Discovery Place

This afternoon my mom and I took Maddy to Discovery Place. It's one of those hands-on kids science museums. I've always loved those... Still do, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!! :) Since Maddy had to ride home in just her Pull-Up, I'd say the adventure was a SUCCESS!! HaHaHa! :) There is a special room just for people Maddy's size, and she LOVED it!! The room had a water table (pictures to follow) which Maddy couldn't get enough of... Hence, riding home almost naked!! After we were in the kids room, we went upstairs to explore the other exhibits. My mom made Maddy a princess crown out of aluminum foil, which Maddy seemed to enjoy. The whole time we were upstairs, however, Maddy kept asking to go back to the water table, so once we saw what was upstairs, we headed back down... to the water table. I really think that if we'd done nothing other than the water table, Maddy would have been perfectly satisfied. LoL. Here are some pictures of our big day!!

Our first time at the water table:

A GIANT Light Brite!!!

Making music with pots and pans:

Looking like she's going to beat that kid up... Don't worry... She was sharing:

Even Mom got in on the fun...

Heading in for round 2 at the water table...

Check out the extreme concentration (tongue sticking out):

Upstairs checking ourselves out on the "TV":

Maddy in front of the Eiffel Tower made out of blocks:

Heading into a round room with lights on the floor that made music when you stepped on them... There was a fog machine in the doorway that Maddy really liked:

See? She RAN in and out of the room to go through the fog (over and over and over and well, you get the point):

Maddy's foil crown. Isn't she lovely? Sing it!! :)

In other news, Chris and April came to visit this weekend. Here are Maddy and Uncle Chris taking a little snooze...

Last, but not least, Bryan and I have some exciting news. Those of you who are on Facebook probably already know it, but we bought a 2009 Pontiac G8!!! Bryan has been wanting one for quite some time. We found one in Charlotte, so my dad and I went to take a look at it yesterday, and made an offer. We'll head back in the morning to fill out the paperwork and get the keys. I hope that Bryan enjoys his Father's Day gift... ;) We're going to get it to Atlanta (haven't decided how it'll get there yet), so that after Grandpop's birthday party, we can drive it home. After I pick it up tomorrow, I'll try to post some pictures...

Talk to everyone soon!!

Love you guys!! :)

Maddy's Ready...

...For her daddy to take her camping!! :)

Maddy's Grandpop got a new tent today, and Maddy gave it a whirl. She really had fun climbing in and out of it! See for yourself:

She even figured out what she is supposed to do in a tent. Don't be fooled, though, she stood strong all day by not taking a nap, and didn't give in for the tent either!! :)

She even convinced me to get in with her long enough to take a picture. No one get any ideas... I am still not interested in camping!! : )

I guess that's about it for now. We've all been exhausted around here lately! Maddy woke up early this morning, so she and I took a nap on the couch this morning, but as far as an afternoon nap goes, Maddy hasn't been too interested in that lately.

We are working on potty training a little bit. Yesterday, Maddy did a very good job with it, but as she got more tired in the afternoon, she lost interest and her successes. Today, Maddy woke up seeming as though she wasn't feeling well, so today was not a good potty day. I think her 2 year molars are FINALLY trying to break through. They've been pretending that they were ready to come through for about 5 months. The drooling started this morning, so hopefully, they'll break through soon, and we can put teething past us until her 5 year molars... Or until the new baby starts teething. LoL.

I hope everyone is having a good week. We're looking forward to a visit from Chris and April next weekend for Chris's birthday!!

Love you guys!! :)

So, here's a little background before I post my latest video of Maddy...

I frequently use my hands-free device while I'm talking on my cell phone. Also, often while I'm on the phone, I'm holding Maddy (as she's a pretty big Momma's girl these days). I tend to hold her on my right side. This also happens to be the ear that I put my hands-free in. Every once in awhile (ok, so pretty frequently), Maddy will pull my hands-free out of my ear since she gets a reaction out of me. What is the reaction? Well, I yell, "HOLD ON HOLD ON" to the person on the other end hoping he/she will not hang up and give me a chance to get my hands-free back. LoL.

Now, on to the video... Maddy was "talking" on her play cell phone today and kept yelling something. It took me a little time, but I finally realized that she was yelling "HOLD ON HOLD ON"!! LoL. She's been cracking me up BIG TIME lately!! I love this kid!!

I hope that gave you a little chuckle for your day!

Love you guys!! :)
