Both kids loved driving the golf cart. Abbie said they had a lot of work to do on Lincoln's golf game, but he was a waaaay better cart driver than Emily.
Another thing the kids were excited about was going swimming at the beautiful new aquatic center in Hull. They went three times. Emily got braver each time on the lily pads and slide. Lincoln was content to be a shore dweller near the fountains and never got deeper than his thighs.
Emily found the 50 Card Games for Kids book we had growing up and had fun learning different versions of Solitaire, as well as playing "Trash". Word has it that she & Uncle Wade are quite the pair.
Hull has a wooden park called "Kids' Kingdom" just like Waverly. It had just been freshly painted and stained.
Lincoln's highlight was probably all the time spent on the farm. He visited the home farm a couple times and got in lots of Kubota time. He talked a lot about the hay ride down the alley track, "my friend Kevin's tools" (Kevin is my dad's brother and partner) and the stinky stuff on the farm.
The kids also got to go see the fireworks in Sioux Center on the Fourth. The official report was that Emily tolerated them with her hands over her ears. Lincoln thought they were the best thing ever and laughed and laughed every time one went off.
A huge thank you to my parents, sister and brother-in-law for making this a memorable experience for Emily & Lincoln!
