2nd Nature Hike

We went for another nature hike with Isaac on Thursday. Another late night of work and it's just easier to keep the kids busy than to deal with little arguments at home.  



We had found most everything except the feather than to our surprise we came across these guys walking their pets. Pretty fun to watch and Isaac was pretty amazed. He put three stickers by the 'treasure' item to note the birds as found treasure (and of course the feather got checked off our list too).


Kindergarten Field Day

Isaac had his field day last Thursday. It got postponed from the previous Friday so I had the whole gang with me and unfortunately Kyle wasn't able to attend the make up day. Here they are getting ready for the three legged race. First was target toss, then this. 


 Next was the shoe toss and then a group picture.

Then the 50 yard dash, which Isaac said was his favorite.


Followed by TBall.

Thomas was waving and happily grunting, haha.


Then tire roll

Mary enjoyed being the water girl :)



Then the potato sack race:


And lastly was soccer dribble.



Around the House

There has been lots of coloring going on lately. Found these old workbooks of Isaac's when I was tearing apart the house in search of a missing pair of scissors (don't worry they were found, under the train table). But I found these workbooks that the girls are big enough for. Of course Isaac got home and saw them and insisted on finishing them. 


Thomas doing some reading, preparing for his trip :-D

The love of a baby is something special. I ran outside to get the grill going for dinner and he doesn't let me get too far away. Smiling with pure joy to see me coming back inside.

Waiting patiently while I get dinner going.




Isaac had a field-trip to an old century farm. His teacher sent this picture to all the parents.


The girls spend lots of time in this swing, so glad we got it last year.



We try to spend as much time outside as possible. Brought the sensory table outside


And of course the colors come outside too.



Sunday Zoo


Thomas loves to explore, but at this age he also loves to stick EVERYthing in his mouth... so the exploring poses a challenge. He's been standing a lot more on his own, with no hands. He had to show off for the camera.



Got to see the kangaroos... which were all lounging in the shade




How many pictures does it take to get everyone looking? None, thankful for head-swap editing :-D

Two Children Museum Visits

We made two trips to the Children's Museum last week. Tuesday just the girls, Thomas, and I went. We met some friends there. 



Last time we were there we made a little clay bowl for Emma. Well it shortly got destroyed a few days later. So the girls both wanted to make a new one. Which by the time I am getting to this blog they are already destroyed. They don't quite get the word "fragile" yet.




The girls held hands on their own. Four is turning out to be a good year!

Then we made another trip back Friday after school. Kyle had to work late and it was just me so I wanted to fill that lull of time between after-school and bedtime. Isaac was happy to get to go this time. We spent most of the evening in the Dinosaur Train exhibit. Friday evening at 5:00 is the perfect time to go too! Not many people there.






Thomas loved crawling around the tot spot area by the Scramble.



I braved a trip to Cossetta's which is a typical tradition when over in St. Paul. Isaac asked "can we go to that place we get the pasta?" :-) I was a little nervous as this place is usually PACKED but it was early enough I had hope. We got a spot RIGHT in front of the door and luckily there wasn't that long of a line. And we were even lucky enough to get a table on the main floor so I didn't need to haul everyone upstairs. But then of course before dinner was done someone had to pee so we did end up having to go upstairs, but at least we were fed at this point.

Thomas loved the pasta too and helped Isaac get through his massive serving.
