Mia was pumped to go on the slide- she even said wee on the way down. She cried and cried when we walked away from the slide. I would have taken her again, but the rides are ridiculously priced. It was adorable to hear her cry for the "wee."
Ride #2 was a roller coaster. She cried initially, but loved it after about the 3rd rotation.
I have not purchased them yet, but one of these days our family will own a set of these nail polish pens. Ellie loves them and even used her decorated nails as show and tell. The lady decorated all of her nails... I think that was above and beyond (especially because we didn't buy them). Ellie asked if we could put these on her "Christmas list." We are not so responsible with finger nail polish around here- even hiding on the top shelf it somehow ends up on the hard wood floor. Any remedies for this? It's still there. remover didn't work.
Next year Jense will be holding Sam in that boat... he can't wait. He asks me ALL THE TIME when Sam is going to grow up. He just can't wait to have his brother older so he can play and interact with him. I always tell him that Sam is not allowed to grow up.
A big thumbs up from Jense!Jensen has over heard his dad talking about getting a go-kart. It is on his list. He wants to do some trading for a go-kart. Now Jense is preoccupied with getting a go-kart. When Ellie asked to have fingernail polish put on her "Christmas list" Jense chimed in and thought a go-kart would fit nicely on his list. I suppose it is only a matter of time before his dad makes it happen, but it will be for his daddy's Christmas and Father's Day and Birthday ;-)
Ellie's nurturing is evident will all creatures. She could have loved those animals all day long. Hopefully someday she will have a pet she can love when "her babies" are older.
