Today we toured Schonbrunn Palace and Grayson went to his first zoo. We began with a beautiful day and ended in the zoo with pouring rain.
We went to an amusement park today and Kristi and Adam were brave enough to ride the swings that go up to the top of this tower, over 100 yards tall.
We also went to Family Fun Center where the highlight for the boys was this giant ball pit. They also had inflatables, slides, and riding toys. I wish they had a place this good in the US
There are so many other things I need to be doing right now, but instead I sit here, with freshly painted toes, eating a bowl of cereal, and watching Top Chef, while the rest of my crew are in bed. These moments are few and far between, so I take advantage when I can.
Today we went to Clifford, the Big Red Dog exhibit and to play in the fountains at Crown Center. Grayson was adventurous and would walk to the middle while the fountains were down, and then all of a sudden they would pop back up, and he would walk out as fast as he could.
After 3 years, I decided that it was time to rearrange the living room. I think I got tired of all the toys out and decided we needed more organization, which meant we would have to rearrange. Not sure yet if this layout will work, but we'll leave it for a few days and see if it grows on us.
Grayson has discovored the fun rides in stores that are meant to attract the kids attention and slow parents down when they are in a hurry. He spotted this one as soon as we walked in and kept pointing and fussing until Daddy pulled out a quarter and let him ride.
Grayson really wanted to help Daddy get the corn ready to grill. It's one of his new favorite foodsWe spent the evening on the lake. Grayson really enjoyed being out there last year, but wasn't quite sure this year since he had to wear a life jacket the whole time
Getting in the water with Uncle Ben made him a little nervous, but when Mommy joined him, all was well
