Fast Friday

Who's ready for the weekend?  It's Friday and that means that I have a fast Friday for you today.

Last Friday was Trevon's 30th birthday. He spent the day shopping for a truck while I watched the kids and I'd be lying if I said we were all happy by the end of the day.  It was a rough day for all of us. It was rainy and cold (much like the rest of that week had been) and the kids were driving me crazy and I was disappointed in the lack of fun things we'd done for spring break and Trevon wasn't having luck finding the right truck. So instead of trying to force everyone to be happy and save the evening, we pretended that Saturday was his birthday instead.

We went to the Children's Discovery Museum in Salt Lake City. It was another really rainy day so we were really glad to find something to do inside. It was so fun too. They have a ton of different stations for the kids to play at. They had a farm where they got to sit on a horse and learn about gardening and farming.

A grocery store where they got to learn about budget and pretend to shop and pay for groceries.

A construction zone

A mini playhouse (we decided when we get a house someday with a playroom we want to make it like this)

They even had a "playground" section with jump ropes, balls, Foursquare, and gymnastics mats.

And a lot more! It was so much fun and we didn't have to wait in line for anything. After we played there all morning, we stopped to eat at Costa Veda. I got their nachos and I was glad I got the large because I was starving!

Monday was the last day of spring break for us and the weather was finally nice! We took advantage of that and went hiking at Rock Canyon. I'll share more about this hike on Monday.  It was so much fun to get out and get some exercise! And it was the perfect way to end spring break.

After school on Tuesday, we went to my parent's house and played more with the cousins. They are best friends and I love that! While they were playing outside, they found a duck egg on my parent's pool top.  So we carefully got it off and made a nest for it. There's a good chance this egg isn't alive, but if it is, my sister might end up with a pet duck.

Then something amazing happened. After a month (or longer) of searching, Trevon finally settled on a truck and brought it home! You would think it was a new addition to the family.  It took a lot of work to get this truck here. We decided on a Toyota Tundra and I think it will be perfect.

Wednesday was another really amazing weather day. We spent as much time as possible outside!  We played in the sandbox, and had our first popsicles for the season, rode bikes and just relaxed.

Wednesday evening J wanted to go on a run to start working towards a race her school is having this year. She did the race last year too! So we went on a quick run. She made it a full mile without stopping and she hasn't run with me since last year when we were working for her first race! M ran the first half of the run with us too.

Then on Thursday, the girls started gymnastics up again. They have loved doing this so far.
