Lots of Fun Goodies!!!

This is kind of another catch up post for me! I feel like we have had a lot going on in the past few weeks, and I haven't been able touch on everything (I've also been way too tired!). Over Labor Day Weekend we decided to have a day trip to Bush Gardens. Luckily our good friends Cali and Rick had some free passes that they lent to us for the day. We had a BLAST to say the least!! They just opened a new section called "Elmo's Forest" that is loaded with lots of fun stuff for little ones. Check out the pictures!!

Where else can your two year old do THIS??


Or fly one of THESE??


And scare Mommy half to DEATH by riding this THING??


Yes, that is Bradley in the second row squealing with glee...


Of course there were the cute ladybugs that were right up my ally...


He is just growing up so fast...look at him, not even scared!!


We really had the most amazing time as a family, and Bradley was a trooper. He rode rides for most of the day, and then we told him he would need a nap if he wanted to stay. We pushed him around in the stroller, and he slept for over an hour while Chris and I rested in the shade. He must of thought he was dreaming when he woke up and we were still in Bush Gardens. What fun memories, that I know I will treasure!


We are headed off this weekend for Uncle Shawn's wedding! I wanted to get Bradley a fun little toy for the wedding/reception/car ride that was educational. I picked up the Leap Frog Tag Jr. today with a bunch of books. I still need to download the books onto the system, but we played with the example at the store. It looks really fun and easy to use. I will let you know what we think of it!


I also got him "Puppy Pals Bingo" by the makers of Cranium. I LOVE all of their games for adults and kids. I already have "Hullabaloo" which is AWESOME!! I would highly recommend it for children from 2-school age. My first graders would always play it when we had a rainy recess day, and now Bradley loves it. I thought I would give this Bingo game a try. We already played it three times before his nap. He loved it! It actually comes with two little doggies, but one is up in bed with him right now. All you do is pull a card and match the color, shape, or pattern to the dog houses on your board. Three in a row wins! It was perfect for this almost two year old, and it got us talking about more than just colors. I loved all of the different patterns and Bradley was beginning to learn them by the last game.

Here is a better picture of the game board:


In pregnancy news....have you tried this little piece of yumminess?????

cinnamon crunch bagel

Ok, maybe it is just my pregnancy brain, BUT this bagel is AWESOME!! I was at Panera for lunch today, and a few people in front of me ordered this Cinnamon Crunch Bagel. I was curious so I ordered one too! It is like eating a yummy cinnamon roll as a bagel. YUMM!! I almost went back to the counter to buy some to take home, but I restrained myself! LOL!!
