The Crayola Factory was a blast!!! We had never gone and it is only about an hour away from our house. So I gathered up some friends and we went on Wed. It was so worth the drive and the $10. I figured I was in the right spot when I saw the Crayons coming off of a building. Kenna is so cute she wanted to color with the big yellow one.

This is a first, both of my children are in bed and sleeping at the exact same time!!! It will most likely never happen again I am counting it as a blessing as I have a raging headache and need to go to bed. Kenna has a few new phases that she is using that we find funny and would like to share. 1. If she likes some thing it is her "Favorite," if she really likes something it is her "favorite and my best" I will use it in a sentence (actually sentence spoken by her) "Mom, Aunt Tiffany is my favorite." I reply with I am so glad. "Mom, Jessica is my favorite and my best." Sorry Tiff. 2. "It wasn't an accident." She doesn't understand purpose I guess we will have to start using that word instead of asking if it was accident when she did something we are going to need to start saying was it done on purpose. She is very honest though if you catch her doing something she will tell you right away that it wasn't an accident. Brad's first day of school is tomarrow and we are all a bit nervouse. This is will be a bit of an asjustment for us. We have completely enjoyed having him arround all summer. It will be different having him studdying all of the time and having to do most of the stuff with the kids by myself. I am not so sure who is more nervous him about school or me about him startin school and doing this alone? It could be tricky! I am now in charge of mini enrichments in my ward. I have no ideas so if you have any good ones pass them my way. I was not blessed with any sort of creativity I have less than the short stick on that one it is more like no stick at all. I am off to bed so I can get rid of this head ache.

We did end up going to the zoo this morning it was a great day for the zoo! We got to see the new tiger cubs (3 of them) and that was the highlight for Kenna. We took lunches with us and had a picnic. Kenna did surprisingly well minding and staying close to us. It did help that we had one of those backpacks that doubles as a harness/leash and she could only go 2 ft away. Bryn slept through the zoo experience. We also went golfing this afternoon. Kenna was in Heaven. The course was crowded so we let her hit the ball while we waited for the slow people ahead of us to get off of the green and Brad let her help drive the golf cart. She asked for her own set of pink golf clubs as we were loading up to go home. I am the only voice of reason and the mean mommy I say no, Brad is a bit of a pushover and will most likely eventually say yes.

during school not the last week of the last ever summer vacation until retirement! Today Brad and some friends went golfing anyway in the rain. Kenna cried for awhile after we dropped him. She likes golf or anything really that involves a ball and something to hit the ball with. Bottom line anything sports = time with dad. I told her today that I love her and she didn't say anything back so I said don't you love momma? No, she said, I love Daddy. Monday is going to be a hard day for that little girl. While Brad hit a ball in the rain with a metal object (sound brilliant to anyone else?) Kenna and I watched a video we rented for her, Sleeping Beauty she has already watched it 5 to many times. It stopped raining for 1 hour so I sent her outside and she played her little heart out. The small break was much needed and I am sure it only happened because 50 million moms in Pennsylvania were praying for it . Tomorrow is going to be a nice day so they say do we are going to the zoo. Rain comes again Friday.

Everyone's blogs are so fun to see that we decided to do one as well. Here is what we have been up to this past week. Brad has been getting ready for his 2nd year of Dental School wich starts in a week. Kenna, Bryn and I went to the park, went swimming at a friends house, and went to the toy store to pick a toy out for a birthday party and in general enjoying the summer sun and low humitity that we have had this past week. We Scalped some cheep tickets (craigslist ofcourse) and ended the week with an Eagles pre-season game with our friends the Christiansen's. It was so fun! A small lighting storm and flash showers caused us to get down from our nosebleed seats and go into the concourse during halftime. After each touchdown fireworks went off and they sing a fun little fight song. It was so much fun to go and see them play. We are continuing to have a blast here in Phillie and growing closer together as a family.
