Tammy’s parents have been up in Redwing for a while this spring. Since it just takes a little over an hour, the Tammy and the kids drove down to visit Grandma and Grandpa and were able to come back home the same day.
It is nice to see that teeter totters still exist. They just have a lot more safety features than when I was a kid. We got a long board over blacktop and we were lucky to have handles. Now they have seat belts, backrests, and a padded surface underneath.
I don’t even know what this is called, but Emma enjoyed it.
This would not be allowed at the park. A good old fashioned swing with a rope, just more thrilling. To the front a 4 feet drop off, to the rear 8 feet. For the most part Kenny liked it.
He did get a little concerned when Emma got control of the rope.
With the roles reverse things went just fine. Emma was happy and Kenny enjoyed being in control.
Emma had an action packed birthday. We wanted to fill it with memories that she could look back on.
The first event of the day was going to the Children’s Museum with Emma’s good friend Ava. Papa Fish came along to for the fun.
Eau Claire has a great children’s museum with lots of neat and realistic activities.
These two ladies did a nice job painting their tractors.
After the museum they went to Emma’s favorite place to eat…Noodles and Company.
This might be controversial, but Emma did get her ears pierced on her birthday.
As you can tell there was a little discomfort, but she didn’t cry at all.
If you look really close you can see the pink little flowers in her ears.
I mentioned in the last post that the day was action packed. When I got home from school I took Emma and Landry sledding. The weather here in Eau Claire finally got a bit warmer (upper 20s) so being outside was an option.
Mom had the camera and we had to make a couple stops in some places where the light was good.
We had a lot of fun sledding and we would have stayed later, but we had to get home for the big party.
