This past week my husband and I experienced some family fun time and also celebrated a milestone with our daughter. Let me first say that I am SO grateful to be able to get out with my family of five. Being able to fit all three kids in our car safely has made a huge difference in our family. Now we are able to go to some many places together-big and small.
On Sunday, we took our children to the New York Hall of Science. Its free from Sept-June on Fridays at 2-4pm and Sundays at 10-11am. We made it just in time and instead of paying over fifty dollars we were able to enjoy our time there for free. Which I personally believe it should be, but who am I kidding-its New York and it really is the most expensive city in the country for a reason LOL
As you can see from the photos above, my munchkins really enjoyed themselves. It was our first time letting our eldest boy out of a stroller but since he turned three last month I figured we need to give him a little more freedom and take the opportunity to teach him how to stay close to us and to hold unto the stroller like his sister does.
After two hours of fun time we heading home-so glad we were able to do it since the rest of June is going to be quite busy for us and we won't be able to go back until September.
On Monday, our daughter had a ceremony at her school. Its called a "Moving Up" ceremony where the kids are symbolically moving up from Pre-Kindergarten to Kindergarten next year. I didn't want it to happen and I felt like it was such a huge step but I held it together. I didn't want to cry-I just wanted to be happy for her and us.
In one of the photos you can see my lil bunny girl getting very emotional because she saw daddy and I. I love her-shes so precious. I cannot believe she will be five this August because I remember so clearly when she was inside of me.
I always tell her that she will be my baby girl forever. And when shes a big girl and gets married and has babies of her own, I remind her that she will still be my baby girl. Why does time seem to slip through our fingers? Why can't they stay babies for a little bit longer?
Its all very bittersweet but I am happy and proud that they are all growing and are healthy little people. Lesson to be learned-it doesn't really matter what you do together as long as you spend it together. Am I right?
