|The adventurers are off!|
Today we ventured to Como Park, which is so much more than a park. The babies had a blast in the pool - we went on the lazy river four times and down the slides and if those kids weren't under 48 inches we could have gone on the zip line too...but we had a fun time.
Joe almost fell asleep on me while I was wrestling him out of his wet trunks and diapers. But a picnic's as good as a nap...says no one. But it kind of was. A few pb and j's and pringles later, we were off to the (free!) conservatory and (free!) zoo, which, is NOT a petting zoo, in case you thought so like I did. That zoo = legit.
|Remember our Pooh Bear baby?! Still workin it!|
It wasn't the leisurely after-lunch stroll I had anticipated - that place is MASSIVE. And our children are very well-behaved when they are tired. Wait, no they aren't. But they were today - just kind of pleasantly relaxed and let us mosey where ever we pleased.
|Um yes, that is a 10 ft, 1700 lb. polar bear.|
|And that is a tiger.|
Everyone is napping now which is good because we have to regain some energy so we can party with (drumroll) Patti and Joseph Smith, ladies and gentlemen. They are coming from Texas tomorrow for a visit and we are going to a bluegrass festival with them on Monday. I am ridiculously excited. They are such a fun, lovely couple and also it will be my first bluegrass festival. WHAT TO WEAR???
Additionally, we are making pork barbacoa salads for dinner tomorrow because I have been missing Cafe Rio something awful. If you can't bring the mountain to Mohammed... Seriously - soooooo excited!!
Praying everyone else is having a fun, safe weekend. We miss you!
