a bbq and a bunch of animals

We had such an awesome weekend. We just had so much fun that I am so exhausted right now! I should go to bed but I want to post before I let another 5 weeks slip by....
Also Lorin volunteered to go get some groceries....he's called three times in 20 minutes. Ha.

Thursday, Carrie, Eric, Janelle, Ashton and I went swimming. It was so relaxing. Unfortunately, Ashton was a little afraid of being dunked in the water or even being put on his back. He used to love it but I haven't taken him swimming for a couple of months! I ruined him! Ok, well, I think I can get him to like it again.....He would just hold on to whoever was holding him so tight so they wouldn't let him go! How sad.

So on Friday we went to Mike and Karen's home in Bountiful. We had a nice BBQ and stayed up late to play Catchphrase. 5 adults....random words.....way past bedtime....equals hysterical laughter and pure insanity. Two words guys: No problem! I am so sad I didn't get any pictures- what was I thinking? Ashton loved playing with Brooke's toys...and Brooke, too :) Thanks for having us over guys.

Saturday we went to a few yardsales (my idea- if we can go to a yardsale then Lorin can take us on a "short" drive). We found some sweeeet deals and were tempted by some offers but we really don't need more junk! Theeeeen, we went to the ZOO! I think we were more excited to see it than Ashton. He loved the Aquarium in Sandy so we just figured he'd like these live animals. Noo. He was more interested in licking the wood and Lorin's hand. We walked around, saw some cool animals and had some awesome kettle corn. Hmmm. I am not making that sound like an awesome time. We just enjoyed each others' company and enjoyed telling an 8 month old about these animals he couldn't care less about! Well, at least the adults had a blast! We came home, Lorin offered to take me to a nice restaurant to celebrate Mother's Day but I was so tired. We had a nice relaxing evening at home, made dinner and watched Dark Knight for the 80th time....Yeah, that wasn't so relaxing but whatever. You know, Janelle made a good point. Who actually reads what we post on the blog? People just want pictures. Well here you go:
oh, yes....the wood...yum
