Science Spectrum

We went to the Science Spectrum on Memorial Day. Had a great time. Hayden loved playing in the Physical Science Exhibits, Kidspace, loved seeing the Dinosaurs Exhibit, looking at all of the fish and reptiles in The Brazos River Journey. Then we played a little basketball in the Science of Sports but the one thing that they had and he REALLY LOVED was the big train set that they had set up on the top floor. Luckily it was the last exhibit that we went to because we couldn't get him away from it. Enjoy the pictures.

Watching the trains and the train set exhibit. He kept saying, "Choo Choo."

He loved playing the with Bubbles at the Physical Science Exhibit. End of the day pictures with Mommy and Daddy

Big Boy Bed

It was a sad Sunday morning for Mommy and Daddy. We took Hayden's crib down. It was a tough decision but it was well worth it. Hayden did not like us taking it apart. He kept saying, "My bed." But we let him get involved taking it down and we think it helped him out. Once we got the crib out and rearranged his room we let him play in his big bed. After lunch he went down for a nap for the first time in his big bed and all he wanted to do was play and pull his curtian back to look out the window. So, I went into his room and told him that he needed to take a nap and not play around. Well, that was all it took and now he loves sleeping in his bed. We took alot of pictures of him with his crib and his big boy bed.

That morning when he woke up we took this picture.

Playing in his drawers that go under his big boy bed. He told us that he was going to sleep so he went and got his pillow and all of his blankets.

He now sleeps with Elmo. When he was in his crib he didn't sleep with anything. Now all of a sudden he wants to sleep with Elmo. I guess it helps with his transition. Elmo sleeps on his own pillow everynight. Also, check out the video of him climbing into his crib for the last time. It's GREAT!!!!

John Deere Tractor

Hayden has finally decided to ride his John Deere Tractor that Mamma and Pappa Wiley, Blaine's grandparents, gave him for his 1st birthday. He feels just like daddy because we have a riding lawn mower just like this one. Check out the video below of him riding the tractor with a BIG smile on his face and enjoying every moment of it.

National Champions

South Plains College Men's team captured its second straight NJCAA Outdoor Track and Field National Championship Saturday. Blaine was awarded Assistant Track Coach of the Year. We are so excited for him. He deserves this award for all the hard work that he has done. It was a great meet, cold and rainy, but it was worth it in the long run. The Women's team was second. GO TEXANS!!!

Hayden is becoming our little gymnastics boy. One of his friends at school, Kelby, is teaching some of the kids how to do somersaults. One day he came home from school and said "Watch me do a cartwheel Mama." What he really meant was a somersault, but that is what he calls it. It is so funny watching him do this. Thought that everyone else would like to see it too.

Chuck E. Cheese

Nana and Papa were in town this week and the took Hayden to Chuck E. Cheese for lunch one day. He had a blast. They couldn't get him to eat his lunch because all he wanted to do was play.

Crawling through the tubes on the ceiling.

Our drummer boy!

This is his favorite game. All that he kept saying was "Play Basketball, Play Basketball."

This was another game that he loved to play.

Climbing into the tubes and the slide.

He loves to go down the slide on his stomach or face forward. He is a dare devil.

Collecting his tickets with Papa.

All in all, their day at Chuck E. Cheese was FUN!!! Hayden loved every minute of that day. He even wore Nana and Papa out because when I got home from work that afternoon everyone was taking a long nap. Must be nice.

Hayden went bowling for the first time a couple of weeks ago at a birthday party at Main Event in Lubbock. One of the employees was helping all the kids out who have never bowled (First Picture). He Loved It. He's becoming our little pro bowler. He didn't like waiting his turn in line or giving up the bowling ball when it was one of the other kids turn. He just want to keep bowling no matter what.
