Do your kids love going bowling? Do you remember their first time bowling?

Last month, my husband and I took Katie and Sophia bowling for the first time. The day before we went, our girls watched a bowling video and they were laughing and clapping with excitement.

Do you love taking multiple trips to the zoo in the summer? What animals do your children love to see the most?

Last week was our first trip to the zoo this summer. It was a perfect day to go to the Dakota Zoo – low eighties with a slight breeze. There will definitely be more trips. We will be buying a zoo pass for the next time we go. A zoo pass is worth it since we will be taking our girls to the zoo a lot this summer.

Can you guess what Katie’s favorite movie is? Well, it used to be Ice Age. That all changed when she got the movie Rio for Christmas. Katie absolutely loves it. Whenever we ask her what she wants to watch, she says, ‘Rio.’ There are times we try to change Katie’s mind to watch something else. She’s usually fine with that. The next time Katie asks again, we usually let her watch Rio.

Sophia loves the movie Rio too. Maybe not as much as Katie does, but she is only 1 years old. Sophia loves to watch the birds sing and dance. She’ll even point at the screen and talk about it. You’ll have to check out this short video of Katie and Sophia watching Rio. They are both talking about the movie, but Sophia’s reaction is so cute and funny.

Guess what? Spring is actually here! The snow is all gone. The ground is still damp, but I’d take that over snow.

One day last week got to 78 degrees. It was a perfect day to go outside. My husband got off of work early, so we decided to take the girls outside to play in the afternoon. Of course, we had to go take a park adventure. Katie has wanted to go to the park all winter. Plus this was Sophia’s first experience of playing in the park.

A Day Full of Fun

The other day was a good day. I was able to get out of the house for about an hour in the afternoon. And did I mention that I was all by myself? I don’t get very much time to myself since I’m very busy with my two girls. I so enjoyed that hour of me time. I was able to get my hair cut and styled. You can check out the before and after here. While I was gone, my husband wrote a blog post on giving your wife a day off.

When I came home, my girls were still asleep. Yay! So I was able to get some work done for my part time job and do a little blog writing.

The day didn’t end there. Since it was so nice outside, my husband and I had to take our girls out to enjoy the rest of the evening.
