Legoland, Playground, & Water Park fun!

We had a fun filled week for sure this week, and loved every minute of it!  I love summer and just getting to do all sorts of fun things with the girls.  We usually stay busy at least 3 days and will enjoy some down time at home as well.  This week we started our week by going to Legoland on Monday with Dawn, Grace, Keyes, and Elliott.  We had never been and I've wanted to take Cohen in the past but never have.  Keyes and Cohen both love Legos so Dawn and I thought this would be right up their alley.  I think they all enjoyed it too.   I'm not sure it was everything I had expected it to be but it was still fun and the kids really liked it.  They loved the rides, the 4D movie, and the big playground!  Even Kate had a play area she liked!  They all had fun looking at the Lego buildings of the city of Atlanta, especially the football and baseball fields.  We covered it all in a couple of hours then finished up in the gift shop.  We finished just in time for lunch too so we had lunch, did a little shopping and finished up with frozen yogurt.  Dawn & I even made a stop at the Container Store.  We had a fun day!  On the way home we met Kelly and then made our way to Gainesville to celebrate Grannie and Aunt Vicki's birthdays.  I would say we had a fun filled day for sure!

On Tuesday we went to see Cohen's friend Mya.  These girls twirl together and Cohen has missed seeing Mya since we haven't had a competition since Savannah.   Mya just had a birthday too so we had a gift for her.  When we got there the girls enjoyed some pool time together then went inside to play.  They had so much fun seeing each other and I was glad to get them together.  I didn't get a picture of them but they were busy playing hard!
On Wednesday the playground that Bebe had bought for the girls was being installed.  She had wrapped up a picture of it for Kate's birthday but it wasn't officially installed until Wednesday.  They both could not wait to get out there and try it out.  I know we will spend lots of time on it.  Cohen, Keyes and Elliott actually found out that wetting the slide made for a very fast water slide!  In this picture the girls have on their bathing suits because we were about to head to the swimming pool.  We enjoy pool time every chance we can get!   Savannah & Addison came by for a little bit that afternoon to play on the playground.  Cohen ended up going home with Savannah for a sleepover.

Thursday morning Cohen came home and we laid low here at home.  The girls had fun painting on the porch and we played games together in between cleaning.  There's always a day for cleaning, that just isn't near as fun :)
Yesterday we continued our fun week by going with LeAnne, Baylor, Kinsley, and Kaylee to the water park.  Cohen has been looking forward to going back this summer and it is a great place for the kids.  We got there at a great time too because it wasn't too crowded yet and no day camps had come. It did start to get crowded just after lunch but after we ate lunch we let the girls play for a little bit longer and then we were ready to go.  We did take them by Chic-Fil-A for their free ice creams they had got coupons for.  I had fun watching Kate eat hers.  It took her forever and I just knew it was going to be the biggest mess ever, but she managed to eat it pretty well and thank goodness for baby wipes!  Cohen went down the big waterslide this time and I was very proud of her.  She can be pretty hesitant about things but she went right up there and slid right down.   When we got ready to leave she wanted to go again but it was a much longer line so I told her she would have to wait for our next trip.
