While it rained this past week, I would sneek in the playhouse while Hank was napping and work on the inside painting. Here is Hank's (practically) done playhouse!
Here is the window, it faces the back of Grandma and Grandpas house.
Where we live right now! Porthole escape hatch! My idea!!!
Mark had a great idea which was to buy some fun wood items, paint them, cut dowles to insert into the backs of each of the wood items. Then drill holes on the inside walls of the playhouse, so Hank would have movable wall decorations that he could also play with. We still need to drill the holes in the walls. The following three pictures are the playhouse wall decorations/ wooden toys!!
Mark painted the plain and train!
I painted the rest of them! I was least excited about the frog and dog, and they ended up being my favorite ones. Cute little doggie and froggie!!
Dinosaur, dragonfly and turtle! Turtles, dragonflies and frogs are from one of our favorite books, "Looking for a Moose"! It is a great book! Micheals only sells one kind of dinosaur, otherwise we would have picked a Tyranosaurus or a Velociraptor, those seem to be Hanks favorite!
Here is the inside, which is the practically done part. I need to finish the table, it needs to be painted and a leg needs to be made. The paint cans are doing the trick when Hank is no where around! I also need to finish the world painted on the floor. Which was painted solely by memory, so it is not accurate, but it is close enough!

We did the trip without a stroller, he walked almost the whole time. I picked him up to get a better look a few times, and at the end of the trip I picked him because he didn't want to leave.
Here Hank is holding his friend's (Gavin's) hand! They walked holding hands for awhile!

Wow look at that water twirl!
Hank just loved this pendalum.
This was a house, with different colors in each window.
Hank really liked this too!
I thought this was super cool, so did the boys. It was a piece of string that would sort of fly in a circle. It was connected to a motor and you could move the pattern by moving the red knob. Hank had fun grabbing the string, we all did, actually. It was very amazing.
Here Hank is looking at sand, that had like geysers or something under it, it would shoot up sand powder. This was also very amazing. Hank was leaning on a glass case.
This was a water station, where Hank played for awhile, he got his hair wet at a near by station.
This is where Hank got his hair wet, by pressing his head closely to the white ramp.
These balls were floating in the air! Hank tried to catch them!
I see you, Maa-y! (That is how he is saying Mommy)
Hank played here for a long while. The chain would go around on the bike wheel above.
The more you pulled on one side of the chain, the faster it would go round!

We like it! We actually love it! This time around we just chose a name that we could agree on, it took us a long while. There are no family ties to her name. Hank has his dads middle name, which is also Marks Grandpas middle name. But Ellie Jean is just Ellie Jean because we like the way it sounds!!
Wish us luck, after tonight, we have 16 days to go! :) For sure we will have her in 23 days from tomorrow!!! We have a C-section scheduled incase she doesn't come out on her own. We are hoping that she decides to come out. My Doctors won't let us wait more than a week past the due date, so we will have her on the 26th for sure.
