Chloe had the idea to go to the bounce house place today. Although the weather was amazing, and I wanted to go to the zoo, she was just so excited I couldn't say no! What a good choice. Not only did Chloe love it (and not stop running around for the 2.5 hrs we were there) but Maddie also had a great time crawling around and exploring in the little kids area. Oh did I mention she can stand up now? Oh yes and she can do it without holding on to anything too. Her balance is shocking!
Since Chloe was on a roll with the decision making, I let her choose what she wanted for lunch. "Pineapple rice and noodles" Okay Thai it is. Thai food here is really good and the wait is usually pretty significant. We called it in and went to a nearby lake to hang out while we waited.
The lake is still frozen, although it does look a little slushy. We will be getting those kayaks out in no time!
After lunch I decided to keep the good time going, and get out the tent. It has been a long time since it has been out. Distance makes the heart grow fonder for sure! This is the first time Maddie has seen it, and she loved it! They were laughing and squealing and having a great time. I had to grab the camera. It is so darn cute when they play together!
If you have kids, a tent with a tunnel is definitely a good investment. In fact Chloe is asleep in her tent right now. We dragged it up to her room. Loaded it with blankets and pillows, read stories and she was out! Now I have to go clean up all the remnants of a day well spent. What a fun day!
