Play date with the Wades!

I am so thrilled that one of my very best friends, Heather "Cooper" Wade, moved back from Seattle to St. Louis this summer.  We have been able to have several play dates and this past Friday we met up at the Museum of Transportation for a really great time with our kiddos. 

Nathan was in awe of the big fire truck. 

I got to meet and hold sweet Amelia for the first time.  She was born in October and looks just like her daddy.  Isn't she adorable?  

Tyler, Owen and Nathan were so cute sitting on a bench watching Thomas while waiting to go into the Creative Station. 

If you have not visited the Creation Station at the Museum of Transportation, you are missing out.  It is a huge play room full of fun activities for little ones. 

Train tables galore!  There are 5-6 different train tables to play with.

Nathan enjoyed playing without his older brother pushing him out of the way. ;)

Nathan was so proud he climbed up and sat on the chair by himself. 

Owen is an intense player. 

Nathan is ready to drive...yikes!

Tyler thinks he should drive first.

Tyler was having fun playing with other kids. 


Nathan wanted to play dress up too. 

I love this photo of Cooper smiling in the mirror with her sweet baby girl. 

We had such a blast!  My boys were exhaused and even after afternoon naps both boys went to bed at 6:30 that night!  Yes, 6:30!  I am telling you, you must check out Creative Station!
Tyler, Nathan and I look forward to many more play dates with our dear friends. 


  1. yay! I love this! I never thought back in college that one of my favorite thing about Kappa girls would be their cute kids, but it's pretty much the best thing. Glad to hear Coop is back in the area!

  2. Ali- HOW do you have the time to be SO up to date? Can I just post a link to your post on my blog? =) I think I just might. I can't wait to have some Ali time sans kids so I can actually talk to you. I ADORE spending time with you. xxoo
