Locks, Garbage, Beetles, and Bowling - All in a Weekend's Work

I, Toddler Houdini, mastered the Safety 1st child locks in the kitchen. I could open them faster than Mom. Then the most horrible thing happened. Dad upgraded the locks to another kind. I pull on them and cry because I don't know how to open them yet. 

On Friday, we met up with Elianna and her Mom at the Natural Science Museum. I loved it. I love snakes and they have a lot of them there. We went to story time and we got to see a real corn snake, just like the one we met in Saginaw. They also had a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach which we all touched. Elianna and I also played with Bess Beetles. Mom cannot believe all the stuff she is touching now that I'm around. I'm really expanding her horizons.

After the museum we went to Elianna's house and we saw the coolest thing. The recycle truck stopped right in front of her house. Not only did they pick up the recycling, but they ran the compactor too. It was so awesome.

On Sunday I tried bowling for the first time. I must be a natural because my score was 145. Dad helped me lift the ball onto the ramp. I did the pushing. The coolest thing was watching the ball come back!

Feeling Corny

On Saturday, Mommy and Trent took a Day of the Dead art class. They learned about the holiday and got to decorate their own skulls.

On Sunday we went to our first dog birthday. Bella across the street turned 4, so she had a park doggie playdate. Lucky her- we haven't done anything for Betty turning one yet.

We also went to our first pumpkin patch of the season. 


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!


Halloween 2017

This week Alden turned seven. We went to dinner with Grandma and Grandpa for an Outback dinner. This was the birthday of Nerf.

We had a great, active Halloween weekend.
