Saturday Night

We had a wonderful family day on Saturday.  The day started with Marshall taking Tyler to his first tennis lesson (he will take some pics next week) while Emma and I stayed home and just had a nice morning playing with puzzles and dolls.  After naps we headed over to the East side of town to check out Trail Dust Town.   It is a replica of an old western town.  They also have a restaurant, Pinnacle Peak, that is a nice family steak house.
The kids had a blast as did Marshall and I.  We started the evening off with the free wild west show.  The kids were both so excited about it that when they asked for a volunteer at the beginning I actually thought that Tyler might go up there.  He refused but I did it!  I really thought the kids would get a kick out of me being up there but it freaked Emma out and she kept crying saying, "mommy come back!".  I made an ass out of myself in public but at least got a few laughs!=)

Tyler was in awe of the gun fight and Emma could hardly remain in her seat she was so excited about what was going on.

(She took her necklace off and was using it as a lasso).
After dinner we rode the train around the property.  The kids loved it and yelled "choo choo" loud enough for the engineer to hear it so that he would keep that whistle blowing.

They have a one hundred year old carousel there and lots of little shops and such.  We didn't get there early enough to do all of that and after the train ride it was time to start heading home. We are all looking forward to our next visit so that we can try everything out that we missed.

That second picture in the western blog looks like Tyler's and Emma's
great Uncle Denton. I hope you occasionally remind the kids of their great extended family. I keep wishing my mother had given me more insight into my geneology so I could pass it on. much Love and hugs...Granny pjwa
