I've noticed a lot of people have special days of the week for their blogs so I decided to start Super Saturdays. Every Saturday, I'll let you know the crazy adventures we had that day/week/whatever.
Today we went to White Rock Lake's Family Fun Weekend.
Let me tell you...this was not nearly as popular as you would have thought. I'm sure the coordinators were frustrated by the fact that they brought 3 full sheet cakes and there weren't even enough people to finish one!
Regardless, we had a wonderful time. Jacob made some birthday cards for the lake:
Then one of the volunteers helped him make some seed balls. It's compost and clay mixed together, then you roll it in a ball and push your thumb in the middle to make a little bowl. You put some seeds inside and then pinch the sides closed so it's a ball again. She said you just throw them on the ground and the rain will take care of the rest.
Then we headed over to the Bath House and they had some tadpoles and a bull frog on display. That bull frog did NOT want to be in the little aquarium.
Then we went on a little nature walk and learned about some of the birds.
Jacob was more interested in the giant pile of leaves, though.
He got to check out the bird through the binoculars, which was pretty cool.
The City of Dallas proclaimed today to be Arbor Day 2011.
Afterwards, we found a see-saw/teeter-totter/whatever you call it. Jacob and his brother from another mother (and father), Joey, had to try it out.
Afterwards, we hit up the Dallas Kids Expo. I was unimpressed seeing as it was about half the size of the DFW Family Expo. However, Jacob had an absolute blast, so that made it worth it. I found out about some great new water parks in the area that I think we'll check out this summer.
And for those of you not in DFW...the high today was 85 degrees.
