As reported earlier, we had lots of plans this weekend.
Friday night we had dinner at Frank’s aunt & uncle’s house to celebrate his uncle’s 77th birthday. Frank’s parents were also there. It was fun for me because it was enough people to pass around Jake that I didn’t have to supervise him much, but it wasn’t as much fun because when I was supervising him, he was constantly drawn to the oodles of knick-knacks all right at baby level, or the completely open stairs (their house is a raised ranch). But all in all a good time with wonderful people.
Saturday we spent the day in Connecticut, visiting our friends Dave & Renee, and their twins who are nearly two. Their daughters are wicked cute and sweet and are just the right age in between Jake and Lane that Lane could have fun playing with them, and Jake didn’t get bullied by them, mostly, and all of Dave & Renee’s toys were age-appropriate for both my kids. 😀 We had pizza and wings and Mike’s Hard Lemonade and just sat around and played with kids all day. Again, a good time with wonderful people.
Today we went to the in-laws’ for dinner. Frank invariably ends up trying to fix something on their computer for them. Today, it was getting the new record-player-that-also-hooks-to-your-computer, so-you-can-make-MP3s-from-old-records working properly for them. We also had a Candy Land marathon… oh, me and/or my mother-in-law must have played two dozen games with Lane. She loved it though. (For anyone potentially in the market, Target has the Dora the Explorer version of Candy Land at 75% off – or at least they did two days ago. My Target had dozens of them they were trying to offload.)
We’re usually not nearly this social. 🙂 It’s been a really fun weekend, but I’m a little drained. I need to go to bed.
But, I’m like a little kid — we are expected to get quite a bit of snow in these parts, and it’s already started. I love weather. Hopefully it will be voluminous enough and fluffy enough that it will mean lots of play time for Lane and me. Yay!!
