Fun Day

Today is the last week before school starts. This morning, my kids informed me that there were two things on our "Summer List" that we have not done yet. 1. Go the Olympic Fountain 2. The zoo. It is too hot to go the the zoo, so I talked them into going there in the fall. The animals are more active when it is cooler anyway.
So, today we went to the Olympic Fountain at the Gateway. If you live in Utah and have not done it, I would recommend you do so. I just put my kids in their swim suits before we left, brought towels and when we got there, let them at it. They ran in and out of the sprays of water for over an hour. It is better than the swimming pool because I didn't have to worry about anyone drowning. I was able to just sit there under an umbrella and watch them have a ton of fun. Afterwards, we got some Ben and Jerry's ice cream and came home. It was a GREAT outing.

Now, currently, toothsome #1 is at Scouts. Once he gets home, we are having a dinner of leftovers before toothsome #1 has his first day of a week-long soccer camp from 6-8 pm. It looks like we are going to have a great last week of summer.
Oh and I am posting a picture of toothsome #1 from his baptism. Wow!
