More Summer VBS and Mommy-Colton Date...

Today Summer had her second day of VBS and is loving it so much!  From what she talks about, learning the songs and actions are one of her favorite parts.  Here is a video of her singing one of the songs she learned...

The kids do a program after the last day (Friday) and I am excited to go watch her sing :)

When I was looking for fun things for Colton and I to do together, I found that Thomas the Tank Engine and Percy were at the Minnesota Children's Museum for a special exhibit!  If you know Colton at all or follow our blog, you know that this would be beyond exciting for him ;).  Tickets seemed a bit pricey to go for the two hour window that we would be able to go during Summer's VBS, so I looked into the yearly membership and was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was only $99 for our whole family for the year!  I know we will definitely get great use out of this, especially during the long Minnesota winters, so we decided to go that route.  My favorite part about a membership is that you don't have to feel bad only going for a few hours in between naps (and not covering the whole museum) because you can always go back!  Anyway, it was a total hit, and the perfect option for our Mommy-Colton date today.  Here are a few pics...


We spent a large chunk of time at this giant train table

Hi Percy!

Seriously, the biggest train table I have ever seen!

While the majority of our time was spent in the Thomas exhibit ;), we checked out a few others...another favorite was the water table and bubble station :)
Tomorrow Colton and I will be at VBS with Summer helping out in the nursery/childcare area.  On Thursday we have swimming lessons.  We will check back into the blog world on Friday and hopefully post some video of Summer's first VBS program :).

Aw, I love Summer's enthusiasm for her VBS song!! And, I can't think of a more perfect place to take Colton than that Thomas the Tank exhibit. Oh, my, that was little boy heaven for sure! Good job, Kel. Glad you'll be able to go as much as you want for a whole year!

Just had to watch Summer's song again. Cute hip action. I love her zest for life! I also love Colty's "my turn" at the end. ;)
