Of course we had to go to Panda bear for lunch and then headed to the park. The weather was so nice when she was here!
Friday Morning we went to Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point. They had this cool cow right when we walked in that the girls just had to get on.
You could buy some dried corn to feed the animals but Tori was just happy sharing her popcorn with them. She was SO funny she would say "come here goat!" and then feed them some and then ask "is that good goat?" Such a sweetie!
Mayli has been wanting to ride a horse ever since we moved here and she finally got her chance. She loved it and was such a big girl riding all by herself and not wanting me to walk by her.
Tori loved it too! In fact it was her favorite part and she was SO mad when her turn was over.
Natalie and Carson came with us and we got to go on a carriage ride that was pulled by 2 horses. We had a really fun day.
We had a great fun filled weekend. Friday night AJ and I got to go out on a date and stay out really late playing rock band with some friends. Saturday we met Jen and Ed Parker for lunch and then went swimming with Amy and her family. We kept busy and were all really sad when Sunday came and we had to take Grammie to the airport. We loved having you here and love you so much Grammie!

Tori LOVES to swing. She pretty much stays in the swing the whole time we are there, I would just give her something to eat and push her and she was a happy girl.
This Friday we went to the BYU Museum of Art where they had a Walter Wick exhibit. He is the guy who does all the I Spy picture books. Mayli LOVES his books and so just loved going to see this. They had lots of pictures and also his little models that he makes for his pictures . He actually sets up little models of castles and things with little people and everything, amazing!
The Friday before last we went to the Museum of Cultures and People. We learned about Native Americans, listened to some books, and saw some neat pottery.
Then the kids got to try to make pottery of their own with play dough! They had lots of fun at both of these field trips, thanks MBASA!
This is her favorite thing to do, kicking and splashing!

I know that I am way behind on this but I have never used a Magic Eraser before this weekend when I had to clean my apartment after we moved (yes we moved again, just to a new apartment in Provo but that is a whole new post). This thing kicks butt! You can clean so much with this and it gets stains out that you can't get out with other cleaners, I am very impressed. Thanks Mr Clean!
It was so beautiful and Mayli loved all the paintings of Jesus. It is always neat to get to see inside the beautiful temples and feel the spirit that is already there.
We went with Amy, Spencer, Abby and Lyla and also Amanda and her girls Sophie and Laynie.They were all so cute together and had a really good time.
There was a bunch of paintings and pictures in a chapel after we did the tour with cookies and little water bottles. Tori was pretty much done by this point but overall it was a really neat experience.
