I love having family days when John, I and the girls just spend the entire day together. It started off with breakfast some mochas/lattes, then off to IKEA. This is my second official visit to the store and it was much better this time around. Victoria was finally tall enough to be in the children's play area and Claire was a gem. I am personally not a fan of the contemporary style of funiture/accessories they carry but I love all the gadgets, organizers, window treatments and of course of the kids department. After spending the morning there we headed off to Schnepf Farms Pumpkin and Chili Party in Queen Creek, AZ. Victoria got to enjoy her favorite ride of all time on their 1912 antique carousel. She also enjoyed riding on the John Deere tricycles through a hay maze! We played in the playground, rode rides, and ventured through a corn maze. Finally, we ate lunch got homemade lemonade, nuts, and kettle corn, then headed off to the patch to find our pumpkins. It was a wonderful day. As soon as we headed home the girls were passed out in the car. Family Day - mission accomplished!
