On Thursday, Lillie and I spontaneously decided to go to Idaho for the weekend. Everyone had a ton of fun. On Friday, we went to Sandy Downs, along with cousins Braeburn and Granny Smith. All the kids had fun jumping off the steep side of the sand dune. Ben was somewhat hesitant at first, but he quickly got the hang of it. Dan’s favorite part was sliding down the sand feet first on his belly, flipping his arms and legs like a beached sea turtle.
Saturday afternoon, the family went to Green Canyon Hot Springs, which was another hit with the kids (and parents!) Leslie came too. Daniel is a little waterbug like his brother. He’d lift his feet off the pool bottom so he was floating with his water wings, and just laugh and laugh. He also got a kick out of half running/half falling down the steps into the pool and landing in the water. Ben enjoyed jumping off the side of the pool, trying to make a splash as big as the “big boys” jumping off the diving board in the deep end. He did much better once we reminded him that he needed to plug his nose, not his ears!
In between activities, the boys played with their cousins on Crabapple farm, petting the goats, sheep, cats, etc. The weather was perfect. Only a slight breeze most of the time! Lillie took an iMovie tutorial from Braeburn, so perhaps viewers will be able to watch video of the weekend fun soon.
