We took Finn to the bird show in the amphitheater and he LOVED it. They show all kinds of birds (including the bald eagle seen above) and many fly right over your head! (as seen in the following video.) Finn still talks about the bird show he saw.
It was a REALLY hot day and Finn fell asleep as soon as we got in the car. When he woke up from his nap, he talked all about his day at the zoo and even talked about it the whole next day. We are so glad that Aaron could play hookie so we could have this fun family day together!

Taking my non-craftiness into account, I am pretty proud of the recipe book I just made for myself. My recipe box has always been a disaster -- it's full of scribbled notes on all kinds of paper, printouts, smudged recipe cards etc. etc. etc.
I found an old photo album that I've had since my wedding and decided to transfer all my recipes into it. First of all, the title makes me happy:
I made tabs out of some old dividers I had from school and attached them with scrapbook adhesive for quick-flip referencing.
I also have a lot of recipes on double-sided 81/2 x 11 paper...you know, hand-outs from relief society activities and things like that. So I just slid those into page protecters and clipped them into the binder in the appropriate place. Originally, I was planning on copying them onto 3x5 cards so everything would be uniform...but as I said...I just don't have a lot of patience...so page protectors did the trick!
Now I can see 8 recipes at a time and they are all organized! I will never rummage through my crappy recipe box again. I know it looks pretty ghetto, but coming from a non-crafter, I gotta say I am pretty pleased.

*I just edited this post to include the following video. This is the one I took just BEFORE the one at the bottom that made me think it might be okay for Finn to take his own video. I think it sets up the last one a little better than just watching it on its own. Please ignore my fat pregnancy face.
