Monday Kyle had the day off of school and we were trying to think of something to do- that didn't cost any money. I had heard at church the day before that they were having an open house at the Wind Farm to check them out and have lunch. We decided we didn't have anything else to do, so we went! It was actually pretty cool! They had donuts and juice for breakfast (FREE!) and they handed out these goody bags with a lot of information about the turbins and such. The bag was actually pretty cool, they are all about going green so it wasn't plastic bags, it was a heavy duty fabric bag. They also had a balloon clown there making windmills... I think they just made a flower and left out one petal, but we'll call it a windmill! :)
Kyle and Macy with our Windmills

They had buses there from the Holbrook School District that took us to the site where the windmills actually are and we got to go inside them! They made Kyle and I wear hardhats, but I guess Macy wasn't important enough to wear one... We couldn't take pictures of the inside, why? I don't know, there wasn't much to them at all. Just a generator looking thing and wires. Did I mention that we stood in line for an hour to go inside of them? Here is a cool picture of the windmills
After the tour they had really good pork bbq sandwiches, super super good! and.. Free!! Perfect way to spend a no-school-Monday.

Macy was wiped out. On the way home she crashed- clinging to her windmill balloon.

That picture of her sleeping is so adorable. I love Macy.
