Our Wild Weekend Sept 18-19

"Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" - Mary Oliver

We started off our Saturday morning with a birthday party! Yes, it is that time of year again. Summer is a little bit less hectic when it comes to birthdays around here. Now that we are into the fall, we will have party, after party, after party! This was a great chance to reconnect with an "old" friend who no longer comes to our daycare. It is always fun to see how much our little ones grow as they move on.

The party was a lot of fun. Dane enjoyed spending time with some of his friends in a different setting, and honestly, who doesn't love the children's museum? His favorite activity this time was the intestine slide.

Oh, and you can't forget the turtle habitat!

For the rest of our weekend, literally hours on end..... We did one of two things: worked on the play structure or played Wii. Jack, and Walt came over and helped Allan move the structure into place while Dane and I were at the party. Allan I put in probably about 8 hours on the structure after on Saturday.......

On Sunday, we spent another good 9-10 hours working on the project. Dane's cousins came over to check things out and play for a few.

We finished the structure and moved a good portion of sand around just as it was starting to get dark.

Then, we finished our Sunday night off with some seriously intense Mario Kart Wii and Mario and Sonic at the Olympic games. For the first time, (I think ever!) I beat Dane in Mario Kart! That was definitely wild!!!!
