Last Days of Summer

As we started our last week (& a half) of our summer break, I decided we should go out ‘with a bang’! We crammed our last days full & had a lot of fun!

 

Monday

We went to the state capitol & walked around looking at the building. (Also, I think this could work as a band photo for their album!)

We climbed all 127 steps to the top to see the Gold Man (I ‘may’ have had to carry Audrey for the last half of the stairs, because she thought it was going to be scary at the top)

We went to visit Grandpa at work! The kids had fun climbing on the various pieces of machinery that weren’t being used!

They had a great time playing in the piles of dirt! They came home filthy, so I think it was a successful day!

Future workers at my dad’s business??? Perhaps not – Ezra said, “No, because there aren’t any animals” and Audrey said, “No, because I’m gong to be a princess & wear a pretty dress & I would get dirty” It was still a fun morning, though!

Friday

I forgot to take a picture, but we had pizza & a movie! The kids finally got to watch Zootopia, which they’d been wanting to watch all summer!

Saturday

It isn’t summer without a trip to the fair! (At least that’s what my kids think!)
