Northwest Trek

We were terrible about taking pictures at Christmas, though we did a good job calling everyone for a video chat, so I guess that sort of counts.

Today, we went to Northwest Trek just for a quick day outing. It was a fun little zoo. They have a big open area and they drive you through on a tram to see the animals. They just have animals that are native to the region. The weather held off really well until the last 10 minutes, when we got soaked walking back to the car.






















 This bobcat had a cute story. A couple found him abandoned as a kitten and took him home, thinking he was really a kitten. Surprise! They gave him to the wildlife park when he started to grow up.

Santa Babysitting

We're either the coolest babysitters or the dumbest. We loaded up all three boys and took them to the Santa Cheer Party at the YMCA. The backseat was very crowded.
The boys got balloon animals, ate a cookie, decorated picture frames...
and even participated in a dance party.
Tommy ran around like a mad man all night...That kid is fast!

Of course, the highlight of the evening was Santa. Tommy did not want to stay on Santa's lap!



Needless to say, Mike and I were very tired by the end of the evening.
