The kids were downstairs playing.  Next thing I know Victor is running up the stairs crying...

V - Dirkie and Evie won't let me play in their tent

So I go downstairs and tell them to let him play in their homemade tent with them. 

E - But he has to follow the rules.
M - Teach him the rules so that he learns how to play nice with you.
E - There is only one rule.
M - Well, tell him what it is and teach him how to follow the rule.
E, turning to Victor - You have to be at least 6 years old to play in the tent.

M - *sigh*

Children's Museum

We both got a Sunday off a few weeks ago, which is very rare for us to have a weekend day off. We took advantage of this and met Uncle Scottie, Auntie Sarah, Jeremy, Kyrsten and G at the Children's Museum to check out the Grossology exhibit. I'm not sure who had more fun, my kids, their cousins or Uncle Scottie :D

Captain Dirk

Dirk yelling at the passengers in the bus lol

Victor loved the water area

Syllie and G had fun building spinning wheel combinations

Construction worker Victor lol

Dirk painted his face

Syllie spent most of the time in her stroller and one worker had a frog puppet to entertain her for a bit.

Eve became a turtle. She loved that.

Yeah, pretty sure the burp machine was really popular haha. So gross.

Eve painted her face. lol Zombie Eve
I don't think she thought it was so crazy looking.

Eve climbing the tooth wall

Victor of course got a kick out of the fart machine

Playing the giant Operation game

Dirk climbing the zit and wart wall

Not a chance I wasn't going to not catch Eve climbing on everything lol

We had a great time. I definitely want to take the kids again next year :D

G comes for a visit

On the way home we hooked Ollie up to the stroller and he helped pull Syllie home :D

They LOVED this tire swing

Syllie is getting so big - she loved running up and going down the slides all by herself. Mom of course freaked out about her falling off the edge of some of the ladders. I hate this age for summer. I have to be by her side constantly.

Me and my mommy :D

lol These kinds of pics are my favorite lol


We were driving past Ryan's work...

M- Hey, Victor, what's that?
V - Daddy's work.
M - What do we call Daddy's work?
V - Work. -with the biggest 'duh look' I've ever seen lol

After we stopped giggling, we proceeded to tell him it's called Rooms and Rest.
