Water Tower

I was in the kitchen, Gilbert kept running back and forth grabbing water bottles from the cupboard, I looked up and he said "look mom I am making a water tower". Was able to snap a photo before they all fell down.

Kalahari Water Park

If you live in the midwest and you have not yet visited Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells- What are you waiting for??? We just took our 3rd annual trip with 4 other families and we had a blast. Rented the "Party Villa" with a home theater on the lower level. After a day in the water all the kids took in a movie before bed. You gotta go- your kids will love it!

Valentine's Day Continued

Like I mentioned in my last post, Gilbert scored big this Valentines, beside some thoughtful cards and candies from friends and neighbors, his grandparents sent him Cold Hard CASH. Now typically we teach G about saving his $ for something really special, but this time we let him spend it- and did he ever. Here is what we did on Saturday...

I dropped G and PJ off at the Metra Station, I drove out to the Burbs and met them at the Downers Grove Station. It was a THRILLING RIDE for Little Man. They sat on the upper level and G could see everything (I won't bore you with all of the Trains he saw, but he saw a Ton) Then it was a short ride to the ALL ABOARD DINER where we had lunch and a milkshake. The ALL ABOARD DINER is a family owned operation where you sit at a large horseshoe shaped bar and your food gets delivered via Electric Train- this was pretty awesome.
Just a few stores down there was a Hobby Shop with a large Train Display in the window- coincidence? I think Not! At the hobby shop he picked up a few new items for his wooden train and a Magnetic Solar System Board, since he is learning about this at school he grabbed it quickly and we were out the door. It was a quiet ride home. He has informed us that he would like to do it all over again this weekend!!

It's been a while...

I am not much of a Blogger. I thought I could take over for PJ, but it does not come easy for me. I am going to make an effort to get something new up once a week for all of you who love to see what is going on with our little man. He is keeping us on our toes - that is for sure. Getting a good photos is also proving to be a challange.
So a questions to all of you Bloggers- When and where do you blog?
Gilbert had a good Valentine's Day. His Gram sent him a package with some books and is very own spatula! This was a big hit and we Immediately baked a batch of cookies.
