Cam & Kenna!

Back in March, (I know, still playing catch-up) My brother Cameron and his cute wife McKenna came to visit us! We always love seeing those two. While they were here we went to Shoshone Falls. The canyon was absolutely stunning, the waterfalls were pretty and they had the cutest little park that Abbi just loved playing at. 

I'm not sure why she was so grouchy, but unless she had "kitty" with her at all times, she wasn't happy with anyone! So, Kitty went with her EVERYWHERE that day. Abbi and Kitty especially enjoyed playing on the swings with Aunt Kenna and going down the slide! 

After the park we did a little shopping. It's just about impossible for me to go into Twin Falls and NOT stop at Target. (Curse you, you beautiful store!) So we went to Target and also to the DI. We found some good treasures. Cameron saw a practically brand new game of Scategories for only a couple bucks. Don't you love when that happens? So of course, when we were done shopping we went home to play Scategories. 

For dinner, we went to this pizza parlor here in Kimberly. From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but we had heard good things about it, so we went for it! It was the best pizza I'd ever had! SOO Delicious! It was small, and the people were so kind and personable. We so enjoyed it! 

We had so much fun with Aunt Kenna and Uncle Cam! Come back soon guys!

Kansas Trip {Part Three}

Okay, you guys, let's get real! This Kansas Trip was a whole month ago! With my "pregnancy brain" I can't even remember what I had for dinner last night, so I'm not about to try and remember every specific detail about our fun trip to the Kansas City Zoo. 

I can tell you a few things though.. So here they are:

+It was like 75 degrees and sunny on the day we decided to go to the zoo and it felt like summer! (Let's be honest, living in Idaho that's the closest I've been to summer since August.)
+Both babies had a blast! I don't think either had much of a morning nap, and they were still happy! 
+Speaking of no naps, Abbi gave up and fell asleep in her stroller half way through our day and she was OUT! Loud sounds, the sun in her eyes, stinky animals, nothing could wake her up! We gave her about 20 minutes to sleep and then I took her out of her stroller and woke her up. Let's just say I wasn't exactly her 'best friend' after that...
+ Hailey loved the penguins and Abbi loved the Lemurs. I think she stayed at their exhibit for 10 minutes just watching as each one leaped from branch to branch. {And can I just say I had this theme song running through my head the whole time. Drew had never heard of this show,  please tell me I'm not the only one?!?!} 
+We had an absolute blast! I wish we lived closer to Lindsay and Hailey, we could make this a daily thing and I don't think any of us would/could get sick of it. 

Thanks for the fun time Grandma, Lindsay and Hailey! We can't wait until the next time we can get together! 

Kansas Trip {Part Two}

We didn't waste any time that next morning! 

We woke up bright and early! {thank you time difference and a stubborn toddler who doesn't know how to "sleep in"} After breakfast, we all got ready and headed out for an afternoon of fun! First stop was Panera Bread. I feel as though I missed out! Pregnancy food aversion and nausea were acting up and I didn't really get to enjoy my lunch! 

Next time, Panera, next time. 

After lunch, we ventured into an older part of Kansas City to the children's museum. The neighborhood seemed a little bit questionable, but the museum itself was so fun! Obviously, well used and so so enjoyable

The museum had a bunch of different rooms all with different themes! It was so fun! As we started to leave each room, Abbi would have an absolute meltdown. She was having so much fun and didn't want to leave. Then, we would show her the next room and her face would light up! It didn't matter what was in the room, it was the coolest thing she had ever seen! 

One of her favorite rooms was the little shop they had full of recycled materials. They were selling things like toilet paper rolls, cardboard, old pieces of metal, aluminum cans, etc for dirt cheap. Essentially, it was a room full of garbage for sale and Abbi couldn't get enough. I think she is going to be a creative little booger when she gets older and she she didn't get that from me. Trust me. 

Can I just take a moment to say something and get it off my chest?! I have made an executive decision {meaning, Drew has no say in the matter whatsoever}
Starting yesterday, any extra money we have is going into a "project adopt an African baby fund!" 
Seriously, at the children's museum they had a room full of dolls. Abbi quickly chose the cutest little baby doll and wouldn't put it down. I died and couldn't even handle how cute it was! I feel the same way Abbi. One day, one day. 

We had such a fun time at the children's museum! If only Kansas was 30 minutes away instead of 16 hours, we would be there every single day!
