Down on the farm

On Friday I went with Audrey's class on a field trip. They had an awesome playground and Audrey made a new friend.
Then she had her face painted for a pow wow.

  Then went into the tee pee to learn about the Sioux indians.
Then it was time to meet some animals. Oddly enough even though my child is terrified of animals, she went into the stall with this huge steer. This animal was huge!
Last but definitely not least it was time for a good old fashioned hayride.

Girls day out

The past few weeks have been really busy with school and activities. When I realized that Saturday the girls and I didn't have anything planned we decided to have a little girls day out. We headed downtown to play at the Exploreum first.

 We purchased a family membership last year for Christmas and I have to say it has definitely been worth it! The kids love to go there and play and the fact that it's actually educational is a huge bonus!

 After the exploreum we decided to walk around downtown. We went to the fort where the girls let their inner pirate come out.


 Then we decided to end things on a sweet note with a trip to the candy store!
We had a fantastic day and are already looking forward to doing it all again soon.

Fun Run

This past weekend Audrey and Sophie participated in their first ever race. It was our schools annual fun run they have before the fall festival. While they were far from being in first place I am still incredibly proud of them for participating.
