the girls watching mulan. we honestly didn't know what else to do after pool time. day 3 was pretty eventful, and I was definitely proud of how much fun this trip was for the girls, and therefore for us as well. I asked amelia what was her favorite part of this trip. her answer? "...the hotel" I thought this was fair, and asked her what her favorite part of the hotel was (guessing in my head either the pool or happy hour). "watching mulan." arggggh... clearly this girl doesn't get much tv time.
we found this darling dinosaur park to eat lunch in. the girls loved exploring and climbing on these giant figures. we enjoyed this free activity a little better than the paid-for dinosaur museum.

we stopped at the cutest (and slightly sketchy) alpaca farm. they were so sweet, but millie was terrified and wanted nothing to do with the alpacas, except for the baby born a few days ago. scarlett was a little more brave, and whispered "soffffffft" every time she petted them. I'm glad we got out of our comfort zone and had so much fun as a family!
the dinosaur museum admission included a mirror maze and mini golf. the girls loved running through the dinosaur exhibits. the mirror maze was actually really unsettling to walk through-- I just have a hard time being lost with my kids. both amelia and scarlett loved mini-golfing... amelia probably got a hole in 37, and scarlett started throwing her golf-ball into the holes. in the end, I took scarlett back to the car for a nap while amelia and dad when through the course again.
after our eventful night, I took the girls to the pancake bar in hopes of jeremy getting a little shut-eye. he didn't think he could drive us to bear country because he was so exhausted. after an hour at breakfast (where millie spilled oj all over herself), we found that daddy couldn't sleep anyway... so off we went to a new adventure!
