Emma got her report card last week and of course, came away with all +'s :)
I have been absolutely swamped these past few weeks! It seems like I can't catch my own breath! I hope you all are having a happy spring!! Pin It
Thursday I had a doctor's appointment, but right afterwards, we left with some friends to go to the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks. Emma had a free admission ticket from having a good tooth checkup at her dentist's. When we got there, the line to get in was extremely long, but we ventured in anyways. Bad choice. It was so crowded that we couldn't really see everything well, and Evan's stroller wasn't helping at all. Luckily, we had been there several times, and not much has changed besides the addition of the otters, so it was okay. The good thing is that Evan won't remember this as his first trip - a bunch of kneecaps isn't the best aquarium experience one could have...but he loved watching the sharks and rays swim!!

Every year, we took a photo of Emma sitting here. :)
Today is Saturday, and the first Saturday we've had in almost a year that we are home to relax and stay at home. It's crazy!! I'm sad to see Spring Break end, but we had a lot of fun on a dime! :)
The three of us at Joes - Evan is thinking mommy & sis are a little crazy!!
Evan and his good luck tattoo :)
The famous green eggs & ham
The eggs were REALLY green, and Emma said that they were better than the green eggs at school (gee, I hope they were supposed to be green...). Then, off we went! My sister (auntie Pickle) lives about 45 minutes away in Edmond. She had invited Emma up to go to the Build-A-Bear Workshop to pick out an animal. She got a bunny, and named her Rainbow.

Afterwards, we went to the park by her house and did some swinging in the sunshine :)
For dinner, I made green mashed potatoes & salad, and John grilled chicken breasts. The family came over and we all enjoyed the end of a perfectly beautiful green day :)

The old Hotel, with Emma digging through the "treasures" of free junk.
Free iron, anyone?? The rest of the treasures were equally wonderful...
Here's the saloon on the far left and the stables (with free ironing boards) on the right.
Emma & my mom in front of the house (on the left). On the right was a cabin that was used to recreate the birthplace of Jim Thorpe. In reality, it was moved here from the VERY FIRST homestead in Payne County.
Emma sits in the Student Union Gardens. The union itself is behind her. (Along with the classroom building)
Here's baby Evan in a planter by the pond. He thought it was great fun that he could play with his crocs without effort!
Hee hee! So cute!
My cutie with a blue-coconut slush mouth fom Sonic!
A more formal family photo was taken, but this one sums up our family perfectly. ♥
I can't wait to see what spontaneous trips the rest of the week takes us on!Pin It
Emma double checking...

3-2-1!! And they're off!!
It was a really cute race with all the little girls there. And a lot of cute cars (one was my favorite red-eyed tree frog!). It was a project they'll always have together.
Coming up... John & My birthday pics!
Anyway, so ends another day in the Castro Zoo! Hopefully tomorrow will go better than today! :) Goodnight!
