We miss Dad!

So Dad (aka Shea) went back to work today. After a month of having fun we are forced back into a routine that doesn't include morning outings to Starbucks, trips to the zoo, laying around in our pajamas or sadly long hot showers without interuption!

It was a great month with at least 6 bloggable moments and events that I will now condense into as few as blogger will allow!


Ian started his Pint Sized Picassos class two weeks ago (and is sleeping through #3 as I type). It is a crazy fun hour and a half filled with washable paint that he has placed almost everywhere on his body and mine, home made playdough just like my mom made that he enjoys eating, stamps which are his favorite, and other art "stations" that rotate each week.

He loves watching the other kids and playing with the kitchen and slide in the room About half the time is art and the other running around with the other kids. He has discovered the sink and the step stool and insists he washes his hands whether or not they are dirty! I'm encouraging it hoping to create a handwasher since I detest sticky hands and fingers! I fear creating an obsessive compulsive behavior though!

30 Minutes At The Zoo

In a last minute decision a few weeks ago we packed the car and headed for the zoo. We arrived in the parking lot to discover that the zoo was only open for 30 minutes more! We packed Ian into the stroller and off we went! (yeah zoo membership)
It was the best zoo trip we've ever had. There were only a few zoo staff wandering around taking care of closing things and almost every animal was moving around its cage perhaps anticipating dinner. We heard the lion roar from the entrace so had to see what was going on. He was sitting going through various degrees of growling.

Ian loves the lion but was a little unsure about the noises coming from him. We plan on visiting again with only minutes before the gates close! Ian was happy the entire time, animals were great and we had our pick of parking spots!
