A Visit From Grandpa - Day 2

Friday was the opposite of Thursday. While Thursday was nice and relaxing, Friday was go, go, go. We decided to start the day at Wheeler Farm. I guess they were having some special activities that day, so it was PACKED. There were a ton of people.

The kids got a free prize for drawing a picture on the sidewalk. Kenyon was thrilled when his free prize was a parasauralophus. Mara got to have her picture taken with Cinderella. She said, "Princess was nice to me!" How sweet is that?
Then the boys totally wasted a dollar each going through the Spiderman obstacle course. They got one trip through and it took them all of about 20 seconds to get through it. I hadn't realized how quick it would be, and was mad that they charged us a dollar for that, so I sent the kids through again. The lady taking the taking the tickets gave me a look, but she didn't say anything. It was still nowhere near worth a dollar, but at least they got 40 seconds of fun instead of 20. What a rip-off!

When we finished there, we came home and ate a quick lunch. Then it was off the the mountains for some hiking and a waterfall. We love going to the waterfall. The kids had a blast, and the spray from the waterfall kept us cool.

Once we were done there it was back to get cleaned up and rush off again to dinner. By the time we got back I think everone was pretty worn out, but we had a great time.
