Marathon Weekend

I don't know if it's that we know Oliver is on to the fact that his life is about to change drastically or that we are just wanting to soak up every minute we have left with just the three of us (My OB scheduled my c-section for March 17th- a St. Patty's baby!), but we did some serious recreating this weekend. Starting Friday with raking leaves in the yard (after about a 3-month delay), a mall outing which Oliver loves for all the hot air balloons displayed there, and then going glow bowling on Saturday, and finally on Monday to Albuquerque's amazing kids' science museum. Needless to say, we were all a little tired come Monday and Oliver showed us by throwing a fit at our last stop at the museum- the bubble tank that he wanted so desperately to submerge Chick Hicks (from Cars) in.

Oliver gave these a thorough run-through before we scooped them up.

Christian sat and made these for Oliver one night. Can you guess "who" the blue car is?

Look who's a dipper, just like his Daddy! Oliver downed almost the entire basket of bowling alley french fries and he really couldn't get enough sauce.

I just wanted everyone to see Christian's incredible form. He won the first game, I won the second. He had some amazing strikes that night.

Oliver was also quite the bowler and would literally leap and shout for joy every time he sent the ball down the lane. I haven't seen him that excited in months.

They had this exhibit where you ride this bike out on a high wire. The worker tried to convince me to try it, but my fear of heights is just greater than the thrill this ride might have provided.

Wow, sounds like a very full but very fun weekend! I've heard great things about the science museum and have been desperate to go, but, of course, still haven't! I'll have to make it a point to go next time we are there.

How cool! That exhibit rocks! I can't believe they just let anyone do it. It looks so dangerous! Christian DOES have good form!

Fun weekend! That is a cool exhibit. ALB sounds like there are lots of cool things to do. The only thing missing is pictures of you and your cute belly.
That is exciting that you have a due date! I know you had a csection with Oliver - would your doc to a VBAC?

I love that you still wear your reunion shirt...I think I have a growing (and dusty) pile of those in my closet somewhere. Sounds like a fun weekend...good for you for trying the bike on a high wire thing...looks like fun!

I loved the little Oliver moments. Sometimes it seems so weird that we're old enough to have kids.

So cute. Love these pics. And Christian's form is impressive! I can't believe you didn't want to get on a high wire with your pregnant belly! I can't wait to see that baby!!!!!
