And on his farm he had some lambs and penguins

Last week, the boys and I went to Mountain Home for a few days with the grandparents. During our stay, we made a trip out to some friends' farm to see some animals. They had lambs that had literally been born the day before we came, chickens, bunnies, and dogs for the kids to see.

A three day old lamb. so precious
Such a closeup, but oh so cute. Here's our Max. All smiles and happiness.
We eventually packed up and made the journey back to the big city to see Rob/Daddy and had a great, relaxing weekend. Thank goodness the warm returned. Soon I'll be blogging about the dad gum heat, but seriously? That little cold spell wasn't a fun joke Madre Nature!

This past Monday was a real boring day....It rained....and poured.....and I am too accident prone to get two kids out when it rains, pours, blows, and sleet/hail/snow/slushes outside. So, we stayed in and read 20 books, played blocks and playdough, lots of army men, and watched some movies.

But Tuesday? Tuesday we got to meet some friends at the zoo. They have penguins now. I didn't know I loved penguins. I love penguins. I'm not sure I want to be real close to one, but through a glass partition, yes please.
Here's Ry trying to be one with the monkeys.

The penguin exhibit. Look how excited Ry is about it!
And at some point, these three cuties gave us the cutest show in town. To Rylan, these girls are Diddy and Harpie, to everyone else they are Lily and Harper.
