This past weekend felt part end-of-winter-break and part back-to-regular-weekends. Our friends, the Cruzen-Grossmans came over on Saturday. For Christmas we got Isaac an indoor swing-hammock-trapese bar that attaches into a doorway. (See here) Tess decided to test it out.
And so did Nora.
And then we all headed to the local park to frolic in the snow.
And when we got home there was some play on the trapeze bar.
The indoor swing is turning out to be quite a popular toy around here. :)
It was great to see our friends and spend some time with them. It had been awhile and it was definitely fun to get together.
Then on Sunday we went to the Science Museum.
Where the boys made symmetrical snowflakes.
And had a good look at various minerals.
And spent a long time making jumbo bubbles.
There was a display about designing outdoor equipment for people with physical impairments. Andrew designed a canoe for a man with no arms. I love watching this kid design things. :)
And then we went through the Hall of Mirrors…a family favorite.
And now it’s Monday morning. The kids are at school and I am ready to get my projects and time organized for the New Year. Good bye holidays and hello regular. :) Last night Andrew asked me if we were all done having fun now and I said “yes! 2013 was all about fun and 2014 will be all about no-fun!” and then…”wait. You didn’t have fun today did you? You weren’t suppose to….” ha! :)
I’d say we’re off to a pretty fun start. :) May yours be lots of fun too!
