We got ready and headed into town for a little fun at the City Center, near the library. There is a splash pad and fun water features, but there is also the carousel, which Aylabelle loves! My girls had never ridden a carousel. I should not admit that! There isn't one in Logan and when you go to the county fair, the carousel is the least exciting ride. So, I was excited to share that with them. Aylabelle was proud that she knew where to go to give the lady the money and then to wait at the gate. She has it all figured out. I loved watching the girls and taking pix while we rode around instead of actually being on a horse. I didn't want to miss the photo ops! Worth missing the ride!
Sch a fun place...we didn't come to get wet, we only planned on the carousel, but at 112 degrees, a little water is nothing but wonderful!
After another yummy dinner, beef and broccoli stir-fry, and getting Aylabelle to bed, we gabbed and played "Heads Up" for a long time. Then we started playing "Would you Rather?" and we played and laughed until almost 1 in the morning. "Would you rather" is a game where you just think of two options and everyone chooses which they would prefer... "Would you rather bunjee-jump off a skyscraper or go diving with sharks?" Would you rather eat pizza every day for the rest of your life and never have another Diet Coke or eat cheesecake every day of your life and only drink water? Silly questions but you learn a lot about each other's fears and likes and dislikes. Someone asked a question that made us all laugh for.ev.er... completely a question like Quayd would have asked... "Would you rather have a green cloud surround you every time you pass gas or have rotten egg breath for the rest of your life?" Oh my. That got us to thinking... and laughing. We played until we were falling asleep on each other!
I can't say how much I loved being with my girls. Liza is such a gracious and thoughtful hostess. We went to help her and at this point, that hadn't even begun to happen. We just played a lot! All day and all night. Loved it!
