Warning: lots of pictures. 21 to be exact.
So, I went to upload pictures from our cameras a few days ago since Miriam wanted the ones I took of her & Sidney, and I discovered that I had pictures from Easter still on there. Yup, hadn't gotten around to uploading pictures for the entire months of April, May, and June. It's been busy - I got a job! That's a whole other post. Anyhow, I'm going to be a good girl and blog about our latest fun adventure, and maybe catch up on some other stuff in my spare time (ha!).
So, Katy turned 5 on Sunday, June 3rd (another post I should do...). We planned on taking the kids to Oaks Park the day before as her big birthday thing (i.e. instead of doing a party). That morning she woke up with a fever and owie ear, head, and throat, so I took her to the doctor instead, and we promised we'd take them soon. In the summer they have b1g1 on Tuesdays, so we knew we'd go on one of those. When Miriam decided to come visit us before moving to Wyoming (sad!), we decided to go with her and Sidney!
The day was overcast, drizzling a little, with at least 3 or 4 sudden downpours that lasted a few minutes each. Other than the first time when the boys were stuck on the Spider, we were pretty successful at just going undercover for a bit. And because of this less than ideal weather, the park was pretty empty! It was awesome!
Time for the pictures:
Part 2 of Oaks Park, where I see my other children. See, when we first got there we all went on the carousel. Then the boys wanted to do a big kid ride, so Dan stayed with them while Miriam and I took Katy, Sidney, and Nathan on little rides. After the boys got soaked on the Spider, they ended up going roller skating (it's included in the bracelet price) for over 2 hours! Nope, I don't have any pictures of that. And that's why I don't have any pictures of the boys from the first part.
Also, yes, Katy and David are the only people on that ride. The park got even more empty as the night wore on, and we could often just walk onto a ride. It was awesome!
I don't know that we would have had anywhere near that much fun if we'd gone on June 2nd like originally planned. It was fun to be there with Aunt Miriam and Sidney! And awesome to have so few people there! So Katy, sorry you had an ear infection the day before your birthday, but it turned out great!
