Animals!

It's snowing today (yeah, not just raining--snowing), so we needed to get out of the house to do something fun. I called Emmy's friend Seth and my friend Ashley and we went to the Bean Life Science Museum at BYU.
Little did I know our kiddos would be AMAZED at the animals. Instantly upon entering the building and seeing the animals, they said, "Whoa!" and "Duck!" and "Grr!" and "Lion!" and all sorts of animal sounds and names. Absolutely adorable! I took a bunch of video of both of them while we were there, but I'm too tired to upload it. Perhaps another day. These few picture will have to do. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of Seth. He was being so adorable too! Both of them were so excited!
They ran around for a whole hour, completely loving every minute. We will definitely be doing this again.
As proof that Emmy had an awesome time, after we got home, she fell asleep in her high chair after eating half her lunch (I was getting her the rest and came back to this!). That's the first time that has happened.

So cute! I wish I could have been there! If we ever get to warm weather, we ought to do the Thanksgiving point barn or zoo together.
Did you leave her in her chair or put her to bed...did she stay asleep?

Cute! Wow Erica, you have been quite the blogger lately! I just read your last 3.

I'm glad Emmy liked the museum. My girls don't enjoy them for some reason.
we've never tried Mini golf with them, but it is a great idea!

Thanks for the fun posts

I put her to bed, and she slept for 2 1/2 hours.

I'm all for bringing her to Thanksgiving Point with you guys--if it will ever warm up around this place. :) She's really into animals right now.
