Oops, I did it again!

Once again, I used up all of my space on this blog.  The timing isn’t horrible since The World of Will needs to change to accommodate our growing team.  So from this point on, find us at:

www.worldofwillwalton3.wordpress.com  better known as The World of . . . The Waltons

We look forward to seeing you there.

Arriving in DC

Team Walton arrived in DC on Christmas Eve Eve.  The cousins were all so excited to see each other.  They ran around and around.  I think that Peyton was most excited to see Uncle Jim.  She had him throwing her all over the place.  He was exhausted by the end of the night.  They even had a little dance party where Peyton got to show off her dance from her recital.  I brought some bath paints to make for the kids to use in the bath tub.  They loved it!  Connor didn’t like the paint on him (good thing that he didn’t realize that Will put tons of paint in his hair as soon as they started!)  After bath time, the kids had some down time watching Connor’s Christmas program at school, and Peyton’s dance recital.  It was such a great day!  I love seeing all of the kids together, and it makes me sad that we live so far apart.

I had tons of great pictures from the bath time fun and even some videos, but I didn’t want to get in trouble for putting naked kids on here.

Monkey Joes

We met our friends Elizabeth, Jason, and Gabriella at Monkey Joes while they were on Christmas break from school.

We’ve only been to Monkey Joe’s once before when we were in Orlando last January.  Back then, I found it to be a waste of money.  It was $10 for Will to play, since he was only 17 months old and pretty short, he simply wasn’t big enough to climb on most of the inflatable slides.  They had some toddler things, but they seemed to bore Will especially with no other kids there to run around with.

I was pretty sure that things would be different this time because not only does Will love to chase after Jason, but being during the Christmas break, I figured that there would be lots of kids there.

Will did have a great time!  He ran around on all of the jumping things, but he wanted to play with the arcade games even more.  I looked and a woman was pulling him out of the inside of a skeet ball machine.  🙂  There was one big obstacle course that he wasn’t quite big enough to go on, so he got an employee to help him through it.  It was so funny, and I was grateful because being pregnant, the thoughts of climbing through the obstacle course were not so appealing to me.  🙂

At one point, Will came running up to me to show me some smarties that he had “found.”  Thankfully he likes to show off his “finds,” so I took them from him before he could eat them.  Later he came running up to show me some glasses that he had “found.”  We ended up eating lunch there, and while I was paying, Will was playing with a little Christmas tree that they had.  The girl behind the counter was laughing, and I soon realized why.  I guess all of the things that he was “finding” were really being used as ornaments on their little tree.  They had just taken a sampling of the trinkets that you could buy or win and put them all over the tree.  Will had been running up there and pulling off the things he liked all morning.  Oops!  I put them back once I realized where they came from.  🙂

Will hates wearing socks.  Most of the winter he is barefoot with cold feet because he doesn’t like to keep them on.  I can’t even put socks or shoes on him until we show up at a location because he’ll just pull them off in the car.  The rules at places like this are that you have to keep your socks on.  Will will keep them on for a minute if he sees other people with them on, but eventually he takes them off.  At one point he got in “trouble” with one of the workers because of not wearing his socks.  I told him to show me where he put them.  Thankfully, he always can take me right to where they are laying on the ground.  This time it was in the obstacle course, but he took me right there.  😉

It was a fun morning!  🙂
