New Experiences

Over the weekend, we went to Chicago to help Hubby's younger sister move.  The actual moving part only took several hours, but since we were all there, we made a vacation out of it. 

My favorite part was shopping at the outlet mall right across the road from our hotel.  Got some good deals on a few outfits for the kidlets plus I found some t-shirts to make some more dresses and hoodie shirts out of.  I'm completely addicted to making upcycled clothes right now (http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.173977972661135.39962.102347329824200).  Here's a picture of the dress I made on Thursday:

Princess and Little Man had a ton of fun playing with their cousins.  They also enjoyed their first trip to Chuck E. Cheese.  Much to Hubby's chagrin, Princess had no interest in playing games to win tickets.  All she wanted to do was ride the different rides.  Don't worry, Hubby appropriated some of her tokens and won enough tickets for her to pick out two very cheap tacky toys from the "store." 

Princess's favorite ride was the carousel.  To her right is Little Man who also enjoyed riding.    

Little Man loved dancing to the music at Chuck E. Cheese (why didn't I bring the video camera?!?!) and was fascinated by the racing games.  He spent a good 1/2 hour sitting at a game with a steering wheel and probably annoying the other kids who wanted a turn on it.  No tokens needed, he was thrilled to be sitting there "driving."  When I tried taking him somewhere else, he threw a tantrum worthy of the hall of fame and toddled right back over to the game.

The kids are both taking naps.  I have a t-shirt and some fabric that's just begging to be turned into an adorable little dress.  See you all later.
