It isn't about waiting out the storm it's learning to dance in the rain!

A day at the Zoo

We finally got a visit from our friends from Idaho. Kendra, Samuel, Jordan and Becca went to 'Build a Bear Workshop' on Saturday- lets just say the moms were more interested- the boys just wanted to wash their animals and watch everyone else. We did survive however and Jordan got the triceratops and named it Max, Samuel got the elephant and named it George. Oh- did I mention we added noises to them? Jordan choose the ROAR to put in it- so if he wants Max, it usually gets called 'Saur' (for dinosaur) or ROOOOOAAARRR. Whatever works. And of course I didn't have a camera!! Today however, we made it to the zoo- thinking it wouldn't be as busy as Saturday. Boy were we wrong. It was crazy! But we had fun nonetheless. We saw all the animals and got to ride the train. Of course by the time we got to the train Jordan had fallen asleep- poor boy! We had lots of fun and enjoyed the fresh air. Best of all we had ice cream afterwards!! By the way only 4 weeks till May 12th- due date:). Yeah.

Well - we went to kid to kid and Jordan wouldn't leave without The Spiderman Hot Wheeler. I don't even know if they still call them hot wheelers but - holy moley - Jordan's 'car' is what he calls it has been around the block everyday since we bought it and he loves pushing all the buttons. "I feel the need for some spider speed", "turning right", "turning left", etc.

I also can't believe how quickly he is learning words and signs. Candy is his favorite sign as of late. We are also trying to teach him 'baby' since that is what he is getting soon- a baby sister. Casey wants the baby to come too. Maybe then he'll get his wife back and his sanity. Just kidding-hahaha!

And finally the count is on! I officially have 4 weeks and 2 days! I am really excited that we are having a girl....

As always we'll keep you posted.
