the boys on an excursion to visit the Kennecott Copper Mines. On the way home when I asked the boys if they had had a good time, Hank confessed that it wasn't as cool as he thought it would be. Apparently, Hank was under the impression that he was going to get to ride in the dump trucks, get right down in the excavation site, and get in on the action. They were a little disappointed that they had to settle for watching all of the excavation action (worlds largest man-made excavation site) from a safe distance. Nonetheless, they were pretty mesmerized watching the giant dump trucks haul off huge loads of materials and learn all about the history of the copper mine at the visitor center museum.
