I Love Weekends!!

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!.

Seriously, I am worn out just reading about your weekend :) It sounds like so much fun. What zoo did you go to? I really hope I can get Matt to a gymnastics meet. Very funny about all the clothes and diaper issues! We have so been there. You guys really know how to have a good time.

Hi Michelle! You had a girl!!! Congrats!! I hadn't heard about you forever until I found a link to your blog on Emilee W.'s blog. I'm so excited to get caught up with your family. We also had our 3rd baby (and 1st girl) in Sept. I thought about you all throughout my pregnancy because I never really believed that our baby was a girl... sometimes ultrasound techs make mistakes! Hope you guys are doing well and enjoying the last semester (is that right?) of law school.

Hi Michelle! I too feel exhausted reading about your Saturday! I really want to take the kids to a zoo, they are finally old enough to really have a good time. I think we are going to Hogle Zoo for spring break.

Congrats on the running also, I haven't been running for about 4 weeks now, it is time to get back on the wagon.

You guys always have fun. I'm so glad you get out and can do such fun things. I'm staying home with Heather today who is sick and that is way fun for me just not going to work.
