Mother's Day Fun

I had an enjoyable Mother's Day with my boys yesterday! Nick of course had to work, so I only saw him for a couple of hours in the afternoon and then later at night. However, our friends were in town with their 17 month old son so we decided to go out for some fun!

The Kansas City Zoo was nice enough to offer free admission to all mom's yesterday. Considering small kids (2 and under I think?) are free this made for a super cheap outing! We packed a picnic lunch for the boys and loaded up the cars and headed to the zoo to join the thousands of other people who had the same idea.

The boys had a great time looking at the animals and announcing what each animal "says" which, for the record, is "roar!". Yes, even elephants "roar". I think a little too much fun was had though as about half-way through Africa I heard some exclaim as I walked by that "number 2 was falling asleep". I turned around to see Tyler bobbing his head around, trying to fall asleep sitting up in the Choo Choo.

He was successful in sleeping that way for about 30 minutes, which then meant when we got home about an hour later he wouldn't nap. Oh well. Chase also found a way to dose in the Choo Choo. His position resulted in a lot less bobbing than Tyler's did.

And finally, this is the gift I got my awesome mom! When all the cousins were together last week I snapped this beauty of all 6 kids, printed an 8x10 of it, stuck it in a frame and mailed it to my mom. How we managed to get all 6 kids looking straight ahead is beyond me!

that is awesome. I managed to do the same pictures except there are 11 grandchildren and 9 of them are under the age of 3.

Helen-what an AWESOME cousin's shot! You're a pro! Wanna head out my way and get my 5 to look at the camera?

The zoo looks like fun. I think I'm going to try the "mini" zoo near us with the triplets this week. If I feel brave.
