Friday, we went to take a ride on Thomas the train. It was part of Trey's birthday. His birthday isn't until June 7th, but Thomas is only in town memorial day weekend. So his party was a little early. Since riding on Thomas is really expensive (at least to me) I told him he could pick two friends as long as one of them was his brother. He picked Waylon for his other friend. The boys thought it was great!
They each picked their favorite train to stand by for this photo. It cracks me up that Trey's favorite train is Rosie.
after riding the train and seeing all the other adventures in the land of Sodor, we headed over to the Dairy Keen in Heber City. It was really fun they have tables set up like trains for the little ones. They also had such a fancy drink selection my boys were in heaven. They chose peach sprite and raspberry sprite.
I also surprised my kids with a trip to St. George. I woke them up at 6 a.m and told them to get in the car. When they discovered we were going to St George and staying in the Hurricane house they were so excited.
PJ was a little afraid of the water which made me happy. I was concerned before we got there about him being too brave.
My kids also enjoyed taking advantage of their own private movie theater, located in the home we stayed in. I have to say I enjoyed it too. It is kind of funny that when we go on vacation to st George we stay in a bigger, fancier home than we live in every day. However, I think that is half the fun for my kids.
Also, on the way home we stopped to eat lunch. It was Carlene and Kyle and I with 6 kids. Landan couldn't come with us because of work. Well, our waitress totally thought we were a polygamist family. She kept making strange comments and then my favorite one of the day " I can't imagine what it is like for you two women to fix dinner for this crew every night"
good times were had by all. My kids were not happy campers this morning when I informed them that the fun is over and I made them do their jobs and summer school work.
