Sea World, Legoland?

I was wondering if anyone was interested in going to either of these two places on Wednesday. I may or may not be able to go, but was wondering if anyone was planning on it. Thanks!

In case you missed it

ok, so I don't know that many people even check this blog and i'm not sure if we're supposed to post stuff like this, but why not, right? we had a great time at Sea World on friday (although it was REALLY busy). I didn't get many good pictures, but I caught one of Shauna "taking one for the team" with some of the bigger kids on the ride that gets you soaking (and in a white t-shirt at that, ha ha)... and half of Leticia and Maren at the Pets Rule show - hope nobody minds me posting some not great pictures :)

As we moved quickly away from the guy with the cigarette and the oxygen tank it provided a great educational opportunity for the kids on flammability (sad?/scary?)..

Book Club/ Story Time

Please join us this Wednesday at the Stake center at 10:30 for a fun filled story time. The theme for this week is Dr. Seuss. The older kids will be talking about the book My Dog May be a Genius. Even if your child hasn't read it, come anyway. We had a lot of fun last week just talking about books, and you can sign up for the book club, and see what other books we will be reading this summer. See you there!
