In the pictures you can also find the kids interpretation of the state with their coloring maps (hmmm, guesses?). As usual, I'm always a tad surprised by what they come up with :) The boys were headed off to a Cub Scout event tonight but I did manage to make Red Flannel Hash for dinner tonight. It was a good way to use up the leftover corned beef from the other night and the kiddos got to try beets for the first time. (Dad, I'm really sorry if you're reading this...)
Catching up with some friends tomorrow and a really fun breakfast for dinner! So until then...
New Hampshire Fun Fact of the Day: Wallace D. Lovell built the Hampton River Bridge in 1900 called the "mile-long bridge". It was reputed to be the longest wooden bridge in the world.
I surprised them this morning and didn't tell them where we were off to :) We pulled in and the first words out of their mouths were "Are Grandma and Papa here?"
Noah the Polar Bear
Bean the Polar Bear
Coins in the fountain
Checking out the seals
And the playing polar bears
Noah liked the arctic wolf
My favorite - the giraffes!
Riding the lion
The new flamingo exhibit
One really really really big alligator
The elephants were out
Speaking of elephants...
The new penguin exhibit
Seriously, we were really this close. There is no zoom on this picture
Look at these two cuties!
I think I would have liked to just chill with the orangutan for most of the day
This one's for you, Grandma
We made her a butterfly
And Noah drew his own snake
And then I did one for him
Good behavior earned a slurpee on the way home (Am I cool mom or what??)
Checking out the wall to decide what they want to draw
Noah's New Hampshire - complete with Mary's lamb and a jack o'lantern
(He wanted to make sure Cutey got in the picture)
Mikayla's New Hampshire (the three round things at the bottom are potatoes, the figure on the left is Mary and the top right is the lamb)
Red Flannel Hash - my kids LOVED this (and no, I'm not just saying that) In fact Noah says that is might be 'birthday dinner' worthy. You could have knocked me over with a feather.
