A great mid-winter break!!

Even though the week began on a bad note with our dog passing away and then finding out that our other dog has some health issues we seemed to pick things up towards the end and have a great time!

Thankfully our female dog can be cured and we are already on the road to recovery but it may take a few months to get there. I am going to try to be patient with it as long as I know that she will be OK in the end. I do have to say that I am a little paranoid at the moment, constantly checking to see if she is eating and drinking, wanting her to pop up when I walk over to see her... but this too shall pass.

So as the week progressed we had so much fun!

There was lots of baseball on the agenda. This is to be expected though and I can't wait until the games start later in the week. GO VIKINGS!!

Chris was actually off from Thursday to Saturday during break. I do not really remember the last time he had off 3 days in a row! Of course to get that he had to work 13 in a row (which is never fun).

Lets see if I can remember all we did on those three days off....

Thursday we spent almost all day down in the basement. It was time to clean out and go through all the boxes that were packed up from our move into the new house..... 2 1/2 years ago!! Yeah, I found things that I thought I lost and things that I would never have missed!

I wish I took pictures of the "goodwill" pile as well as the "take to the dump" pile. Thankfully my dad was free in the afternoon so we could load up his truck and he was the hauler!! It was a long day but the four of us really liked the way the basement looked when we were through. Maybe I will get down there in the next day or two and take some "after" pictures.

Chris and I were going to have a date night on Friday. We had planned on taking K to Grandma's house and let the boys have a free night at home but instead we canceled date night and did a family day instead. We all agreed on the Wild Animal Safari that is less than an hour away. Chris had never been and the boys actually were excited about it. It was amazing that we did not have to talk either one of the boys into going.

The latest vehicle... no way were we going to take our car into the safari!

Kennedi was very unsure about the whole thing but in the end she was trying to hang her head out the window and was calling for the animals to come over... we were constantly hearing, "Come, come" when she was an animal. Of course when the animal came over, she would get to the other side of the van as soon as she could.

Up close and personal!

The emu was greedy... it was constantly trying to come into the window to get some food.

My little tiger... this was in the walk about area. Kennedi loved all the animals.

ahhh there is so much more to the weekend but I think I will do the rest in another post at a later time.
