The boys riding the ferris wheel. Chad was a little worried that Cayden would freak out, but he did great! We would have let Laura ride too, but she was 4" too short. Maybe next, next time. :)
There are several photo-op areas in the building and the kids enjoyed doing most of them. It took a little while to convince Cayden that the animals weren't real, specifically the bear and skunk.
Laura was a little unsure of the skunk at first,
but eventually decided it was ok to pet. Cayden wouldn't go near it; he was too worried about it spraying him!
Kids driving the monster truck. This was Cayden's favorite.
Excited to have the truck all to herself.
Ooo! A bear!
This picture makes me laugh. Laura couldn't stop looking up at the huge bear and Cayden was making his "scary" face and refused to look at the bear. I'm honestly surprised that we convinced him to go sit under it.
Playing the shooting game with daddy and way too interested to look at the camera.
Playing with mommy too. The game told me that I needed to go back to shooting school, or something to that effect. Ha!
Finally let me take his picture!
We did a little bowling. At one point I had to chase Laura down the lane because she was running after the ball.
And a little golfing. This picture shows perfectly how each of them played. Cayden actually used the club to hit the ball and Laura just walked from hole to hole throwing the balls in.
We also looked at lots of fish. Laura could have spent all day there. This was definitely one of her favorite parts!
Running up and down the stairs was another one of Laura's favorite activities. She would just giggle and giggle. She enjoyed it so much that we did it a couple of times just for fun. Poor Chad got a decent workout - that girl is no lightweight!
We finished off a fun evening with ice cream! Both kids approved and have already asked to go back.
