Children's Museum of Southern MN

 We recently went on a field trip to the Children's Museum of Southern MN with our school ECFE and preschool program. Henry was pretty excited because he got to ride the bus for this field trip.

Last time we were at this museum was when I was carrying him in the Snugli, so it's been a long time and there has been much improvement and it is much bigger. We had a lot of fun and we are going to have to go back again soon with sister.

 This little owl was a favorite of his. He has a similar owl at home that is a FAVORITE and I wouldn't let him bring it along, but when he found this one there he had to carry it around with him.

Again with the owl! Here he is climbing on the foam blocks and pretending he is Spiderman scaling the wall. He's pretty in to Superman right now. Daddy recently showed him some old original Batman shows and he goes in to a trance.

This is Henry with his friend Ava. She & her mom came along with us (plus a lot of other people.)

Great Serengeti Waterpark

Just extra couple pictures of Henry from the waterpark visit in February, the rest will be in an upcoming Wordless Wednesday on Save Green Being Green.

RAD Zoo with a Friend

 Henry had a playdate with his friend Ava at the RAD Zoo about a week and a half ago. While we were there we got to see a baby tortoise hatch out of an egg, so cool!

Snow Day on 2/22

MN Zoo Trip

 Our first ride on the tram was pretty neat, even if we did have to wait a long time to go on the ride. It moves a lot slower than you would expect.
 I am playing catch-up today on the kids blogs.....the computer I had been uploading all my pictures on was being funky (still is, but it's working ok right now) so I couldn't get at them. So, I am way behind on pictures for stuff so now you get a bunch to look at.

Anyways, these are pictures from our family trip to the MN Zoo on Presidents' Day.

Henry was most excited to see the sharks and was talking about it the whole morning until we got there to see them.

Okee Dokee Brother Concert

 I took Henry to the Okee Dokee concert (after they just won a Grammy for best kids album) at Toddler Tuesday at the Mall of America. We met his friends Lilliana and Emmalin there.
 We all had lunch at Crave after the concert and then I took Henry on a few rides at Nickelodeon Universe. We did this the 2nd Tuesday in February.

Where does wool come from?

 These pictures were taken at the Steele County Historical Society on the first Thursday in February (that's their kids day!) and the theme was Where does wool come from? The kids got to pet 3 10-day old lambs and then watch a lady spinning wool in to yarn and practice rolling cotton themselves to "make yarn" and then doing a cotton ball sheep art project.

This coming Thursday we will go to the next kids event, which is supposed to be all about old-timey games.
