A Daddy Day


My dad's pretty busy these days with work and school so Mom and I have tried our best to let him do his thing so that he can finish the term and graduate with his MPA in June. Today, however, I think Dad needed a break from work so he suggested we get out and do something outside. I have been pretty into animals lately so Mom suggested we head to Laurelhurst park so I could see the ducks. We saw lots of ducks and even a blue heron up close. It was sweet! Here are a few photos of us from our trip out.





We also went to OMSI last Sunday so we could finally see the dinosaur exhibit and found out they were having a $2 day (fyi: the first Sunday of every month from now on is going to be a $2 day). I got in for free so our total cost for the outing was only $4. Score! My favorite things to look at were, of course, the lifesize mechanical dinosaurs and the live animals they had throughout the other exhibits.

OMSI is the best. We could spend hours just letting the kids play in the giant sandbox and water area. But only four bucks?! That's a good deal!!!

Love OMSI. We have taken Kylee there a couple of times and i'd have to say its one of her favorites too! I remember when they had a dinosaur exhibit when I was a kid....too funny!
