Mega weekend

Our mega-weekend started on Friday, which felt very lazy and weekend-y and saw the kids and me tramping around the freezing cold zoo because we are so sick of sitting inside our house but are also scared to hit the germy mall playground during cold and flu season.

Do you know what there aren't many of at the freezing cold zoo? Animals. We saw seals, the ass-end of a napping polar bear and some penguins. Then we headed into the reptile house which smells like crap but offers a few cool things to touch.

Saturday, we hung out with Max, Lucy, and Jacob, and all the kids had a blast. Harry was so hyper we thought he might spontaneously combust.

Then my brother Jon flew in from New Jersey for the weekend, and Harry and Jack were beyond excited to see him

Clearly my dad had a blast

Not sure what was going on here

There was a wicked ice storm, which ended up being fun because my parents hung around for awhile, and we all ate pizza and donuts and did nothing together.

Today, I went with Harry and his class to see a production of Ferdinand the Bull, which was adorable (the play and the field trip experience).

This week promises to be exciting, too, so stay tuned.


  1. I laughed at loud at your dad laying his head on the table. Ha!

  2. Looks like lots of fun!! Love the freezing zoo.
