Who's Excited for Spring!?

I am! I think Spring is my favorite season. I was born in the spring, so obviously it's the best season, but I admit I may be biased.

First: Our announcement of a new raffle!! Purchase by April 15!!!

WE have a $50 gift card to the Lifetime Store! Buy your raffle ticket for $20 here.  You will be entered to win this gift card! The best part of this gift card is that we can help you use it on any item of choice wit a small discount on top of that!!

With all this warm weather, think of the many ways you could use it!

We have been eating up the warmth with trips to the zoo and other adventures. So much fun! I am so happy for the warmth!

 Free train day with our bestie!

 Riding the Panda on the Zoo Carousel
After 3 years we finally rode the panda. But apparently never again. 
He rode the on the bench today!

 Watching the red pandas with our best friends today. 

 For four children who have very different personalities the fact that we got all 4 to smile at the same time was amazing!

We love our besties! They are the best!

We are foodies. Over the last couple days I have posted a couple questions on Instagram about food preferences. Salads and Buttercream.

I love a good salad full of all kinds of stuff. This salad had ham, mushrooms, and beets, among other things. Do you like beets? I do!

For Panda's birthday we got one of those cupcakes turned cake things. There is a small mountain of buttercream between each cupcake. Oh my gosh. I do like a good bit of buttercream, but this was sooo much. What is your favorite kind of frosting?

The Aquarium

We have an awesome aquarium just 5 minutes from our house and last fall we got a membership, for the second year. Panda loves to feed the Manta Rays and Sting Rays and the sharks. I love to feed the birds. Last week my brother-in-law had a day off so Panda and I went with my sister, her son, and her husband. We had a great time. I love that we have a membership so we never feel the need to stay long. We can always come back.

 Feeding the parakeets. He is getting much braver and really enjoys holding the food by himself.
Cute little things!

Regular like days

I have to admit, this trying to share our lives with you is not easy for me. That is for a couple of reasons. I have to remember what we did/are doing. So much of it is just the daily little things which are hard because I'm not sure if they are interesting or not. And there are times that I feel that it is more important to be doing what I am doing, rather than documenting it for sharing.

Our holidays were good. We kept them low key and enjoyed much time with family. Things are back to our normal routine. Panda has pre-school on Tuesday and Thursdays and he is loving it.

This last Saturday we decided to have a family day out. We had a ramen lunch, which is fun when we do it at home because we each like different flavors.

Then we went to see Mary Poppins returns. It was so cute. I loved it. Panda struggled a little to stay still, and had to go to the bathroom 3 times, but he sure danced along with all the numbers. He has always loved music and movement.

We felt it stayed true to the spirit of the original and I can't wait to add it to my library of DVDs.

What do you like to do on Saturdays?
