I took my kids and headed out to Midway last Wednesday. We stayed until Monday so we could make it home for Jonas' first baseball game. We did a lot of fun things:
Like the slip 'n slide. Even though Miles broke it, it still worked out okay as we just set the hose directly on the slide (probably like in the old-fashioned days when I did it!).
I know my parents' house is cold (due to my dad), but I didn't remember it being this cold. It was cold:
On Saturday we went on a hike (my dad stayed home) to Stuart Falls in the Provo Canyon. It was a pretty great hike and super good for kids, too. A 4-mile round-trip hike just takes sooooo much longer with kids; I keep forgetting that.
I didn't get a single picture of my dad driving around the kids in his Polaris Ranger thingy. The boys went on a few good, long rides and enjoyed it. But I'm still pretty sure my dad enjoys it the most! He loves it.
But swimming was "the best" as Jonas just told me. I took the kids sometimes twice a day. And I had to split them up - usually it was the boys and then the girls. The last day I took the 3 oldest kids (in the morning and in the evening) and then just Lucy once. That was super fun and nice just going with Lucy.
It was a great trip - only soured by the fact that Ben wasn't with us.
Hopefully we can get back up there again this summer - all of us!
