Dave's company gives him Good Friday off so we try to do something fun as a family. This year we headed to the zoo, played at a new playground, and did some clothes shopping. It was a great family day. The boys had lion shirts on, so when we got to the lion exhibit we had to get a picture. The lion was so cute and didn't look much like a beast at all, just a sweetie.....he was laying down with his head propped on a log like it was a pillow, just looking all around.
Checking out the rhinos...
Eva looked really cute in her jacket and enjoyed taking in all of the sights.
They have an exhibit where the kids can run as fast as a cheetah. It was cute watching them try to go as fast as possible. *Benjamin was getting over a cold and he has issues with asthma when he's sick, so he skipped running this time, but we'll be sure to try it out again for him.*
Dave asked Collin to show his muscles while he was waiting for his turn.
After racing like cheetahs, they got to see real cheetahs. It was weird seeing them laying next to snow. They were really sweet looking.
Here's my Collin-Ollin. He's very sweet and fairly defiant. He keeps us on our toes for sure. This weekend he got out of the car at a gas station and started pulling the gas pump out of the pump that was across from us (I had turned from watching him for about 2 seconds to get Eva a pacifier), then the next day he got lost during our church Easter egg hunt and gave me a huge scare and when someone finally found him I told him, "Collin you scared me!" to which he responded, "No, I didn't." and ran off again, and finally that night he got a hold of Dave's hammer while we were moving furniture and did a decorative hammer job to our door. I tell ya, this boy is busy, busy and doesn't have a care or worry in the world!
We had fun watching this little baby elephant. He was so animated and ran all over the place!
We did a little shopping, had some dinner and then tried out a new playground. It was a lot of fun and Eva got to enjoy her first swing ride.
She LOVED it!!!!
Dave was loading the other kids in the car while Collin was having a little fit, so I had a few minutes alone with my sweet five year old.
Anna is getting pretty darn good at making silly faces!
She is such a sweet girl!
Here's what Mr. Collin was doing. In case you're wondering, he did not appreciate me taking his picture. ;)
Benjamin and Anna had their yearly check-ups and are both doing great! Here are their stats:
Benjamin - 53 pounds (50th %), 49 inches (75th %)
Anna - 42 pounds (50th %), 45 inches (90th %)
