Fountains & Fun

Yesterday I met up with some other moms from church to let our kids play in the Fountains at the Gateway in Salt Lake.  When we got there, it was just past noon, and come to find out there was a Jr. High orchestra concert going on.  Really?  So all of our kids ran wild for an HOUR and I was ready to go by then.  The fountains finally turned on and Chandler was ecstatic.  Rowan took a little bit to warm up to them but was soon playing in them too. 

Not so sure about this....

I would have liked to be Rowan at this point.  I was sooo hot and sweaty that I was envying all those little kids in the fountains.


After the fountains, we picked up Marshall for lunch, grabbed some Sonic and headed to Liberty Park to have a picnic

Picnic

With Marsh's new job, he doesn't get home until 7:15 every evening, so if I don't have something planned, or if we don't get out - we all go stir crazy.  We've been going to the summer movies every Wednesday, and that's been a big hit.  Both the boys are so good as long as they have a snack and drink.  It's crazy to think that they'll sit still for 90+ minutes.  Other things we've been doing:  Thanksgiving Point, Playdates, and filling up our little pool out back.  If anyone has any other ideas or activities, I'd love to hear them.  (Oh and I still have yet to post our week in Idaho and pictures from Geoff's wedding.  But I have a ton of pictures and blogger has been weird about uploading.  Maybe in the next few days.)

Liberty park has the streams of the canyons in the middle that the boys can play in. There is also the zoo and heritage park. Maybe we can do heritage park when I come down if you don't have to much to do.

Have you tried taking the boys to Story Time at the Lehi Library? Also, we sometimes just wander around Cabela's. Or South Towne Mall has a fun little dinosaur place. I'm trying to think of indoor things bcs it's too hot outside!! It was fun at the Gateway - I'm glad you guys came!
