The Rest of the Weekend

Sunday was pretty nasty, so the kids and I ended up hanging out at home all day. We played, watched Elmo's Potty Time (seriously, Wyatt loves it), and read books. I'm finding that if I pick up a book and start reading (even if it's one of my books - this is what I'm re-reading for the millionth time now!), Wyatt will run to the playroom and come back with 5 books in his hands. He'll sit next to me on the couch and look at his books. He obviously can't read, but he does sing his ABC's and point to letters. He's pretty silly!

That evening Brian and I went and looked at some houses. We haven't completely decided to move, but we did meet with our realtor last week and we're still trying to decide what to do. We've looked at the neighborhood before and we liked what we saw, so we went back. I guess we'll have to see what happens! We also went out to dinner and to a movie. We saw Public Enemies, which I would not suggest to anyone. It was terribly slow and boring. Brian liked the action scenes, but even he thought it moved to slowly! I Vanilla Sky'd it, which means that I hated it and contemplated leaving. Sooooooo awful (and that's coming from someone who loves Christian Bale)!

We woke up on Monday to a cool and cloudy day. It rained for a little bit, but we decided to go to the zoo since it wasn't persistent. Wyatt had a great time visiting his animal friends (he seriously asks about them almost every day), and Reese was really aware of what was going on this time. She really enjoyed looking at the animals too!

The boys entering the zoo
They both really loved the prairie dogs! A baby came right up to them to say hello!
This is Wyatt with Mikayla. She really liked Wyatt and called him and ran up to him every time they saw each other. I think she's an older woman. This is where they first met...

The boys watching the lion sleep. He was all by himself. The babies that he and his "wife" had last year were sent to Oregon last week. She had new babies a couple of months ago so she's still in hiding with them!
Being a dad to newborn lion cubs is easy work!
Reese and Mommy at the zoo!
Wyatt and Mikayla checking out the lovebirds. Seriously. This is where they said their good byes.
After the zoo we went to Doumar's for some lunch. It was Wyatt's first time actually getting something to eat and he loved it. Especially the limeade! Both kids were fast asleep by the time we got home, and Wyatt took a pretty long nap. Reese has three new teeth coming in right now, and that was the only time she really seemed to be upset. She ended up sleeping for about an hour, but that was it. Fortunately she was still cheerful!
