Kings Island

We took Evan to Kings Island last year in September and he had a great time. Well, ever since then he has been asking us if Kings Island is open yet! (Kids don't forgot :)). So, we decided to get passes this year. We have already gone twice, on the first two days that they were open. It's been a blast. Evan is slightly under 36" required for some of the rides - so we put on his tall shoes and added extra socks - and he was ready to go. Here are some pictures from one of our visits!

We had a beautiful day yesterday and Evan and I decided to plant flowers. I thought Evan would be interested in digging in the dirt. Instead, he made a new friend - Wormy the worm! Evan showed Wormy around the yard, found a new pipe for him to play in, and even took him on the swing. I didn't have the heart to tell him that Wormy was looking a little crunchy when we returned him to the grass. Luckily there are lots of "Wormys" out there!

Big Boy Bed

On March 9th, Doug's 30th Birthday - Evan decided it was his turn to grow up too. He climbed out of his bed for the first time. I was cooking for Doug's birthday, and heard a door open upstairs. I went upstairs and found Evan at the door with a huge grin on his face. Over the next few days, he demonstrated how he could get out of this be "safely" over and over again (even after we flipped the crib around so the tall side was up. So, we took the front of the crib off and put up a bed rail. It was an adjustment for Evan (now being about to leave his crib) but overall, he did a great job!
