We’re home!! And I am going to go kick my feet up and relax after a long car ride. It’s amazing how exhausting a 5 hour trip can be with even one very-well-behaved toddler. Not bad, just exhausting. I seriously don’t know how my friends with multiple toddlers do it. We must be the biggest wusses on the face of the planet.
However, we had a great weekend. Here are a few snippets:
On the way down, I brought some shiny, silly-eyeballed stickers to give Ali something new and entertaining to play with. I put them on her hands. But apparently this one was of a Piranha variety. . .
Saturday, we went to the shrimp festival. It was fun, but hot and crowded! Here is excited Ali at the beginning:
Ali and Mommy in the middle. . .And Ali resting in “froggy position” at the end.
Still resting, and glad we’re about to be done!
This was my only purchase at the shrimp festival. I had a pair of earrings like this that I got in junior high in Monterey, California. I loved them, but they broke after a couple of years. I have never seen them again until this weekend. So when I saw them, I just had to use some of my birthday money and get them. They hook into your normal earring hole, and then go UP your ear, like so. . .
Kitty bought some toys for their house, including a Mrs. Potato Head. Ali loved it! I definitely need to find mine somewhere at home. . .
So. . .Ali apparently still has some progressing to do in the area of spatial reasoning. She was convinced that she wanted to sit in this chair.
This happened over and over. . . .
And don’t ask me why Leo was reading the side of the wet wipe box.
Ali became attached to Kitty’s pink fuzzy blanket, and liked toting it around the house with her:
And Saturday night when I told Ali to put up her shoes, I totally couldn’t argue when she put them here:
I have more from today, but I’m going to go rest. I’ll post tomorrow.
Oh – and in case you were wondering, my efforts to convince myself that yesterday was the ninth of October was a complete success!! I fully believed it and had a wonderful birthday all over again! Now we can go back to normal dateage – it is officially the twelfth.
