The Bounce Zone

On Saturday, we went to a birthday party for Alan's co-worker's son's 2nd birthday. It was held at The Bounce Zone. When we arrived Caroline took a few minutes to check the place out and then Alan put her on one of the bouncy areas. She was not so sure about bouncing so Alan took her to a small slide. The first time she went down he helped her and I caught her at the bottom. It was maybe 6 feet long. She loved it and said, "Again!" We did this about 6 times, each time she got a little braver and didn't need our help.
Next, she wanted to go on the largest slide there. I told Alan that he HAD to go down with her and even then I was still scared for her. Well, they got to the top and apparently she pushed away from him. I hear from Alan, "We're coming down alone Momma!" My heart stopped. I was chatting with one of Alan's co-workers and we both stared. My little peanut came down very fast with the biggest grin on her face. She immediately popped up and said, "Again!"
She raced everywhere. She couldn't get on the next slide fast enough. A few days later and she is still saying, "Slide. Jump. High."
I think a visit to the Bounce Zone will be in our future!

I love this outfit! :) She does too since the hood has a kitty face on it

Way up high with Daddy

This was actually not the first landing. She was getting sloppy since she immediately bounced back up to go AGAIN! :P

Off to the next slide

Look how tiny she is compared to the other kids!


One happy kid :)

Fast asleep! She went right out once we were in the car and was asleep as Alan carried her into the house. She has never stayed asleep when you take her out of the car seat, ever!

The stylings of Caroline

Caroline is set in her ways when it comes to what she wants to wear. If she wants to wear boots, she's wearing boots! Hats and hair bows are necessaties. Certain days she HAS to wear blue, other days it must be something soft and white. Here are just a few funny pictures from the past week :)

She couldn't decide so she wore both!

Mini Mommy :)

Apparently, no heat setting is high enough in the mornings :)

Nothing silly here, just showing off my skinny little monkey :)

A "Sweet" Valentines Day

We had a very nice Valentines Day at our house. Over the weekend we made Chocolate Cherry Bark, Cheddar Heart Crackers, and yesterday Caroline and I were treated with all sorts of goodies! We ended the evening with a fun family dinner out where Caroline had all sorts of fun playing Peek-a-boo with a little boy at the table next to us! It was a very nice "love" day indeed!

Caroline had fun opening cards

Mommy got flowers and a new phone

and Caroline got her first lollipop from Aunt Barbara & Uncle Richard!

Tastes good!

Wanna share?

What's the big idea? Why are you taking it away? :)

Baking with Caroline

Last night was the first time Caroline and I actually baked together. We made Cheddar Hearts, our version of Goldfish. I figured this was a good, first time activity since she could eat the raw dough and wouldn't get sick. Plus, there is no sugar so we don't have to worry about it being bad for her! She loved rolling the dough and using the cookie cutter. She was very good at sharing with Mama too! After she cut her hearts, she'd put them back onto her rolled dough. She's not one for messes :) She stuck with it for a while. I finished mine up and while they were baking I started in on Nana's birthday cake. Besides needing the measuring spoons, she didn't waiver from her dough and cookie cutters! It was definitely a success and I see us doing a lot of cooking in the kitchen together :)
