Our family has had a lot of fun these last few days!
Friday- Bear World! We are lucky to live about 30 minutes from bear world! Brett and I went about 2 years ago, but it was a lot more fun with John! John has always loved animals. He sat in my lap as we drove around looking at all the animals! He growled at all the bears and moo'd at the buffalos :) At the end of the bear "tour" (you drive around yourselves) they have a petting zoo with the friendliest animals I have ever met! There were deer, goats, ducks, geese, chickens, and peacocks. John got a lot of attention from a deer that came right up and licked him all over! He laughed and laughed, he didn't even mind when it started nibbling on his clothes! He also walked right up to a goat and started poking it, don't worry he was closely supervised, and the goat just looked at him and then ignored him. We will definitely be going there again! And to think I have still not taken him to the zoo…
That evening we were invited to dinner by one of Brett's friends from high school, now we are all friends. And her husbands name is doug-- the only doug I have met other than my little brother (just a random fact-mostly throwing that in for my mom). They introduced us to malaleuca. We are trying to a lot of their products and so far have liked them!
Saturday I ran my first 5k! And it will certainly not be my last! I really enjoy it. It was one of those races where they throw color on you as you run-- don't think I will do that kind again, but it was nice for the experience, especially since I used to work for a company that organized those kinds of 5ks. Brett and John came to cheer me on- I love those two!
On sunday we were Reunited with our sunbeam class- it was stake conference last week. We also got to experience 3 hours of church with a walking baby for the first time- what a game changer!
We celebrated memorial day with my little brother that attends BYUI. He came down for hamburgers and a great game of monopoly. Which I would just like to say I won. My winning ratio in monopoly is about 12 loses to every win- no joke. Not because I am bad with money- just because I go to jail a lot, and always land on the really expensive properties, and get bad chance cards.
