Splish Splash

Kip has been keeping herself very busy while I pack!

Ready To Go

We're leaving soon on a road trip to Texas to visit some of Scott's aunts and uncles and grandparents.  Gus has been really involved in helping me get ready: planning what to bring, shopping for snacks, packing up the suitcases (and playing in them!).  He's incredibly excited and keeps asking if it's time to go yet.  Finally, I guess he decided he'd had enough waiting.  He packed up Kip (in the backseat) and "drove" to Texas himself:)

Fresh Air

We've had a few days of warmer weather this past week, so we headed outside for some play time. 

 It was a bit windy, but the kids had a blast in the sandbox and running around in the yard.

We also went for a visit to the Chattanooga Zoo one afternoon.  Even though it's definitely not world class, our tiny zoo has some great perks.  We were THE ONLY PEOPLE there. The kids can get SO close to the animals.  And I don't feel like it's a waste of time to go when we only have an hour or so before dinner because we can see everything!

Kip spent most of the time saying, "Meow!" or "Moo!": the two animals sounds she has definitely mastered.

 "Hey, you, look at ME!"

 On the way home, I captured this moment.  Warms a Mama's heart!

Cut and Paste

Today, Gus and I worked on using scissors and a glue stick.  He had a blast and I was amazed that he could find vehicle pictures in my old parenting magazines:)  The results are now gracing our refrigerator.
