May's Daddy Dates

For daddy dates in May all the kids eventually had their dates all be it Josh and Cami's both were squeezed into the last couple days of May. 

For Phoebe's date she chose to one of the kid’s favorite spots – Wheeler Farm.  It was a little cooler that evening and all of the animals were very sociable, so Phoebe got a lot of chances to touch most of them.  She loved the silly little black lamb climbing up and standing on the daddy sheep. The goats were so hungry one of the smaller ones even climbed up inside the feeder to get more to eat.  Cory said that every time he goes with one of the kids, he amazed at how much fun it is for them (even when they've been there multiple times in the last few months already).  They love those animals!
The previous month, or whenever it was that it had been her date to see all the animals at Wheeler Farm, Cams and daddy, upon leaving, stumbled upon a new park which Cami really wanted to play on it, so they agreed that it would be their next date. Even with mother nature not cooperating (it rained the entire time), Cami still was determined that this park is where she wanted to go. She loved climbing up to the very topof the play equipment, but was not sure about the dark tube slide. After a couple runs down on Daddy’s lap, however, she was convinced and had a blast. While there they also saw & played wih all the little stone creatures who hung out at the playground.
Josh has always loved trucks, and since May was free admission to Kennecott’s large open-pit mine, he & daddy went to see some BIG TRUCKS! We also discovered that our little man is TERRIFIED of heights and would claw to get away from the look-out guardrail if Daddy tried to pick him up to see. Luckily we found a corner that was just chainlink fence and he could see everything with the comfort of having solid ground beneath his feet. Inside the visitor center Josh loved to run back and forth to all the toy trucks they had displayed. Josh's date, however, got cut early due to blasting at the mine, all visitors had to clear out which meant they only had a 15 minute visit, which is one of the reasons we later too another trip couple days later as a whole family.
