You Learn Something New Every Day

The last couple of days have been fun for Clay because he has tried a few new things. He got this really fun water table for his birthday last year but he's only used it a handful of times. It wasn't very nice weather outside the other day and I thought it might be fun to try something new (and I'm a rule breaker at heart!) so we brought it inside and set up shop in the middle of the living room. He had a blast!

We have a mall that has a beautiful carousel in it but Mike's never there with me so Clay has never gotten to ride it (I don't want him to miss Clay's first Carousel ride + how else could I get video and camera shots of such an important event?!). So finally yesterday I had some stuff to grab at that mall and Clay got his chance to ride the carousel. He LOVED it! All of the horses have names and he picked "Joe Joe". He kept saying, "Wheee" and "horse" the whole time.

He was so excited to ride and he definitely was NOT ready when it was time to get off! All he would say was, "I sit on horse!" and cry, cry, cry as we left. Poor baby!

Today we went to the zoo but I didn't take my camera so no pictures- bummer! (Am I the only one who is secretly glad when they forget their camera so you can actually enjoy the experience with your child and not worry you're missing a "good shot" all the time??)

So where can we fit a carousel? Your house or mine?
