We decided to take a trip to the zoo last week before it got too late in the season for us. When I asked the Boss what he thought he would see at the zoo, his reply was "elephants" and "meerkats." Meerkats? Where does that come from. Anyway, it was a cool day, the animals were all very cooperative - pacing around in their domiciles instead of laying around and hiding. The penguins were being fed and swimming. It was all great fun. And we saw meerkats! And the Boss - not so impressed. Of course, they are right next to the HUGE snakes and the porcupines, so I guess it's hard for a two-year-old to focus. The highlight of the zoo? The big round wet globe fountain. Of course. Are we supposed to go to the zoo for the animals? Then they shouldn't put that fabulous globe thing right front and center - it's obviously the focal point and the whole reason we go to the zoo.

Anyway, my sister was here this past weekend. She has been pestering me for some time to start one of these blog thingies. We went to the Discovery Gateway in SLC for the children, although a fun time was had by all. One of the greatest things were these two books I bought for myself - they are the greatest. If you need any Christmas gift ideas for older kids (I'd say 9-10 for the two I got at least) then consider these.
They have some two-page dot-to-dots that actually go up to 1400 ish, plus he has you do them in all these creative ways. Way fun. The books were $7.95 each. Books 1 through 4 are not super challenges and I don't know if they are quite as hard, but they are probably worth getting too. I don't know if I should be embarassed to admit that I like to do these "kid" puzzles, but it's my blog and like the title says, I'm crazy. Pick these books up, they'll be hard to put down. Here's a picture of the boss doing his best dance move, just a little something to make you smile.
And thus ends my first post.
