Today Titi Molly and Mommy brought us to our first gymnastics class. We were a little hesitant at first, but Titi Molly and Mommy made us try everything, and boy are we glad they did. We had so much fun! My favorite part was the giant trampoline, and Lily loved doing somersaults all over the place. Mommy didn't get any pictures while we were there because we didn't stop moving, but hopefully she'll get some next time while we're jumping around in our world!

The Sun Does Shine in Illinois

It's been raining a lot since we arrived in Illinois, but today the sun peeked out just long enough for us to enjoy a yummy popsicle.

A Day In Our World With Pop Pop and Gigi

We've been staying busy with Pop Pop and Gigi. If you're wondering who Gigi is, it's Grandma Gladys. We just can't seem to say Grandma Gladys for whatever reason so the ladies at Grandma's work came up with a new name for us to call her. Pop Pop and Gigi bought us cool cozy coupes, and we love them. They also got us some miniature lawn chairs so we can kick back and relax with the family. After a long day, we enjoy soaking in Gigi's tub. We have our own bathtub upstairs, but Gigi's is so much better. It is like our own spa. It has jets, and there's even a TV above the tub so we can enjoy a few Disney shows while we refresh. Gigi got us new towels too so we're set. Things couldn't be much better in our world.

Round 3 - Illinois

Today our journeys brought us to Illinois for round 3 of 4 of our move to Wisconsin. We left Grandma Jackie's early Thursday morning, stopped off to do a little shopping in Pleasant Prairie, and then arrived at Grandma Gladys' and Pop Pop's house in the mid afternoon. Mom's car was packed tight with all of our stuff. Good thing mom and dad left enough room for us.

There Is A Heaven

I decided today that if heaven were a toy store it would only have Thomas the Train. I sort of have a little, okay let's say huge, infatuation with Thomas. He's only the coolest toy I have seen in my entire life. I realize that I'm only 19 months old, but trust me, I've seen a lot of toys in my time. Since Grandma wasn't willing to give up her Thomas set, she decided to take me shopping to start my own set. I emphasize the word start here too, because after seeing everything available I have to again remind everyone that I do still have a birthday and Christmas coming up this year. My world is great with Thomas the Train! Thank you Grandma!

Ring Around The Rosie

Mommy taught us how to play Ring Around the Rosie today. We didn't always fall at the right time, but Mom didn't seem to mind. We kind of liked pushing her over anyway when she'd try to help us up.

Keeping Grandma Busy

Mommy warned Grandma Jackie that we don't sit still and that we get into everything. We aren't sure if she believed her or not, but we proved Mommy was right, and we showed Grandma everything we could get into while staying at her house. We have acquired quite a few toys from our cousin, Elizabeth, while here, which I'm sure Daddy will be thrilled about. We've put all of them to good use though so that's all that matters. My favorite thing at Grandma's house is her Thomas the Train set. All I have to say is, my birthday is coming up in October everyone! Lily loves the potty chairs. Not only do we have Grandma's, but Mommy ordered both of us one so we now have three. That's a lot of potties if you ask me, but Lily is loving potty time in our world!

Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary

We got to feed the ducks today at the Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay. Mommy told us that she used to go here as a kid, but it was a lot different back then. We had lots of fun sitting on the rocks and it was another beautiful day to be outside in our world.

Potty Time

Lily here. I have big news...I went potty on the big girl potty today! I've been telling Mommy for a few months now whenever I'm dirty, and I tend to do my business in private (usually behind a chair or in another room). Well today, Mom and Grandma decided it was time to give the potty chair a try. Grandma even cleaned up the antique potty chair that Mommy, Uncle Robb, and Uncle Steve used so it was a big occasion. I felt like a princess on my little throne and of course I ate up all of the attention. Ryan didn't seem to care much, but I guess that just means more potty chair time for me!
