Welcome baby Coop!

My cousin Allison and her husband Chris are the proud new parents of a little boy! Cooper David was born at 7:50 a.m. on Tuesday (6-16-09). He's 7.10lbs and 18.6 inches long. Congrats Alli and Chris! Remember to get some rest now, because you’ll never be able to do it again!

Two men and a trophy

Mike played in a dart tournament this weekend and took first place. Congrats! He won some money and a trophy...which is shared by his team...but he was able to have the first weekend visitation rights. And of course he had to get a photo of him, Drew and the dorky, but kind of cute.

Visit to the Magic House

Saturday we spent the morning at the Magic House in Kirkwood, Mo. Drew had a blast and all I could think about was, "why didn't I think of this sooner?!" He played in the little kitchen, in the balls, on the slide, with the car and he ran all over and behaved very well--which was shocking because he's not been very good at daycare lately, but that's for another blog.

I haven't been to the Magic House in years and Mike's never been, so this day was really fun for all of us. I was very impressed with the amount of exhibits and areas geared toward birth to 24 months. It was perfect. Everything was his size. It was safe, nothing he could get hurt on and there were not bigger kids pushing or knocking him down. We decided not to take the stroller in, which turned out to be good, because he didn't sit still very long. He was everywhere, but he did listen surprisingly well when we told him to stop or not to do something. So my advice, if you have a wild 17 month old boy and you need to burn off some energy, the Magic House is the place to I just have to find a place for next Saturday...any suggestions?
