A fun afternoon

She is such a funny girl.

We picked Ally up from school and drove to the museum.
We met Matt there and had a good 45 minutes to have fun.
The kids had fun.  Much easier to have fun when it's not so busy.

A warm afternoon

 We had a fabulous 63 degree day and I decided that we were going to enjoy it.
We walked down to pick Ally up from school, we rode bikes, we climbed trees, we played in the sandbox and just had a great 2 hours outside.

 Ben was being a turtle.

 While the girls were taking a bath, these two had fun painting pictures for their teachers.

Sunday best

She was so tired.

 I did rag curls on Ally Saturday night.
It turned out SUPER curly, which means it's super knotty today.  
It's going to be a not so fun challenge to comb it out after her shower tonight.

 Ally told the kids to make a silly face.

A fun day

Friday night I cut Ben and Matt's hair.  
Sounds easy right?  Not so much.  Ben HATES the feeling of hair on his skin.  And even more, he can't handle the feel of the hair clippers on his head.  He needed a hair cut and we were willing to make a deal.
I had picked up this fun table for his birthday.  Well now we have to get him a new present.

 I had taken the 3 older kids upstairs for a nap and thought Matt was getting Jo down from the table.  Well he thought I was coming back downstairs, so he went out to the garage.  He came back inside to find her asleep.

Grandma Horn made Ben this vest and he decided that Friday was dress up day for school.
Lucky for him, his teacher is fine if he dresses up, hat, boots and all.

 She is such a crack up.  Her vocabulary is amazing.  If you ask her to say something she can do it 90 % of the time. Most of what she asks can be understood.

She still has 6 months

Jo is dealing with the terrible 2's, even though she's 18 months old.
We have to watch her because she'll start throwing herself around and has come extremely close to hitting her head on corners of everything around the house.

It works

These 2 little girls have a hard time understanding that when I am going to do there hair, it's going to get done.  To make things a bit easier on them and me, the ipod and kindle help out.

Childrens Museum

We started off with the transformers in the lobby.
 Then we walked to the bottom level and started our museum adventure with the dinosaurs.
We made our way through the exhibits just fine.
Then there was the hot wheels exhibit that I KNEW Ben would love.
The kids were having fun.  Matt and I were keeping our eyes on the kids as best as we could (it was super crazy busy in there).  

 That's when Matt frantically says "where's Ben?".  
So the search began...a scary 10 minutes later we had him back with us.
He had walked off with a family and luckily that family was nice enough to return him.  
Poor guy was scared.  We had a stern talk about staying close to our family. We did a short pow-wow with the kids on a buddy system.  Then we bravely walked into playscapes.  The buddy system worked pretty well.  Ally and Lucy stayed together and took turns doing what the other wanted to do.  

 We ventured up to the carousel and ended our adventure for the day.
