Our sweet neighbor, Kathie, brought over “tie-dyed” cupcakes for the boys. Yum!
We adore our newest neighbors ~ they are the most thoughtful people!
We found a recipe for Elephant Toothpaste on Science Bob’s website. We didn’t have 6% hydrogen peroxide, but we decided to give it a try with regular 3%. The results aren’t quite as amazing as 6%, but it’s still fun!
Alex says that next time he wants to make Giraffe Toothpaste. Maybe we’ll find some 6% peroxide and try that.
It’s called “toothpaste” because it looks a bit like toothpaste coming out of the tube.
You certainly would NOT use this to brush your teeth!
The boys’ favorite part was playing in the pan full of warm goop
after the “toothpaste” was out of the tube.
We’ve had some fun playdates with Gage & Grace! One day, Cindy & I did a kid swap. I took her kids for the morning while she cleaned her house, and then she took mine for the afternoon while I ran some errands.
At our house, the kids played with playdough and then played Mario Kart on the Wii.
At Cindy’s house, the boys played with monster trucks and a Bob The Builder playset.
The girls played dolls together…and Jensyn even got to “BE” the doll ;)
We also met at the inflatables place for a morning full of fun. There were probably 12 kids in the whole place, including our 5 kids. It was nice!
Grace is in a “make a funny face for the camera” phase ;)
Jensyn ADORED this walking/step toy in the toddler play area.
Since she’s just starting to walk on her own, she had a great time walking up and down, over and over and over…probably for about 30 minutes straight!
Jensyn also had to try out the big inflatables. She actually crawled halfway up one slide before giving up & letting herself slide down. I was impressed!
I took her up the biggest, steepest slide and let her ride down on my lap.
I think I’m too old for this stuff (ha!) but she had a lot of fun!
