We went down to the Leonardo museum in downtown Salt Lake to see Becca’s “Reflections” project (Reflections is a national art contest put on by the PTA).  All of the projects that went to the state competition were on display.  Becca’s project is a mean word chomper that eats mean words and poops out gumballs that sprout into flowers (Beca gets 100% credit for the concept).

Also tried out the giant bird nest, did some painting, and played the bucket-drums. .

We took the kids to Lowe’s on Saturday to build the free kids project–planters with a see-through front piece.

We also decided we needed some plants to fill the planters.  After LOTS of negotiations and fighting among the kids trying to decide on a on six-pack of flowers, we ended up with some nice little blue flowers.  They were very serious about their flowers and adamant that we add worms as well.  Two big fish-bait night-crawlers in each.

I took Becca tot he children’s symphony at Abravenel Hall in SLC.  As an aspiring violin player she was pretty excited about it.

Later in the afternoon, we went to the park by our house.  Once we saw some other people there flying kits, we sent Adam home to get the kits.  Funny enough, we did kites and symphony on the same day last year as well.

The kids were very excited about St. Patrick’s Day.  All very worried about wearing a sufficient amount of green, and made sure that Adam was wearing green when he went out the door to work.

That’s a big chunk of cabbage that Caroline is holding.  Turns out that with enough butter and salt, the kids are actually pretty happy to eat cabbage.

Green Jello to keep with the festive theme.
