We have had a glorious August playing with family! My sister took us to this fun splash park that had a playground next to it. The splash park was plenty big for a lot of children to run around and then when they were watered-out, they could run over to the playgound. It was heaven for kids, AND parents!Evie & Maddie had so much fun running around together.
I came upon James sitting over a water spout and this is the shot I got!Another day, we went to the children’s museum with all the cousins and grandma & grandpa. Here’s grandpa building up a wall, and letting the kids knock it over. Such a great grandpa!J, Emi, Maddie & Evie working in the construction area.This shoot what where you put in a ball and air would draw it up into the tubes and you could watch it go around and around. I think Evelyn did this about a hundred times! Evie’s cousin J is so good to her. He made sure she was okay in playing with everything.Here’s our future news anchor! James!Another day we went to the Davis County Fair. The kids all got a balloon animal. You can see the parrot’s on their shoulders and Evie got an elephant. This was the highlight of the day for everyone! The water balls! You get inside, and just roll around, jump, or lay there. I was so surprised at how much Evelyn enjoyed playing in there. I was standing by just in case she freaked out, but she didn’t at all and just played around and around. She had a “Ball”!This miniature horse was the only animal Evie dared to touch in the petting zoo at the fair. I think she was more comfortable with it because this summer she has been riding horses, and so even though it was the same size as another animal in there, because it was a “horse” she knew she liked it. The very last activity was that each child got to pick a ride. Evie & Jakey went on a bounce-house slide a few times, and then this boat ride. They each chose their boat, and after 1 turn around Evie realized that jake was in a pink boat, and she wanted a pink boat. She screamed and cried the rest of the ride. Luckily no other children were in the ride with them and luckily she didn’t try to stand up or get out. It was a fun, and fabulous and long day at the fair!It was so sad to have a family of cousins go home, and the others start school…but, what a fun summer with them!
