Ah Monday. Hear the sound of silence? That would be because my kiddo is back at school. Yippeee! I love him but two weeks spring break… are you kidding me? We did do a few things. We played scientist doing lots of experiments with water, learning what sinks and what floats. We also pretended to be the Mythbusters. hehe, that was cool.
Mint Mentos + Diet Coke = Exploding fun for the whole family!
Unfortunately I seem to have deleted the video file by accident. Darn it. I guess we’ll have to just do it again. Over the last two weeks there was plenty of whining (by them and me) and lots of playdough, videos, cooking, whining, lego’s, playstation (kid loves golf) and more whining. But we survived it somehow.
It’s Monday, as I said, so that means it’s time to report in for Club HASAY over at Casey’s place. This week I did really well. I did pilates and yoga on Monday and did yoga all week (with my seven year old playing along, very funny to watch). I haven’t gotten to run this week with the weather being rainy all week though. I may be participating in a charity 5k this summer so that has helped me to make sure the days it doesn’t rain I am out there pounding the pavement. Motivation. The key to success.
I admit to eating ice cream and a few M&M’s this week but I’ve cut out the Milka Caramel (wahhh!) and changed over to rice cakes occasionally with peanut butter as my nighttime snack. I’m finding the best way to get with this healthy kick is having good support, like the Club HASAYers. How did you do this week?
Yesterday was a beautiful day so we took the kids to the Cologne Zoo. We went when we first moved here three years ago and loved it. This was Chick’s first zoo visit and she is an animal nut so she was very excited. The zoo is one of the best in Europe and a short thirty minutes ride from our house.
We saw Meerkats:
We saw Zebras:
We saw Tigers:
Elephants are always a big hit:
And of course no trip is completely without Hippo’s and Gorilla’s:
Naturally we have a lot more photos including some great ones taken by Boo but I won’t bore you with all of them. How did you spend your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
