Philadelphia - Not Just a Cheese

We went to Philadelphia for the weekend. Mom did a great job entertaining me on the flight up. She even had some guy tell her I was the best behaved toddler he had ever seen on a plane. She owes it all to good snacks, airplane stickers, and iPad games.

Mom and Dad took me to the Hard Rock Cafe. They wanted to start a pin collection for me. I fell asleep in the car on the way over there. Boy, was I mad to be woken up to go into the cafe. What were they thinking interrupting my schedule AND my nap? I let them know it too. I spent my first Hard Rock visit fussing. I didn't like the food. I picked out a Ben Franklin pin on the way out.

On Saturday Dad and I went to the Please Touch Museum. It was heaven. I got to drive a bus, hop on lily pads, go shopping, cook, and so much more. I rode a carousel for the first time.

Then we got Mom and went to the second largest mall in the country. Mom and Dad thought they could wheel me around in my stroller. I got news for them. I'm done with that thing! I push it now! I don't care who gets in my way! Mom and Dad got a little fustrated with me, but some other people were laughing. Mom said something about it being Dad's "jeans at work." I have no idea what jeans have to do with it.

When we were leaving the mall we saw a double rainbow.

On Sunday we went back to the Please Touch Museum. I wanted to treat Mom to Mother's Day there. After having more fun there, we headed to the airport. I fell asleep in the car (of course, after all that learning!). I woke up to find myself strapped into that horrible stroller in some long security line. I WAS MAD AND I LET EVERYONE KNOW IT.  I have no idea why, but Mom got both sympathy looks and stink eyes.

After we cleared security I started to feel better. I gave Mom a hug and she patted me on the back. I padded her back too and that made her melt. She forgave me. I decided to be good on the flight, but I'll make up for that on a future flight. My friend Connor told me it is toddler code that we have to be horrible while traveling. I have to live up to the code.

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.

Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.

Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
