The Best Laid Plans…

… always get the most royally screwed up. Did you read about the birthday party? If so, you know this isn’t a new concept to me. There was little surprise then, when everything was as wacky as possible this morning and we ended up at the Museum Center instead of the Zoo. Long story, but still a fun morning.

We started in the Little Sprouts Farm, as we often do —

But we quickly moved to the Sprouts Town instead. We played in the kitchen —

until Avery heard the bells ringing from the ball room, and took off in that direction 🙂 (please note two things: a) I learned how to rotate a video that I (stupidly) recorded sideways. It’s so easy it’s embarrassing; and b) listen for Avery’s excitement, all the way to the end – “Mmm! Mmm! Mmm!”. Not sure why she chose that syllable, but it’s pretty cute nonetheless :))

After we played in the balls a while,

we played with the train table and worked on some auto repairs —

before Avery headed off to do some grocery shopping.

Pretty quickly it was time to call it a day. After all, afternoon naptime was fast approaching. (Remind me again then, why they are hollering in their room right now instead of sleeping?)


  1. Looks like the girls had a good time. We need to go down and check it out some day. Was the museum very busy? I didn’t see anyone else around the girls in the pictures. I have a feeling we will be spending a lot of our winter days there…hopefully just not with everyone else living in Cincinnati.

  2. They’re so stinking cute. 😀 I love Avery’s excited little run and squeals – adorable. 🙂

    Haha but seriously, I sat for like five minutes with a puzzled look on my face going, “Ballroom? That’s kind of silly. I mean, it’s not like they would really enjoy a ballroom. The music wouldn’t even be any fun for them.” I was so confused. 🙂

  3. Stacy, the museum WAS really busy! I didn’t expect it to be since everyone was at the zoo, but it was packed. I just do my best to find an angle where there aren’t other kids in my pictures unless I want them there! 😉
