Bethany got invited to a birthday party at the Magic House. It was her first time there. She had an absolute blast. The Magic House surely lives up to their name!
She missed her friends from the sitter's and she couldn't get over the fact she was hanging out with her friends again!
The party was a lot of fun. They got to decorate Princess Crowns.
They each made lil' magic wands. If you are in close proximity to the wand, you better watch out or you might be turned in to a cat, dog or even a Bethany.
To top off the party, they got to decorate their own cupcakes! Oddly, only a couple kids ate the cupcakes after they were all done. I guess they didn't want to disrupt all their hard work!
After the party was over, the kids explored the Magic House. I am telling you what, we were their in the house for about 90 minutes and we didn't even explore half of the exhibits. The lil' girls were in love with the Water Room. Seriously, if I installed a large water table in our house, she'd never go bored!
I had to pry a crying Bethany out when the Magic House closed. We are for sure going to have to go back...soon!

Our spring break is coming to a close. We had a great time just relaxing at home and hanging out with the kids. They are so much fun! Yesterday we all went to the zoo.
They both had an absolute blast! Owen hardly looked at the animals. He was more fixated on the people all around him than any of the animals.
Bethany wanted to see the Lions and Tigers so badly. Then as soon as we got there, she became pretty frightened and clingy. Crazy Girl!
Not all the animals were caged up. We saw a bunch of birds on the run. The boys decided to chase after them to get a closer look!
Want some tips to help pass the time. Well, look no further. Owen has all the entertainment advice you'll ever need.
Just look around the house for any light peeping in through the slots of the blinds. Then try to grab the light beams. Come on and try it!

Owen is a great kiddo. Still pretty mellow! He loves attention (like who doesn't). He enjoys table food immensely and will eat anything so far. He can really pack away the food. He has figured out to stand, cruise, crawl and climb the stairs. He hasn't really considered the possibility of trying to walk yet...after all, crawling is so much faster.

What a glorious day! The weather is so perfect that is it is all but impossible to stay inside. Bethany enjoys every second we spend outside playing. To make the time even more enjoyable, one of the neighbors gave Bethany a lil' scooter....as two of their kids out-grow it and the third already has another one.
Well, SHE LOVES IT!!!!!
Look at that smile. She can't get enough of the "skateboard."
She doesn't do too bad on it. She's figuring out the whole scooting on the scooter thing and isn't just standing on it idly.
Look at her go....although...I question what she can look at with the ill-fitting helmet! :o)
