Tulips die
They will grow back
Spring Flower
When the rays of sunshine hit them
They could burn up
Delicate flower

This is a poem Tommy wrote at school. I was suprised when I saw it because he HATES writing, but he was actually pretty proud of this poem!  It's very Tommy.  I thought I would post this today because Tommy is not feeling well. He has a viral infection that is causing a horrible cough, and he's actually missing one of the last three days of school!  Poor guy.

Dallas Zoo!

Last Wednesday, Eddie's preschool took a trip to the Dallas Zoo!  It took some crazy rescheduling for me to be able to go, but it was SO worth it!  We haven't been to the Dallas Zoo in about two years, so I was really surprised by how much it has changed!
 The boys gravitated to ANY thing they could climb on!  Eddie was constantly wandering off to climb on something!
 There's an entire herd of these big elephants and Eddie loved "riding" it!
 The penquins were one of Eddie's favorites.  Unfortunately, the tank was having some trouble the day we went, so the penguins mainly stayed out of the water.

 The new savannah exhibit is probably the biggest change they made!  It's amazing!! Eddie and I enjoyed chilling at the Base Camp and watching the elephants.
 The giraff exhibit is SO cool!  You can buy food to feed them and they eat right out of your hand and get in your face! 
 Thanks to another parent there, Eddie got some lettuce to feed the giraff.  That's his little hand you see below. SO fun!
We ended our trip at the Children's Zoo, where Eddie got COMPLETELY soaked! He loved playing in the water, but sadly, I didn't seem to get any pics of him there.  Overall, it was a great trip, and now that the zoo is so much nicer, I might have to renew our family membership!

Muddy Mess

On Sunday evening, I went outside to water some plants.  This is what happened when the kids discovered mud.  It was all Anna's idea, and they had the time of their lives!
