Spring Break continued. . .

Tues morning Ainsley had the letter U show and tell at preschool. . .she brought an umbrella, unicorn, ugly fruit and ukelele (thanks to grammy).
When we picked her up, the van was all loaded and we headed on a road trip to NE. We enjoyed swimming (esp watching daddy jump in the water silly ways), touring the city and neighborhood we lived in there (Ainsley went in the pizza place and told the worker excitedly that this is where she lived when she was a baby), eating Cheesecake Factory, and exploring the hotel. We woke up Wed morning, ate breakfast in bed, and headed to the zoo. This was the view out of our hotel window during our Spring Break getaway. Missouri River/tropical waters. . what's the difference?! :) When Ainsley was little, she LOVED the sea turtles at the zoo, and we thought the aquarium would be their favorite. They did like the sharks,
but their favorite by far was the rainforest/jungle!! They crossed the rickety bridge over the waterfall as many times as we'd let them. . .can you see us?!The kids loved the rocks you could climb to get to secret hideaways. . .I think the pic of Porter in the wagon with his dirty feet sticking out is great :). . .GooF and I, on the other hand, were SWEATING in there and couldn't wait to cool off in the 50 degree weather. The dessert dome was pretty exciting because they had seen it from the road. .
The Butterfly house. . .Some gorilla fun while we had a banana break. . .

Ainsley was excited to see Bambio, who was a gorilla born about the time she was born. We used to watch him get rocked as a baby. Here's Miss Ainsley around Trey's age at the zoo. And, the ride home. . .On a side note, Ainsley has begun making friends wherever we go. On the way we stopped at a play area (you know, we don't travel over 2 hrs without stopping) and before I knew it Ainsley was playing hide and seek with a little girl. Then at the zoo she made a friend with a little girl who asked her if she was a Husker fan :) GooF's favorite part of the trip was when Porter accidentally knocked over a giant Easter egg at the mall. . am sad to say I missed that one :)

Ainsley also did swimming lessons this month at an indoor, warm facility. She learned to float on her back and then kick her legs and swim on her back! She also learned to jump in and go under without plugging her nose.

I haven't done a NOT ME for awhile, so here goes.

I DID NOT allow Porter to go into a bathroom stall on his own at church a few Wed nights ago. And even if I had, he would have properly gone potty. He DID NOT get potty all over his pants, and most definitely DID NOT wear his sisters PINK pants to his class, without underwear, bc that's all we had extra in the van.

I DID NOT ask Trey to say, "mommy will you please do it," to which he DID NOT respond, "DO IT!" Even if he had, his most favorite phrases are NOT "read it," "play it," and "do it!" 19 month olds are not demanding. . .do you think?!
