Spring Break 2012 Part 2

(I have decided that posting about Spring Break 2012 in parts is better for a couple of reasons: 1. I can't seem to find the time to put everything in one post for our memory book  2. Sometimes breaking things up helps me stay focused better.:))

Tuesday of spring break was spent getting Amos a new haircut and taking him to the vet to get his last round of puppy vaccinations. The kids were so funny watching him get his shots...Amos didn't wimper a bit, but John Owen let out a little wimper for him when the shot was given. Then we dropped him off and left him with the groomer. Jonah picked out a "Critter Keeper" for his recent collection of frogs and turtles while we were there.(Please see this post re: Jonah's critters) It really is a neat place to keep these critters for observation TEMPORARILY!!

Then we spent the rest of the day just enjoying the weather with baseball, walks around the circle, etc. Just being at HOME...

And we were all surprised at how different Amos looked when we picked him up later that afternoon. John Owen even asked if they might have switched our dog with another. :) Here's Amos with his new haircut at nearly five months old.

Wednesday, we fulfilled Jonah's spring break wish by going to the zoo! Jan even joined us for this excursion. Our first stop was the new Dinosaur exhibit.
Ready to see the dinosaurs! Of course, each person has to have their own map.

John Owen looks like quite the informer here. I am sure he is telling his brother and sister all about this dinosaur.:)

They got excited when they saw this dinosaur!

Watch out! This guy spits. He almost got me and they thought that was funny.

A dinosaur puzzle!

Mary Claire didn't want to take her eyes off the dinosaurs behind her.
Even Jan got in on the search for fossils.

Carousel Ride

A fun day at the zoo!
Spring Break is so COOL
To be continued...(Just one more post, I promise.hehe)
