friends, musical instruments & Tigger

Friday, Parker & I spent a fun day visiting our friends, Michelle & Bella, who just recently moved to a beautiful home out in Minnetrista, MN. Though it was a little bit more than "a few miles" from Apple Valley, I really enjoyed the drive out there. The leaves have started changing their beautiful shades of yellow, orange, red & brown, & every lake we passed was sunkissed & glistening.
I love that Parker is such a great little traveler; anytime we go anywhere, he is just happy as can be pointing out & squealing at all the new & fun things we pass on the road!

Sweet Bella was overjoyed that Parker came out to play! She made sure she let him know it by giving out lots of hugs & kisses! :)
This morning, Parker & I drove over to the Apple Valley Library for Kidsfest. MacPhail Center for Music was hosting a free event for the children. Inside the conference room of the library, the company had set up different stations for the kids to explore the different types of musical instruments, to color & create shakers, & to sing songs! At the door, an instructor handed out free music cds for the first 50 people...I was excited to get one for him! Parker's favorite parts of the event were getting to sit & strum the guitar, to beat the drums, & to put stickers on his shaker, & to color with the big crayons. It was a great time to practice our sharing skills as well!

Our friends, Sharise & James, came to meet us for a few minutes too! James enjoyed getting to play the trumpet; it was so cute watching his little face as he made the instrument sound!And on a totally different note...our little man has been running around all week with his new friend Tigger! This little orange & furry friend is helping prep us for our trip to Disneyworld later this week! Parker has been running over to the mirrors in our apt & cracking up at the sight of Tigger on his back. So cute! :)
