Anniversary Weekend - Part 2

On Saturday, we loaded up the car again and made our way to Austin. Our day begin with breakfast at a place that claims to have Minnesota's largest donuts. They were definitely the largest donuts we had ever seen....and oh so good!

After filling up on sugar, it was time to visit the SPAM museum.

Hormel's Corporate Headquarters are in Austin and they sure do love their SPAM there.

The guy at the admission desk said that posing with Spammie was the thing to do! He practically made us put Karter on top of him for the picture.

We had to wait a little bit for our tour to begin, there was a bus load of Hawaiians that had gotten there before us. SPAM is extremely popular in Hawaii, so apparently they have a lot of Hawaiian visitors each year.

All the cans are kind of mesmerizing!

That is a lot of SPAM!!

Kristoffer LOVES history, so he was in heaven reading everything...Karter didn't enjoy it quite as much.

He did have fun though! We spent two hours looks around and he was great the whole time.

Karter and Mommy had fun pretending to be workers on the assembly line.

But then things turned serious! Kristoffer and I had a "friendly" competition to see who could fill and pack 6 cans of SPAM faster.

I'm proud to say that I can pack SPAM 30 seconds faster than my husband! What an honor...

Karter was eager to try to eat the SPAM, until it was actually time to get a taste. We will not be serving SPAM at our house anytime soon, it made him shudder and he spit it out.

We had such a fun time together, we decided to do something we never do...buy t-shirts! Now we can proudly display our support for SPAM. It was a great day with my favorite boys!

I think half of the world had the same reaction as Karter did the first time they tried SPAM.
