Fun Weekends

We are so lazy over here. All we want to do is have fun! That means I have a lot of pictures of our fun filled weekends, and zero pictures of my very messy house.

Ted and I have been lucky enough to have the past TWO Fridays off TOGETHER! We are getting so spoiled. Last Friday we took Jonah to day care and had a day date together. We went to see the new Harry Potter movie (I had seen it, but Ted hadn't), and then we went to Afternoon Tea at the Windsor Court Hotel downtown. It was Ted's idea, but he was the only man there! It was a nice relaxing lunch, and also fun people watching. Exactly what type of person goes to afternoon tea? #1 Birthday Parties for Junior Leaguers who I guess don't have jobs to go to on Fridays #2 Bridal parties (this one I understand) #3 Couples who have day care on fridays that they already pay for. It was a fun experience, and giving us some nastolgia about our time in Scotland.

This past Friday, we all took the day off together. We went to the sculpture garden in City Park. Jonah loved it! He just got to run around all the big green space.


That afternoon we took Jonah to the Cool Zoo, which is the splashpark at the zoo. He really had a fun time. We are planning to go back so he can do the slides next time.

We also took Jonah to the aquarium (we have a membership to the zoo and aquarium, which is why we go so much) and he discovered the slide. He is now trying to slide down everything. He kept going back to the slide over and over and pointing at it. He is getting so funny with trying to tell us what he wants. The other day he pointed at the pot of food, pointed to himself, then pionted to his plate. Like "Mom, I want some more of that for me, put it right here on my plate." He is also obsessed with animal sounds. He will say "roar" whenever he sees anything that resembles a bear. He will also bark when he sees a dog, even on TV. He has tried to imitate some other animal sounds, but doesn't do those independently. He also LOVES to dance, but we don't know where he learned all his moves. We thought it must be from daycare, but they said no, he just busts it out all on his own.

One last picture of our rainy day fun. We made a tent in the living room. When he realized what was going on, he was laughing at us crawling under there! Then he just kept going back and forth through the little tunnel. He loved it!
