The weekend of June 19th, Emory and I hopped into the car and headed to spend the weekend with Aga and Grandpa. Sadly, Justin had to work, but we were excited to spend our first weekend at Grandpa's house!
As soon as we got to town, we headed to the ZOO! It was a hot and steamy day with periods of rain, so it was horribly humid, but we managed to still have a blast!
Pointing out animals. She really enjoyed seeing everything!
Looking at the big turtle, just like her shirt. She kept saying, "Look at my shirt, turtles."
What a sweet sweet zoo girl. Loving every second of it!
The zoo has a brand new splash pad and these two had fun trying it out!
Aga is always such a good sport! Emory is so blessed with a grandma who really plays with her and isn't afraid of being fun and silly!
A perfect cool off on a hot day!
Two cute pandas!
And the cutest little panda I've ever seen!
There was also a petting zoo and look who we found just in time to feed the donkey - Aunt Whitney! Aka "Whickey." Haha. We love how Emory says her name!
Feeding the baby cows. Emory was a little scared to actually feed them, but she enjoyed passing the food to someone else to feed them. Haha.
And then it was time for a little zoo boat ride!
Emory loved the boat ride!
We then headed to the mall to ride the fabulous carousel! How fancy is this?!
Having SO much fun!
She liked the giraffe because he didn't go up and down like the other animals.
This ended up being her favorite spot, just sitting on the bench. I think that she rode 5 or 6 times! Obsessed much? Haha!
Aga's turn to ride!
After dinner, we headed back to Grandpa's house and spent the evening going through all of his stuff. He has lots of our old toys in one of his extra rooms and Emory loved pulling everything out to play with. She was such a champ and slept so great. I'm so thankful for a good sleeper!
The next morning we headed to the children's museum to enjoy some air conditioned play time. ; ) It was really neat and had a lot of things for kids to do. Emory had a blast and we stayed there for hours!
Riding the canoe! There was a big tv screen right in front that showed whoever was in the canoe. Emory thought it was amazing that she was on "the tb!"
Taking a little ride in the police car, just like Aunt B!
Picture time! This thing was so neat. You press the button and then strike a pose. It takes a picture with a big flash and your shadow is on the backdrop.
The Cafe! This is where Emory spent almost all of her time, running back and forth between the kitchen and the counter. She was such a great server!
Ringing up our lunch!
And taking a little break to enjoy a bite with Aga.
They also had a big fire station that was so neat! You could climb up the stairs and slide down the pole, just like real firefighters! Emory loves firefighters!
The museum was SO neat and really had some fun things!
We spent the rest of the evening at Grandpa's house. Aga was at Emory's beck and call and Emory loved it. And I sure did love getting to sit and rest! : ) They colored, played with blocks, and read a ton of books.
Before we left the next morning, they decided to play a quick game of twister. So cute!
We had an absolute blast at Grandpa's house and can't wait to go back soon! Thanks for all of the fun, Aga and Grandpa!
