It’s been a very hectic week this week – some of which I have no desire to go into. But the end wasn’t as bad, in my opinion. Friday we ended up rushing in for an unplanned Ultrasound and we found out we’re having a girl! We’re very excited for the news and excited to get going on all the clothes and baby prep to be done. (Okay, so I’m a little bit of an early nester this time around and I’m excited to begin this… lol.)
Friday night we stayed home and Cameron met with a man who wanted to buy our Blazer. We sold the Blazer to him, he drove it home and for less than 24 hours we had one vehicle. It was sort of tricky as we hadn’t yet seen the Trail Blazer we wanted to purchase in person, only online, as well as also speaking to the owner a couple of times. So basically, because of preschool for Olivia, we HAD to find a car the next day!
The Trail Blazer was out in Kaysville and we drove the Malibu out there and to our happy surprise, we loved the Trail Blazer and purchased it right then. So now, as the kids repeat every time we walk outside to get in the car, we now have “the NEW car” – which is actually 4 years old. 😛 Kids!
That afternoon we ran home, went grocery shopping, a couple of other errands on the way, and then after dropping off the groceries we went to the Hogle Zoo. It was a pay-no-attention-to-mom day, the kids were a little over energized thanks to our candy idea while in Macey’s and so I didn’t get very many photos. Those that I did get turned out like the first photo and the one following:
Yeeah… that’s some Starburst and WONDERFUL face making action going on there, folks. Pleasant isn’t it? Regardless – they were HAPPY to have Starburst and happy to see that while there was one less elephant now, the ones that were still at the Zoo were out and eating and entertaining all who cared to watch.
We had a good time, took the trip slower as my pregnant feet were beginning to bother me (that’s what I get for wearing thongs rather than shoes all day). The kids had fun and we finally went back to the car after a long day of MANY activities to head over to dinner.
We went to Denny’s for dinner (free kids’ meals with adults!) and the kids got to bring their Rocketship Cups to dinner. They ordered Lemonade which they immediately colored with the “magic” coloring packets and we were ready to eat! (I have no idea who this child is, but here is what their rocketship cups look like…)
All in all it was a very tired, but very fun, morning, day, AND night. Liv’s back to preschool tomorrow and of course I have about 50 different things to do before that to get the new car liscensed and registered and ALL that fun stuff. 🙂
Wish me luck. 🙂
