Sesame Street Live with the Doyles!

This past Saturday we had a fun activity to attend with my sister, brother-in-law and niece. Through Brian's work, they were able to get discounted tickets to Sesame Street Live!!! It was so much fun for everyone; watching the kids dance to the music before the show, watching them stare straight ahead at the show on stage and the kids just having a fantastic time together. Here are some pics from our afternoon out and about!

Riding the escalator up to get our seats.

Dancing like crazy before the show even started!

Hi Layney...this is so much fun!

Winter time fun...

There's nothing like getting out of the house during the cold winter. I am finding that Brendan does get pretty fussy doing the same old same old around here and frequently needs to get out and play somewhere else. In dire situations, we have visited McDonald's to use their play place...but thankfully our ECFE (early childhood family education) has some "Out and About" get togethers for us to participate in with our friends. This past Tuesday, we headed to Adventure Park in Ham Lake and played straight for 2 hours! This place was awesome and such a fun indoor playground for everyone. There are slides, tunnels, climbers, a zip line thingy, a "toddler" play area, video games and a snack counter all there. We will definately be back (the next time will probably be the 26th). Here are some of the pics that I took...

Getting ready to go down the slide...

Weeeee...I love slides! :D

The climber to get into the tunnels and slides.

In the toddler area...Brendan loved this climber/steering wheel/slide combo.

Brendan's "cheese" face...he got his hands on this balloon and was in heaven!
