That afternoon we went to this really nice Rec Center with a pool - it has a "kiddie" area that is from 0-3 feet deep. There is a playground thingy in the middle and a big waterslide, too. Emmy loved it - I loved looking at her in her cute swimsuit (thanks rebecca!). Jonas wasn't so sure about it and waited about 10 minutes before deciding to come in the pool. Miles loved it. Loved it. It was a really fun time!
Sunday:Sunday was church of course. This is one of my favorite dresses - I found it at the Hand-Me-Down store in town. Love it - love it more with Emmy in it.
The rest of the afternoon was spent with Miles making a mess of his yogurt lunch,
We had Baked Pancakes for breakfast - so yummy. Jonas loved it - or at least loved the powdered sugar.
The rest of the day was very rainy and even hail-y. So we drove to Cabella's and the kids loved looking at the giant aquarium tanks and all the "stuffed" animals they have. Plus the shooting-range was entertaining. It's actually a fun store. More like a museum for our family - a free one at that. Perfect.
Then we went to Ikea! I haven't been since it's opened in Utah. I Love that store. But I was depressed upon leaving as I couldn't really buy anything that I really wanted. Which is really sad because that store is a relatively cheap store. Oh well, maybe next time?
Our last day. And, of course, it was beautiful. Sunny and warm. Ben and I were able to get out and play some tennis in the morning while Emmy napped and my dad watched the boys. Ben beat me 6-5. Pretty good for a girl, huh? Pretty bad for a boy, huh? Haha, kidding.
Then we took the kids to the park before we journeyed back home. And what kid doesn't have fun at the park?
Jonas does. Even if he was referred to as a girl while there.
And Miles does. The last 2 pictures are of the "ice-cream stand" that Miles invented. He had 2 piles - one pile of pennies and one pile of ice-cream. The customer would come up and Miles would give him a penny (right, he is suppose to collect money - not a very good business technique) and then give him an ice-cream. Yum. I got chocolate. Lucky me.
Our trips always end this way: as we drive back in the car and I have to listen to either Jonas whining or Emmy crying, I always think, "Was it worth it?" Then I look at my pictures and am reminded that, yes, indeed, it was very, very worth it. Definitely.
