Photo Dump Wednesday: Firsts

We had a pretty fun weekend planned around JOE and it was perfect. JOE have several firsts this weekend.

JOE loves Elmo and since she hasn't been to a museum, we figured it would be a good opportunity to take her. Coincidentally, it was also Elmo's birthday so of course, there was a pretty good crowd at the museum.

J decided to treat us with his black credit card ☺.

Our first first of the day was J turning JOE'S car seat forward facing. She is still a petite little one but she is tall so we figured she was ready. We were right. She loved it. 

Another first was JOE visiting the Children's museum. The first thing she saw was Elmo and she immediately went over to say hello :-).

Then it was time to get down to business. The business of cooking that is. Here she is with all her food gathered in her shopping basket.

Now to review all she has.

Next stop, wash the veggies. My baby does watch me when I am in the kitchen! :-).

And now it is time to cook!

But oh no! You need to build the fire...or something...who knows? She just started gathering this stuff...

And then an announcement came on that Elmo was going to do a dance. JOE was at first excited until she saw Elmo...I'll let you see her reaction.

By the way, why does Elmo have a butt? I thought Elmo was a guy?

And Elmo also had boobs. Hmmm...something is different here...
I think JOE sensed it cause check out the look on her face.

And there was a cookie monster too.

Well, after a little crying by JOE when we said we were leaving, we were off to our next adventure. The Ferris Wheel!

On our way, we saw this and I just had to take a picture. It looked rather peaceful/calming.

Then there was this door. The picture didn't do it justice. Its pretty cool!

We also walked by a farmer's market on our way. Yup...this was a long walk to the Ferris Wheel but also a scenic one.

And there she is. The American version of the London Eye. Wicked cool! We waited in line for almost an hour in hot and humid weather to get on and it was worth it.

JOE clearly was enjoying it :-).

Some pictures of the view from up there.

And then it was time to head on home. JOE promptly fell asleep once we got in the car. She had an awesome time and so did we.

I hope you're having an awesome week so far.


  1. Great post! LOVE the pictures! I cracked up at the ELMO, hahahaha!

    1. Thank you! :-). The Elmo picture still makes me laugh.

  2. That looks like a fun trip to take. I don't always see pics of the three of you together, so I l really loved the pic towards the end. Oh and you have got to tell me where J got that black

    1. It sure was. Definitely a day dedicated to having family fun. I am often the one taking pics so it is hard to get everyone in the same frame. Will try to do better. :-)

      JOE just got it in the mail from a credit card company. It was so funny!

  3. This looks like such a great day and you can tell just how much she enjoyed herself! Beautiful pictures!

    1. We had a fabulous time and she certainly enjoyed herself. Thank you! :)

  4. This post is all sorts of awesome. What a great weekend you guys had.
    My boys are so into Elmo right now, we are taking them to Sesame place in a few weeks.

    1. Thank you! We definitely had a great time. It was nice seeing you yesterday. We'll have to catch up again soon.

      Where is Sesame Place?

  5. Looks like an awesome trip...all I hear all day is Elmo, Elmo! Those pics of them sleeping after a fun day is the best!

    1. It sure was. Elmo seems to have a hold on kids. I wonder if its the color. Eitherways, he manages to keep JOE entertained and that works for this momma :-).

  6. awwww poor JOE, in her defence Elmo did look kind of terrifying!

    also that is a beautiful shot you took of the ferris wheel. gorgeous.
