Spring Break Day 4 & 5

Sorry, guys. Even I am getting sick of posting this stuff...

Day 4 found us at Jungle Jim's. It was a little more for the younger kids but, sure enough, my boys made it fun for everyone.

See Mommy sitting on the wrong side of the ride? I thought I had it right, but I about crushed Scotty when the ride was at full speed.


The boys also loved the bumper cars. At one point Mikey got upset with Zachary because he kept crashing into Mikey. We watched as Mikey slipped away quietly and drove around the entire driving area (we could see the wheels turning in his head the whole time) and came up behind Zachary going as fast as he could and rear-ended him pretty hard. Our boys don't fight very often, but he was pretty frustrated. We are upset that we didn't get it on film because it was so funny and yet soooo calculated.



Sweet little Emily has been such a trooper. She has been stuck in her stroller all week long and has barely fussed at all. She seemed to enjoy the merry-go-round and every time we would loop around and see Zack, she would watch him until she was nearly laying down. Such a Daddy's girl!



After that we dropped Emily off with my mom & dad and went to see the movie Horton Hears a Who. Sadly, I didn't even know what it was about, but I really enjoyed it. There were several religious undertones that I loved. At one point in the movie, Zachary leaned over to Zack and said, "This kinda reminds me of Abinadi." My heart soared! It does sink in after all!
Oddly enough, I really enjoyed the character named Katie. A small part, but really fun. The movie was a lot of fun and I look forward to it coming out on DVD.




The next day was Zachary's 11th birthday. We ran up to Boondocks. We had never been there before, but really had a lot of fun. They boys loved the go-karts and the laser tag.

I could see Mikey doing that! Do you remember going to Jungle Jim's with us on my 8th birthday?

Amber said...

Yes, and I also remember leading your blind friend (I think her name was also Amber) right into a pole. I still feel really bad about that!
