This past August 13th, Barrie and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. I cant believe it has been 5 years already. Wow time does fly while having fun. We share half the day with Catie and John. We went to This is the Place state park. We rode the train around the pioneer village twice. We hopped off at the Indian village and toured the teepees. Barrie helped Cate pan for "gold" in the little creek. We found a small piece and took it to the "bank" for a piece of taffy. Cate, John and I rode on the mini train that went around the small pond, were on the far side we were able to look out across the valley.Walking back to the town, there is a row of wheel carts. These carts are used when there are school groups. They take a mini trek up the mountain and come back down. They get experience what the Mormon pioneers experienced. We had to put Cate and John in a cart for a picture. It has to be my favorite picture of them by far.it was the Civil War days while that weekend at the park. There were camps set up around. When we came out of the "bank" the soldiers were lining up. They counted down and fired their rifles, then they shot the canon off. That was cool. Catie didnt think so. She was instantly sobbing.
On our way back to the gate, on the west side of the park they had build a mini town for children to play. Cate loved it. She was in and out of the little houses, store, cabin and on the train. Johnny liked having his picture taken on the train.
That evening, our very good friend in the ward watched/entertained Cate and Johnny so Barrie and i could spend some time together.( Thank You Denise and Ty!!!!!) We had a coupon for a buy one get one free park coupon for Lagoon amusement park. I did alright for a little bit, until we went on the ride Samuri. It spins in 3 different directions at once. I was sick. It took an hour for my stomach to calm down and my head to stop spinning. Barrie lost his sunglasses on it. We were able to go on more rides and play before we picked up Cate and John.
