Fun Fridays...

I have started "fun Friday's" with Kyah and Jaxon. It is so fun to get out with them and Madi and see different things. This week they didn't come on Friday so we had to go on Wednesday. We went into down town to the Church History Museum. On the main floor it has some of the early history of the church. They have beds that replicate the bunks you would find in a ship that some of the early saints came to America on. I asked Jaxon if he liked it and what he would think of trading his bed for that. He was all for it! :D
Madi even climbed in the bunk...
Cute Kyah in the bunks...They have a special exhibit for the kids right now to celebrate being a child of God. Everything is hands on and was so much fun for the kids. We spent two or three hours there. Poor Madi was so super tired and had a hard time. On top of being tired she has pretty bad allergies and all the flowers around there were making them crazy. Her eyes were red and puffy the whole day.
she did finally crack a few smiles when she saw herself. She LOVES to look at herself whether it's in a mirror or in a picture. It is so cute to see.
Madi LOVES kisses. She gives herself kisses in the mirror when she sees herself. My new favorite thing that she does is when Derrick and I kiss, she will blow air kisses letting us know she wants kisses too! It is the cutest thing ever!
So happy...
Madi did finally give up and fell asleep...
One of the activities they had for the kids was to make a stained glass window. They had a big one the kids could make and then they had vellum "windows" that they could color and put up to a light board. Kyah loved this activity and colored several.
I LOVE this picture of Jaxon. He is such a sweet, thoughtful boy and such a handful! :D He is full of energy and loves to learn new things. That is one of the things I like best about my time with him. Hopefully he will learn something from me. :D
After the museum we met up with Derrick for a little picnic. Then we headed to the conference center for a tour. They were such troopers. Poor Kyah was worn out. She was tired of walking so we took a little rest before we started the tour.
At the end of the tour they take you to the gardens on the roof. It is so beautiful and I would love to be able to just be there and look and not be rushed through on a tour. Maybe someday but right now it is only open for tours. Our tour guide took a picture of us at the end. (Notice Madi and Kyah. Madi was nice enough to share her stroller when Kyah couldn't go anymore.) Jaxon and Kyah are so sweet to Madi.I think we had a great time and the kids weren't ready to go home. We are going to go back another time and see some more. I really wore them out... Jaxon does NOT take naps but...
This is how they looked by the time we got home. :D
