Tot School - Summer Fun

Aaron is 24 months old!

We had a fun tot school week this week...we enjoyed playing with all the new goodies that Aaron got for his birthday!

Aaron's 2nd birthday was on Monday. We really didn't do much on Monday because we were all worn out from our busy weekend. The boys did enjoy watching the movie that Granny got Aaron for his birthday and they played with the new cars that Aaron got.

On Tuesday we enjoyed playing with play-doh and playing the bowling game that Aaron got.

The play-doh set had stuff to make play-doh monsters!

The foam bowling set was a lot of fun for the boys...even though Aaron doesn't quite get how to throw the ball yet...but it will be fun watching him learn. I am sure he will get better and better at it.

I quickly saw how I could make it into a learning activity. I put numbers on the top of the pins and when the boys set up the pins they have to match the numbers to the ones on the mat.

We also went swimming on Tuesday...poor Aaron is cutting his 24 month molars and they were really bothering him that day :-(

When we went outside to get in the pool this is what we found in our pool toy box. A bird decided to make a nest in one of the sand pails.

After not being able to go to the library for 2 weeks in a row the boys were really excited when they found out that we would be going this week. The puppy backpack "leash" that I got for Aaron was a lifesaver!!! And the good thing was he didn't seem to mind wearing it.

We went to Target to pick up a few things and it was about lunch time and the boys were getting hungry so we thought that we could just eat there! We discovered the $2 kids meal - a hot dog and a small icee! The boys were in heaven!! We will have to remember this...it was a lot easier just having one place to be at to eat and get our items we needed :-) (Mommy is finding out that 3 kids can be quite a handful on outings!)

I found a new book for Aaron this week. He really enjoyed it and I am hoping that he will continue to get a lot of enjoyment from it. There are a lot of learning opportunities (through conversation) in this book. I didn't get any pictures of him reading it b/c he was in my lap...but I did find a pic of it online to share! It really is a neat little book.

Aaron had his 2 year check up on Friday! He is a big healthy boy!!!

On Friday night we took the kids to Bass Pro Shop. They had a lot of fun!

Aaron loved looking at the BIG catfish!

Had to throw this one in of Alyssa smiling at her daddy!!

We spent the day Saturday at my in-laws playing in their pool!

Papa cut Aaron's hair!!

  1. What a great week. Happy Birthday to your little man. I love the bowling pin number matching game. Thanks for sharing!

  2. How neat about the bird nest! That's amazing! I love the idea about matching up the numbers too. I need to come up with something like that for my little guy - he is just not interested in numbers, but loves letters. Go figure...
    Thanks for sharing - great pictures!

  3. Happy Birthday to your little guy! We have a backpack "leash" like that except it is a monkey. It is definitely a lifesaver and Mikey Bear loves it. We tell him that the monkey is hugging him. I will have to get that book for him. He loves Elmo.
    Thanks for sharing!
