They were up and ready to go before 7am, silly excited kids! :)
It was a long and hot 7 hour trip, but once again my kids proved to be stellar travelers. They played games, read books, looked for license plates from different states (they had a map of the US that they would color in each state they saw on a license), and got to watch a movie each way. We had lots of good conversation and laughs. They are lots of fun, those kids of ours!
We arrived at aunt Michelle's and the kids had fun exploring the new house and them spent the evening running thru the sprinklers. A nice way to cool off and end a long day of travel!
Evelyn loved this window in the stairwell!
They sure do love their Aunt Michelle!
They also enjoyed meeting Izzye, the new kitten of the house
Morning cartoons on a giant bean bag... awesomeness! They loved it!
Cousins ready to hit the water park and beat the 105+ degree heat (yes it was that hot!)
They love their cousin Abby. She is so great and patient with them! I am a lucky auntie!
Yay for cool water slides!
Matthew was not the least bit nervous about going down for the first time... and he loved it!
Love these two!
The little kids started "racing" the big kids down the slide. Curtis and Abby would go down the enclosed tube slide and Evelyn and Matthew would head down the open yellow one. They had the best time!
This. Not a fun moment for my boy. I heard a couple of loud bangs as he was heading down the slide and wondered if that might be my boy kinda getting squirlly. And this how he came around the final corner. :( Sadly he said he flipped while going around a turn and hit his head, too. Poor buddy! He was quite upset for about 5 minutes but then asked if he could go again! That's my boy!!
Ice cream afterwards was a big hit!
Curtis picked out a lego set to do with Matthew. Matthew so enjoyed time with his big cousin!
It was so hot, but we ventured to downtown Lewiston for dinner and to walk around a bit.
This piano is just outside awaiting anyone who wants to play!
They sure do love their Abby!
My silly sweet kids
I love them!
It was practically 80 degrees by 9am on Sunday so we headed to the park to run thru the fountain and play in the park a bit before it got any warmer. Then we pretty much were inside for the day. We made the most of it, tho, playing UNO, watching NASCAR and watching the movie UP!
Fun at the park!
We came home Monday tired from the heat and our fun adventured but so thankful for my sister opening up her home to us! The kids are already talking about next year! :) Thanks, Shell!
