Summer week 2

Summer week 2! On Monday, our trip day, we went to the zoo for the morning. We got there right as they opened and enjoyed the cooler temps and low crowds for a few hours. Michael had fun getting his face painted and the girls were so good. They all loved the free train ride! We also saw something we had never seen before: a bleeding heart pigeon who looked like it was hurt in his chest. It really looked real but it was just his feathers! 

Tuesday was our trail day and we took our bikes to Big Creek park to ride the trails there. We also played for a bit at the playground until a big busload of school kids came and then we met my sister for lunch for her birthday. It was probably our longest outing out of the house and everyone did great. 

On Wednesday, we went to the Science Center for the morning. I ended up buying a pass for the year since I also needed to renew our zoo pass. I think it will pay for itself even if we go a few more times. The kids had fun playing in the toddler area and Michael loved racing the lego cars. We watched a show about black holes in the sky theater (which made me a little sick) and the girls were so good during an IMAX movie about the national parks. 

On Thursday, our neighbor girl came over for a bit so I could run out of the house for some errands and a hair appointment. The kids were so being so cranky all morning, I really needed the break! Our girl comes for lunch and then rest time so I hope it is pretty easy for her. I sure appreciate the break and it gives me something to look forward to all week. 

We had been playing outside and the girls were messy and due for a bath so we also did messy food night! They had so much fun eating their messy foods since we only do it occasionally. 

And finally, on Friday we swung by Krispy Kreme for a snack before library time and they were actually making donuts!!! The girls got a hot one off the line and it was like nothing I had ever tasted before. The girls did great again at library time and we got Michael some extra books since we'll miss next week for Adventureland. 

Thanks for stopping by!
