A Mostly Fun Week

This week has definitely been better than last week, even including the nervous breakdown on Monday. But, Monday night I went to another friends and stayed the night there so that we could go horseback riding Tuesday morning. I had forgotten how much I miss riding! It was a blast! The girls seemed to really enjoy it too.

Then Wednesday, we went out to spend some time with one of my young women's presidents from when I grew up, Kathy Geyer. She is one of the most wonderful women I know! She had a blast with the girls, especially Alyssa because she is expecting her first grandchild in August. It's always nice to visit Kathy!
Today, I took Hailey on a mommy-daughter date, our first ever, but hopefully no where near our last. Kathy (previously mentioned amazing woman) watched Alyssa for me so that I could have some fun with Hailey. We went down to King's Island! WOO HOO!

This is one of my favorite places ever! My mom and I used to go at least once a week when we lived just one exit up the freeway. We just always got season passes and would go on the less busy days. It was so much fun! Anyway, Hailey seems to be the next generation of roller coaster junkies in my family...she rode all the kiddie rides that she could, and then we went over to the other side and she rode the spider and the scrambler and then wanted to ride the spider AGAIN! It was definitely her favorite of the day. She kept pointing to all the big roller coasters and saying she wanted to ride them, then she would be mad when I told her she wasn't quite tall enough. But, with the way she grows it won't be long.....

This last picture doesn't have Hailey in it because I rode with her, but I had to pay tribute to her favorite ride of the day!

That looks like so much fun. I can honestly say that I have NEVER rode on a horse. My first time touching an actual horse was about three years ago. Pretty sad, I know. Im glad you guys had a blast though. I've never taken any of our kids on a "mommy & me" date. What an awesome idea. Jay wants to know how Jed is too, by the way!
