This week was filled with beautiful weather! We visited Oak Grove Park in Centerville to see the ducks, play at the playground and work out on the fitness equipment. Owen has been into getting bigger muscles lately- always flexing and having us feel his arms!
Owen has been wanting a hamster lately, but we thought it might be hard with Ian being so curious. So we decided on fish. I thought we should buy 3 since they were only 28 cents each! We named them Monster Truck, Eva and Ranger. I'm a fish newbie and thought the fish would do okay in a fish bowl... but by day three they were coming up to the surface gasping for air. We ended up doing a lot of research on goldfish habitats and needs. We decided to buy a 10 gallon tank (they probably need bigger, but we just thought the others were too big for our house!), filter, pump, decor, water test kit and water conditioner on Amazon and at the local pet store. This turned into quite an expensive endeavor, but we have learned a lot so far! The fish seem much happier now :)
We took the kids kayaking this weekend at Caesar's Creek, but they seemed to enjoy playing on the beach more than the kayaks this time. We also went Cosmic Bowling at Capri Lanes and the kids had a ton of fun! The lights and music were so fun!
The kids (Owen and Eva) worked on another train city, but used the Magnatiles this time and balanced buildings on top of their bridge. Ian was mostly focused on knocking it down! We also played Play-Doh, investigated toads and butterflies, did sensory play with water beads, and built several vehicles with Legos (he is showing off his ice cream truck in the photo below).
