Rock a bye baby!

We went to see our friends baby today! Oh boy! (rather girl)
Every time I see a baby I still can't wrap my head around the theory!
A human grows inside you, you're pregnant and then all of the sudden one day you are holding that human!
And Millie was in heaven! The girl LOVES babies!

LAGOON part 3 (face painting)

Eliza wanted her face painted... Tiffany said ok and Eliza was ready to go! I said to Tiffany, "wow, you are a WAY nicer mom than I am!" I didn't really feel like $10 was worth it.
Millie was VERY interested in the face painting and watching every move!

SOo... Eliza was finished and we were ready for some more rides. I turned around to Grab Millie and where was she?? Up in the chair ready for her face paint!

I was like... Ok we'll do a little something. The lady suggested a rainbow. "Rainbows are a good idea" I said. Anytime you ask Millie what color something is she replies, "rainbow!"

So we did a Rainbow ($4) total rip off! The nice lady pulled out her mirror and said "do you like it?" Millie scowled and said "NO" while wiping it off!

Millie opened the book, pointed to the tiger and slammed the book shut! My sister Tiffany told me that she was pointing to the tiger on the sign telling her that is what she wanted....So I guess that is what she thought she was getting when we were giving her the stupid rainbow! :)

The lady held up the mirror and said " is this what you wanted?" Millie, with joy replied, "YA, I like it!"

Eliza and Millie both were in heaven the rest of the time and wanted me to take pictures and show them!

Tiffany loved to remind me the rest of the day how she was a "way nicer mom than me!" LOL! The things we do to make our kids happy!
Funny girl Eliza so statue like!
Eliza looked at herself for about 20 min!

Millie waiting for her turn!

The "Rainbow"

" I like it!"

Holding so still!


Face painted cousins!

The boys having a really good attitude
about riding the carousel with Millie!

LAGOON part 2 (cooling off)

LAGOON part 1

We went to lagoon the other day! I can honestly say that I have not been to lagoon since I was about 16.
I have put it off for a long time on purpose!

 Jake ALWAYS wants to go but I feel like it is totally white trash and I didn't really want to go spend any amount of time there.

I must say I was actually surprised at how fun and NON-CROWDED it was! We didn't wait in line at all. The bigger rides for the boys and Brad were only about a 5-10 min wait!

It helped that we went on a Tuesday in the middle of the day! We will totally go again!
Millie loved the rides!

Jake, Eliza, & Solomon.

Xander crammed himself into this ride so Millie would not have to ride alone!

Millie loved this ride for some reason!
She wanted to go again, and again!

Millie and Sollie

LOL, LOL, LOL!! Please blow this photo up and look at my
darling sister and her friend SMASHING poor LITTLE Sollie's HEAD with THEIR elbows!!

The kid crew!

Liberty Park! WATER PARK part 2

Millie and Jack

The boys obviously "full of it!"

Climbing the waterfall!

swim, swim!
If I had thought about it I would have brought all of our swimming stuff with us to feed the ducks. Liberty Park also has a huge place to play in water called the 7 canyons. It is little recreations of Utah's canyons! I LOVE it! It's fun and easy for the babies to play in, but the bigger kids also love it!

So we improvised and went in our shorts:)

Liberty Park! DUCKS part 1

They have been working on cleaning up Liberty Park pond from the oil leak FOREVER! I drove by the other day and it was back in action! They re-modeled it so nice, with bridges, benches, flowers and ducks that don't take your bread :( kind of a bummer!

Seriously, they just float out in the middle and don't care that you have yummy homemade bread that you baked just for them!

Maybe they aren't starved yet so they don't know that your supposed to come eat the bread from the kids.

They should take a lesson from the ducks at Sugar House park that ATTACK you for your bread! If these ducks don't get it together, I will be baking for the Sugar House ducks from now on! ;)

With that being said, the kids still had a great time!



The choices are endless!

Let's eat!

Open wide!

They built a Top It on our walking path so we are enjoying that right now! In my opinion it really is a BIG fat RIP off!
I just got a little swirl to try it out with a few toppings and it came to $4.73!! ARE you KIDDING me!?
Oh well, it will be fun a few times this summer! I'm really not sure how they stay in business!?
