Friday afternoon, the boys and I took advantage of the mild weather and went to the zoo. We did eventually make it inside the zoo, but only after I dragged them away from the pond outside of the zoo. I think they could have poked frozen fish with sticks all afternoon if I had let them! (hmmm . . . fish sticks?!)
Saturday and Sunday were colder and rainy - lots of rain; I'm very glad it wasn't snow. Sunday afternoon we played one our newest family board games - "Ticket to Ride". It's a great game (made by Days of Wonder). If you've never heard of this game or company, you should check them out. They're typically sold through educational toy stores and on-line. The object of the game is to get the most points by claiming railway routes across the USA. Very fun, and educational!
The game is too hard for Aaron, but he did a great job playing by himself with Legos most of the time; until he came bouncing in wearing a goofy hat to get some attention!
