It’s hard for me to believe that we’ve been in school long enough this year to justify a break. It’s been a busy 6 weeks, but I was much looking forward to this long weekend especially when I saw that the weather was going to be very cooperative. The kids started the break with a “late” movie & popcorn night. On Thursday we headed down south to Utah County and we all know what that means: IKEA. Well, actually that wasn’t our final destination but I had to take advantage of the proximity. I kept the shopping trip short so we could move on down to pick up Dave from work and then go to Hee Haw Farms. It was chilly (only according to me apparently), but I love, love taking pictures of the kiddos in this beautiful weather and colors so prepare yourself! It was a fun outing for everyone!
There were lots of activities and while the boys were off at the corn maze, Audra, Eli and I went and visited the animals. It made Audra’s day that she was able to go right into the animal pens and attempt to catch the baby piggies. Her favorite pigs were the “cow” pigs, or the black & white ones.
Eli could only take so much stroller time (here’s an idea: START WALKING) so luckily they had a pen full of chicken feed (corn) that he crawled around in. He also loved picking it up and watching it drop. Just wish it wasn’t so dusty and dirty! And it may have attempted to eat some, but I was quick to fish it out – gross!!
And we were lucky enough to spend the day together on Friday. Adobe urged its employees to volunteer at the Special Olympics so we headed up to the U as a family to see what we could do to help. We were “fans in the stands” at the bocci ball tournament. We went from not knowing how to play to the kids wanting to get a bocci ball set.
It was a great weekend!
