My parents have been visiting us for the past week, so we've been busy doing fun stuff in between working, and not taking time to blog.
One afternoon last week we went to Silverwood, our local theme park. It's only about 25 miles from where we live, but in all the years we've lived in this area we had never been. I guess theme parks just aren't our "thing" as a rule, mostly because they're so expensive. But Laura got a job there this summer, and she earns one free guest ticket for every 40 hours she works. She had saved up her tickets so we could all go while her grandparents were here, and we did have a lot of fun.
We didn't have time to try out everything we would have liked to that afternoon, but I expect we'll have a chance to go again later in the season, thanks to Laura.
