I bought this toddler bed a few weeks ago so today we got it all ready to go and put it in Chloe's room. She took her nap in it - didn't even "bawk" and even went to bed tonight in it!!!! She just smiles and says "Chloe, big bed" when we tell her it's time for bed. She's always been a great sleeper but this was much easier than I thought. She even called me after her nap today just like when she's in her crib - hey, maybe she doesn't know she can get out!!!!
We just loved this cabin - it had a loft where we all slept and plenty of room in the downstairs for kitchen, large bathroom and TV/Living area. We would highly recommend this spot - and Custer is so fun -lots of quaint shops, great coffee - what more could you ask for - oh yes, internet!!!! :)
See any resemblance????

The ducks loved Chloe and she loved them!
At Sylvan Lake - the kids loved the hiking here - yes, even I hiked - I'm not afraid of exercise - I just don't like it as much as others do!!
Yes - we drove through Needles Highway - I got back in after they drove through - they didn't leave me behind!!
At Mount Rushmore - we had to prove we really made it. We even got to see it lit up at night - that was fun!
Well - we made it to South Dakota and CONQUERED!! We had so much fun seeing the Badlands, the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore and more!! I am experiencing slight withdrawal as I have not had internet all week - but that's ok too - just couldn't update my blog!!! :) We had a super time - we decided this is the time of year to travel - not many other people and hardly any kids - we had it all to ourselves - well, almost!! We loved our cabin - we will definately do that again sometime! So - here's my big update and pics!!!

Well - we're on our way - we started our trek to Mt. Rushmore and the Badlands. We made it as far as Wall and yes - we are at the Wall Drug!!! We visited a great rest stop and took some pictures and stopped a few other times too - what can we say, we're travelling with kids!!

We needed a model for our plant unit today and Chloe was it!! My friend and I meet weekly for Science with our kids and this unit is plants - how can you not learn about petals and stems with a face like this looking at you?!?!? She was our living, breathing specimen!

The Roads aren't Safe Anymore....but then neither are the Sidewalks!!!!
It was our first time on our new Dora trike - it does play tunes and yes, Chloe thinks it has to play the whole time she is driving!! I'm sure the neighbors love us!! And - no scooting with her feet either - she pedals the whole way - not bad for a not-quite-two-year-old.
It's Chloe the Explorer!!!

Fun at the Park -
this should say it all - they didn't stop smiling the whole time!! But, what's better than the park? Chloe is fearless this year - all over the ladders, slides - you name it. The girl has no fear - the boys love it!! (Dad and Mom are scared to death!!)
