Well things did get a lot better as the day went on. We were trying to leave today and we had all the kids go to the bathroom. Well Spencer decided it was bath time. Jeff was helping Hunter and was about to put Spencer into the bathroom and turned to see him completely naked wanting a bath. Jeff said no so what is a boy to do. He decided to run around our apartment naked saying bath, bath, bath. Jeff and I could not stop laughing.
Well we all went to the bathroom and finally got our clothes on. We got to ride the tram. The two boys really wanted to ride the "Machine" (tram). When we called our lawyer this morning she told the kids what we were doing. They were really excited about the tram ride. We don't think they knew what a zoo was.
We get to the zoo and at first they would stand off a bit thinking the animals would come closer and get them. This thought did not last too long at all. After the third animal they were all climbing and getting right up to the glass. It was a hit! There was one horse that you could reach and we let the kids touch him. The zoo even had a squirrel exhibit, which I found very funny. Not all the animals were out since it was very cold still. We almost left but the sun came out and the kids were still going right through nap time (we found this to be a mistake later). The zoo was close to a lake and several people were out there ice fishing. Elliana made it most of the day walking but we carried her in the end. I was carrying her when were watching the seal and she gave me 3 kisses and a big hug. I just about melted. Jeff tried to get a kiss but she said "no daddy."
We got back around 3:30 and let the kids have a bath to warm up. They keep finding fun new things to do in a bathtub. This time they would try to talk underwater. They also put the bowls we gave them on their heads. Super cute.
We did not give them naps which might have been a mistake. The boys were overly exhausted and running round. They were being goofy one moment and causing trouble the next moment. The kids really liked tonight dinner which was some kind of pork rolled in pasta. It was good. It reminded me of ravioli. Everyone ate their peas too! We gave them chocolate milk. They have never had it before. Today was their 3rd time trying it. They get really excited and want to drink it with a spoon. It takes them 30 min to drink a glass with a spoon. They also want to share it with each other, even when they each have their own. It is cute. Sometimes they are willing to share with Jeff and I.
