What a weekend!

We are at the end of a really fun weekend. Friday night Chad and I decided to bundle up the boys and head down to Gardner Village. It is such a fun place to wander around. They have their Christmas lights up now and the cute little elves are out. The boys were really excited to finish that night up with a donut from the bakery.

Saturday morning we were up bright and early to go shopping for our new counter top. We found it! We chose a beautiful piece of granite. It was a bit out of our price range, but as Chad always says, "everything is negotiable".

In celebration of my father in law's 55th birthday, Becky treated us all to an awesome time at iFly later Saturday afternoon. At iFly, you are first trained and then suited up before you jump into a crazy wind tunnel. The wind blows so hard that you literally fly. Everyone did it (even though some of us were moments away from chickening out!), including my brave little guys... we've got video to prove it. I will admit that it was scary but it was also so much fun, what a rush! Thank you Becky and Happy Birthday Ken!!!

It sounds like you had a lot of fun. I saw that ifly on tv the other day and was wondering how it worked.

I'm so excited you had a great weekend. I'm especially excited about your granite! It's going to look awesome.

How did the boys like the air tunnel? I'd be the one who was too chicken to even try it! Was it fun?

Amber said...

I love the granite! I hope that you are able to negotiate it into a reality!
How did your boys do with ifly? It looks like something my kids would there an age or height requirement?

Yeah- new countertops! I am so jealous! It is going to look so good with the cabinets! We went to Gardner Village today and got pictures with the elves. It's our Thanksgiving tradition. I LOVE it there!!! Don't you love those flying machine?!?!? Nedra had one, too much fun!!! See you soon! When are you making that soup again????
