TLDR – Mat towers, mat dinners, haircut, birthday for Kahleesi, superman shirts, Weaver Park, Odd things, missing teeth, and muff diver pizzas
We are up to about 10-floor mats now. The kids have been using them to build all kinds of things. Towers, houses, slides, you name it; they’ve tried it. Some days they will build towers inside trying to see how tall they can get them. Another day they will build Multi-room houses in the back yard and have a who can stay in their house the longest challenge. It’s fun to watch them build new things all the time and come up with new games to play with their mats.
Dinner and Dates on the mats
A few weeks ago Michelle and I ate our last Boboli pizza from the states. We decided to eat it in the playroom and have ourselves a mini date while the kids were watching a movie. Maddex built us a table out of the mats for our date. No candles or nothing, but still a great date. A week or so after that we had a picnic-style dinner on the back deck. Maddex and Mila built us a picnic table out of the mats for dinner.
Khaleesi Turned 5 this summer
Another orbit around the sun for Khaleesi. We had a mellow birthday for her; themed around whatever Khaleesi wanted to do. We started off with some present opening in the morning, a walk to Mr. B’s in Nutgrove for some coin dozer, Mr, Price for art supplies, McDonalds for lunch, and home for cake and a movie. Khaleesi got to do whatever she wanted for the day and she sure enjoyed the power. Being able to direct the day was her favorite part of the day.
Maddex let mom cut his hair
Maddex has not allowed us to cut his hair for a year or so, and it’s starting to get a bit long. He does not want to pull it back into a bun or ponytail so it’s all over the place. Michelle talked him into letting her cut his hair as long he got a Lego set and I cut my hair. Well, we both have short hair now and the kids got to build some legos.
We had a day to kill and wanted to check out a new park; Michelle found one we’d not been to before. Michelle had us ride the LUAS into town where our first stop was Offbeat donuts; mmm donut. From there we walked to Weaver park to play. The park is great with a huge wood house thing in the middle to climb on and a skate park all the same space. Sad for us after about 20 minutes it started to rain. We hide under the house for a bit waiting for the rain to calm down then we walked back to the LUAS. On the way back the rain varied intensity all over the place. We hide under some awnings a few times on the walk back trying to avoid being totally drenched. We totally need to check out Weaver park again when its dryer and we have more time.
Dressing like dad
The kids each put on one of my shirts one night and bounced all over the house making noise. Managed to take a few pictures of them in matching shirts
