|Awesome stroller static|
Once McKye saw the little Zoo Train, he could care less about any of the animals.
|His "golden ticket"|
|This is him sad we can't go again.|
|Bye train :(|
|We also got to see sea lions at West Ed too where I bought a new swimsuit.|
|We mostly just ate at Macdonald's so the kids could play (lame I know, but just more do-able),|
but we did manage to go to Red Robin, which I totally miss.
Day 2: Swimming
|Aaron went on the slide all by himself...constantly. |
Every time we went back to the hotel room, he'd start striping and would bring us his bathing suit.
Ben would put on his bright orage shirt, and McKye would announce/ask, "Daddy go to work?"
And we'd go looking for a new park. And we all know what Chelsea does at the park...
|Loved how "Northern" the pine trees made this look|
Saturday afternoon after visiting an old friend, who just had a baby, it was off (with our "new to us" stroller) to the river valley. Three hours later we emerged.
Love that river valley so much!
I miss it.
That's the same walk that help put me into labour with Aaron.
I love the curvy paths and foliage.
I love the bridges
and the unexpected vistas of the city.
And man do I love my new stroller!
|Aaron was in love with this playground...sand and water! He could have lived there!|
Feeling a little hit-by -a-truckish, I tried to lay down in a rela bed for a few minutes, while Ben answered work emails. McKye was watching Treehouse (which hes never seen before because we even though we have cable we watch all our carctoons on Netflix..he was very upset they didn't play back to back Max and Ruby's), Levi was still sleeping, and Aaron was in the shower (containment is key sometimes, no?)
Little did we know, Aaron had somehow snuck my 4 day old iphone in with him!!!!!!!!!!
Even if we had rice to throw it in, I think it was toast. Soggy, soaked, toast.
I was starting to feel like it was getting to be home time.
But I'm so glad we stuck around.
a) so I could play with my friend Rachel (who's the best)
and b) because I got to hang out with these two amazing girls:
We went out to grab some groceries and ended up talking in the car til 3 am!!!
Yup elevator light and a late night make for a pretty flattering photo eh ladies???
I was sooooo tired on the way home.
But it was sooo worth it.
Really the whole trip, was at times exhausting and a lot of work,
but I think we managed some good memory making (or at the very least soem photos) and so
it was worth it.
