Today we spent the morning touring a local candy shop. It was a lot smaller than the Sweets Candy Factory in Utah, but it was fun to see and taste the chews that they make. We were able to watch them make them, wrap them, and then taste them! They were nice and soft and pretty fun to watch them come right out wrapped. They were pretty yummy. They made peanut butter chews while we were there. We then went the giant cooler to see where they store the ice cream and then to see how they make the ice cream. We got to sample there chocolate ice cream. It was delicious! It tasted almost as good as the BYU creamery in Provo, almost, but not quite! :)
Last week we had a fun week. I forgot to post it but Max really wanted to "campout" in the backyard. So we put the tent up on Thursday morning and then Laney and Max slept out in the tent that night. Then Friday they played out in it with their friends and then that night we did S'mores over the charcoal grill and then they slept outside in the tent again. They had a great little campout.
Saturday morning Lemuel played in a tennis tournament so we went their to watch him play. He lost the first set 4-6 then won the second set 6-4 then lost the third 4-6. He won the consolation match yesterday so he plays again on Thursday. He played really well despite being a little under the weather with the flu last week. It was fun to watch despite having to chase the kids all over the club! Aidan just hasn't grasped the whole stay still and be quite concept. I'm not sure why??? :0)
Sunday I spent most of the day in bed with a heating pad attached to me because of my endometriosis. Not a fun day. I was pretty miserable. The kids were really good to play quietly and watch movies and Lemuel was great about doing dinner and cleaning up and keeping kids out of my hair for a bit so I could rest.
Yesterday it was 93 degrees so we spent a couple of hours at the pool with our neighbors. It was fun and cool. Not really relaxing, since Aidan kept wanting to run from one pool to the next but fun all the same. And luckily, no one got sunburned thanks to sunblock and the kids great skin tone.
