Our Favorite activities



One of my favorite things to do is take Gabby to the pet store! yes, Sue's (dirty) pet castle! Gabby could run around in there looking between the giant glass dog displays for hours on end! I'm sure they love us in return..... At least once a week I pull up in the very front parking space, far be it for me to walk any further than needs be! I come waltzing in with my giant camera and toddler who is there to smear the already nasty glass even more! What could be more fun? Gabby beams and yells doggie at least 5,000 times while saying "oh and eww" in between! This is sure to be one of my favorite memories with her at this age and I think the (horrible quality) pics will explain it from the look on her face! My pictures are all just trials from experimenting with the aperture on my camera. I am having a blast learning how to manually work with it! Note* this in only my second venture with my camera on manual mode* My teacher gave us an assignment to take pics with the lowest ap. the middle ap. and the highest to start learning how lighting (in a round-a-bout way) effects the outcome of the pic. SO, with that being said, some of them are really blurry. I wish I would have chose a plant to experiment with.

I also love to take Gab to the mall so I can let her play on the rides, without putting any quarters in them! Like she knows they move. When she gets bored of them, I'll start putting the money in to make a whole new experience.

I used to do that too with the rides at the mall, it was a great winter activity. Love that Gabs loves the pet store, so cute.

Good for you - we started putting quarters in the rides and now Kate knows what they do and doesn't want to play on them unless they are moving!

I STILL love going to the pet store to look at puppies! It's not just a kid activity! If I had the time I'd be right with you gabbs!

That is too funny & too cute. Too bad the pet store stinks so bad, or I would go more often!

Funny -so she hasn't rode them with movement? That's brilliant Lindz- really now she'll just always be happy just to play on them and cheaper too! (until she sees the kids next to her going one time!) That's great-I have to go the mall again someday it's been months!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Tiffy! Oh you are MISSING OUT at the mall!!! NOT!!! haha
Next time if there are any kids riding them, I'll cover her eyes and distract her! I am a mean mom.

PS, she has actually experienced them moving but she doesn't prefer one to the other. I figure I'll just let her play on then still til she askes.
