Where's Teacher?

This was the biggest bullfrog I'd ever seen!
Except for this one of course!

Wilson and MacKenzie
Wilson, Tyler (how tall is that kid), MacKenzie, Bennett and a guest of the teachers

Wilson's preschool does these cool little field trips once a month where you try to figure out where the teacher is going based on what they are learning about. They learned about sea creatures a few weeks ago, so of course we went to the aquarium! It was actually really fun because we haven't been there for over a year. I don't think Bennett remembered his last aquarium trip and Wilson was actually excited to see the sharks, penguins, the new turtle (at least she's new to us) and he even touched a stingray for the first time! I love Wil's teachers. They are so fun and you can tell they love what they do. I am so glad we put him in preschool. I also can't believe that Wil is starting kindergarten in the fall! Wow, what a big boy!

Happy V-day!

In one game, you had to bounce a ping pong ball onto a piece of bread with peanut butter on it. Doesn't the heart shaped bread make you sick?
Ever tried to stack 3 golf balls? Not easy.
The Hansens went head to head in the Oreo challenge. In the end, Elena was victorious!
Jorga won the petroleum jelly and cotton ball game. LOL fun!
Julio tried his hardest and we laughed the hardest at his attempt!
Lisa was masterful at blowing up her balloon and knocking down cups but........
Once again, Preston showed us how full of hot air he really is!
The Walker's pulled out tissues from the box with one hand. Jessica beat out!
In the end there was a tie and we did card castles to see who won. Preston couldn't handle it on the table so he moved to the floor. He was not very successful.
This was all Lisa had to do to put it away for the girls!
Here are the winners of the first annual Minute to Win it Boys Vs. Girls Challenge!

Ben and I both really don't like Valentine's Day. Ben is one of those guys who doesn't want to be told what to do and I hate all the crowds and commercialism surrounding it. A few years ago we decided to start having a Valentine's Party at our house with friends. Since then I actually look forward to the holiday again! Our tradition has been to play Battle of the Sexes, but the women lost every year so I decided to try something new. We played Minute to Win it Games that require no skill whatsoever to level the playing field. It was hilarious and I am proud to say the women won! Yeah! The Sudweeks won back their title in the Newlywed game and it was a great time had by all (I hope). I am grateful for good friends that can make even the worst holidays better!
