Hi Luvs....It's been a whirlwind this week with all our activities. I'm hoping DH can take the kids somewhere today for a few hours so I can do some cleaning and laundry and grocery shopping. I have company coming tomorrow and don't want my house to be a wreck. I did manage to get up early one morning and clean my carpets.
I don't know when the last time I posted was, but here's a rundown of what's been happening.
Monday: Movie-The Mummy then The Aviary (bird sanctuary) the kids had a blast and loved feeding the ducks and peacocks right from their hands. Ate supper at Spagetti Factory.(I saw on the placemat that they have one where you live too Luvs! Have you ever been? They have the best bread. mmmm)
Tuesday: Movie-Journey to the Center of the Earth in 3D then to Thanksgiving Pointe which has a farm where the kids could feed the animals from their hands including our favorite....the alpaca. They had horse rides too. They have a huge garden area so we treked thru it to a waterfall. Everyone was hungry so we skipped the dinosaur museum and went to an ice creamery for supper and had blt's, burgers and cheesy fries with ice cream for dessert.
Wednesday: Antelope Island. Long drive, but we saw herds of buffalo and antelope. There is an old ranch there with lots of buildings full of antiques so you can see how it was in the 1800's. The kids were fascinated by the straw mattresses. It's very hands on so they were digging thru trunks and exploring cold cellers and the spring house and running the trails. They managed to scare up a little deer. They had fake steer there for them to try to learn to lasso. We had a good day.
Thursday? Lagoon (an amusement park) An all day affair with rides and food and fun. Everyone but me is still asleep. We were wiped out. ha
Today we were going to try to fly kites, but it's raining. Maybe DH can take the kids to the $1 movie to see Iron Man while I get some things done here. And we have a whole other week of fun planned! It might just kill us! ha
I see you have something pretty for me to look at over on the Gallery. I'm off to check it out. What have you been up to this week? I dreamed about you and your DH last night (tell him I said hi btw). We were all at a restaurant and we were eating alfresco on the porch at a long table with some other people. You were wearing those really dark glasses they give you at the eye dr, but I can't remember what you told me you'd done to your eyes. You were having me write your email addy on napkins to give out to the people at our table. ha Dreams are so funny.
I'm off to peek at your projects. ~Anj
