The Rest of the Fourth

After our fun at the park, we headed down to the river. It didn’t smell very good, but it was pretty and very windy which was nice because it was HOT!

We took a walk down the riverside to a little memorial park, but discovered on the way that Zachary’s shoes were giving him blisters. I carried him the rest of the way to the park, and he is HEAVY! So that kind of hindered our walk, and we headed back pretty quick. Lucky for me, Jim carried Zachary on the way back. Too bad for Daddy, Reagan wanted to be carried too. Thank goodness Daddy is super-strong!


Down by the river was also a museum that had a train engine that you could actually get in and climb around. It was a highpoint for the kids who LOVED getting to see a train so close-up, especially Zachary who LOVES trains! But it was also a low point since we went to great lengths to be there at noon when it opened only to wait around and discover that it was closed for the 4th. THERE WAS NO SIGN ANYWHERE TO TELL US THIS!!!!! We just waited and waited and finally Clay went to the main museum to figure out what was going on and found out they were closed. It was such a disappointment!


Oh, well. We’ll try again the next time we visit! We had so much fun, the next time can’t come too soon! Thanks Uncle Clay and Aunt Carey for letting us come and overtake your home! Love you guys!
