Adventures at the St. Louis Zoo!!

What I’m really thinking! “Oh, how I long for the good ole days! When I used to run wild and didn’t have a care in the world.” The St. Louis Zoo is a wonderful place to visit, and it’s free! I think my kids really feel a connection to the zoo, and I did notice some similarities between the wranglers and the…

Surviving Spring Break!!!

Well here we are on Day Five, count ’em 5 days into Spring Break 2011 and  the wranglers are complaining of sheer boredom. Oh my! What should we do about it? We’ve had gorgeous weather, but that’s about to take a nose dive, back into the 40’s for highs.  We’ve done the road trip to Elephant Rocks State Park…

Elephant Rocks State Park!

If you ever get a chance to visit Missouri, try to make a stop at Elephant Rocks State Park, this place is amazing! We took a road trip with the little wranglers in the big minivan.

I guess you can tell my mental state is going downhill…

Rocket Boy has a computer set-up that most kids would love to have. He has a laptop, and a separate keyboard and large monitor, so he can work on his animation projects, and what do I hear?  “Mom, this game…

Take A Hike, Winter!

This snow really sucks! Mr. Frog says, “I’m not happy about this weather!”  Here in the Midwest we received whiskey barrels of rain, and a surprise snowstorm yesterday.  Was I really at the garden center buying spring flowers over the weekend? Are all the flower beds raked and tidy ready for planting? Am I about to lose my freaking mind? You betcha! I realize…
