Spring Break '09

We have had a GREAT spring break even though the weather hasn't felt like spring (with the exception of last weekend). On Tuesday Lorelei got to play with a favorite friend Elin Youngquist. They have been anxiously waiting for Lorelei to recover from surgery and for schedules to meet up. Needless to say, it was a joyous reunion. They always have fun. I didn't take any photos, but when Courtney puts a couple on her blog I'll steal them. We have been playing outside even though it's still chilly. We even got the bubbles out.

On Wed we went to the Library to look and get some museum adventure passes. We had also planned on Gym day at the church, but was unaware of Zone conference the same day. So we invited Alaynna and Drew (and their Mom) to come over and play. They had never been over, so it was especially fun. We also had our first official Barnhart Movie Night. We got in our jammies and piled the floor with pillows and blankets. e popped corn and had fudge bars. We watched BOLT and laughed our heads off. Braden says he wants to have a pet hamster now.
We puts the youngsters to bed and then made it a double feature. We watched the new 007 film.

On Thursday we headed for the Minnesota Zoo. It's a Barnhart family favorite! We started in the Discovery bay. It was cooler that day as well (35 degrees), but I think we all enjoyed our time outside best of all. We love the Russian Grizzly Coast exhibits. And then we walked the northern trail. There was no crabbiness until we warmed up and some had differing ideas on how things should go and when they should happen. We made it through the tropics trail and then in was indeed time to head home.

Joseph had his friend Benjamin over to play today. They have become quite good friends!
Sat Braden & I have a class to go to all day, so they kids will have yet another play day. This time with both sets of grandparents. It's really been fun family time this week with lots of fun visitors and places to go.

We rented the same movies last night! How funny.
Benjamin LOVED his play date with Joseph. Christopher felt a little left out though. The other day, he kept asking if HE could play with "Jofeph" too. =) We'll have to get them all together more over the Summer.
