TRADITION!!! All 3 of my children love... Blue's Clues. Lauren loved "buppy" (a combinations of blue and puppy). Jack loved "bow bow" (the sound she makes when she 'talks') and now Kate waves and dances when the show starts and says, "bow? bow?". It makes John and me smile to see a third child love this show. The sad news is, it hasn't been new since August 2006. But now, we watch with her and sing the songs and know what is coming up next and realize Blue Puppy is back in our lives and that's a good thing.

Today was one of those days.... Everything worked just how you would hope. We got up on time, and Jack LOVED the Tiny Tike Triathlon and rode and ran his heart out. At the end, he got his medal and while holding it, said, "This is such an honor." He makes me smile. After the triathlon, we came home and got ready to go to the zoo. It was the biggest crowd I have ever seen at the zoo with normal visitors plus 3 corporate events going on. We take a picnic and were able to sit under the enormous shade tree and enjoy the amazing weather. We saw the new giraffe exhibit and went through the dinosaur exhibit twice!! Jack and Lauren loved it and Kate waved and smiled at all of the dinos! I lo
ve having a membership! After we left the zoo, we drove around for a little bit so Kate could nap and once she woke up, we stopped at Sonic for ice cream. With this awesome weather, we went to the park so the kids could run some more. Jack is trying to learn to swing on his own, which frustrates him a lot!! Lauren loved monkey bars and can skip the ones that hang from a chain. Kate really enjoys the slide that is just her size, or likes to climb on anything... Since it was so nice, we opted for dinner where we could sit outside and eat. Lauren DID NOT enjoy to smokers!! DID! NOT! and listed all of the problems that smoking causes and declared if it were up to her, she'd outlaw cigarettes and drugs. Except for the good drugs....and then asked John why he was drinking beer (of all things!), and totally judged him, too! After coming home and taking baths, today was determined to be a rousing success!!! Dare I say, perfect!
