Baby shower and monster truck show.

We've had some fun events this May! One weekend we had some extended family visiting in Sioux Falls, so we went there on a Friday and got to see them and go to the zoo. Lucy and Ellory didn't have school that day because it was kindergarten visit day, and we let Norah skip to tag along too! It would have been an early out for her too, so she didn't miss too much. We headed back again the following day for a baby shower for my cousin. 

Fun at the zoo! We didn't get to see as much as usual because some animals weren't back out yet from winter and many of the birds weren't out because of avian influenza, but we still had fun and glad we could go!

Fun to see my aunt and some cousins that we don't get to see often. We got to meet my cousin Alexandra's baby Jack, and celebrate my other cousin Victoria at her baby shower!

We also tried the monster truck show! I saw that it was coming to a town fairly close to us, so we thought it would be fun to do something different! We didn't know if the girls would like it or not, but we thought we'd give it a try. It started off a tad on the wrong foot right away because of the noise situation. I had ordered the girls noise canceling headphones prior, but amazon somehow delayed the package and then cancelled it, which didn't leave enough time to order more. We stopped on the way and got some ear plugs, so we had something, but headphones would have been better.

Norah was crying (our most sensitive to noise, which is also a good thing after getting her tubes last summer), and thankfully a kind soul behind us had two extra pairs that Norah and Ellory wore. Thankfully Lucy was okay and wore the plugs and held her hands over her ears. That helped a lot!

Honestly, it was fun to give it a try and I'm glad we attempted, but we left at intermission. It was loud and smoky and a bit slow moving. But there were many little boys there who looked super pumped, which was cute!

Here were their ratings- thumbs down from Norah and Ellory, one of each from Lucy. :)
