A Day at the Zoo and Valentines


It is that time of year already.  We had lots of Valentine's projects for school.

Brody had to fill this heart with 20 things he loved.  We found pictures of chocolate chip cookies, milk, eggs, his fav games, etc.


We also had to make a Valentine's box.  
We copied the idea we did for Mason last year.  He loved it.  


Schools were closed Friday for in service.  It was very sunny and low 60s, so we decided to venture to the zoo.  Turns out, the crowds were light and it was a perfect day for it. 


We were so happy Brinkley got to spend the day with us.  These two are pretty funny together.  They get along great, but one is all girl and one is all boy. 

This snow leopard was crazy.  


Apparently it was lunchtime.  He started going crazy when he saw Brody's chips.  



Our first time seeing the new hippo exhibit.  

It did not dissapoint!


Mason asked for this picture.



I can't tell you how excited Brody was to go to the zoo.  I guess its been a while, and he didn't really remember the details.  He just couldn't wait to get there. 





We had a blast.  Pretty sure we walked over three miles.  We def weren't smart in just asking the kids what they wanted to see next.  We ended up seeing it all.....just not in order!


Worn out. 


We went to our favorite pizza place Friday night.  
When I say favorite, I mean the kids and this free Pacman game.  

Saturday, we burned some energy at Get Air.
They did a lot of running. 

And jumping. 


Then some eating. 



Saturday afternoon, we ran to the park near our house.
 Mason rode his bike and Brody ran with John and I.  He literally ran a full mile.

After we played a bit, we all raced.
That is Brody back there throwing a fit because big brother beat him....



We woke the boys up a bit early this morning to give them the Valentine's treats. 


They each got a couple of small things.  
Mason is really into these Fly Guy books, so he was happy. 

Brobro was happy too. 





This is the minecraft box Mason wanted me to make. 


I hope he doesn't get in trouble with the creeper comment!  This particular Minecraft guy is called a Creeper.  And if you were to get Minecraft Valentine's cards, they all say something similar.  Anyways, I made sure to have Mason explain it if anyone asks!  Ugh!



And we sent some roses to each of their teachers.  It never hurts to suck up (especially when you use the term "creeper" in school!)
