Today, in effort to have a special day with Kay before little sister gets here, I took her to thanksgiving point. While we were there I had a conversation with her in which I told her we were at Noah's ark. And, that if she wanted to come back another day she could just tell me "Noah's ark". I had her repeat this to me a few times so she would learn the name of this place.
A few minutes later she ran over to me, and I asked her " Where are we right now?"
"Arizona" she answered.... without hesitation.
This makes me sad and smile at the same time. She and I would go to a splash park at least once a week for five months out of the year in Phoenix, and I love how her little mind put two and two together to deduce that we must be in Arizona if we are at a splash park.
On a side note.... Does everyone know about this park at Thanksgiving point?
I have been asking around after it since our move back, only to be looked at like I was making up a story. I had this vivid memory of being of a place like this, but had started to think I must have dreamed it up since no one seemed to know what I was talking about. By chance, the wife of Jeff's co-workers mentioned it the other day, and I was elated to find that one, there was a splash park near by to take Kaylie to, and two, I was not crazy.
