A Day Out With Jordy

Yesterday Jordan got to spend the day with me. It was fun to hop in the car just the two of us and go off on our little daily adventure. We headed to meet our friends Kathy and Maddy. Jordan and I got to the restaurant a little early so we took a walk over to the train station and were there just in time to see a train go past. It kind of freaked Jordan out but we were still excited to see the train and to wave as it zoomed past. We met our friends for breakfast and then were ready to paint at Color Me Mine. After we went to see Santa this year and Jordan was upset that he didn't get the train he asked for and had to wait until Christmas, I was prepared and made sure to tell him we would paint our dinosaur and then pick them up later. Luckily, he had no problem with that. Phew.

Jordan looked at all the cool things to paint and chose a really cool T-Rex. Then he picked out his colors. Of course, black had to be one of his colors. He had fun painting the dinosaur...and the table!
Here's me with my munchkin...please ignore that I forgot to put makeup on...Jordan just looks so cute I had to post this picture despite my horribleness.
The kiddos having fun!
I also sponged up a tile so Jordan could put his handprint on it. (I helped Chad out here...this is my yearly Mother's Day present...but it does mean he can now get me something else...wink, wink).
Jordan playing with all the stamps that were up on a magnetic wall. Super smart...
Next up, we went to the Kohl's Children's Museum. I love to see the chicks and Jordan got to see them, too. (Although it did have me thinking in light of all the reading I've been doing about how animals like cows, chickens, and pigs are treated...)
After that we were super pooped and ready to head home. Jordan fell asleep in the car after a few minutes but woke up when we got home. We watched Alice in Wonderland until Dad came home and the boys played outside. It was such a fun day!

A great way to spend the day. For whatever reason, I cannot plan outings like this with H. I dream of them but their just not his cup of tea. I really like the handprint tile--beautiful and super special! Love seeing you guys have fun!

This looks like the perfect spring break day for both of you. Jordan is so cute, I love him so much. I can't wait to see him again and I have to think of something fun to do with him and papa next week.
