Potty Time!

Well I hope I don't jinx this... But LAYTON IS GOING PEE ON THE POTTY. I tried not to push him to use the potty because I didn't want him to rebel. So for the last couple of months we just "tried" out the potty. He would go once in a great while. But it wasn't until Monday that he started using it more. We tired all weekend to get him to go on the potty and he just plain refused to try it!!! I set the potty clock, I went to the bathroom as he was trying, I tried treats and toys. Nothing.. But then out of the blue on Monday afternoon while enjoying some ice cream, he yells at me" MOMMY I HAVE TO PEE!!" So I rushed him to the bathroom expecting him to just sit there and be done but NOPE.. he said Mommy Im peeing. With tears in my eyes I gave him a HUGE cheer and clapping and hoot and hollering!! It was awesome, But I was afraid it was going to be short lived. Little did I know he did it again that evening. That time he was in the bathtub and told me had to go, so I got him out and sure enough he peed again on the potty!! Hooray Layton!!! So far we have been peeing on the potty and only using pull ups at night!! Lets hope it continues..soon it will be poopy pottty time.. How do I do that???

Kansas City


Curt and I headed south for some Twins baseball!! We dropped our kids off Thursday night so we could head out early Friday Morning. I let Curt drive most the way because I had such a sinus headache and pressure. I was miserable! But we stopped at a gas station and got a quick fix, atleast it went away during the rest of the drive. When we arrived at our hotel we noticed we could see both The Royals and Chiefs stadium from our hotel room. It was pretty sweet. and It was right across the street. They had one giant parking lots so we decided to buy a few beverages and head over and do some tailgating. We looking pretty silly sitting in the trunk of the car while everyone else had tents, grills, chairs, and games. But none the less, we still had a great time. Friday they told us a huge storm was moving in, large hail and maybe some funnels! Well they could not have been more wrong. The sun was shining, the air was warm and we were ready for some Twins Baseball!!! The game was GREAT! We had awesome seats!! Couldn't have got much better. By the time we got back to the hotel we were beat!!

Saturday was going to be our day to Explore Kansas City but we knew another couple coming down for Saturdays game so we thought maybe we could explore with them. We have no plans of going to the game but plans Change:) The weather was not looking in our favor that day!! We met up with Wade and Jenni Werner! and headed out to do some sight seeing. With a few minor detours we end up at a casino. The police man that politely headed us in the right direction told us of an AWESOME BBQ Join over at the Ameristar Casino. We ordered our food and HOLY MOLY was there food. and boy was it ever good. I recommend it to anyone visiting KC.. The place was called Arthur Bryants and they have joints all over down there!! Then we headed over to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. It was pretty neat!! Lots and Lots of Baseball History!! I would recommend that as well! With the rain still pouring we decide to get back so we can get tickets for Saturdays game. It was bobblehead night so we had to get there early, and stand in the rain!! We didn't know if they would postpone the game but it went on as planned. It was quite the experience!!! Outdoor baseball is the greatest despite the rain! It was awesome!!!! We were planning on hitting up the Power and Lights district but the game went into extra innings and were all beat, we sat down at the Hotel Bar and never moved. We ordered tacos from the taco bell down the road and there we sat!! We lead such exciting lives!! Vacation wears a person out!

Sunday Curt and I had the chance to sit in the Diamond Club behind homeplate! It was awesome!!!! Nothing like service at a baseball game. The weather was a little chilly so I snuggled into my padded seat with my blanket and only moved to go to the bathroom. I had hot choc delievered to me, some food, beer. Whatever we wanted they(the waiters and waitresses!) got for us!! It was nice to just relax and enjoy baseball!! After the game we headed back to the hotel with plans of going shopping. Well we turned on Summer Catch and I was out for the count! After I woke up I had NO motivation to get out of that bed! I felt like a weight was put on me! I told Curt to just go down to the bar and grill and order us some food!! I had supper in bed and didn't move for the rest of the night. Agh.. tough work being on Vacay!!! With the lights out I was sleeping and ready to head back to MN to see my little guys!!

Can't wait to go back with a group!
