The boys enjoyed all their favorite things to do there - climbing on the jeep, sitting in the tractor seat, trying to maneuver the logging simulator, playing with the stuffed animals in the burrows, and jumping around in the raft.
They weren't keen on the photo exhibit...I think the dino exhibit that is coming in a few months will be more their speed.

We came a bit before a group of friends from Hayden's preschool, so the boys got to check everything out. Bay really liked the rock wall, Hayden was all about the friction cars.
There were climbing structures (an enormous one with 6 slides for big kids, a small one for kids under 5...Hayden could do both!), inflatable obstacle courses (one for the big kids, one for the wee ones), and a padded area with books for little ones or kids who wanted to chill out and read (like Bayley when he got too sweaty.
It was quite the happening place. We were meeting up with 5 friends from Hayden's school...and 2 more of their school chums showed up! Bayley even found two classmates from his reading group at school!
Even the pizza was a big hit. Because we were there with the moms, I got veggie, Bay got cheese (5 slices) and Hayden had his meat (sausage). If we'd been alone we'd have all had cheese. I like going in groups!

Once they'd eaten, they rushed out for an egg hunt. It was raining, but these are Oregon kids, so they didn't even notice. We let the little kids start first, but I think the boys still managed to pick up more than their share of eggs. I think it was the huge baskets they picked to hunt with.
Either way, I had fun trying to sneak eggs out of the stash as they unloaded. And still, we have nearly as much candy as we did at Halloween!!
The boys had another egg hunt once they got to Grandma & Grandpa's. Grandma hides the baskets, and usually they find them right away...as in before saying hello...but this year we had to play hot & cold.

When we first started going, it was more like a class for Mom & Dad, but this time Bayley handled most everything on his own! Hayden kept at it while his attention held. They both got their mini-golf inspired project...and a patch.

They loved it. Bayley drew designs on his with a crayon, Hayden tried to get every color. They'll want to try it again next year...I wonder if the neighbor will invite them back ?

He did announce he thinks tennis is best, though.

They had the best time. When they came home to tell me about it, they were smiling wide, so proud of how messy and mucky they'd been.
Of course, such indulgence required not just being hosed off outside and then bathed at Grandma's...but another bath once they got home. Boys!
