Children's Discovery Garden


Tim and I have a pass to Thanksgiving Point and I keep saying how we need to take Addison over to the Children's Discovery Garden. We didn't go last year because we thought Addison was still a little to small to enjoy it. Since we didn't go last year, we weren't exactly sure what to expect. All we knew was that there is a big Noah's Ark and water to play in. So last Friday we finally took Addison. She absolutely loved it!! It was so much fun watching her splash and play in the water. Her favorite part was playing around all the water that shoots up in the air. We were both so surprised at how brave she was. She would go right up to it and put her hand over the water and start smiling. It looks like we will definitely be spending a lot of time there this summer.






Besides the water to play in, they also have other things to see that will keep the kids entertained. Mixed in with gardens and ponds, they have a bear cave, a light house for the kids to go into, some water with looking glass to see the fish, a tall maze to navigate through, and a few other things.

We had so much fun with you guys! Thanks for letting us tag along. We were so proud of Addison, she was much braver than any of our girls!

Colter really likes addison in her bikini. He would like to know if Addison is available to accompany him to the discovery garden sometime this week. Any time after his nap works great.

That looks so cool. I drive past TP every time I am in UT, maybe next time I will actually stop! Glad she liked the water. Aren't the little splash grounds great? It is so hot here, the mall by my house actually has a splash ground instead of a play area! To funny, right? I think it is a conspiracy to make me buy more clothes...

My kids absolutely love the discovery gardens. They didn't have the water turned on when we went earlier this year & my kids were so disappointed. Noah's Ark is their favorite part. I'm glad Addison liked it. It is perfect for little kids. They can splash & play all they want with little danger involved. And the pictures of her is the water are so cute. I know I've told you before, but oh my gosh, her smile is absolutely adorable.

Oh- she is too cute! That looks like a fun place to take kids. Thanks for coming to my shower! It really was so much fun to see you- yet, kind of depressing that you're only a month behind me and you can't even tell you're pregnant! Way to go!

I came across your blog and think that not only do you have an absolutely beautiful family, but you take amazing photos! I have no idea who you are, but I almost came to tears looking through your "life" so to speak!
