It looks like Saturdays are turning into Mommy-kiddie outing days for us. I feel so guilty for not being able to be with them Tuesday and Thursday nights. And then sleeping half the day on Tuesdays and Wednesdays means I miss out on even more time with them. So, lately, I make sure we go do something fun on Saturdays. This last Saturday we went to the Daybreak North Shore Grand Opening where we looked at the 22 new homes built by various builders for the new addition to Daybreak. I absolutely loved a lot of the houses and would totally look into buying a new house out there except we've only been in our own new house for a year. (Maybe in another year or two.)
After looking at the houses and participating in some of the activities, we went and saw Wall E with the free tickets we got from the Daybreak Association. It's such a cute movie! Kylie absolutely loved it and Cooper sat through the first half of it. The last half, he climbed up and down the stairs and tried climbing up the back of my chair and the chair next to us. Hopefully, he didn't bother too many people.
Here are some pictures of cute stuff I saw in the houses... I never thought of hanging beadboard from the ceiling down. This is way cute and I am SO going to do it in Kylie's room!
I loved this kitchen with its cupboards, tile floor, stainless steel appliances, and dark counter-tops.
This is the view of a living room from above.
I love windows and light! How about 2 stories of windows with long drapes! Love it!
I thought this was a cute idea: framing a familiar quote and hanging it over a window. (I don't really care for the curtains, though.) We found a girls' room the same color as Kylie's room, but I have to say Kylie's bed and bedding are so much cuter. I might steal the hanging posts along the wall idea, though. That with beadboard from the ceiling down...so cute!
We got stuck in the Dr. Suess playroom complete with kiddie-sized chairs...
a ball jump area in a tub...
and a reading area. Cooper loved the car room.
Kylie and Coop had fun playing on the furry, hot pink-colored, beanbag chair. Kylie wants one just like it in her room. Do you think we could find a pastel yellow one? Cooper was fascinated with the rock walkway in front of one of the houses. He walked up and down it for awhile, until I stopped his fun and snatched him up to go into the next house. He was not happy with me.
Some of the houses had food from some of the local restaurants, so for lunch we had salmon salad, breadsticks with marinara sauce and cream sauce, pizza, smoothies, and ice cream! Yum!
The kids got to ice and sprinkle their own cupcakes for a fun kids activity. Sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle!
Pat, pat, pat!
And into Cooper's mouth we go, just like that! (He, he, I should be children's book writer!)
Good job Kylie!
So, does anyone wanna come look at houses in Daybreak? If you do, let me know, and we'll make a day of it!
