They had hands on things to do at the aquarium as well. Collin and Kade saw how they measured up against a big fish. Kade enjoyed playing at the water table. Collin had fun touching starfish and sea urchins.

Our trip to Chicago. After 6 Flags we headed down to Chicago to spend the day at Shedd Aquarium. It was so much fun! Collin was so interested in learning about different aquatic life (Monday at the library we checked out books on coral, starfish, and crabs). We had the chance to watch a dolphin training session and divers feeding some ocean animals.

Milwaukee Zoo. The boys loved checking out all the animals and had the chance to hand feed some birds. It was a great way to start our little vacation. The next day we spent at 6 flags. We got there when the park opened and stayed until 9:30. The boys rode there first roller coaster (Collin loved it Kade not so much!) No pictures though we were too busy playing!

Neighborhood 4th of July cookout! The boys used sparklers for the first time and watched the teenage boys light off fireworks.

Happy 4th!

Collin had his birthday party at WildAir. He invited his classmates from Kindergarten and some other friends. He had a blast and it was fun to watch the boys have fun with opening the gifts.

The two June birthdays celebrate together. On June 21st Aunt Laura turned 30 and on June 25th Collin turned 7. Aunt Laura went all out and bought Collin some cool birthday gear. She bought herself some as well!
