Wonderful W

Wow, where was my camera all week? Lame sorry! We actually did do a fair amount for W but I didn't bring the camera along. Monday we went to the Wood Park in Pleasant Grove (also known as Discovery Park). It was still lightly snowing but dry enough so we had fun getting out and especially enjoyed having Daddy home that morning.
Carter spinning

Davis as the "King" Bee. He came up with that himself.
We then drove up the canyon to see a Waterfall (Bridal Veil) since we can't hike there currently. It didn't end up being the best plan as we got stuck in a traffic jam from a rollover accident. We did, however, get plenty of time to look at the falls. Oh we also ate at Wienerschnitzel.
Wednesday we met up with our favorite Weber student at the Discovery Gateway where we played with the Water table and the Wind tunnel. Mostly my pass is about to expire and I don't plan on renewing it so I wanted to get one more visit in. Really the kids do enjoy it there but it is always TOO busy for me and I hate fighting with the over-bearing moms there. And I hate fighting with the kids who no one is attending to either. Maybe I'm odd but in a busy place that size I am right on my kid's heels the whole time. It's fun for them too as Davis had me "order" from the little deli and then he weighed the food and we checked out, etc. He had a play mate while Carter was busy with Hillary. But I was the Only parent in the little grocery store and there were 10 or so kids in there. Sorry for the soap box. Plus it is in Salt Lake and somehow always seems too far away to visit as often, even though the zoo is farther and we go there more often. I dunno, just one membership I feel okay in dropping. We'll still go to the Gateway in the summer and play in the fountains, we'll just go see a show at the Planetarium while we're up there instead.
Friday we had a few plans that kept falling through, something about a napping mama that slept too long to get to do what we wanted to . . .but that we did do Monday so it's okay. But we did go have some fun at the aquarium and were glad that Cyndel could join us. Somehow we always end up there 30 minutes before they close and the entrance gal gives us a dirty look but then we leave with about 5 minutes to spare with the kids having done everything they wanted to. I guess that says the aquarium is not especially large (sure wish we lived closer to the Monterey Bay Aquarium! No way you could do that in a half hour) but we do enjoy it for what it is. Oooh and next month they are adding penguins which Davis has informed me is now his favorite animals.
Stay tuned for next week (this week) when we went to the Farm, and will be going to the zoo to find Pirate Treasure, hooray!
Oh and I do have one more picture to share, though I didn't take this one myself, enjoy!
