Our Weekend

Fun weekend!  Friday night we went and tried a new sushi place.  It was okay.  Not the best we've tried here.  It was pricey too for the quality.  But it was my Mother's Day dinner out, and I'm worth splurging on.  :)

On Saturday we went and visited the Museum of Osteology, or in other words, a bone museum.  It was pretty cool.

There were skeletons of all shapes and sizes.

The biggest was a whale.

There were rhinos and hippos and even human ones!

There was also a scavenger hunt for both the kids and the adults.  I learned all sorts of things.  Did you know the myth of the cyclops originated from the unique shape of elephant skulls?

Look at its one eye!

The kids loved it there, and it was just big enough/small enough to keep their interest.  You could even pick up your own bones in the gift shop.  Want a human skull?  It'll only set you back $1650.  Maybe I'll donate my body for display.

We went to a BBQ that night with the guys from Anton's class.  It's weird to hang out with a bunch of young single guys.  I don't have much to say to them about anything.  Oh well, it was still nice to be out with adults.

This morning for Mother's Day Anton made me Creme Brulee French Toast for breakfast.  It. was. so. good.  Make it.  You can even sub out the whipping cream for fat free half and half and it'll even be almost good for you.  Anton topped it with fresh strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.  You won't need syrup for this.  It's good all on its own.

Then in a mad rush as we were running out the door for church the kids gave me all their cute homemade gifts and flowers from Anton.

Alex even still has breakfast in his mouth, that's how rushed we were.

Then after church I spent the rest of the day doing whatever I pleased, from reading to playing on the computer.  I wish it could be Mother's Day every day!

After almost a year of "practice," Alex finally rode his bike alone for the first time today!  Thanks Grandpa for the training wheel and pedal removal that made this so much easier!

He's such a big boy now!
