Blaze Game

The action 
The Blaze is Utahs Arena Football team. I personally would rather watch arena football then regular football any day.  Ted called and said he had some tickets and asked if I wanted to take the kids for opening night. We had sooo much fun! I got cranky for a minute when the lady in front of us complained about my kids bouncing but we moved seats and had a blast (and the people who took our spot had more kids and younger kids, made me happy, petty but happy)
Its all about the snacks!

Zach was so into the game. It killed me. He watched the score and he cheered for the Blaze. Usually he cheers for both teams if he even pays attention. This was the first time he was really into the competition. It was the highlight of the night watching him get so wound up in it.

Nachos you say? She is IN!
Chelsea liked the dancers of course. When I took her to the bathroom,  excuse me, ONE of the times I took her to the bathroom, she saw one of the dancers and told her "I like your dancing!" and then the dancer had a whole conversation with her about it that I couldn't hear because of the music. It was really sweet. I think it was the highlight for Chelsea.

The game was pretty intense. The Blaze were up quite a bit at the beginning but the Sabercats caught up to them and it was really close the rest of the game. With 13 seconds left the Blaze got ahead by 1 point and thats how it ended.  

Zach wants to go to every game from now on. He told me "its so much more exciting and action-ey then basketball!"  He liked the tackling and when they would kick the ball alllllll the way across the field.

Tracy Aviary

Zachs balloon alien 
I was driving past Liberty Park the other day and realized that I really wanted to go to the aviary. We used to go all of the time but we hadn't been in ages. So I made a plan to go. And even better, I stuck with it!

First the kids and I went to IHOP like a bunny (or in Zachs case, IHOP like a kangaroo). Its one of those really neat places for the kids that feels wildy special because we never go there. I took them after the 4th of July parade last year and they ask to go all of the time now. We went 1 other time since. So this was very special. And they had Lorax kids meals. Spoiler: Zach DOES like green eggs and ham! The balloon animal guy was there and made some pretty special balloons for them.

Cotton Candy!!

After that we headed over to the Aviary. We got pretty lucky, they were having a party.  They had cotton candy, face painting, and some fun crafts. And a REALLY fun sing-a-long bird show. Zach was nervous about getting his face painted, I think he believes he is too old. I had to promise to do mine also if he would do it. It even required a pinky swear.

We had a great time. I remember why I liked it there so much! The great spring weather didn't hurt either. =D

My buddy! Zach said "where is your friend mom?" and he left
the group and came over to us. =D
