baseball & bears

Baseballs and bears were a great combination for the Davis family over Mother's Day Weekend.We enjoyed the Cardinal game even though they lost terribly. But being together in a stadium atmosphere still made for a great night.
 Of course the teacher in me somehow wants to turn everything into a thematic  unit for my boys.
So the week before we headed out and took a quick trip to the library in search of zoo & baseball books. As well as a few quick and easy crafts and goody bags for the road. 
*creating their lions*

 *enjoying their selections of books from the library*


*they loved the capsules that turned into zoo animals*

 The boys enjoyed the snack bar more than the game. They were fixing drinks and snacks for us and of course Meg got involved and fixed them a tip jar. I don't even think they knew there was a game going on but they had so much fun. Kase called it his restaurant.

*this is how they traveled then entire walk back to the hotel*

I found a zoo scavenger hunt on pinterest that the boys loved!! Kase was determined to mark off all of the animals on his chart so he led the way around the zoo.

 *This past year in preschool Kase had made some binoculars out of toilet paper rolls. He and Knox put these to great use on this trip!*

*the boys were intrigued with the arch*

We finished the weekend off  at Fitz bottling company for supper. They had the absolute best floats!!
