Wormy worms........Now thats my kind of pet!

A few weeks ago we had a really bad rainstorm that dropped a total of about 6 inches and 4 of those in less than an hour. Some of our window wells were completely full of water. After watching it poor rain for a while once it let up I decided to take the girls out to jump in some "puddles". When we got out there what did we find.....Oh yes it was like like Christmas! There were hundreds of worms floating down the street in the rivers so I got the girls each a bucket and told them if they caught a bunch we would make worm houses and they could keep them as pets. Yes i know disgusting but very entertaining. Needless to say Zoe jumped at the thought. Isa thought it sounded fun but was not about to touch a single worm herself so instead Zoe, being the awesome sister that she is, put every other worm in Isa's bucket. By the end we had probably a couple hundred worms. Along the way this is what Zoe said, "Oh mom arent they just sooo cute, don't you just think they are cute?" or "Mom don't you just love worms" and "Mom look I caught a big daddy worm!". This little girl is going to make some man very happy one day with her willingness do do anything dirty and disgusting. We got home got out some big glass vases labled one Isa one Zoe dumped some mud in and then dumped our worms. We covered them with wax paper and a hair-tie, those suckers can climb! We had those babies living on our kitchen counter for about 2-3 weeks. Yesterday I finally decided we needed to get rid of them so we dumped them into the garden to fertilize it, I did not expect them to be alive still. Well, I was wrong. I have never seen bigger earth worms in all my life....disgusting! I nominate myself mom of the year for this little adventure!

V-I-S-I-T-O-R-S and Ballet!

Yes its true wait for it wait for it..........Someone other than my mom and Allee in my familia graced us with their presence and decided to brave the untameable weather of North Dakota. Cassie and Scott we would like to declare this moment to be your moment! All joking aside we had a blast they cam for four days and we accomplished a lot in those four days in fact we did so much that I only have one picture to show for it (oops!). We went to the zoo, splash down, darby land and yes oh yes we played us some guitar hero (Scott rocked it so until next time my man you are the champion). Apparently according to my faithful sister, splashdown is better than seven peaks so there all you non visiting Utahans! We had so much fun we didn't want them to leave especially since the girls played more hide and seek than ever. There was also an awesome dishes fairy that was here for that same time ........ hmmm (Cassie) and an entertain my kids fairy ........ hmmmm (Scott). Thanks for visiting guys your the best! And yes to my other McGee siblings this is a challenge to you to be the best also. Timing was perfect while they were here because Zoe had her ballet recital and it was awesome! Mr. Rinat is sooooo talented and choreographed an amazing night of ballet which I at times forgot was not professional. Zoe was an Angel in the prayer dance. They don't allow flash photography during the performance so I just have a picture of Zoe and the bows at the end! Zoe was so excited and couldn't wait to show what she had learned. The ballet went for three days so Zoe thought that at the end of every day she should get a rose (just like the first) good thing we came through for her! Anyway all is well and ballet is over for two months but we will resume end of July.
