Tuesday morning we got Ella off to school,
took a couple extra pictures of Preston showing off how big he is,
and hit the gym. Then it was off to meet up with the Joy School crew. They have been exploring imagination and other such fun during this current unit and the plan was to see another play at the Miller Outdoor Theater. We arrived a little late and it was CRAZY busy there that day. There was NO parking by the theater, NO parking at the zoo and NO parking at the playground nearby. I think it was mostly due to school field trips being in full swing with the end of year approaching, however, it was slightly frustrating when you are in a car full of anxious children (I am just super thankful I wasn't the one driving...that was my best birthday present that day!). We ended up finally making it out of the craziness and headed over to this fun attraction downtown to check out the water fall, eat our picnic lunch and get some crazies out. The kids still had a blast.

Chasing the birds was pretty fun too, but Preston kept running after them and then he would keep going, and going, and going. Katie stole my camera and took some pictures of us walking back to the group. He is one fast little kid!
I love this moment Katie caught. I can just imagine Preston saying to Ian, "Did you see me Ian?! I ran so far and I'm so fast and my mom had to chase me! Ha ha ha!"
As we got near home Addie did say, "I thought we were going to a play!" Oh well :-). And then of course there was the icing on the cake....We were only feet away from being dropped off at our car back in Katy when Preston started throwing up all over. Happy Birthday to Mom! :-) He was crying and stinky and gross, but luckily it was pretty much contained to his car seat and didn't get all over Katie's car! I stripped him down and stuck the car seat and clothes in our trunk. Preston sat rather unsafely on the booster and Addie on the plain old seat of the car and we hurried the short distance home before anything else could happen. Addie asked me if Preston was sick and I told her I was pretty sure he just got car sick. She quickly corrected me saying, "No Mom, he was van sick, because Ellie has a van!" Luckily he really was just car sick and we all still enjoyed our Tutti Frutti later that night!
