Passed out after our first day of swim lessons. Their teacher, Emily, lives less than 2 miles away.
We have some cool Duplo building sets (from Emily's family I'm pretty sure) where you follow the book and make different animals one piece at a time. After finishing them all, Scott went and got a regular book and tried to copy the pictures. "I need a brown block, Mommy, and a white one and this color (points)."
My mom took the kids for their first sleepover together. We both had different things to do that night, so the next morning we went out to eat before John went to work and my mom dropped the kids off. We tried a cafe nearby for the first time and it was pretty good, but not really worth repeating. We're trying to test out the local places, though, so cross that one off the list.
Reading well together. They love search and find books, but they memorize them and get really fast.
"I wanna holdit baby!"
"My choo choo needs a new battery. I got my screwdriver, so I can fix it."
My aunt sent John a birthday package, so we brought it to his work and stayed to have lunch with him. We waited in the a/c and I fed the boys while we waited for John to come out.
We went back to San Pedro Square and tried the two most alluring restaurants, both Italian. Fresh pasta and margherita pizza. Both were delicious and we want to try other dishes at both places.
We went roller blading afterward at an outdoor rink during their free summer night.
I was at Karen's when Sarah was in town and took the kids for a walk to get them out of the house for a little bit. Olivia wanted to be buckled in the stroller the whole time. Annabel was happy to be in there, too. So the opposite of my kids.
Scott wanted to hold "the baby."
Which meant Jonah needed a turn, too.
Another day Katie came down, too, and I took a bunch of the kids for a walk.
3 of the 4 2012 cousins.
We went to the dollar kids rerun movie one morning. Scott wanted to hold hands so Jonah wouldn't get lost. He's very into parenting lately.
Jonah looking so comfortable during his nap in Grandma's pack and play.
Scott was devastated that his milk ran out and I wouldn't take him to the store to get more.
You can only see Scott's face, but they're smiling at each other. He loves babysitting.
Having an older playmate is fun, too.
Between trucks, trains and Duplos, they keep themselves busy.
Another train track. I like to see how many variations I can do using every piece.
Reading the Cheerios book. Scott reads to Jonah like we do with them, asking what color and how many and what's that called.
