I'm A Fun Mom

I try to keep telling myself that when there are days my kids don't get out of their jammies until noon and I am too busy doing household stuff than playing with them.

Yesterday Nedra invited us to "Touch a Truck". They had every truck, vehicle... you could think of. Unfortunately there were big lines to see each one so we only could get in a handful of them. But I think the kids really enjoyed it. I am always in for a free fun way of entertaining the kiddos.

Because it was too cold to go to the splash park for playgroup, I had already promised the kids that I would take them to the Children's Museum. So after the trucks we stopped for lunch and then went to the Museum. Always a hit!!

I love the idea of "Touch a Truck". I am going to see if there is anything like that around here...if not, I might just have to organize it myself. Too fun. My kids would go crazy for that.You packed more than you should have into one day though. Did you survive? You are a fun mom for certain. Was it really too cold for a splash park? In the middle of the summer? We could have fried eggs on the sidewalk around here. Have a good day.

Last year Greg and Avalyn's school, put on something similar to Touch a Truck. The kids loved it! You are a fun mom! And we have been doing the jammies 'til noon thing too! It's summer, we're allowed right? :)

Whatever... about the pajamas. That's what summer is all about. In a few weeks, you will WISH you could keep them in jammies until noon.
