Mother's Day was also this month. Josh and the kids gave me a shopping spree to Sephora! They also got me some under-the-cabinet lights. I am loving cooking with light!
We went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs with one of Corbin's friends, Andrew. The kids got to feed the giraffes, that's the closest I have ever been to a giraffe! The kids thought it was great!
It was finally warm enough for us to go on our first campout of the season over Memorial Day weekend. The kids loved it! We roasted hot dogs for dinner (and smores of course). Then for breakfast we cooked pancakes and bacon on the fire! The kids thought that was about the best breakfast ever.
On Memorial Day we went to the Wings Over the Rockies airplane museum. The kids loved seeing all the airplanes.
Last weekend we took a long weekend and drove up to South Dakota, about 7 hours from our house. We stayed in a hotel with an indoor waterpark. The kids had so much fun swimming! Corbin and Josh went down the huge tube water slides about 100 times, seriously. Audra even had fun going down the slides. We also went to Bear World where we drove through dozens of bears, Elk and other wild animals. The kids thought it was great!!!! We also went to Storybook Park. It had a ton of life size statues of fairytale characters, as well as little castles and houses that the kids could play in. We were there for 3 hours at least. The kids thought it was so fun to sleep in a hotel. We also saw Mount Rushmore, an American bucket list item. It was pretty neat to finally see it in real life!
|Picture from our drive to SD. This is 2 hours past the kids bedtime. Corbin fell asleep right around bedtime, Audra was bouncing off the walls until at least 9! Crazy girl.|
