Spring Carnival and the Zoo Mobile

This weekend we enjoyed Maeve's Spring Carnival with school. They had big kid rides, games, food, and pony rides. Maeve was too small to go on the big slide, and she wasn't interested in getting very close to the ponies so we colored a beach ball and played on the playground  with her friends Grace and Chloe. She loved trying to play the game of tossing the rings. She won bubbles and was very excited about that. Aunt Laura joined us and even ran into one of her Kindergartner's there. The weather held off but you can see in the pictures that there were dark clouds looming behind.

Later that night Grandma Jan watched Maeve so we could go to an event for Young Professionals to benefit the Minnesota Zoo. They had their Zoo Mobile there (aka traveling animals) and we got up close and personal with a hawk and a snake. We also won some live auction items - a rocking dog for Maeve and a tour for 8 people at a Vodka distillery in Wisconsin. Eric will have to plan a boys trip there sometime this summer.

It was a fun weekend. Now we just need to make it through one more week of work before we head to Hilton Head Island, SC. We are looking forward to fun in the sun.


  1. What a fun day! Great pictures.
