Our week

So, the kidlets didn't have school last week. We couldn't go on a vacation because Aaron still had school, so I promised the kids that we would do something fun everyday. So here you go:

Monday: We went to see "Horton hears a who."

Cute movie. There were only a couple of things that I didn't like, but the kids loved all of it, so that is all that matters. I would recommend this movie if you have liked previous Dr. Suess movies or if you have kids that would appreciate it.

Tuesday: We went ice skating.

The kids have been wanting to go for a long time. Especially Teague since hockey is over and he doesn't get to skate at least once a week anymore. Piper secretly wants to be really good at ice skating, but unfortunately she has her moms center of gravity, it's off to the right somewhere, sometimes the left, but never in the center. She did do a good job, it took her awhile to really get use to the ice.

Teague on the other hand was ALL OVER THE RINK and only fell a couple of times. He's a natural. I really love watching him skate.

*These pictures (ice skating) were taken with my phone since I forgot the camera!

Wednesday: We went to the zoo. We went to the zoo this day because all of the weather reports said that it was going to be the warmest day of the week. For those of you that live in Utah, you know that was certainly not the case. The kidlets really didn't want to wear their jackets, so I made sure that they had on long sleeves and long pants. They were actually okay.

The zoo was really nice. Most of the animals were out and active. The kidlets had so much fun and were so well behaved. Every time we go to the zoo, we go on the train, this time we got to sit on the very front right next to the engineer, the kidlets loved this. The train ride is actually kind of dumb, but the kids don't know that. We saw a giraffe that had chewed all of the hair off of it's tail, Piper thought that was the funniest thing ever.

We actually saw him chewing on his tail. We also saw the Brown Bears (they are still cubs) playing,

Teague thought they were fighting, so it scared him a little.
Here are a few more pictures for your enjoyment:

We went out to the Clark Planetarium to see "The Human Body." We saw the previews for this on T.V., and Piper freaked out, she loves anything that has to do with the Human Body, so whenever the preview came on she would ask when we were going to go see it, so, we finally went. What an interesting show. Teague's favorite part was the skeleton, and Piper just enjoyed the whole thing. We stayed for a little while afterwards and looked in the gift shop and around the planetarium. It really was fun.

Friday: We cleaned the house. Keep checking back for a post about Friday. I will give you a hint: Little Girls.
