Children's Garden

I have been wanting to see the Children's Garden at Thanksgiving Point and since we had nothing planned yesterday we decided to go. Sadly, the Noah's Ark that everyone has been telling me about wasn't working (it squirts water at the kids and is always a big hit?).
But we did enjoy the rest of the garden. Some of the highlights were The bear cave

The one little fountain that was running.
The coy pond. Both the kids love fish and the viewing windows in the wall were a big favorite of theirs.
And the hedge maze. Kaitlyn had a great time leading us around all the paths. We will definitely have to put a corn maze on our lists of fun family activities this fall.

We had a great lunch - one of the most relaxing lunches at a restaurant we have ever had with the kids. This was due to Tyler being so tired he slept laying on the bench of the booth most of the time, and the fact that we finally found a place that has food our picky Kaitlyn will happily eat.

Back at home we visited/played with neighbors. Then, per Kaitlyn's request to roast marshmallows we built a fire and did hot dogs and smores. It was a fun day for all of us - and as all days like that, we were completed wiped out by the end of it.

It's so sad that when you finally make it there the Noah's Ark wasn't working. My kids still talk about the Noah's Ark and it's been a couple of months since they went! It looked like you still had a great time though!
