I'm not sure if I am in Minnesota or Colorado...the past few weeks of weather sure have been confusing but so appreciated! To my MN Friends, this is what Colorado winters are like-snow, but warm days and a beautiful sunshine!
This weekend we took advantage of the weather and spent most of our days outside. I took Friday off of work (I really needed it) and went to the MN Zoo. We are now zoo members (Thank you Mom!) so we will be spending a lot of time this summer there! Zane loved the dolphin show, the leopard (who was pacing-Zane said he wanted his mommy) and the camels. He really wanted to see the eagle but he was moved because they are making a new exhibit for the bears so maybe next time and he enjoyed the owl. Right as we were leaving a man was holding a beau constrictor, which Zane wanted to see, but didn't want to get too close and as soon as we walked away we had to return for a second look. Silly boy!
On Saturday we had a Zane and Mom day. Brian had a boys day and enjoyed shooting clay pigeons, golfing and catching up with some friends. Zane and I went and did a little shopping for summer clothes, yes, in March since he's grown out of most of his t-shirts and needed shorts, and then we went and played 'baseball'. We ran the bases (he made me run them-7 months pregnant, I'm sure that was a pretty sight), played in the dirt and and the umpire (Zane) kept calling everything a strike; even when I'd hit it. Zane was also 'Joe Mauer' as he calls himself. Needless to saw we had a great day. We also colored a leprechaun, made muffin paper flowers and snuggled. He's such an fun boy and getting so big!!
Sunday was also very eventful (we had to enjoy this beautiful weather). We went out and played baseball, soccer and golf all on the baseball diamond. We also flew our kite and checked out a new park. We have so many plans for the summer, I can't wait! We also found a great authentic Mexican restaurant in Chanhassen that we never knew was right down the road from us. We went there for some dinner and on Sunday nights they have Mariachi singers. Zane was in heaven. He watched the men play their guitars and violin as well as sing, and then it was his turn. The came over and sang several songs for Zane. This was the best "eating out" experience we've had in a long time. We have never been regulars anywhere and don't have many regular things we do, but Sunday nights we will be visiting this restaurant often. Before we were even home Zane asked when we can go back. He even ate most of his meal (which is unusual too!). Lots of fun! Now back to the grind at work.
I'm very anxious as we have a big event on Wednesday and Thursday I'm hosting a lunch and meeting for about 35 people and then off for an ultrasound, glucose test and doctor appointment. I'm 28 weeks this week and feeling every bit pregnant! Zane was very honest and told me my tummy is big.
