Family Day!

Yesterday Steven took the WHOLE day off! It was fabulous! He is supposed to take Sunday & Monday off but he almost always works Mondays. And Sundays just don't feel like a day off what with church taking up half the day. So I was super excited when he told me he wasn't working on Monday. So we packed up and headed to Givens Hot Springs.

Steven and I had been there about a year or so ago and we weren't hugely impressed. The day we went the water was really hot and the dressing rooms were filthy with ants, cobwebs and spiders all over the place. But this time was SOOO much better. I had called ahead to see what the temperature of the water was to make sure it wasn't going to be too hot for Trey. It was at a perfect 100 degrees. Just like warm bath water. And the dressing rooms were way cleaner with no bugs of any kind.
We had so much fun! If you haven't been there, I would recommend checking it out. It's a big indoor pool that goes from 1 foot to 10 feet. It has a basketball hoop with tons of balls and its hardly ever busy (although we've never been there on a Saturday). It was pricy for us, $7.00 for an adult. But well worth it. And not too far away, it took us 45 minutes to get there and we live in West Boise.
They were so nice and let us use this really cool float tube for Trey. It was perfect for him! I had never seen one like it. All I've seen are the old school plastic intertube looking ones. This one was like a big mesh raft that he could play with his toys on (see picture below). I loved it! He loved it! In fact, I loved it so much that I found one on eBay and bought it today!
Anyway...after we swam we came home and watched a movie, had dinner super early (5:30 pm as opposed to 7:00 pm because that's when Steven gets home) which was so nice, and then watched 'Chuck' later that night. It was a really fun family day. We don't get them very often, so I'm treasuring it!
