Tot Week - On the Move

Tot Week was quite the adventure for us this week! We were a little busier than normal and were able to visit a lot of family and do new things.

Mini Diva's favorite activity was her first bowling trip. To say she loved it is an understatement. Most of the time Mini Dude took a nap, but he did join the little diva in pushing one of the balls. Sharing is always fun, right?

She picked out her own ball - she specifically wanted the orange one. She even insisted on carrying it herself after her dad helped her a few times. She did pretty well with all 8 lbs of it, but her dad was right there to help if it slipped.

Lining up the ramp and pushing the ball off was pretty fun, too. She was able to balance it on top just right. She would count to three and then push.

And then she would wait and watch how many were knocked down. I love her little bowling shoes. I didn't know they had them that small!

We also spent a day with cousins on Friday. I watched this little guy while his mom went to an appointment. It was good for Mini Diva to play with another littler person. We worked on sharing and using our nice voices.

The toddlers liked putting round pegs into their little cars. Balls were also a big hit.

And this little guy absolutely loved his grandma's swing!

That night we went to a fun local restaurant, The Mayan, where my dad works as a manager. The kiddos loved watching the divers and fire dancers. I wish I had my camera. We even got splashed! My dad brought the divers down for Mini Diva to meet. Her favorite part of the evening was when my dad brought out a chocolate and ice cream desert that had a large sparkler in it. She exclaimed, "Birthday cake for me?"

On Saturday we helped my brother and his family move. The mini diva had a hard day, but it was still fun to play with cousins in their new house. That night we went to her cousin's dance recital. Mini Diva LOVED it! She and her cousin danced on the stairs in the back. It was almost more fun to watch than the show. They also got in some quality time with their great grandparents.

At home, we had lots of fun with imaginative play. Mini Diva used her chairs and the water bottles to make a train for herself and her babies.

She also had a lot of fun of her Melissa and Doug foot set. She made many yummy foods for me to eat.

  2. Wow, what a busy week! I have never seen one of those bowling contraptions before, but what a GREAT idea for little ones!

  3. Looks like you had a lot of fun! It's been so long since we've been bowling--I think B would love it. Thanks for sharing!
