We didn’t participate in any official egg hunts this year. The first Saturday that opportunity arose, it was 32 degrees at hunt time, and the following Saturday, it was rainy. Fortunately the girls didn’t even know where and when the hunts existed but kept asking if they could have one. So, on Monday we filled some plastic eggs with wrapped chocolate and the rest with marbles. We created the hunt three times, each girl plus Mom taking turns hiding the eggs. The girls were mighty quick in spotting them!
We met up with some friends at the Children’s museum and all the girls (and parents!) had a blast! They built with blocks and used pulleys to get the blocks up to the top of the cuckoo clock. They played in the grocery, the veterinarian office, in a spaceship, the doctor’s office, on a police motorcycle, on airplanes and much more. They even had their faces painted. The funniest part of the morning was the impression pins that all of us stuck our faces into and made “masks.”
All of us, including Dad, visited the zoo on a chilly-ish day last week. We only walked half the zoo but that was about plenty. And this time, we viewed the IMAX movie about humpback whales. The girls sought out their favorite animals (Koma – lion and Unni – okapi). We ended the day with some yummy pizza at a very cool restaurant mid-town which uses NYC-esque water!
