I'm on a mission to clean out my entire freezer of meat. I buy when things are on sale and sometimes over buy and we have 3 freezers and we ate meatloaf this week that was almost a year old. So, no more buying meat until everything is cleaned out.
David came home from work and asked what was for dinner. I told him some chinese that was in there from Costco. He asked if we had any more gift cards to Olive Garden. Low and behold, we had one! So, off we went for a yummy dinner.
Ben and Noah don't eat much there, so we got ice cream after with some gift cards Pam had given them for Valentine's Day. Thanks, Aunt Pam!
We were going to head home, but I suggested we head to this new park. Well, it's about a year old, but I saw it one day and thought the kids would love it. Emily and Noah had been for a birthday party, but Ben never had.
The parks story is rather sad. It was built to remember Kayla Mueller who was from Prescott. She was 26 and went to Turkey with Doctors Without Borders. She got captured in Syria and raped and tortured for a year before they killed her. The park was built in her honor.
And it's an awesome park where families gather, people laugh and memories are made. And I'm sure that's exactly what she would've wanted.
Here's Emily flying high on this swing saucer thing.
And the zipline is totally awesome.
This just looked like a little seat, but it spins you around and around until you want to puke. It's awesome!
David and Ben played tag for like an hour. David was seriously the biggest kid there and I had to tell him a few times to watch for the little kids. He's nuts...but, fun!
Emily hanging upside down.
More tag on the giant teeter totter.
There's even a little hockey rink on the left for roller blade hockey. David would've loved to go out there. Maybe next time.
These two fight and then are so cute together.
We were there until after the sun went down. It was a nice end to the week. Next time, we'll just grab a pizza and bring a blanket and go enjoy the evening.
