Have you ever been to the park in Liberty?

IMG_5928

They have the BEST slide.

It’s old school.

Way too high, and slick metal.

If your mean like me, you send your kids up the slide without one warning about how good old slides were actually fast and slick.  And then you listen to them scream all the way down.

Good times.

Little sister was the only smart one.

She never even attempted to go up the stairs.

Getting a still picture of this kid is a rare occasion.

Hello.

The girls were very happy and probably a little shocked when I came home with Halloween Pony Tail Holders a few days ago.  Totally not like their plain, boring mom to get frilly stuff.

They were a dollar.

And I was therapy shopping. :)

What else can I say?

So this morning we had to have a photo shoot of their cute hair and Halloween outfits, which they planned together.

Cute little stinkers.

And of course we had to have a short shake your boo-tay session!

Did you know I hate going on field trips? I do. I loath it.

But I go and I fake it because they beg me to come.

So a few weeks ago I had got to go on 2 field trips in one week.  The first one started out with me getting a ticket. Uh Huh. Loath Field Trips!  Add to it the fact that I got stuck with the most obnoxious little girl on the planet and we were going to the Ogden Nature Reserve (aka-the most boring place on the planet) and you can guess how much fun I had.

Seriously though, in my defense 2 other parents whispered to me how they wanted to smack her. Yes, they used the word smack.  10 minutes into it and Jena asked me if we could just ditch her!

She was that bad, for 5 hours.

I cried on the way home.

Really.

Mostly because of the ticket and pregnancy hormones but that little girl did not make things better.

The second half was at a Fish Farm and that was much better.

Jena with her fish which she refused to touch.

Check out the fish.

It was pretty cool.

Ry’s field trip was to the zoo. Again, I’m not a big fan but I know I’m not the only one. Plus Field trip days there are usually so packed you can’t even see the animals.

I have to say that this was the most enjoyable field trip I have ever been on. I was assigned Ry and one other boy.

Sweet.

And there were hardly any kids there that day.

Double Sweet.

Ryan’s favorite part of the whole trip?

IMG_0157

The mother elephant pooped and peed. And if you have never seen an elephant pee, you really should. It is…I don’t have words.

Add to that the baby elephant eating the mom’s poop.

It was a little boys dream come true! I mean seriously can you think of anything more entertaining at the zoo?

We had to go back 3 times just to see if the elephant would pee again.

I’d be lying if I said it didn’t totally fascinate me.

Ry thought he was pretty awesome for being as big as a Female Gorilla.

Can’t resist the water ball thingy and splashing the squealy girls.

IMG_0163

The very anti-climactic train ride.

I’m not really sure what they were expecting.

Thus concludes our adventures in Field Tripping.

Barry is taking off work for the next round!

It’s download the pictures on my phone day.

Which mean completely random posts.

Aren’t you excited?

She cracks me up.

The only pictures I have of the first day of school.

I went back to Ry’s classroom and made him come out for a picture.

He was not pleased.

IMG_0083

Just a randomly cute picture of Sara.

About a month ago Granny, Teri, Sara and I all went to lunch and had a girls day.

Sara picked up this purse from Teri’s house and insisted on taking it everywhere we went.

IMG_0109

It was so cute but she didn’t want me taking her picture.

IMG_0113

This one is the best, you can just see the attitude in her walk.

This is what came home from school yesterday.

IMG_0312

I’m not really sure what to say about it.

He was so pleased with himself.

The shirt did not survive.

The jury is still out on the child.
