The kids and Ben had an awesome tour and truly loved it - kids included. We then went to Judd's for lunch - an "old-fashioned" store with old candy, fun soda flavors, ice cream, sandwiches, etc. We ate some yummy things and then were pretty much on our way home (after we had to go back to the house and fold the towels that were drying in the dryer . . . :).
We had a fine drive home and all was well when we got here. Our dogs were thrilled to see us. :)
Lucy did advance in her swimming skills quite a bit and earned "The Most Improved Swimmer" award:
Of course I don't have pictures of all the tantrums, fights, cryings, eye-rollings, etc. that happened on this trip. But, trust me, they did happen! A LOT. But it still was a wonderful vacation nonetheless!
