The one with good times and good places

I had a really bad week this week and so I asked my uncle to take me down to BYU to see some friends. I spent some time with them and then went down to Spanish Fork and all the places we used to go. We used to go to the drive inn all the time! They had the best pennie candies! Dad would go to the thirst station and take me in sometimes, and for some reason I always liked the steps. ONE MAN BAND, does it get any better than that? You get to call in your order and then if you were the lucky child you could go pick it up. I always asked for a scone. Barry's was good, I remember going there with tiffany. Hogi Yogi is so good, even better than subway. I loved their kids meals when I was little. The first time I went to Hickory Kist was with my dad and a lady from his work. The sadwhich was so big and good. They had the best fudge too! I remember playing baseball at the feilds and the easter egg hunts! I remember going to Jo-Ann's with my mom. The infamous mortuary! I loved this pool-it was so cool, I wish I had better pictures of the pool cause I would have put them up. Mom used to take me to the library a lot, I had some feild trips here too. And on the fourth of july that's where they had the chilli cook off. I liked the army's best! Dad loved the C-A-L store, we went a lot-or at least I remember going a lot. This is where we would park at the Gas Station, always! Dad even has a mug from here, he would let me get a drink sometimes and I would get SO excited! When I was little I wanted nothing more than to grow up and go to Spanish Fork High. I did stuff there, I don't remember what it was, but I loved the place. The only theatre in Spanish Fork, I lost a tooth here, I took a feild trip here, so many memories. L-A, L-A-R, L-A-R-S-E-N. Larsen! Larsen! That's the cheer we yelled at the county track meet that I was in in 4th grade-I had the cutest little red flower shorts and I was a track star! I went here for 4th and most of 5th grade. Good 'ol Wendy's! We would come here and get me chicken nugget and sometimes a frosty and then we would go get they boys food at mcdonalds and let them play on the play place. That's the Junior High fields. This is where my practices for soccer always were. Yeah, I played sports when I was a kid. Provo! How I've missed you! The bi pole thing is outside Provo Towne Centre. The name always bugged me as a kid, and still does, cause that's not how the average american would spell it. But we took a christmas card picture here a long time ago so I kinda tried to recreate it. The big nice building is the Provo Tabernacle. I used to sing here and man those dresses were hideous. Plus there was always a nativity here at christmas when I was little. Los 3 Amigos! They had some of the best mexican food and they had a jukebox and Dad always let me pick songs! Los Hermanos was really good, I only remember eating there once or twice but I know it was good, plus I relly likes that the sign was pink. Mom liked an art store that was somewhere by Los Hermanos but I couldn't find it. Heritage has good memories in my heart. I stayed there for EFY in 2007. I had so many things happen to me, good and not so good. You gotta love the BYU creamery, I couldn't find the other one but it is so good! The only milk i'll drink is their chocolate milk. And their ice cream is way good. I was gonna stop but there wasn't a parking spot. This museum is way cool, I went here on a couple field trips and one time my mom got to come with me! Love the stadium, I really want to go to a game. I remember some of the places we used to park too. We used to come to this America First A LOT! I knew right where it was. The RC Willey is where we bought our Lazy Boy chair that we still have. When the Krispy Kreme first opened we were so excited, we used to take the boys there to let them watch the doughnuts get made-they were so entertained. Where the missionary mall is there used to be a Mommy and Me store. And there was a Soup and Salad, it was so yummy-sure miss it. And this RC Willey is where we bought my Aunt Lisa's banana chair and when I would go to her dorm I used to play in it forever.
