Sunday was Mother's Day. It was the first time that we got to celebrate the day with both of our mothers, plus my sister and Andy's aunt, who is like a mother. The men cooked us a dinner of grilled steak, twice-baked potatoes, and a salad. We had a great time!
It was raining on Monday, so we went to the roller skating rink for toddler time. Everyone brings in a ride-on or push toy and the kids run around the rink. The kiddos tend to abandon their own toys and try out everyone else's. It is a great way to try out new toys.
My sister left the next morning, but my parents were still in town. We went to a local play space for the first time and got to play with trains, basketballs, a bounce house, a tool bench, and much more.
On Wednesday, we took a break from the kid stuff and went shopping. Mom and I picked out some gifts for Philip's birthday. It is getting pretty impossible to go to a toy store or even near the toy aisle of a store without Philip going nuts. Times are changing! When we went to the mall, we stopped in at a woman's clothing store. As soon as we walked in, Philip exclaimed, "Oh no!" He knew what he was in for!
On Thursday, we went to a local park that has farm animals, plus a great playground. It was my first time going to this park and it was great to find a new place to go. Philip loved it, so we will definitely be back.
Checking out the new baby chicks
Andy had Friday off of work, so I wanted to do something big. We went to the science center in Baltimore. I had gone one time with Philip and some friends, but have been wanting to go again with Andy. Philip had a blast and we loved watching him play.
Of course we pay to go to a nice museum and what is his favorite thing to do?
Play with the train table. He loves his Choo Choos!
The water table came in as a close second.
We enjoyed lunch at Cheesecake Factory and then headed home after our big day out. It was a great week and so fun to share some of Philip's favorite spaces with his grandparents.
