1. Playing dress up- today we bought a cape and mask. He has construction and fireman helmets, his pirate costume, and random other stuff.

2. Books- picture is a few of his favorite library books (I’ve updated his Amazon list with ones he’d like).

3. Water- such a water baby! Today we had playtime at a park has a (chlorinated) play stream for kids, right next to a sand pit and playground.

4. Musical instruments- lots of playing his guitar and drum recently.

5. Anything related to the movies “Cars” and “Cars 2”.  It’s quite the obsession!

I need to go through his toys and weed out some of the ‘baby’ ones. I think he’s getting bored, especially with all our indoor time due to the constant 100 degree weather we’ve been having.

Also- he starts preschool in 1 month! I got him a red (his choice) LL Bean backpack and a few new clothing items as he is growing out of his 3T clothes!

Completed 1 of the 2 summer reading programs Wes is in his year. At this point, it’s really on Steve and me to read to him, but he participates by picking out the books. He loves reading and going to the library!

His certificate and the book he got to pick out as a prize:

Here’s Wonderscope’s website:  http://www.wonderscope.org/   It’s a wonderful museum full of hands-on activities for children.  I bought a year membership when it was on Groupon or another one of those daily-deal sites, it would normally be $18 for us to go and I got a pass for our family of 3 for $40 for the year. It will definitely be used a lot during the winter!

Wes’s favorite room (for now):

 A new activity- Builder Boards:

This is an airway where you can change the path and make scarves shoot out:

Wes the artist- look at that long curly-ish hair! 🙂 :

Dr. Wes, there is a little clipboard telling about the responsibilities of a doctor and he calls it a ‘catalog’.

These are pictures that I took at a local park, Steve was my assistant and helped with Beast-wrangling.  My subject wasn’t really into being photographed and was quite disappointed in the lack of a jungle gym, slides, and sand.
