Back in January we decided that even though Kaleb hates being seperated from his
shadow sister it was important to do something fun with just him each month. In February we ordered pizza, stocked up on popcorn & ice cream and rented a few movies. We dragged his mattress into the living room and had an amazing night. The kid has an uncanny ability to keep his eyes open way past his bedtime.
This month we decided to take a trip down to the Cincinnati Museum Center. The last time B & I ventured down there I was just barely pregnant with Kaleb:
We had such a blast that we thought our little monkey would enjoy it too. The museum has a couple of different sections, including an amazing children's set up.
A gigantic tree house :) his favorite!
Climbing, Climbing, more Climbing
Yeah, B followed him everywhere. Thank God the man is in shape.
He kept clogging the tube pretending his left hand was stuck.
Riding the fake Metro with Mommy!
Paying for his groceries... yes that's all meat. Boys.
I'm going to show him this when he
doesn't want to help B in the yard when he's older.
He kept saying, "Playin like George Mom!"
(as in Curious George, his favorite episode)
After hanging out in the Children's Museum all morning we decided to take a bathroom & lunch break. Can I please say how thankful I am that I didn't even have to ask B to take Kaleb? He scooped him up, headed to the bathroom for a diaper change & met me back in the lobby for lunch. Apparently our gigantic toddler exceeded the weight limit for the changer so B had to hold it up with his leg... the entire time Kaleb saying, "I going to fall Dad. Help! Help!"
We decided to venture into the adult sections of the museum after lunch and although it wasn't as "hands on" Kaleb enjoyed it just as much.
DINOSAURS! (We hung out here forever!)
Pretend riding on of the old street cars
My boys :) I love them.
We made a quick stop in the gift shop before we left...
... and we ended up walking away with Sid & Buck from Ice Age.
It was such a fun day, we'll have to do it again this year. They have so much more to see & do. We didn't even begin to get into all the different areas.
And no, he didn't fall asleep on the way home like every other child in America. What do you have to do to wear a kid out these days?
And just for kicks... I took this picture of Kamryn yesterday.
Yep, she's becoming a very green-eyed girl. Who would've guessed that?!
... More updates soon!
