We had a great weekend! It started with a great date on Friday night. We went to Carino's for dinner then bought some candles at the Yankee Candle store and a trip to Costco and topped the night off with watching the movie Nanny Diaries when we got home. Saturday started with some exercise (the first time I have been running since the birth of Madeline) and house cleaning/organizing both activities were great to get done. Then after lunch we headed to the zoo. Jacob and David liked seeing the animals, it was especially fun to watch David's excitement because this was the first time he has been to a zoo that he can remember.
Here is a picture of the Mower crew ready to go!
Ben and the kids with the penguins behind. Yes, Madeline is under the blanket.
There were ice sculptures at the zoo, I thought this sculpture of bees was quite impresive.
We finished the day by attending a gymnastics meet. The meet was fun but we had a few clothing/diaper mishaps. It turns out that our excursion made Ben and I forget a little about David's diaper. He wet through and his pants were soaking wet, woops. Madeline also decided to dirty her clothes but it wasn't just pee:) She had a bigger surprise for us and we had just changed her diaper! We used what we had to clothe the two kids. A blanket for Madeline and a free pink T-shirt for David. We probably were quite a sight but I forgot to take a picture. The night ended perfectly with all three kids asleep take out from our favorite Big Ten Burrito and a little T.V. What a great day, I wish every day were Saturday!.
