Dad Cake

I had the last day of my 1st soccer class on Saturday. The series was at 8:30 a.m. which is just too early. I'm going to be starting a basketball class this week, and it is later in the day.

Daddy turned 40 last week. We made him a 3 layer cake. In the layers we put marshmallows and cherries.

Can You Dig It?

We had a big weekend. Friday after school we drove to a hotel in Virginia. Then the next day we drove for a LONG time. The traffic in Virginia and Maryland was bad.

We arrived to the Philadelphia area. Daddy and Alden went to a Barenaked Ladies concert (Alden's 3rd concert, but his first Barenaked one). While we were there, Mommy and I went to the King of Prussia mall, the second largest in the US. I got a big shark stuffed animal. I named him Sharkie.

Yesterday morning we went to a place called Diggerland. It is a construction themepark. Alden and Mom drove a backhoe loader.

Then we got in the car and drove for a LONG time.

Birthday Boys

On Saturday we went to a science day at the museum. We got to pretend to make medicine with some people who work at GSK.

Sunday was Grandpa's 80th birthday. We took him out to eat. We all wore Detroit Tigers or Lions gear. Then we went to Aunt Sue's for cake. Daddy got a cake too because his 40th birthday is later this month.

Signs of Spring

This weekend really felt like spring. We had an egg hunt and I helped Mom plant some flowers around the mailbox. By help, I mean I let her do it all while I played.

Science Fair

Last week was my first science fair. I was going to do it last year, but I was sick. So I recycled my project into this year.

I did my project on super absorbent polymers. They can absorb a crazy amount of water. A tiny bead can become nickel sized. They are used in things like diapers, fake snow, and water bead toys.

Carnival Time

Last Thursday we had a carnival in our classroom. We practiced earning "money" and we got to spend it at the carnival. Mommy came in and ran the photo booth. There was popcorn, cotton candy, games, and raffles.

At the end, someone got to pie Mrs. N in the face!

Dog Party

On Saturday, Mommy and me went to a birthday party for a dog. Betty was invited. We just took her. It was really fun watching the dogs run around.

On Sunday we went to George's birthday party. Alden hurt his leg and then was crabby most of the party. He felt better when we got home.

Brick by Brick

Yesterday Trent had his first soccer class. It was so boring for me to go watch and we had to get up so early.

Later that day we went to a Harley-Davidson dealer's bike rally. Mom's friend Gretchen won 1st place. Then we went to the children's museum and out for fancy desserts.

Today Mom was so proud because I rode my bike to Starbucks. We didn't get anything - it was just to see if I could do it. I also put together a Lego set all-by-myself.

Hot Rock

Mommy got a King Cake this weekend since Mardi Gras is coming. Alden was the lucky one to find the baby in his piece!

Mommy has been hoping and wanting for Alden to get interested in biking, but it just wasn't there. This weekend Daddy got a new bike. While we were at the bike store, Alden and Mommy were  looking at the kid bikes. They both really liked an orange and white one. The guy at the store told them they could take it outside and play with it. The guy gave Alden some tips for gliding on it since it didn't have training wheels. They went out in the parking lot and played with it. I was upset because I wanted to come out and ride also.

Alden ended up asking for the bike, and Mommy was so excited that he was interested in it that she told Daddy they had to get it.

I was so upset because Daddy and Alden got bikes and I didn't. Mommy said it was because the bike I have from cousin Trevor is so nice, and they will get me a bigger bike when I'm older.

Alden practiced…

From My Heart To Yours

I was sick and missed two days of school the week before last. Last week Mommy and Daddy got it. Mommy and Daddy don't have fevers anymore now, but they do have coughs and weird voices.

Sunday was like a spring day. Mommy even wore shorts. We got a large ball and rolled around in it in the backyard. I played with some sling shot rockets too.

Trent had his Valentines party today. My teacher was sick so our party was post-poned.
