After we dropped the kids off at VBS, Carol and I headed to Target where we did some back to school shopping. Then we picked up the kids and went swimming!
Miley heard us playing next door and started going nuts. She was trying to dig a hole under the fence to get to us so I went and got her so she could hang out at the pool too. Poor thing got so hot!
Once we picked up the kids from VBS, we headed to Jackson. This was probably the single most fun day of the entire summer. We started off with lunch at Casey Jones. The kids thought the buffet was the greatest thing ever!
Then we drove to Alamo to the Tennessee Safari Park. We started with the drive-through part of the park. We bought a bucket of feed for each one of the kids.
We saw hogs:
Ava got a little freaked out by the zebras because they were digging into her bucket. She spent the rest of the safari ride in the very back of the van where no windows could be rolled down.
We also saw deer which Dalton loved!
We also saw the lovely llamas!
After we drove through the safari, we were able to get out and visit the petting zoo part of the park.
Then we got to feed the giraffe! That was a lot of fun! You hold the carrot up and the giraffe bends down and wraps his very long tongue around it.
After a visit to the gift shop, we made our way home. It was a TON of fun!!
We dropped the kids off at VBS, and we were able to get in our rooms to work and start setting them up. We only had 3 hours so we will definitely have to go back, but we got a good start. Once we picked up the kids, we went to our favorite place to eat: Abbay's!
Then we met Rachel and her kids and Qua and Caleb at the Germantown pool. I wasn't able to get a picture of all the kids together because they were all scattered and had so much fun!
Of course, we had to stop by Menchie's on our way home from the pool! It has become tradition!
VBS was in the morning. Then I picked up the kids and we went shoe shopping. Ava picked out Converse and Elia got Nikes. We had to buy Elia a size 7 in the ladies! Sniff, Sniff! My baby is growing way too fast! Kevin got home this afternoon, and we were so happy to see him. We had a nice dinner at his parent's house that night.
Only one more week of summer fun left! We are going to soak it all in this week!!!!!!
