This was Jack's first time on a merry-go-round and he LOVED it. He laughed, bounced and smiled the entire time. It was so much fun watching his excitement. He is at such a fun age--discovering so many new things!
Here is a picture of me with all the kids on the merry-go-round.
Hanna and Joe had fun with the chickens again.
Here's a really funny one of the kids--check out the "expression of excitement" on Jack's face. As you can see, this was one of the highlights of the day for him:-)!
Of course, Jamie and the kids had the most fun "mining for rocks"! This was truly their highlight and they all had fun with this. Jack and I just watched and part of the time he had fun playing with a little pile of sand and gems we put on the bench in front of him. Jack has been making this hilarious face lately--I managed to capture it in one of the pictures I took--it is priceless!! He was really tired by the end of this as you can see by the look on his face:-). He was such a good sport the whole day. It was really, really hot! Despite the heat we had a great time. Everyone was happy and it was just a fun family day together. I got lots more pictures too, but you'll have to wait for those on my homeschool blog later this week:-). We finished our day off with a very yummy dinner at The Cheesecake Factory--my pic:-)! I can't wait for our next day trip--the Science Museum in Augusta. We hope to get a few more day trips and one long weekend trip in before Jesse is here and we have to slow down for just a bit. I love being able to do so many fun things with our family and am thankful for every memory we make together.
