I guess you could say our neighbor kids have, literally, loved them to death(sad, I know). They brought the remaining duck over for a visit and my kids were happy hanging out with it for a moment and perhaps loved it a bit too much as well.RODEOS
Next up were a couple of Rodeos: Fiesta Days in Spanish Fork on Monday night, and The Days of 47,on Tuesday night. Our seats at the Fiesta Days rodeo were right over the chutes. It was awesome to watch and hear the cowboys gear up for their event and have a bit of dirt hit your shoulder as the horses and bulls bucked their way out into the arena.
After the Capital we headed to the Trax station to take a ride in the Free Zone and headed over to the city library, which I had not visited yet. Drew's face will give you an idea of how happy he was to be riding the Trax train.We went up to the roof of the library to look out over the city. There were great places to sit down and some gardens that they keep up there..... Who knew?
We had a great time and the only thing we had to pay for that day was our lunch at Hires Big H and the $300 in gas for our 40 minute drive.
My Mom took us over to the gardens at the college where the kids ran around and we took some pictures.
On Saturday night and after a fun BBQ, Jake showed us all a great time. He has his pilot's license and reserved a plane for a couple of hours. He was nice enough to take us up for a little flight over Idaho. He even gave us a chance to try flying, which made me way too nervous.
Jake and I went up together and then he took Drew and Lo up together. Lo was A LOT braver than I was when it came to try flying the plane-he loved it. They said that Drew kept asking for his turn to try flying the plane. Notice Drew's cute little head peaking out behind Lo and Jake.
He looked so cute and smooth with his shades and head set. We all had such a fun time. I did get a bit sick right before we landed, but other than that I was good to go. Jake flew us over our house and my mom said that if we could have seen her, she was waving at us in our front yard. It was really fun time.
I got a couple shots of the plane as Jake took off with Lo and Drew. Thanks for a fun flight Jake!
