That kid knows where he is

I like to think that I have a good sense of direction.  I also like to think that I am very aware of my surroundings and what is going on around me.  The older T gets, the more I realize that he has these same traits. 

For example, he goes to a place once and he know where it is and what it's called.  True story.  When we drive along I-15 he knows what is off the exits if we have been there before.  So let's start down south and we will work our way north towards Salt Lake City. 


As we drive North on I-15, T knows that off of the American Fork Main Street Exit, there is a Target there.  He loves Target, we all do. We keep on going north to the Lehi Main Street exit and he points out the McDonald's there.  He loves the ice cream and the play place there.  The next exit is just houses, but he know that his friend Linds lives there.  Now we go to the Highland/Alpine (Thanksgiving Point) exit.   Now, this is a busy one because he points out the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point, the fishies at Cabela's and the drinks we get at the Maverik gas station, ha!  The next exit is 14600 S in Draper.  He always says Teresa's house and points up the mountain where his cousins live.  The next exit is Ikea on Bangerter Highway.  He always says Ikea with excitement because he knows there is free food there!  Every Tuesdays kids eat free!  We go and you should go too.  We keep going North, and in between the 12300 and 11400 South exits is Costco.  He also like Costco because of the food samples. Then we get to 10600 South where he knows it's the mall and we shop there, ha!

Now how funny is this?!  T could probably get you around this area of town pretty well.  He obviously knows where all of the cool stuff is in our neighborhood, his cousins and his grand parents.  He likes to point out the pools and parks the best.  He is an awesome kid and his wold might change when the baby comes next week.  Yes, next week baby #2 will be here.
