THE little HOUSES

We have the BEST little town where I live! It’s a completely enclosed area in the middle of our outdoor mall. It has a fire department, a bank, a train stop AND a full size train which is opening this summer. The BEST part is….it’s FREE! The moms can sit around and chat and the kids just run around. It’s perfect mommy bliss! Oh, and there is a cute grass maze the kids can explore. We met some friends there two weeks in a row {the reason for the outfit changes}. I know I’m good, but not that good :)

Cole was obsessed all day carrying around his buddy Sutton’s lunchpail. It looked a little mini briefcase. He was too cute dragging it around.IMG_6595

I was so excited that I finally got to meet sweet Grant Carroll! Let me just say what a doll he is! How do I look with 2 kids?! hahaIMG_6546IMG_6630  Oh man! The CARS! Cole is obsessed with all things wheels! His backpack is full of them. We are currently working on our sharing skills. Landon shared one of his cars with Cole during lunch, but Cole was not able to let go of one of his sweet wheels. Landon was cracking us up when we would ask him where Cole’s car was…he would put both hands behind his back and “hide” them from us. Serious funniness!IMG_6605IMG_6168 IMG_6173

Sweet Sutton being so darn sweet!  IMG_6632 IMG_6602copy  IMG_6606copy IMG_6622

This little town sounds AWESOME!! Our local mall just has the small playgroup, nothing exciting. I love the picture of Cole with the lunch pail. Too cute!

such cute pics...and it is such a neat place too. Landry loves it when we are there for stroller fit!

and yes...you look too cute in your hat and piggy tails and with two kiddos!

That is a great idea. Our outdoor mall has a tiny town but the train is $2 to ride-but it all goes to St. Jude's. Unfortunately for Preston the train is so crowded on the weekends. And he is not the most patient child. You look adorable with two kids. The thought of my having two kids throws me into hives, but I enjoy watching others! Hee hee.
Cole is the man. Seriously. I just heart him. I wish you were coming to NY this summer. I need to love on that child.

Alex said...

The Weisser family said...

Wow that place looks like so much fun! Our malls suck! they dont have anything for kids! I'm w/ Alex, your pix are always so great!! What kind of camera do you have?

Bobbi said...

What a neat place! It looks like so much fun for the kiddos and mommies (and daddys, too). Cole is just so darn cute! Like the other moms, I agree too...you take the BEST pictures! Of course, it probably isn't too hard when you have that adorable Cole around :)

Melisa said...

What a wonderful place for you to get together with the local moms and have the kids run around, burn some energy and just have a great time. Cute pictures as always.

That little town looks like SO much fun! I love Cole with his lunchbox/briefcase ~ too cute! The kids lined up on the bench look like a little Gap ad :0)
