Samuel goes to the Circus

Samuel's Uncle Daniel and Aunt Jennifer (Jen Jen) took Samuel to the circus a few weekends ago. We finally were able to get some pictures up on the blog. They said that Samuel had a great time. He especially liked the animals...and the cotton candy!! He came home with a clown hat, t-shirt, and an adorable elephant cup. Enjoy the pictures below!

This was waiting to go to the circus!

This seat is actually where fire wood goes. However, Uncle Daniel told Samuel that it could be his seat, so that is where Samuel wanted to sit the rest of the evening!

Finally, at the circus!

On behalf of Elephant the stuffed animal, I had to put this picture up. Samuel did a lot of pointing and a lot of clapping at all the different things going on in the arena.

This is a cute picture! They went with some friends from the area. So not only was it a great day at the circus, but Samuel got to make a new friend! It was a great idea that Samuel's aunt and uncle had to take him there. And we know that he will enjoy more times like that to come!

Creative Discovery Museum

We went to the Creative Discovery Museum today in Chattanooga, TN. We had a blast! It is an interactive museum for children to learn about art, music, excavating, science, rivers, and much more. Samuel had a great time, and so did we. Here are a few pictures of some of the different exhibits.


This is Samuel playing in the river area. There were boats and blocks that he could splash around with.


It was all we could do to get Samuel out of this little, red car with real sound affects.



This guitar was huge! We had the most fun playing in the music exhibit.



Samuel and David are playing music on a real sounding harp!

This was a recording room that was also part of the music exhibit. The first part is David and Samuel recording. The second half is what they recorded playing back. This room was really neat. Hope you enjoy the clip!



This was a dark room with a screen that could pick up your silhouette and make it very colorful and techno looking. This is a picture of David and Samuel dancing to the music that was playing.

Playing at the Park

The weather felt so good this past weekend, so we decided to take Samuel out to the playground. He loved it! Especially now that he can play around by himself without us having to carry him or put him on the toys. I have to admit, I think that we had just as good of a time as he did!


What is better than going down a slide by yourself? Having two slides so that your daddy can go down with you!!
