Burrowing Owls..



Mac the Moose....

Yesterday we took another impromptu visit to Moosejaw...
We had actually been planning to go to the lake,
but the weather wasn't great...
so instead we went to the
Sask. Burrowing Owl Interpretive Center
It was fun and Jeremy enjoyed the owls,
and the snake
Gracie LOVED the horse in the field next door...
Jeremy is also probably going to be in the paper
because they were having their grand opening,
and Jeremy was cute,
so the photographer kept taking pics of him...

Our day seemed a little cursed though...
Jeremy got REALLY mad at some little boy at the Owl center
because the boy pushed him..
When I asked Jeremy about it,
he got all red in the face (Just like daddy and grandpa..)
and spouted off more sentences at once then I have ever heard him use,
and finished it with "I don't want to talk about it..."
Then we realized we had forgotten Gracie's soother,
so we had to go buy another one...
Then it poured rain...
Oh...
and at Cresent park..
My husband threw some teens bike because the kids was riding it through
the wading pool around babies,
and had been asked to stop several times,
and got lippy...
(Honestly, it really wasn't as bad as it sounds...)

ok..well maybe it was...
Kendal seemed to enjoy it way too much....




At Cresent Park


uh...I think Jeremy enjoyed his ice cream.....

and then we went to the Chocolate Moose for ice cream...
and they only have a couple of tables..
so picture this.
I had a white shirt on.
There was a table full of people who you think would have been polite enough to move,
since they weren't eating...
instead of gawking at us
Kendal holding Gracie...
and me trying to look after Jeremy,
and the chocolate ice cream
I was BRILLIANT enough to get him...
(What was I thinking...)
so we had to try and feed Jeremy his ice cream
sitting on a bench..
by the end, Kendal was covered with chocolate ice cream...
and my white shirt wasn't white anymore...

Well...I guess every trip can't be perfect...
can it Mark??


We had fun anyways...coulda been worse...

Sounds like a great day with some awful bits mixed in! The pictures are great, love the chocolate face one, a little disappointing not to see your white shirt though!:)

Low blow about the car, Robyn! Besides, the title said this post was about owls, then it showed a moose. I thought, 'Robyn's confused again.'
