Lagoon - UEA break

For our UEA - fall break we went to Lagoon on Friday. Shelly and Mark's friends, Jeff, Julie , and Anna Wrigley went with us. Jake's favorite was the Merry-go-round. At the end of the night the big kids were going on the roller coasters and Jacob and I kept going on the Merry-go-round, the attendant didn't make us get off. We got to stay on and keep riding since there wasn't much of a line. He kept on saying up and down and motioning around. He is still talking about the rides. All of the kids rides were the same, up and down, and round and round, but Jacob loved them.

Anna Wrigley is in the pink shirt. She looks like she could be one of our kids.

We took sandwiches and plenty of snacks for both of our meals in the park.

Shelly, Mark, Sammi and Joe on the Jet Star II.

The big kids loved the new Wicked rollercoaster. We stayed the night at the campground, so we got to stay at the park until closing. We were almost there from opening until closing, Dad would be proud! We had such a great time and will plan that trip again. Next time, we might stay at Cherry Hill, since we are trying to relive all of our childhood memories.

Happy 10th Birthday Samantha - Oct. 12

What a lucky girl, Samantha got a new bike at our house and her Mom's house! She is growing so much that she was way to big for her old bike. She has loved riding around the neighborhood and is learning how to use her gears on our hills. The kids love to go to the church parking lot to ride bikes.

For part of Sammi's celebration we went to the Scarecrow Festival at Thanksgiving point.

Sammi loved the rock climbing wall and she made it all the way to the top.

We got to go over to Farm country. We loved seeing the animals and riding on the ponies.

Jacob even rode the pony. In the summer, we went to This is the Place Monument and he cried and wanted off of the pony, so we weren't sure if he would do it, but he did great.

There were fun pedal carts that they loved to ride.

There were so many activities to do. We were there about four hours and we only did about 2/3 of the activities. We had such a fun day.

A few more butterfly photos

I had a few more cute pictures
of the butterflies.

Have you ever heard of butterfly kisses?

"Is he still up there? I can't see him."

"Oh, there he is!"

HeeHaw farms

I took my kindergarten class on a field trip to Heehaw Farms in Pleasant Grove. Jacob and Shelly (or Nan as Jacob calls her) came with. Jacob loved watching the pigs and feeding the horses . There is a great big slide that is built on the giant hay bails. It is about 15 - 20 feet tall. It is so fun. Jacob didn't want to go on it this year, but he did enjoy the other bumpy slide. They got to pick their own pumpkins from the pumpkin patch. He had a fun time and it was fun to have them there even though I didn't really get to hang out with them a lot, because I was trying to be a responsible teacher.
