What a crazy week we've had! Millie, Shannon and I visited the Wild Animal Park. The girls had a great time. Millie was very brave and held a small cup of nectar for the Lorikeets. The birds lined up on the railing and drank from the cup. Now, Millie wants cups of nectar for all of the birds she sees.
The whole family went over tho the Yingst home for dinner the other night. Alan and Barbara were there too. As soon as we arrived, Millie and Ciera jumped into the princess dresses and Gio headed for Keane's room, A.K.A. the room with the noisy toys. As soon as we were finished eating our tasty dinner it was time to ROCK! The kids had a chance to play Rock Band first and Ciera wowed us with her amazing vocals on Nirvana's "In Bloom". Yes. She actually sings it with the mic part turned on and knows all of the words. She calls this song "Sell the kids for food" which makes it even better. Gio is great at helping the band's drummer fail out consistently and Millie preferred to "cook" food for everyone in the play kitchen. The grown ups got a chance while to play while the Dads took turns watching the kids. I am officially the worst drummer on the planet and decided to become the band photographer :)
To cap off the fun filled week Gio, Millie, and I went to the zoo with our friends Kristen and Kayana. The kids were champs. They all took turns walking. They all seemed to enjoy most the time we spent eating lunch. We sat on logs in a little grassy area and the kids chased each other around. Gio even found a new family... I looked over to see him sitting with a family who was trying to take a photo. Gio thought he'd join their family picture! They thought it was funny; I could hardly contain myself enough to get him off of their laps.
Watch out for more fun! Gio's school decided that spring break should be two weeks. We will see what happens next week.
