Yesterday morning it was just Jax and Riley, shay was at a friends house, so we took them over to the rec center for open gym time. It's for kids 5 and under and they have a blast and especially nice when the weather sucks and you cant go outside. They get all of that pent up energy out and take great naps! Its only an hour but they run and run and don't stop the whole time. When we got home it was really nice outside and I went and made snowmen with the boys.
Today we went to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science (http://www.dmns.org/). I was VERY brave and took 5 kids!!! I couldn't believe how busy it was. I don't know why, it shouldn't have surprised me, it's spring break, I should have expected it! The museum is huge, so once you found a stinkin parking spot and got inside it really wasn't that bad. The only bad thing is the price. I spent $35 for 1 adult and 4 kids (thank goodness Riley was free) and then we went and had lunch which was $27 for 4 kids meals and a burrito. I also had to factor in the gas money too, considering I drove about 80 miles round trip in my gas guzzler. All in all we had fun and it was worth the money to take them somewhere that they are learning and having fun at the same time. I haven't been there in about 5 years, so it was fun for me as well. The kids were really good and it was nice to just have fun with them and not worry about them getting into trouble.
We stopped by the pizza shop and Shay got to make his own pizza and cook it. He loves to cook! The little ones loved his cooking too! Not bad for his first pizza! Guess we know who to pass the family business to huh?I'm hoping to come up with something else for the week, but I'm afraid it's going to get ruined. Were expecting 2 more snow storms by Saturday. Crap. To top things off, I have a major sweet tooth, again. So tonight I'm going to make a chocolate cake and I'm not going to make this mistake!
