E's Day Out

Sunday, February 22nd was E's Day Out! It was such a great day! We kept it a secret until E woke up that morning, the grandparents arrived to take care of the babies, and we told E we had a big surprise for him. Then we got him into the car and gave him his first clue, a book about dinosaurs. Being the smart little cookie he is, he guessed we were going to a museum, but he had no idea he was about to see SUE! We explored the museum and seriously could have stayed another whole day there was so much to see. It's extra special to take your kids somewhere you went as a child and then relive it through their eyes. E even wanted to see the DIAMONDS exhibit, and I wasn't about to argue.

After the museum, we hit up Cheesecake Factory on Michigan Ave. for a quick bite. E had a "fizzy drink" aka Kiddie Cocktail, his second time tasting "pop." We sang "Happy Birthday" to Matt (his bday was on the 19th) and then headed over to the Cadillac Palace for "101 Dalmations the Musical." I have to agree with E that it was super cool especially at the end when real dalmations come out for a grand finale with a bunch of tricks. If you have a chance to go see it, the Krols give it thumbs up!

E passed out on the way home and Matt and I were thrilled to have spent a day with him and soak him in. Thanks Mom, Dad, and Helen for helping take such good care of the babies while we were away!

And I have to write this because I want my oldest son to remember the special moment he gave me as Matt and I do....I came downstairs Sunday morning to E making something at the kitchen table. In the diamonds exhibit they had a beautiful tiara and I must have commented on it because next thing you know, I have my very own pink tiara with sparkles. All his idea, Daddy helped with the design, and all for me. I am truly a lucky princess!

What a great shot of E with SUE, the museum was closing, I think we were the last visitors inside!

E dug out this dinosaur tooth...

it's just his size...goofball!

yep it's a tooth, wonder how much the toothfairy gives for one that size!

scared to shrink to 1/100 of his original size!

ok, totally felt like we were in "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" and then made a mental note for E to watch that movie b/c he had no idea what we were talking about!

3D Dinosaurs Alive...yikes!!
