A fabulous finish to the week
Fun Fun Friday
Friday was doubly fun. We went to Peter Piper for lunch. We met my sister Sarah and 3 of her friends and their kids. Tina and Jodi and Shauna who are all really fun and friendly and easy to hang out with. Tucker was being a darling big brother as he took Charlotte by the wrist and showed her around the place telling all the other kids that this was his sister.
I had been telling Trent that I wanted to take the kids to the zoo for weeks. Trent never wanted to go on a Saturday and face the crowds and he didn't want us to go without him. So when were we supposed to go? The zoo closes at 5pm. Well Friday before he left for work I asked if we were going to go out that night and he said we could go to the zoo! He took half a day off of work! After Peter Piper we went straight to his work to pick him up, and although this eliminated naptime, we knew we needed a couple of hours to spend there, so we just hoped the kids wouldn't get to grumpy. When we got to the zoo the kids looked like this.
We let them sleep a little bit, but then got going. We had so much fun. The kids got to pet goats and touch stingrays (although I'm not sure that was worth the $3 extra per person since I was the one who enjoyed it the most). Charlotte got more excited by little birds crossing our path eating crumbs than by most of the big animals. The weather was perfect and I am so glad we went that day! What a fun day out with Daddy.
Saturday the most exciting thing we did was wash the cars. It was fun having two little helpers!
We also got our first volume of the "Signing Time"DVD's and all watched it together. We've seen it several times now and Tucker can do all 15 or so signs and Charlotte actually watches this movie which is a first! She did the sign for baby this morning! Cool.
