Ike had a play date this weekend at Imagine It! Children’s Museum. Our buddy baby Ethan joined us. Although Ethan will be turning one in just a few short weeks, I guess we will have to stop saying “baby” Ethan. Both of these boys are getting so big! I was on my own for this play date, so all I have are crappy blurry photos taken with my phone. Managing to corral Ike in a huge open play ground and trying to take quality photos with a real camera is much more than I am capable of.
Ike seems to have a thing for driving. Thinking about it for a little while, I guess I should have picked up on this by now. He’s always enjoyed sitting in the driver’s seat on my lap and pretending to drive. See? And he had a very loud toy with a steering wheel that he enjoyed in passing. Just long enough to make it start up with all the lights and noises that went on forever. I consigned that toy at first chance.
But at the museum, there was a really Mini Cooper with the doors removed (and I assume some other non-child-safe parts) to sit and play in. He loved it.
Ethan seemed to be a happy accomplice to whatever Ike was plotting.
He loved it so much that he had a royal fit as soon as I took him out to give some other kids a turn. He made it his mission to drag me back to that car all afternoon.
We tried a truck.
We tried a tractor.
He was somewhat intrigued at the pretend food area. He chose fruit cocktail, a piece of asparagus, and a taco as his meal.
Mostly he used the asparagus as a fork though.
