We went to LaCrosse to "go to Elmo's house" as Pete put it! Julia and Shana also went with us and it was such a fun date night with our friends and just the big kids.
There was a play area in the basement of the LaCrosse Center to check out and I think that if we had gotten there earlier some of the actual characters from the show also would have been down there.

We went camping this past weekend at Willow River State Park which was a little ways outside of Hudson. It was perfect camping weather- cool nights and warm sunny days! The only downside of the camp ground was that the beach was really scummy- especially for kids that drink lake water like it is chocolate milk!! But we played and played and played in teh dirt at the site, went on some nice hikes and also the park had nice playgrounds all over.

We left Pete at my parent's house for two days on his own last week- here's what I got out of what he did... trains, bikes, swimming, trains, snacks, cousins, trains, trains. You get the picture! He had so much fun and LOVED the idea that he was a big kid getting to stay on his own at his "happy place." After looking at a few pictures of what he did, can you blame him?
I don't really love doing crafts with the kids and it usually ends up being more stressful than enjoyable. Peter was gone last week at his grandpa's house so Emi and I decided to do a little project. I used to do this with Peter once in a while too- it must be the two kids doing it together that makes it stressful?
