I promised some pics from our recent visit with my parents, and I can't believe I've not yet found time to get them posted. My dad always takes lots and lots of pictures (has ever since I can remember) so it's hard to choose. Here are some of my favorites -- thanks, Dad!
We took a lot of nice strolls while my folks were in town. Having excellent areas to walk is definitely one of the bonuses of our new apartment!
Visiting the Wishing Fountain on one of our walks...
And where it's good for walking, it's good for triking! BJ never did show too much interest in his tricycle (though he's asked for A Real Bike for his birthday) but within the last two weeks BB has discovered the joy of three-wheeling.
Cooking with Giki
Laughing with Pop-Pop
Watching Loony Tunes -- the kids are both big fans of Bugs Bunny these days and were beyond tickled to discover that Pop-Pop also enjoys the cartoons. Especially Rabbit of Seville. BB has taken to singing, "Whaaaaat would you want with a waaaaabit? Can't you see that I'm much sweeter? I'm your little senoriter...."
Visiting Happy Hollow Zoo (with two kids who are obviously anxious to Get Inside The Park!)
Yes, we visited again -- we went both on Monday and Wednesday of preview week! The goats were especially entertaining this time.
Riding the carousel -- this pic totally cracks me up. Like mother, like daughter, apparently it is Serious Business, this merry-go-round stuff!
On the roller coaster -- BB's first time, and alas by the end she was not nearly this pleased about the experience. Her first words as it came to a stop: "I am never doing that again!"
Riding Danny the Dragon:
Walking to the Farmer's Market
Waiting for a fresh batch of Kettle Korn
Visiting a favorite park
Saying goodbye to S and BJ (they were headed down to southern CA to visit S's mom)
Eating ice cream at a favorite local spot
Was their trip really just a week ago??? Already feels like too long since we've seen them! We miss you, Pop-Pop & Giki!
