The end of April...

Max has been singing this song to us all month.  It is so cute!  I just had to post it since this is the last day of April.  Where did the month go?

Little Projects

4/22/08
Todd helped Max make a Three Little Pigs house for his preschool project.  




Max chose to do a brick house, because "the wolf can't blow that one down".  












Maddie has been working on a Calico Critters contest.  Here she is with her collection.  


How could anyone resist such sweet little furry animals to play with?  And their teensy, eensy, peensy little accessories are so fun.    



I like to get Maddie the ones from England and Japan too.  They are the same toy, but under the name Sylvanian Families

Museum of Ancient Life, Thanksgiving Point Utah


On 4/19/08 Todd took us all to the Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point.  The kids call it the Dinosaur Museum.  It is a fun place.  













Here is Maddie sitting on a dinosaur toe.













Here is Max getting chased by something vicious.









Max, Todd and Madeline with their 3-D glasses on.  We saw Dinosaurs Alive! on the mammoth screen.  It was pretty interesting, and the kids enjoyed it.  





The kids always enjoy the gift shop.  They must get that from me!  We found real dinosaur egg shell pieces, amethyst crystals, and copal (semi-fossilized tree resin that is not yet Amber.) There is a little bug trapped inside the copal which Maddie thought was neat.
