|We went swimming at one of the new neighborhood pools! It was empty the whole time we were there and the kids loved it!|
|We drove up to Kansas with Boppi and stayed the night in Moore, OK..they were so excited to be almost to Kansas! And who doesn't love riding on the cart?!|
|Reunited with Jack, they missed each other so much! Lots of hugs, giggles, and talking about their lives the 9 days they were apart!|
|Apparently this is the token "silly" picture our family takes!|
Today, I took the kids to Kaleidoscope! One of my favorite places! We parked at Union Station, saw the trains, walked along the links to Crown Center, the kids loved seeing all the cars and walking so high up, and really loved Kaleidoscope! It's located at the Hallmark World Headquarters, connected to Crown Center (so magical at Christmas with the lights, trees, ice skating and has outdoor movies and festivals in the Spring and Summer) and Kaleidoscope is a free, hands-on learning place where children create crafts and learn at their own pace! LOVE IT! They made a mess, enjoyed coloring and creating designs on the wall with a black light, and let their creative juices flow! It was a little challenge helping all three get started at first on the projects, but we managed! For 45 minutes, they had a blast and it was FREE!
When our time was over, we went to the Hallmark Visitors Center and went on a little tour about the Hallmark Company, family, etc. They tried to make bows (machine was broken) and they loved collecting stamps during the tour, an overall good time! We made a pit stop back in Crown Center for snacks and what did the boys fascinate over....
They stood there for 20 minutes, I kid you not! And loved every second of it!
|Making masks, they loved it!|
|Her version of paradise, she loved all the crafts!|
|He actually stayed in one spot for a good 10 minutes!|
|Really? This is what they loved the most about our adventure today! Love the brotherly bond!|
|Someone was feeling left out!|
Side note: The entire way to Kaleidoscope, Jack complained the whole time, resulting in some hitting and yelling from various people in the car. Ahem. He didn't want to go, it was going to be boring, it was for babies, blah, blah, blah. Poor Molly was so excited and always looks at the bright side of everything (need to regain that attitude!), and he just whacked her for being happy! I was mad. I yelled. There were tears from several of us. We all calmed down and by the time he saw trains at Union Station, he was excited! For. Real. We all hugged and we all had fun!
Now, some time to finish things up here and there before Eric and I go back to pack up our house and say our last good-byes to Texas! Can we just skip all of these good-byes, they're really wearing on me?! OK, thanks!
