And the Zoo Gets Better

We went to the zoo again on Monday.  Jude didn't have quite as many breakdowns on this trip.  You may recall our first visit was quite an emotional one.  This time we were actually able to leave exhibits without any drama. ;)  We met up with my sister, her husband, and Blayze.  With two boys it can be a little more challenging, but thanks to Aunt Chelle's chocolate chip cookies Jude was pretty happy.  The heat kept us from staying too long (not to mention the fact that we forgot the sunscreen...oops), but the boys absolutely loved seeing the animals and being together.  Until the next time...

We live in Carlisle...otherwise known as "small town which trains go through".  While trains tend to be an annoyance to the average adult (I mean, who loves getting stopped by a train with a car full of groceries or when you're late to work?), they seem to be seriously the best thing ever for a little boy.  When Jude hears a train pass by his eyes get saucer size and he says, "What's that?".  He proceeds to answer his own question excitedly, "CHOO, CHOO!!!".  He also loves to watch Chuggington (a train cartoon for all of you that are not Disney Junior watchers).  And while we are not too keen on him watching a lot of TV, when we do, this cartoon is a pretty cute one if I do say so myself.   So, with all of this train fascination we were happy to find that when we made a stop at the outlet mall over the weekend they had small train ride.  We were glad to oblige when Jude asked to ride.

This Weekend...

If this holiday weekend is any indication of how our summer is going to be, then I'm thinking we are in for a busy yet exciting one.  Jude was plenty happy, because we mostly did things that he would enjoy.  On Saturday, I think we were outside more than inside, and of course, he was terribly pleased with that.  We took him to the park on Saturday evening.  Not sure what he liked best, playing on the playground or chasing bunny rabbits.  One thing is for sure, he still hates swinging!  We are not really sure how to cure him of that one.  ;)
