My mom came up to spend most of the week with us and take us on some field trips.
Tuesday we went to Marbles Kids Museum, where the kids all had a blast. We had not been all winter because of one thing or another.

Wednesday was the trip to the NC Zoo. The weather was perfect for this trip - low 70's and low humidity. We almost had the zoo to ourselves for the day.
At home this week we've been brushing up on our bird identification skills, listening to recordings of bird calls and trying to identify the birds in our backyard. Lots of time spent on the deck, having dinner, putting together puzzles, reading and painting.
The big girls have been working with their friend in the afternoon to create a book series featuring our cats...
We are finishing off the week with lots of reading. Before she left, my mom took us all the the book store and stocked us up on new reading material. Mary 'found' "The 39 Clues" series and is excited to try out all the clue tracking.
It has been a busy, but fun Spring Break. Next week - cleaning!
