Creek Wading

Today we took the girls to Fontanel to wade in the creek.  They had a blast!

Washing Carla

Devon and the girls washed the car, Carla, this afternoon.  Yes, our car does have a name.  Doesn't yours?  Actually, Carla got her name from Cadence.  I've never really been the car naming type.
They started out washing the car, then had a water fight with the hose and eventually pulled out water guns.  But, the water guns were cheapies from the dollar store, so they didn't work too well:-/

Going to the Chapel...

We had a wedding today.
 When you have a house full of girls you have to improvise for the groom.
Unfortunately, a marker mustache doesn't stay on too well and the bride ends up with one too.

Cadence the Little Zoologist

Cadence just finished a six week class at the zoo.  We talked about one of the different five senses in each class.  We also were able to meet two animals each class.
 The first class we discussed hearing.  We met a chinchilla and
 an owl.
 She made this adorable owl mask.
The second class was sight.  We met a spider (which I did not know had eight eyes, but thanks to Diego, Cadence knew) and
 the biggest rabbit we had ever seen!
 She made a cute clay spider.
 She liked playing with the stuffed animals before class started.
 We talked about smell.  We met a skunk and
 a snake.
 She made this skunk hat.
 She loved posing with the lions on our way to the car!
 On the fourth day we talked about taste.  We met a turtle and
 a skink.
 She made a fruit loop necklace that was gone before we were out of the parking lot!  She likes fruit loops and we never buy them at home, so it was a special treat!
 More lion posing...
 The topic for the fifth class was touch.  We met a hedgehog and 
 an armadillo.  I didn't know armadillos could roll into balls like this little guy did.

 They made hats for their dinosaur visit on the last class day.
Cadence gave me a drawing lesson while we were waiting for the last class to start.

The zoo has a dinosaur exhibit right now.  We have been through it with sisters, but Cadence was excited to go back.

 The class posed with the T-Rex.
 Cadence enjoyed playing paleontologist and digging for bones.

 All the kiddos got a little plastic dinosaur.  We really enjoyed the class!
