Splash Pad Fun with Friends

We had a freakishly hot week at the end of March, and the kids took full advantage. My friend Brooke had the idea to meet at Tempe Marketplace and hit the splash pad.

The kids loved it and enjoyed a chance to get a preview of Summer.

Then we headed off with friends for a wonderful pizza lunch at slices and then some playtime :)

After we stopped for some frozen yogurt. We had such a great day.

Can't wait to do it again. Warm weather here we come.

Family Night at Chick-Fil-A

Tonight I took my loves out to dinner. They enjoyed having corn on the cob at dinner...

After dinner we drove by Chick-Fil-A, which is a fast food restaurant chain that has been based on real values. They are founded around family and Christian principles. As a result they have Family Night every Tuesday. When we drove by it after dinner the girls spotted bounce houses and started going nuts. So they begged me to stop and I am so glad I did, cause we had so much fun. We had some bounce house fun!


The Cow showed up!! Ella was THRILLED, but as you can see from the pics below Ryen was not sure how she felt about him. But she did let herself be hugged. ;)

We had so much fun and can't wait to go back for another Family night soon.

Children's Museum of Phoenix

I recently got a great deal on passes to the Children's Museum. My kids love it and we don't get to go often enough. We had so much fun as usual. The girls let me take lots of photos... probably too many, LOL. But some of them give me an excuse to practice some photography. Enjoy...

I wish I could recreate this at home, but you really need high ceilings and skylights to make it worth it

The balls are floating on air!

Such a big girl

Look at Ella helping lil' Sis through the climbing structure after she fell and got owies...

And here she is comforting her afterwards. So cute! :)

Look at my beauties! :) I love them...

Heading through the "car wash"

Who knew they were such good "window washers". Time to put them to work at home! LOL

They were having so much fun! :)

Posing with the bird sculpture.

Picking flowers in the "garden". They smell so sweet.

Playing with the light up sand table

Then we went to the "food market" for some shopping :)

A visit to the "ice cream shoppe"

A run through noodle forest

We had a great time exploring the museum

Can't wait to go back!! ;)
