We started our Tuesday with the rather fun activity of making paper fans… we took rectangular pieces of white paper (in hindsight cardstock may have been a better choice) and drew Independence Day themed pictures… fireworks, flags, etc. We then used an accordion fold and stapled it at the base. Another idea out of one of our books. But something I remembered making as a child myself! Fun!!
July 4th themed!
We had a Lego magazine come in the mail (we have a couple of their free subscriptions). This was geared at the younger group so the 3 littles sat down and enjoyed it together.
Gavin was totally in the puzzle mood. We got some lovely new ones in our latest package from Gammie!
We played around with some different brands of bubble soap. Sadly still not as good as the machine’s brand!
Got some sun though
There was a little time for a dino dig as well! But we kept it rather sedate as Wednesday was a day with a big plan!
THE ZOO!!! We made plans to meet up with Steven and Quinn, and then once Bree got done work and such we added in Lily and mom.
We had sun, rain and fun in the rain! It was terrific!
Drowned rats, happy but drowned
Sunning Sea Lion… be sure to check our zoo overflow HERE.
YOU CAN CHECK OUT THE REST OF OUR PHOTOS FROM THE ZOO HERE.
Ken got to relive a bit of his childhood and made a plastic mold in one of the machines they have around the zoo. We made a gorilla. The plan is to get a different one each visit.
I am just so pleased… Ken’s anniversary present got here as well! A special t-shirt based on a saying I saw on a Grumpy Cat picture off Facebook. He was well pleased!!!
