I have always been an early riser, and I guess Collin takes after me. Summertime FINALLY has arrived, and you think he would sleep in? Oh no, last week he was out with grandma by 710am, dressed, and doing the lawnmower. Silly Collin.
Collin has loved lawnmowers for quite awhile. Recently, his grandma got him a bubble lawnmower. Oh my, little did she know. We do it in the garage.
I know...for being only 15 minutes away, how sad that we haven't taken Collin to Temple Square yet. My mom was in town last week so after work, we took a picnic and walked around. We really liked the Salt Lake temple model they have, but Collin only lasted there for 2 minutes. Overall, he enjoyed it, but mostly wanted to run around :)
The one nice day we were in Idaho, we went to the Idaho Falls Zoo...right during Collin's nap time, but he LOVED it. Once he got out of the stroller though, not so much success in getting him back in...He loved the petting zoo. No fear of the goats, like any animal. Just walked up and said "hi".
Sadee tried to be as brave as him, but not quite. She did get quite scared when Collin "ate" a piece of the goat food....but we got it out okay. PHEW!
They had a little play area, we took pictures.
A couple of weeks ago, Collin and I spent a week in Idaho. The weather was yucky most of the time, but we got to go see swimming lessongs. My, how memories return. I learned all about ham sandwich, soldier, fishie, fishie, etc.
Sadee also (afterwards one day I stayed and got in the pool with them) taught me all she knows about swimming, which apparently is now everything.
She tried to show me how to backfloat...it was too funny.
We also went to a couple of Sadee's t-ball games.
Ava and I hanging out on the stairs before a game.
Being silly with sunglasses.
Love that Sadee lost another tooth while I was there. This picture it's like THERE IS THE HOLE!
Last night for family night, we went to the Utah Museum of Natural History. I just found out the first Monday of each night is free and they are open until 8pm...so I figured, even if we only made it 20 minutes, it's free. It is a very old museum and not very big. This was a little teepee in the anthropology unit.
In the fossil section. By the way, this is how Collin smiles when you tell him smile, squinty eyes and everything. He liked the fossils.
But, you should have seen the number of WHOAS we heard from Collin when we saw this big guy. Collin REALLY liked all the dinosaur things...but I figured he would. He's a boy.
We also tried out this little cabin. Collin of course didn't want to stay in it when I wanted a picture.
I would have to say though, Collin's favorite section was the "bugs alive" section, or something like that. All these stuffed animals from the wild....and anything and everything that looked like a kitty (fox, badger, coyote, mountain lion), it was too funny. Kitty was EVERYWHERE.
