Weekend recap

Our weekend was busy and full of fun. On Friday night we decided to take our first family hike of the year. We headed down to a local arboretum with our sneakers on and a picnic packed. The weather didn't look like it was going to cooperate but it held out and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The picnic was a bit chilly and breezy because the sun was nowhere to be found, but we managed. (Although we may or may not have been telling Haven to hurry up and eat every 2 seconds because we were freezing!)

Saturday morning Cale and Haven headed to the pool for Haven's second swimming lesson. She loves it! I get an in depth review of the class from her each week and her swimming buddy (AKA Cale) reports that she's doing great. Her favorite part- the slide!

At the museum with the T-Rex

We are having some work done at our house so we needed to leave on Saturday so we weren't in the way. Since it's opening last year, we have wanted to visit The Creation Museum. We finally made it there on Saturday afternoon. It's kinda pricey, but totally worth it! We all enjoyed the incredible murals, the movies, and the life like displays. We also learned a lot and were just reminded how amazing this earth and its Creator are! The have beautiful grounds and a little petting zoo which was a big hit with our crowd.

This picture would be perfect if Cale had his eyes open!

We rounded out our day with dinner at a Thai restaurant in Cincinnati called Lemon Grass. That is also the name of our favorite Thai place in Cleveland so we figured it had to be good. Plus, Amber and Phil had recently been here and have yet to stop talking about how good the spring rolls were. They weren't lying! Everything was delicious and it was just a nice ending to a fun day.

Sunday was a big day as we celebrated the end of Haven's first year of Tuesday School. She had her "graduation" program last night and it was great. Each of the five classes sang two songs and Haven was enthusiastic in her motions to "Praise Ye The Lord." It was a fun night and we are sad to see Tuesday School end for the year. Haven loved going every week and we hope to have her return in the fall.

Too bad she is so shy! The girl was posing for every single picture!

A fun weekend, but now it's back to reality. Happy Monday!
