Yesterday we chose to steal the kids away from the house and their electronics, and take a car trip to Monroe to the Reptile Museaum. Everyone time we go they are working on new displays and have changed things up so we feel like we are seeing new animals every time. Thanks to GROUPON we got in for cheap, and left with another stuffed addition to our family! Mr Albino Alligator! Ethan wasn't too excited about going but he agreed and off we went. We played quiz questions in the car and on the way back listened to everyone's "inspiring/motivating" song choice. Two of my children listen to way too much Spanish/Catalonian music. Here is that list:
Charlie- Shut Up and Dance with Me by Walk the Moon
Ethan- Danza Kuduro by Don Omar
Valerie- La Flama by Obrint Pas
Me- Come Walk with Me Now by Kongos
Mark-Closer to the Edge by Thirty Seconds to Mars
After the Reptile Zoo we went to the Tullalip Casino and outlet mall. Charlie asked if after dinner she could play the slot machines. I told her she is underage and in the State of Washington it is illegal for her to play them. She said, "we need a new President, Obama doesn't let us do anything!" Soooo funny!
When we got home we all rushed to get our PJ's on and headed to the couch to watch the new documentary about RENALDO. I'm so glad my kids have different interests because I would've never watched this on my own. It was really good. I hope he wins the Ballon d'Or this year!
