The Memphis Children's Museum

I took Dylan to visit the Memphis Children's museum a little while ago and here are the pictures. It was a fun place and he liked it a lot. I think it was pretty comparable to the Omaha museum just way more crowded! Unfortunately for us it is also a 20 minute drive from our house. The zoo is that far away too. That is one thing I miss about Omaha, we had that stuff 5 minutes away! It has been 100 degrees here in Memphis so we haven't been doing many outdoor activities. We had a play set installed in our backyard when we first moved in and Dylan has barely used it since he gets over heated after 5 minutes outside. We beat the heat by staying in the air conditioning and making runs to Sonic down the road. They have great drinks and if you go during happy hour they are 1/2 price! There are a group of girls that do pilates 3 mornings a week at the church. I have been trying to go even though it is at 9:00 am. That is really early for me especially with 2 kids. I mainly go so Dylan can run around with the other 15 kids in the church gym. I am not sure how much of a work out I get since Jaxson doesn't like sitting in his car seat the whole time. Nick has been busy as usual and I will have to post about him later. He has a much more exciting day than I do!

Catching Up (July pictures)

These pictures are from the sprinkler park and pool we visited this month. The sprinkler park was kind of a drive, but Dylan had fun. The pool is in an apartment complex down the road. My friend sneaks in with her kids so I joined her. There aren't any public pools where we live so what else can we do? Jaxson likes the water and doesn't mind getting wet at all. I am hoping to enroll Dylan in swimming lessons this summer, when I get around to getting a gym membership. At least the gyms seem to have outdoor pools!
