we made it.

Paul went to Idaho this weekend, and late Friday night he decided to keep Savannah home with me. I was really tired from our stand on Friday, but by Saturday morning I was ready to have fun with the kids again.

As much as I love to plan our week out, it is nice to be spur of the moment...that way the kids aren't asking about said event all day long. So, when Paul left for the morning, so did we.

We stopped for breakfast at Mickey D's, made a quick stop at the post office, and headed to a new splash pad.
My friend Arianne has talked about the Foxboro splash pad in North Salt Lake, and I thought it would be fun to try a new one out. This year has definitely been the year of splash pads for us. Even though we have our Pass of All Passes, it is so much easier for me to take all 3 kids to a splash pad by myself verses Seven Peaks.
I liked this splash pad a lot, and even the kids liked it just as much as their favorite Highland splash pad. Bonus points for the huge play structure close by! I love going early to these places, because not only is it not as crowded...there is zero shade at this place. I thought I may melt at one point, and then I heard in the car on the way home it was over 100 degrees. No wonder.
On the way home we picked up pizza, and had naps.

I tried to not go crazy the rest of the afternoon without Paul, but I don't know how successful I was. We had to do a late afternoon run to the gas station for sugar to help cure me.

We all miss Paul when he is away, but we made it through another Idaho trip. Phew.

Let me know when you want to come down and try out the Springville splash pad, and we'll make it a date. Unless I'm working (boo for that anyway). :)

Well you need a half tent thingee so you won't melt next time. Looks like a fun place.
