Our Preschool Prep color of the week is Green, so yesterday Landen wore his new outfit! We spent all day talking about all the green dinosaurs all over his outfit! He loved telling me the dinosaurs say “Rrrrrrrrrrrr”.

Friday, Nana played hooky from school and we all headed up to INK in Gainesville, GA.  INK is a hands-on children’s museum where kids can role-play and learn through practical experiences. They have a grocery store, a dentist office, a post office, and a restaurant, just to name a few. There is over 2500 sq ft of play space, including room for a real airplane (which Landen REALLY enjoyed!).

Our first stop was the grocery store, there were mini shopping carts and all the shelves were lined with all sorts of food, there was even a butcher section. Landen was only interested in the fruits and veggies, he grabbed all of the veggies, except the broccoli then headed to the fruit where be made sure that he grabbed all of the bananas and all of the apples! When we tried to show him that there were chocolate milk bottles he told us “GONE” and threw the milk bottle back in the freezer!

Our next stop was the trains! They had a Thomas table set up so Landen stopped and played with them for a while. They also had a big train that you could push a button and it would whistle. Next it was on to the remote control train town! There were buttons all over the town that made different parts of it work; there was even a McDonalds drive thru.

Next we were off to the fire truck. At first I wasn’t sure he was going to play on it, he seemed more interested in the stuffed dog, but then he climbed on up. Of coarse he grabbed on to the wheel and started driving.

Then we were off to the police car! When he climbed into the car the first thing he did was push the buttons that turned on the lights! Then he climbed in the back seat and tried to buckle his seat belt. All I could think was “I hope this is not a sign of things to come!”

We got to MILK A COW!!!!

AND FLY A PLANE!!! This was one of his favorite parts, especially when Papa was showing him how to fly it.

Landen’s favorite part of the whole day was the indoor playground. Nana, Papa, and I took turns climbing thru it with him.

We had a great time at INK and can’t wait to go back sometime soon!

So we started our week 1 lessons. The theme for the week is Cows so we made decorated a pot to look like a cow. Landen’s pot didn’t come out very well, he put the spots on the cow but while they were drying he decided to take them all off.  But at least he had fun putting them on and taking them off!
