We did something fun in April. SURPRISE!

Tate and Em give the news while Hayden has a snooze. heh.
The look of happiness on his face was great. He loves this place.
I guess Hayden and Emily are getting too old for even this part of the museum. Tate was ready to reprise his old role of popping up and disappearing like he did a couple of years ago. He was the only one interested in the re enactment.
Who doesn't love a helicopter??
Ha ha. Hayden's in front of a green screen. Should've dressed him all in that shade of green so he could be a bobbing head.
Didn't get to spend long enough in the building area.
Hayden shops for rubber fish and plays his DS at the same time. He insists he can't multitask. hmphf!
No! I'm the cashier! NO! I got here first!
Tate loved riding the front runner!
They really did look out the windows sometimes, I promise.

We went to the Gateway Children's Museum on the Front Runner (commuter train) on a day off from school in April. We grabbed McD's and ate it on the train. The kids enjoyed it and I didn't have to stay awake behind the wheel. When we missed the trax back to the FR station, we had to walk to the next stop. My back didn't love that back then. It'd be ok now. Tate loves the museum, but Hayden and sometimes Emily are too old. Hayden grouched enough to make me mad. Overall, we had a good time. It's the overall that counts, right?

Ty, Lauren, and kids from our sideMy handsome guys
The cousins
My niece
My kids.

I still haven't really recovered from the quick trip yet. In fact, I put on my back brace for a little bit this morning. I was asleep before any of the kids last night. Thank goodness Mike could keep his eyes open long enough to put them to bed!

Old pics clear from April. Of this year.

Emily and Tate holding bunnies, before Em's bunny freaked out and started thrashing which freaked her out. It scratched her, she wants you to know.
Took a lot of convincing to get Emily into the pen with the baby cow. Tate's behind her, kneeling by it.
Seriously brand-new bunnies. Teeny baby bunnies. SOO cute!
Em petting a bunny
Tate petting a goat.
Me holding a tiny turtle!
Not one of us feeding a baby bear.

I pulled Emily and Tate out of school to go to baby animal days in Logan. Hayden was under the mistaken impression that he's too old for this and he chose to stay at school. Crazy. (head shake)

Next week I'll post pictures from my brother's wedding! Yay!
