So for Mason birthday I decided to take him to the children's museum of Atlanta. I am not to familiar with the area so parking was a pain. Since I had been to the aquarium before I decided to park there and just walk, parking was still $10 but they did take debit. I am really bad about carrying cash on me so next time I need to make sure to stop by a ATM before because right across the street I could have parked for $5. Masons favorite part was when we first came in there a ball pit/contraption. He loved gathering the balls and putting them in the different holes they go in. He also loved the train table of course.
So a couple of weeks ago we went to pick our own strawberries with our church play group. I had no idea we had a farm right here in town! Mason had so much fun and I think he ate more than he picked. Next we will definitely take old clothes because its a dirty job n maybe go when its not so hot. N/e enjoy our pics and I put the link for the farm if you live in town or are close to it and would like to go. Omg and I have to say they have the best strawberry ice cream ever!

He would not stop eating and he learn the word "strawberry" this day too and kept saying it all day

April 25th some of my family and friends joined me to walked for March of Dimes. This was the first year I was able to participate and I was so excited about it. I created a team "Mason Kai" in honor of our son who was born at 31 weeks. Our team was able to raise $200 which im sooooo proud of! I know other people raise a whole lot more than that but I am just stoked about what we raised because I never thought I would even get close to $100. Okay team next year its $300!!

I took this pic and now my sis is in it
I made tshirts that had "Team Mason Kai" on it along with a picture of Mason. I made Mason and my nephew a shirt that said "Im a Preemie" with each of their pics on it.
The one thing that did not go well was the weather. The whole week the sun had been out and it had been beautiful but on Saturday it decided to rain so the walk was done indoors. It was still a lot of fun but im sure it would have been more fun outdoors. My family made me laugh when we started walking. I was "walking" and they where speed walking thru the whole thing. They definitely got their exercise in. We all did finished our 4 miles and they all beat me to the finish line!
