Yesterday, me and my little sister Sophia went back to Smith Playhouse & Playground with my Mommy, Grammy, and Pop-Pop. I really like going there a lot because I just can't get enough of the giant slide in the playground, the train table upstairs in the playhouse, and all the different things to ride on in the basement of the playhouse. We noticed that Smith is building a new play area in back of the playhouse and it's almost finished. I hope that it opens real soon so, I can play in there the next time I go back to visit.

This trip to Smith was really special for me because it is the first time my Mommy got a chance to go with me. Grammy and Pop-Pop told her how much I like the giant slide and how I learned how to do it all by myself the last time that I was there. So today, she got a chance to see me in action herself for the first time. My sister is too little to go down the giant slide or do anything else just yet but, she kept Mommy company while I played.

Here are some pics that my Grammy took and you can click on each collage for a larger view of all the fun. My Mommy and little sister took something called a "cat nap" for a few minutes while we were in the playhouse. But, there were no naps of any kind for me because I was on the move! Who ever heard of taking a nap when you're at a fun place like this anyway (smile)?

After playtime was over, we were really hungry and wanted to get something to eat. By that time, I was pretty thirsty too so, Mommy got the idea that we should all go to a place called "Chili's" to have some lunch. My sister was something called a "little tropper" today because she was really awake for most of our time at Smith and Chili's. She even watched me color while we were waiting for our food and drinks.

After lunch, we all went to Grammy and Pop-Pop's house for a visit. Once again, I was with my Thomas & Friends trains and I had a great time playing with them. I really miss them a lot. After that, I watched some "Mickey-Goofy" (Mickey Mouse Playhouse) on TV for a little while and then, Mommy said that it was time for us to go home. I had a great time at Smith and it was nice to spend some time with Grammy and Pop-Pop again. It was a fun day!

Oops! The Lost Photos of "Grannies' Day!"

Last month, me and my little sister made another special trip to Smith but that time, we were there with our two cousins, Miles and Jaden. All four of us were there with our "Grannies" and my Pop-Pop was there too.

Me and my little sister kept Grammy and Pop-Pop pretty busy that day but, she did get a few pics of our day together. She forgot that they were in the camera but, she found them today when we worked on the above post. I was upstairs in the playhouse at the train table with my Pop-Pop when these pics were taken so, I missed out.

We all went out to McDonalds and had lunch together after we finished at the playhouse and playground. It was the perfect ending to another great day at Smith!

Hey BW, I had no idea Smith Playground was open on Sundays. We'll be there to play soon. I love that playground too! That slide is terrific.

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
