On The Move

For the past two weeks I've been getting the babies out of the house right after breakfast for some super fun morning activities.  Our goal is to move from two naps to one nap a day.  This has caused a slight reorganizing of the chaos I lovingly call 'structure'.

I love our new routine.  It gets us out of the house early enough to enjoy all the Mommy/Toddler activities around town.  We're usually home before the oppressive summer heat turns nuclear and I'm getting a good solid 2 - 3 hour afternoon nap out of the twins.

It is a lot of work, but for the most part it's worth it.  So far we've done a Mud Day at the Children's Museum, a few play dates at Fit for Fun, a TON of grocery trips, Yoga/Story time at the library, a free Kindermusik class, a lot of morning beach outings and I joined the local YMCA which has a decent childcare option.

Here's some highlights from our adventures:

Finn at Kindermusik, it was hosted by our local Learning Express toy store.  The class was a bit cramped, but still a lot of fun.

Finn & Belle at Mud Day.  They had a blast!

The Children's Museum had various swimming pools filled with water, mud, sand, corn starch, etc. and a few slip n' slides hooked up.  

Mirabelle loves the beach, as in I'd rather drown than be afraid of a few waves and sand should officially be a part of the USDA's Food Pyramid.

Finn loves the beach also, though it is the one and only place he will exhibit a modest amount of self control.

This happens a lot on the way home from our morning Adventure Time.

Is Finn wearing a "Shark" T at the beach?? That's funny!! (why am I thinking that was no coincidence??)
