Family Fun Week

After Andy's graduation, we had family in town for the week.  Philip made sure to show everyone a good time.


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.

Bath time!

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. 

Serious fun

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.
