Back to our destinations.
First stop: The Fairbanks Museum
A nice little natural history museum. Boys had fun looking at all the animals and artifacts. William and Landon really took their time and soaked quite a bit of information. Harkin just thought it was cool going around the loops.
Second Stop: Dog Mountain.
A place where dogs could run around and be free. Then there was a chapel that was dedicated to all the pets of the past. We wrote a note to Gritty.
This was all made possible by the artist Stephen Huneck. It was interesting.
Third Stop: Maple Grove Sugar House
A small little museum about sugaring and then a gift store where the ladies were so nice to the boys. They each got their own sample of maple syrup and then a taste of pure maple sugar candy. This was a big hit.
Then we headed back home taking a different route, hoping Harkin would be OK. He did not get sick again but definitely wasn't feeling too good. I still thought it was car sickness, but then three days later he was sick again for a few days. So we caught something . He is on the mend and we are getting outside more this week.
p.s. Issabelle basically slept the whole day. She was so good in the car, which was a relief to everyone.
Harkin thought it was pretty neat that he got to do what the big kids did. He even got a higher score than Landon:)
Landon was thrilled to have had a party. We don't do one every year so it was very special.
They both are really enjoying this sport. It is not one I would have ever thought to get involved in if we were not living in the area we are. I am so glad that they have shown an interest in this. The program is amazing and they both are doing very well with it.
He has been dying to go rollerblading. Luckily a brand new skating rink opened not too far away. We headed there in the morning and being a week day, pretty much had the place to ourselves. All the boys had a great time. I was able to skate for a little bit, but Issabelle wasn't too happy with all the lights and the music. She just wanted Mama to hold her. But I had fun watching everyone.
We came home to relax, open presents and bee-bee shoot. That is what my young man wanted.
Daddy made dinner- burgers, french fries, and Cesar salad. And of course the cake. Shortcake with cream and blueberries. We don't stray too much from the regular.
Then a movie to top off the day.
It was a grand day. Wishing my sweet boy a wonderful year of being nine!
