2/20/09: Disney on Ice World's of Fantasy

We had a great time today at Disney on Ice World's of Fantasy. It was such a fun show. We got to see Cars characters like Lightening McQueen, Mater and Sally, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Tinkerbell and all the fairies. There was even a Princess pre-show to see pretty Princess gowns and see Cinderella up close. The kids and I had a great time. We even went with our buddy Tanya and her Mommy. A good time was had by all. Even though we just went to Disney on Ice Mickey and Minnie's Magical Journey in December it was worth going again. Enjoy the pictures. And as always more pictures of the family on our Shutterfly Share Site.

2/18/09: Lauren goes to the potty!

Lauren went poopy and pee pee on the potty for the first time last night. Of course she isn't even 2 yet but we were very proud of her. I am in no rush to train her with her being so young, but we will see. (**Update: she has gone about 7 times now asking us to go)

2/17/09: Nature of My Backyard animal show

We went to a animal show at the Billerica Library the other night. It was lots of fun and we got to see cool animals including a baby alligator. So cool. Evan loved it.

2/7/09: Building is Fun!

Today we went to the Home Depot for their Kid's Workshop. They are the first Saturday of every month. The kids had a great time. Here they are with their certificates and Evan is holding the finished product. The kids get certificates, a pin with the project they made, an apron, and of course their project to take home. I highly recommend it.

Lauren all ready to go with her apron on.

Since they have the aprons now they think they work at the Home Depot.

Then we headed over to Friendly's for lunch. Yum, ice cream.
Then off to skating. What a busy day.
Here we are at music the other night. I just thought it was cute that Evan put his arm around Lauren.

2/2/09: Imajine That Playspace

I was home today because I am in a training class the next three days so my work days changed. With Mommy home you know what that means, time to go do something fun. We went to Imajine That in Lawrence. The kids had a great time. They even made me climb through this with them. The last time we went here was a year ago. Lauren looks so different now.
Here is the structure they made me climb through.

2/1/09: Super Bowl Party and a Birthday Party

Today we went to a Super Bowl party at the YMCA in Reading. The kids had a great time.
They even made helmet crafts.
And they both kicked the football a bit.
Then Evan and Mommy were off to a birthday party at GymStreet USA for a gymnastics/bounce house party for one of his classmates from school. Here is one of the bounce slides.
Now time for pizza and cake. All that bouncing made Evan work up an appetite. Here he is sitting next to the birthday girl. What a fun day!
