Our Morning...about Moose, Milk, and Many Germs

We went to Pipsqueaks this morning. Right after I got the girls up Luke woke the girls early from their morning nap, we loaded up, popped in our Moose CD, and headed out.

It's one of the only places here in town with indoor play for younger children during the winter months. We're very lacking in that area. If I could open a huge jumping gym in town, I would. Then I'd open a Child Development Center on a farm right on the outskirts of town and teach children about gardening, animals, and bugs..but that's a whole different post.

The big kids love the slides and riding toys, the little girls love being held/pushed around in the double/crawling around all the running children. I just love getting out. I know it's good for our children to engage in gross motor play at Pipsqueaks so I try to imagine that every child and adult that walks through the dirty door has thouroughly disinfected their hands, and continues to do so throughout their stay. Then I try to imagine what a day at Pipsqueaks would be like when Luke doesn't take other childrens' chocolate milk or crackers while I'm not looking.

Here's a picture of the girls enjoying a little sit on Momma's lap. I know it looks like Julia took the picture. But because I don't have 3 arms....this is how it turned out...but upside down, so I rotated it for you and your viewing pleasure.

the pic of those "pipsqueaks" is adorable! I wish we had an indoor play area aside from McDonalds here! Well if most moms are like me, I was not germ conscious before children...but now I carry hand sanitizer spray EVERYWHERE! So hopefully right?

1/2 a pipsqueak + 1/2 a pipsqueak = one totally cute photo!

I know what you mean about the inflatable places...wish there was a DECENT one here in my hometown.
Esp w/ hand sanitizer pumps at the entrance of each tube!

Good for you for getting out of the house! I had the same thought as MCK Mama when I saw that picture. 1/2 + 1/2 = 1. At least their twins, so we "get the full effect" of the picture! :)

You are soooo brave. Seriously- I absolutely admire you so much for taking all the kiddos out on your own! I am such a wimp.

What are you going to do with your blogspot name after you have 4 under 4?

Ahem. I happen to know of a farm on the outskirts of town that would be perfect for teaching children about gardening, animals and bugs. Really. We have 5 acres in the middle of a cornfield. It'd be perfect for your dream and it is going up for sale on April 1. Wanna sneak a peek?

That is a great picture because you can see those beautiful blue eyes so well. It looks like a big group hug to me. :-) I have to go take a nap thinking about this trip and all the running around you must have done.

I too love the picture of your sweet girls!!! :-) Sounds like quite the fun place to play. My kids are going SO stir-crazy! My town is also really lacking in the way of indoor play centers for kids to "wear off steam"!!!

Glad you guys had a great time!!!
