Just some quick shots I have taken the last few days! Kennedy and I have been busy as always! Monday we went to a VERY cool place called Paradise Park. She was in heaven and I was impressed! It is like a kid's wonderland!
Here Kennedy had finished her "kitchen session." Each child had their own tray with three cups. One cup of milk, one of ice cream and one of grape juice. The "cook" instructed them how to mix it and make it a grape shake! Then they got to eat it! Do you think she liked it?!
They also have an art room with 3-4 different art projects to choose from! She loved the painting one!
Outdoors were all sorts of fun things! Cool playground equipment, a trike riding track, a dinosaur bone dig in the sand, and Kennedy's favorite - the fishing hole! There were magnetic fish in the water and the kids used poles with magnets at the end to "catch" the fish! Oh- she thought it was THE best!
Another favorite spot was the water room! She loves water and got herself quite wet! Notice we did this AFTER the area where kids paint their own faces! :)
In addition, there was a room full of miniatures: doll houses, barns, people, animals, furniture....FUN! There were make believe areas too: a bank, a house, a pizzeria, a schoolroom, and a grocery store. They made them as real as possible - kids use fake money, working cash registers, items with prices on them, real desks, a bank vault, you name it! Plus the dress up clothes to accompany each room! As if that wasn't enough, there was a play room with a ball pit and slides and a building room with hard hats, bright orange vests and tons of wood to build with! Every few hours a large stuffed bear does story time, too! It was a great day!
Today the weather was PERFECT!!!! So we spent the morning on the deck and had "Art Day!" We played with sidewalk chalk, Play Dough and finally finger paints!!! Below you can see which was the messiest!!!
This afternoon I met with a new friend, Monica, so she could teach me more about photography! She is amazingly sweet and taught me so much!! So expect pictures from our session to follow in later blog entries!!!!
