Always an Edventure

I feel like anytime I go anywhere with Tallon these days- it turns into an adventure of some sorts- watching him explore his surroundings, climbing whatever he can find to possibly climb and running. Today- we went with a group of mom's and their kiddo's to Edventure Children's Museum in Columbia and it was... an ADVENTURE. 6 kiddos under 3 and 5 adults- We all had a blast and I decided to take the day off from trying to capture Tallon's expressions of curiosity and fun on camera and simply enjoy playing and interacting with him!! Jennie , Julie, and Courtney both got some great shots so head over to their blogs to see pictures from our day!! Tallon definitely enjoyed the museum this time alot more than he did when we took him when he turned 1. He loved the exhibit on brushing your teeth and we had to go back to the dentist chair several times so he could practice brushing the fake guy's teeth with the dentist tools!! They have lots of cool exhibits that are hands friendly for toddlers so if you are near Columbia- I encourage you to go! We also played in a life-sized fire truck, built lots of towers, played with bubbles, listened to our heart beats, played hopscotch while listening to the notes of the piano, went across a cool swaying bridge and lots more! It was definitely an exciting and exhausting morning. After lunch and a quick stop at Target and Michaels, we headed home- Tallon napped in the car and for a little while on the couch while I studied some for my ACLS class.

Reeves is out of town tonight for work and Courtney and Olivia (Jeremy is out of town with Reeves) invited us to hang out at the pool this evening with pizza so from 5:30 until 8:00- we went down the slide,ate, laughed, swam, went down the slide, swam, went down the slide again (notice a theme here) and hung out! Thanks for inviting us guys!! The plan worked because both of our kiddos were completely exhausted from their exciting day. Tallon was asleep by 8:30 so i have had a chance to refresh my memory for my class tom AM!! Now I am heading to bed- exhausted but Thankful for the time I got to spend with my precious son and friends today!

As we were packing up the kiddos to head home after swimming- Tallon still had some yogurt left so I started to push up on the yogurt to help it get to the top so Tal could take a bite- OOPS! With all this heat- the yougurt had gotten very liquidy and squirted out ALL OVER Tallon- soo sorry sweet boy!

Those pics weren't up when I left my first comment! Poor kid! Clara Beth just saw them and said "ha (hair)...pwee (pretty)". I guess she thinks it's a pretty cool fashion statement!
