MONDAY- Tracy Aviary and Real Salt Lake Soccer Game
There were so many cool birds, although Tate was more impressed with the animals at the zoo. Probably because birds tend to hide in the topmost corners of their cages. But he definitely enjoyed the "no cone" (snow cone) afterwards.
Tate was watching some birds peck at the ground and he was convinced they were eating the grass, so he decided to try it out. I love his little bum in the air.
I think that is a golden eagle sitting on that stump. It looks fake, but it came swooping into the bird show right over our heads.
Although the soccer game was a little slow-paced, Tate had fun. And he came home so excited to kick every ball in the house. Basketballs, volleyballs, baseballs, footballs. It is now one of his favorite games to kick his basketball across the room and yell "Nice kick!"
TUESDAY- Swimming at Murray Pool and Salt Lake Bees Baseball Game
This pool was great because it had some really shallow areas that gradually got deeper. Tate finally got brave enough to walk slowly into the water by himself.
Of course it's much more fun to let daddy throw you up in the air.
Tate was excited to hold the baseball mitt at the Bees game. He actually got really into the game and would cheer and clap with the rest of the crowd.
Of course he was pretty happy about the nachos and drinks too.
WEDNESDAY - Do laundry, pack, and get ready for the weekend at Grandpa and Grandma's- I know all of these activities sound way fun, but unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of them :)
THURSDAY- Famous Preston Night Rodeo and Carnival
So we did venture out of Salt Lake for a few days and went up to Idaho. Grandma and Grandpa took us to the rodeo and the carnival. Tate was nervous at first, but ended up loving the carousel.I'm not so sure what he thought about this huge slide. I think we were at the bottom before he had a chance to realize what was happening.
FRIDAY & SATURDAY- Parade and Anniversary DateWe all went to the parade on Friday, and Grandpa and Grandma took Tate again on Saturday while Phil and I headed out to celebrate our anniversary. Tate was thrilled about all of the tractors in the parade.
And he squealed with delight when the candy started raining down on him. He had fun hunting it down. Gutters are great places to find candy.
Thank goodness Grandma was there to supervise and keep Tate from running under the tractors in an effort to get every last piece. Here he is proudly showing off a piece of "Canny."
We didn't have a sack to collect all of his loot, so Tate piled it in Phil's pockets. Little did he know he would never see it again. Phil and I ate it all. Well, we might have shared a piece or two with the little guy who gathered it up for us.
