Happy Hollow

No School!

I asked what the kids they wanted to do today and both said they wanted to go to Happy Hollow.  So off we went.  I know.  I know.  What a nice mommy I am.  ;o)

We met up with our friends, the Crawford family, and had a blast.  It amazes me how well all the kids get along and how much they all like playing with each other.  It was such an enjoyable day!

The park was super crowded because of the nice weather and it being a holiday so we found ourselves visiting spots we wouldn't normally visit.  Honestly, the kids played on the copper statues at the front of the park for about 20 minutes, I think the only reason we moved on is because they started getting hungry and we decided to go in and find a place to eat lunch.

We watched the puppet show, The Frog Prince.

Lincoln and Kimmy rode the Frog Hopper.

Then everyone but the littles rode on the Swings.

They occupied themselves on the BIG playground for quite awhile.  And if keeping track of four kids on a three level playing structure filled with lots and lots of other kids isn't stressful I don't know what is.  I am just glad Austin decided to take a nap in the stroller at that less moving kiddo to keep track of.  Haha!

We moved on from there and planned to go visit the animals and Merry Go Round, with a brief stop at the restrooms.  The kids decided we needed the map to find our way.  It was so cute.  They kept trying to take us to the farthest bathrooms.

Little Austin is so cute with the animals.  He loves them so much, any animal it doesn't matter.  He went right in to the petting area and walked right up to a goat.  No fear.  I am going to have to keep a close eye on him.

Lots of fun today.  We actually accomplished everything on Payton and Lincoln's to do list, which also included putting together puzzles and playing Yahtzee for Family Home Evening.  It was really fun just spending time with the kids and not having to worry about being anywhere or getting anything ready.  Hope they had as much fun as I did.
