Late again with the weekly update, but that’s how we roll around here. It’s been a mostly quiet week, and Cole and I have begun to step it up with our late night partying game in early preparation for our teenage years, so I’ll just jump in with the pics, okay?
For Mother’s Day, we had a picnic in the park!
And then we went to Hoyer’s for ice cream – Cole shared his ice pop after only a little teasing.
Those pretty pink cheeks are the result of the fever I woke up with on Monday.
Rather than spread germs, Mommy and I went for a walk and skipped Aardvarks.
I took an afternoon nap…
Which meant at 10PM, I was ready to play all night!
We spent a lazy morning on Tuesday with the iPad.
Then we headed off to the library for a little while; Cole got to play on the computer!
And we played with the toys together.
The library started out as a school house, and they still have one of the 90 year old desks.
On Wednesday night, I stayed with Coach and Grammy Boo while Mommy and Daddy took Cole to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Mommy claimed they went for Shavuot, but I think they just had a gift card and didn’t feel like cooking…
I fought a nap, but the nap won.
Thursday night was the season opener for the Rockland Boulders.
While Cole was busy on the playground, I stole his juice. Shh!
There is a new little “train” that circles the stadium this year, and it was the highlight of Cole’s night.
All right, we’ll give that tiny fuzzy goslings are kind of cute, but the adult geese? Ick. Mommy and I stopped to yell at the ladies feeding them – seriously? You didn’t see all the signs about the overpopulation?
Friday’s walk was full of wildlife. Any ichthyologists in the house? The fish were all thrashing and splashing like crazy in the shallows… Why?
You can’t *really* tell, but this is a rare sight – I was awake!
After our walk, we went to Coach’s house to meet up with Aunt Angela, and I took the opportunity to drive Cole’s car while he wasn’t there.
After we picked Cole up, we had yummy lunch at Stir Crazy.
Back at Coach’s, I had important work to do on the disconnected keyboard.
I also supervised Coach and Cole’s youtube viewing.
Friday night we went over to a friends house for a delicious dinner and bonfire. Summer is coming, you guys!
Saturday was awesome. First, Cole woke up and requested “springy mack-uh-nonies and meatball sauce.”
An odd choice for breakfast, but tasty nonetheless.
Sunglasses: check. Stroller: check. Guys: check. Cole was ready to go!
We didn’t set out with a clear plan for the day, but we ended up going to the Turtleback Zoo, and it was So Much Fun.
I wore my new Elmo shoes. I love them.
Mommy is always attempting to take nice pictures of Cole and I together. This probably won’t end up on our Hanukkah card this year.
Another holiday card reject.
Fact: The bear turned around and walked away about 2 minutes after this photo was taken, and Cole announced to the full viewing room, “Look, now we can see his tushie!”
Mommy is afraid of birds, so going into the aviary and buying the little stick of food to feed the budgies just proves how much she loves Cole.
I was a teensy bit tuckered from the zoo, and I slept through dinner!
We ended the evening with a trip to Trader Joe’s. Mommy recommends these coconut chips. Yum!
