Thursday we went to the Stamford Nature Center to check out the farm and the playground. The boys' friend came with us, so I had three boys ages 3, 4 and 5. It was fun and they really kept each other company the whole time. We saw goats, sheep, chickens, pigs and piglets, cows, llamas, and rabbits. We had a little picnic for snack and then back to the playground. Afterwards, we joined up with my friend (mom of the boys' friend) and headed to Five Guys for some burgers and fries. Then off to another friend's pool for swimming with even more friends and kids. The boys were WIPED out and slept all the way home and then went straight to bed at 7:45.

Friday morning we hung out at the house and then Meggie came over to come to The Bronx Zoo with us! It was a great time. We met up with my friend and her two boys, and then later my cousin, Drew, met us there too. We saw a ton of animals including birds, monkeys, giraffes, goats, bears, sheep, snakes, turtles, fish, and our favorite - the gorillas! We walked a lot and saw a lot. After we got tired, we sat down for lunch and then walked back to the car to head home. Both of the boys napped in the car. Score!
Monday Tommy started at his new pre-school and Ben and I got one last hurrah in before school starts tomorrow. We went to Lego Land and had a blast. We made Lego cars to race, built in the Lego city, played in the indoor play area, went on a ride and even saw a 3-D movie! We topped it off with some new sneakers for school. A good day out!
