Week 15

We finished up the week of Spring Break with a fun weekend. No dance Friday meant that Kaitlyn and I had time to help the residents at the rest home make cards (Mom is the Rec Director there and suckered me into it). Kaitlyn is great with them and had fun. I on the other hand thought it was harder to do than get a group of 2 year olds to accomplish the same activity. While we were helping Ty got to be Grandpa's buddy.

In the afternoon the kids and I went to the park. Saturday I went to lunch and shopping with a friend so the kids and Sam did a little shopping of their own and had some more park time.

On Sunday we met Sam's family at the Planetarium and Grandma and Grandpa Jackson treated everyone to the 3D movie about the Hubble telescope. Science and documentaries and really not my thing but I had a lot of fun watching Ty trying to reach out and catch the stars. I was surprised that he wore his 3D glasses almost the entire time.

We couldn't leave the Gateway without visiting the fountain. The kids love it. No idea why we didn't think to pack an extra change of clothes.

Kaitlyn lost her 2nd tooth on Sunday night. Looks like the tooth fairy pays very well for teeth. Kaitlyn thinks she is now "rich."

Back to normal life Monday. School, lots of playing outside (and yard work) during the good weather, which lasted until Thursday. Then we got snow but it melted again by the afternoon.
Ty had a bike accident on Tues - of course it was the one time he insisted on wearing his cowboy hat instead of his bike helmet. As you can see, he got right back on the bike - with the helmet this time - as soon as we had him cleaned up. Then he was so exhausted he fell asleep - that would be the 2nd of 3 naps this week. Outside time must wear him out.
And of course soccer games on Tuesday and Thursday.
