Up Party

I recorded the movie Up a few days ago and then came across this blog that had a bunch of ideas to go along with the movie. So I gathered my supplies and printed out some stuff and we had an UP Party.

I printed Adventure Books for each of the kids, plus some other activities, like mazes and puppets. I found nets at the dollar store so we could go Snipe Hunting. For lunch we had hot dogs and grape soda, plus chocolate bars for snack.

I couldn't find grape soda in bottles with bottle caps, but I did find this craft kit to make bottle cap jewelry.

I hung up some balloon decorations. I also got some tennis ball dog toys for the kids to play with Wrangler.

Of course, we had to pick up a couple of balloons for the kids.

Logan didn't quite get the idea of the party just being us. He kept asking when the other people were coming.

Park Play 2012

Today we went to the park after nap. It was our first trip of the year and I'm sure we will be going lots more. Both kids love the playground. We stopped at Sonic first and got happy hour drinks with our lucky Chinese money. This was a hit since both love bouncing and jumping.

Sophie must be going through a phase of some sort. Normally she loves to swing but when I put her in the swing she got upset. Apparently the swing was too high. (This isn't a new park, we've been before.) Then when we moved to the climbing thingy she wouldn't go down the slide. She did let me take her picture but only with Logan next to her. The crazy part is she would climb up any ladder-type thing there, getting up several feet.

Unfortunately, it was cooler than it first seemed so we only stayed about half an hour before heading home.
