Dayton For a Day

posted on: Friday, June 26, 2015

It's Friiiiiiiiday!!!!! My favorite day of the week. We're headed down to Columbus this weekend to visit friends and take the kids to COSI for the first time. So I figured I better go ahead and post these pictures from last weekend before I get too far behind. We went down to Dayton for father's day to see the airshow and visit with Josh's mom and stepdad who live there. Josh's two step brothers and our niece, Rory, were there for the weekend too. It was so cute watching the girls sort of play together as they're getting a little older now. Since neither one has a sister I really hope they can be close as they grow.

We woke Josh up early with presents on Sunday morning. I think his favorite thing was the portrait Wes made of him ;)

I promise no one told the boys to do this salute. Wes started it and Oren and followed his lead. So freaking cute.

Josh's stepdad works at the Dayton airport so we had passes for the friends and family pavilion. It was tricked out! A sandbox for the kids, a bounce house, a clown painting faces and making balloon animals. The kids were in heaven.

Josh's stepdad also used his sway to get the boys a private tour of one of the planes after it came down from it's portion of the show. I felt a little bad because a bunch of people saw the kids climbing around inside the plane and thought it was open for tours. Once a line started to form I was feeling really bad. But the pilot let them all down gently after the kids climbed down and the crown finally dispersed. They are the most spoiled, I'm telling you.

After the show we still had quite a few hours of daylight left so on a tip from a friend (thanks, Michelle!) we took the kids to Wegerzyn Gardens. This place was beautiful. The kids watered the flowers in the children's garden, soaked their feet in pond and begged to stay just five more minutes...about 20 times ;)

It was such a nice weekend getting to spend time together as a family. Here's hoping these kids of ours are making the type of memories they'll carry with them throughout their lives. So far, this summer is off to a great start.
