Thanksgiving Gardens

Well, it’s the beginning of the second full week of Summer vacation. I think I’m going to try to do something fun with the kids at least once a week while they are out of school. That’s not too ambitious, right? I would hate to be too ambitious. I’m contemplating getting a pass to the Lehi pool, and canceling our membership to the Legacy Center. It just doesn’t seem right to swim inside on a gorgeous summer day (and it doesn’t help the tan either). My friend Jailyn is going to be going there this summer, and she used to be a swim instructor, so maybe she could give my kids some pointers. So, some weeks, the fun thing I do with my kids may just be going to the pool. But this week I decided to brave 5 kids by myself and I took them to the Discovery Gardens at Thanksgiving Point, and then we went to the Grown up gardens too. The kids had a blast, and we all survived…although I should have worn something other than flip flops, my feet are sore! I was surprised how much fun they had, it’s not real interactive, more of a walk along and look at things type of place, but they really seemed to like it. So, now I’ve been a fun mom for this week, and it’s only MONDAY. Go me.

I loved this spot, how it looks like the flowers are spilling out of the pots.

Glad to be out of the stroller
