I know they haven't been blogged or the envelope would be thrown away....but it's sat here so long I don't remember what the pictures are of.....
shall we take a look?
Oh yes! The Heard Museum!
We DID finally make it there a few weeks ago and had a great time!
Sonshine really liked the life sized, moving, roaring Ice Age Mammals that you see above....however my other 2 were scared poop-less of the noise. Fortunately a nice lady heard my delimma and offered to walk Sonshine around the room and read him the names of each animal! She couldn't have been more sweet and I couldn't have been more grateful! I grabbed this one shot from the doorway with a kid screaming and dangling off of each of my legs!
We were much happier outside at the small zoo animal area. As you can see we got there right at feeding time.
On through the butterfly garden and then it was time to hit the trails and burn off steam!
Stupid me, I just let the kids wander onto any old trail without looking to see how FAR it was first! Turned out we were on a 1 mile hike!! nice and downhill across the prairie....but it WASN'T a loop! you reached the end and had to turn around and go UPhill all the way home!
For most of the trail, (at least the first 3/4 of it) this was about all I saw of Gator-boy...
There were, however lots of nice companions to keep us company as we walked...
Then we decided it was time to get some LUNCH!
(psst. extra points to the person who can deduce what restraunt we were at by looking at that picture.....closely)
It was a great time for me and my hooligan clan. We will definitely go back there. There's going to be a life sized roaring moving DINOSAUR display coming next month...and the weather should be great for trail blazing by then too!!
and now the envelope is gone....
it has been replaced by the receipt from OXO for EIGHT 5.5 quart air tight containers that I just bought, so we can buy flour in 50 lb bags.
Someone introduced my hubby to Costco...I won't name names...but SHE has TWO blogs....
Time for me to head to bed and try to get over this damn bronchitis. I've called in 2 nights so far this week. 1 was my overtime night and 1 I'll have to take PTO for. I'd really rather NOT call in again tonight. However, since I hear through the facebook-grapevine that JACHO (aka Joint Commission) has been at the hospital the last 2 days I'm not toooooo upset at missing the fun and games!!
