Chickadee finally got to see The Lego Movie 2 last week, so she was very excited to see this huge display at Walmart today, where she was even able to “hold hands” with Lego Batman!
Today is Ladybug’s 12th birthday, so of course Chickadee wanted to take a picture with her!
We had a very Avengers-and-Lego-themed day, which explains pretty much everything about this picture!
I had to take my laptop into the Apple Store for a repair this afternoon, and Chickadee had a fun time checking out the tech toys while we were there!
Ready to see Avengers: Endgame!
Ready for Holy Thursday worship…we’re still worshipping in the basement of our church home away from home while they work on renovating their sanctuary, but Chickadee doesn’t mind!
Chickadee had fun visiting the National Blues Museum in St. Louis for the first time today!
After touring the museum, we walked around downtown St. Louis for a bit, and in addition to looking longingly through the gates of Busch Stadium, where the Cardinals were playing the Dodgers (the Cards won), we stopped at Kiener Plaza, where Chickadee had some fun on the playground:
It was a nice way to spend a spring day in the city!
Chickadee might be annoyed that today’s rain postponed the Cardinals home opener, but that didn’t stop her from getting out and enjoying it!
Today’s “Chickadee Thursday” pictures are actually “Chickadee Wednesday” photos, and with good reason…we made our yearly visit to Rural King yesterday, and while we didn’t find bunnies for sale, we did discover that in the last year, the store has a acquired a mascot…Tate the Rabbit!
Did you know that you can put a leash on a rabbit and walk him around the store? I didn’t, but apparently, Tate enjoys it, and so we spent some time there, taking him for a…hop?
Chickadee loved how big he was, and how soft (and pink!) his ears were. He’s a good and patient rabbit for sure!
I really have to commend the gentleman who works at our local Rural King. For at least the last three or four years, he has been super kind and accommodating…he always takes time to talk to us about their animals (usually chicks and ducks in addition to bunnies), and finds time to let the children interact with the rabbits…he’s a true treasure!
This was the very rare year where Turkey’s and Chickadee’s birthdays fall in the same calendar week. Today was Chickadee’s turn…she is now seven!
We started the day early with present opening and cinnamon rolls. Chickadee was very excited not only to receive a new stuffed elephant, but also her first American Girl doll, and some clothes and accessories to go with her:
We spent the morning at the St. Louis Zoo, where we saw quite a few animals, including Chickadee’s favorite…the elephants:
We spent the afternoon watching Sailor Moon. After a dinner of Pizza Hut, we continued the day’s theme with an elephant-shaped birthday cake:
It’s hard for me to believe that my youngest child is seven. The years since Chickadee’s birth have gone by especially quickly, and I’m constantly surprised to realize what a big girl she is now!
After a really bad week of weather last week, we finally got to play tennis again!
Today is the last day Chickadee will be six…she’s very excited about her birthday tomorrow!
