Enchanted Ball at The Little Gym

Matthew and Avery both take classes at the Little Gym in OKC. They had an Enchanted Ball Friday night and mom and I took the kiddos to it. They played in the gym, ate ice cream and took a carriage ride, after a long wait in line. Avery dressed up in her princess outfit, but Matthew didn't want to wear a prince crown.
How long do we have to wait in line? I want to ride the carriage NOW!!!

We're getting bored with this long line!

Yea! We're on the carriage!

Check out the doggie behind Avery! He was really sweet.

Avery and her friend, Zoe from St. John's School.

The dog likes to sit on the horse when they take a break.

Maci can't believe she just saw a dog sit on a horse! WOW!

Tummy time!

Mommy is determined to catch me smile on camera, but not if I can help it!

Wow! My burp cloth is sooo interesting! Who needs toys?

I'm trying to take a nap here, unless you want to pick me up, cause ya know, I'm okay with that too!

Maci is 4 1/2 months old already! Time goes too fast. The other day I packed up all of her newborn and 0-3 month outfits and felt kinda sad that she had gotten so big already.

She's such a good baby that I even lay her down in her crib awake, I know you can't believe this would happen in the Kletke house, but yes, even awake and she talks herself to sleep.

She's a wiggly worm now too. She is ready to move and it probably won't be much longer. We have to babyproof all over again.

Through the sands of time.....

Matthew & Avery in their new Crab Sand Box.
Mommy & Daddy decided to get the kidoodles a sand box after we saw how much fun they had digging in the one at the fair. It will also save our backyard, since they love to dig holes all over the yard, and mommy will not stress out over that! Of course now I feel like we live at the beach with all the sand all over the place. Oh well, the kids are enjoying it and sand doesn't hurt anything! Marc had a wonderful time hauling 15 50lb. bags of sand to the backyard, as did I vacuuming it up from the inside of the van. Never a dull moment at the Kletke's!

Hmm, the kids seemed to have the most fun at the fair by digging in the dirt!

We arrived at the Fair at 10:30am on Saturday and actually stayed until 3:15 pm! Wow! The best part was that we all had a GREAT time! We ate lots of fair food, (YUM!) walked through the buildings, played some midway games, and of course played in the dirt. We even found a huge sandbox that the kids loved digging in. Avery, Matthew, and I then slid down the huge wave type slide 2 times. Daddy passed on that and held Maci.

Matthew's Visit to the Fire Station!

Matthew got to visit the Fire Station today! I picked him up from PreK and we went and bought cookies to take to the Fire Fighters. My MOMS club was doing this in Norman today as a way to remember 9/11, so I thought we would visit a firestation by Matthew's school in OKC. We thanked them for the job they do and then they gave Matthew a tour of the fire trucks! He got to sit in the cab and honk the horn and wear a helmet. He also got to shoot water out of the brush truck! So exciting! Matthew even wore his fire truck shirt and tells us often that he wants to be a fireman when he grows up!
