Another blog challenge...

As per Scrapbook Chalet's Jozzie's Blog Challenges:
# 20. Write about something you love to do with your children.

My answer to this one is that I love to do anything FUN with my children. Anything that makes them SMILE and ENJOY themselves. I love to hear my children giggle and laugh. I love to see their faces when they are happy.
I was able to do this just this past weekend. Colby had gotten a book of tickets to Hoffman's Playland from Grammy for his birthday. Seeing as it was a nice day and we had nothing else to do, we decided to go and use them up.
We brought Desiree too, which was nice for Samantha because she had another girl with her and nice for Will because Des is one of his best friends!
So, $50 later.... we had bought 2 extra books of tickets and the kids had a ball!! They were able to go on most of the rides. Art and I just sat back and watched...it was nice to just have little conversations with him while the kids were either in line or on the rides.

I love this photo! Samantha, Desiree, Colby and Will.


This photo was actually taken that morning... I just love how Colby and Art are looking at eachother!!!

Desiree, Colby and Samantha on the tilt-a-whirl

Will and Desiree on the flying umbrellas.


And a rarity- a picture of me and Art, taken by one of the kids :)

What a fun fun day we had!! Samantha got blisters on her hands from the tea cups-- she loves to spin them so fast!!!

And we ended the night with a trip to the Old Country Buffet, one of the kids' favorite restaurants! So, we spent about $100 but the kids had a wonderful time and we got to have real family outing. Thank goodness for Hoffman's!!
