Handy Manny Event

Today we went to the Mills Mall for the Handy Manny Kidgits Event. After "checking in" and choosing between a book or an Easter bucket (she chose the bucket), Kaitlynn got to spin the wheel and won a lollipop. She received a license plate and Handy Manny tool box to decorate. She didn't decorate them there because the tables were too crowded. She played in the play area, rode the train twice, played on the rides and the carousel once. We ate lunch and then went to get her birthday gift for being a Kidgits member. She got a coloring book, crayons, puzzle, jump rope, bubbles, a couple toys, coupons, free mylar balloon from Create A Party, and a green Kidgits tote bag. We went to Children's Place to purchase the flip flops that Kaitlynn lives in from Spring to early Fall. She picked out 2 pairs, then we found another pair that were on clearance. Kaitlynn had to wear a pair of her new flip flops as soon as we left the store. We went to Cabela's to look at the different displays. We went to Justice and bought another Zhu Zhu pet (hamster) and then to Gymboree. Every time we go into Gymboree, Kaitlynn always asks to go watch the TV. She, most of the time, just sits and watches or dances / plays around that area while I shop. I got her the cutest swim suit. I can't wait for her to wear it. She loves it too. She had a choice between 3 and picked this one. Then she took it out of the bag and carried it to the car. She fell asleep with it in her hands / lap!

We continued with the Mexican theme and made bean and cheese enchiladas, rice, asparagus and corn for dinner. It was another yummy dinner.

Dry Pants On

I'm sure you have heard the song Pants on the Ground, well I made up my own version that we have started singing to Kaitlynn. Here it goes:

Looking like a big girl with your dry pants on

Kaitlynn has even started singing it. I'll have to get a video of that and post it.

Almost Spring

Friday, Kaitlynn and I played outside in the backyard. She rode her jeep, we played "soccer", she played in her castle, played in her house, played in her barn / farm (as she calls it), climbed on her slides and climbing cube, chased Bailey, helped daddy rake the garden and played with Turtle.
We were very excited to meet the twins. The neighbor's had their twin girls about a week and a half ago. They are just adorable!

We had Hanna and Adam over for dinner. We made spinach, chicken and cheese quesadillas (of course mine was just spinach and cheese), rice and refried black beans. It was so yummy!

1, 2, 3 Slide!

Thursday our playgroup was supposed to meet at the Zoo. Apparently everyone in St. Louis had the same idea. We forgot that it was Spring Break week. After seeing all the traffic at the Zoo, we changed plans and went to Tilles Park. It was a fun day. Kaitlynn and Kylie had a good time chasing each other. Ella had fun going down the huge slide. Beatrice, Ava and Aidan were content just watching all the kids running around and playing. It was such a beautiful day!
