Happy 11th Birthday Macen!

He had a pretty good day with the exception of having to call Amazon twice to have them replace 2 of his presents. It may be time to start shopping in store again, lol. Hard to believe he is 11 now. He's such an amazing kid - a leader, funny, thoughtful and smart. We love you more than you could know Macen!

Great Wolf Lodge

We spent the night at Great Wolf Lodge for Macen's birthday. They had blast and it was nice to tune out the world for a bit.

The hot tub (or spa to them) is always a fave wherever we go.

Maddox did this over and over and over.

Howling like a wolf

When not swimming, they played in the arcade and became master magi's thru MagiQuest.

Art of the Brick

Next we made a trip to Union Station for the Art of the Brick display. Lots of statues/models made entirely of Legos.

This was a display within a display within a display. Macen was fascinated!

At the end, they got to play with Legos.

Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City

I took the boys to the money museum at the Federal Reserve Bank. They got some more knowledge on money and got to watch employees sort and move money around. They also got to leave with a small bag of shredded money.

This guy won treats for the 3rd year in a row at school carnival cake walks. He's my sweets lucky charm! I told them before we got to the carnival that the goal for the night was to win at the cake walk especially since a local bakery was supplying the entire cake walk. He didn't let me down, lol.

Snow in April

Not only did Easter and April fools Day collide but we also got snow... in April. The boys love heading to the trampoline to bounce the snow around.
