How was your weekend?
Friday, I took off work a bit early so I could get a hike in before the sun went down. It was much needed after a pretty tough week.
That evening, both girls went to the basketball game at their high school. I got to enjoy a quiet, empty house. It was heavenly! Why don’t basketball games last longer?… ;-)
Saturday morning, OMG Becky attended a visitation for her former teacher. Hard morning for her. We then took ourselves to the zoo. It was a gorgeous day, almost 60 degrees. We needed to be outside!
The lorikeets enclosure is just nuts. Those birds fly right at you from all directions!
The kids wouldn’t even go in there with me. OMG Becky may have a small fear of birds. This “attraction” would not help that.
One of the funnier parts of our day… OMG Becky went into this mock meerkat burrow. As she was trying to come out, that little girl in the purple about knocked her over with an “excuse me!” as she tried to push her way in at the same time.
So funny OMB Becky was almost taken out by a seven year old.
Another fun part of our day was an impromptu piano performance by OMG Becky’s friend. We suddenly had a small crowd gathered around to listen and take video of him.
He’s really good, even on a very out of tune piano!
We worked up a bit of an appetite after all of that exploring. Froyo for an almost-summer-like day!
I tried all new-to-me flavors: Salted Caramel Corn, Toasted Marshmallow, Pecan Praline, and Peppermint Stick. Yum, yum, yum, and YUM! Well, maybe except for the Peppermint Stick. It was good the first couple of bits and then started tasting very artificial. Sad, because peppermint ice cream is one of my all-time favorite flavors.
Sunday was another sad day for us. My great aunt passed away last week and we had her memorial service yesterday afternoon. We spent the morning baking cookies for a family dinner after the service.
My niece enjoyed all of the desserts. Literally, one of each type.
Her sugar crash happened shortly after that. I’m pretty sure she fell asleep maybe two minutes into their drive home.
What was the highlight of your weekend?
What is your favorite animal at the zoo? I love to watch the penguins swimming around. They are so fast!
