iPhones are so dangerous! I ended up with over 800 pictures from the eight days we spent with my parents. Oops! I narrowed it down, then narrowed it down, then narrowed it down some more. But I still think it’s too much for one post. So, here’s part one of two.
The drive to the airport was interesting. Jace was super excited initially, then we dropped Cuervo at day camp, got a cheese roll up for a snack, and hit the toll road. And Jace promptly passed out – pinwheel in hand and all!
The drive was fine, but as we were sitting in the cell phone waiting area (we got there 2 hours early due to nap schedules), my car started to get warmer and warmer. And warmer. Jace couldn’t sleep because it was so hot. Turns out my a/c broke. Sigh! We hung out in the airport for a few hours (hurray for elevators and escalators), then had a very loud and windy drive home with all the windows open!
Car shopping wasn’t initially on the agenda for their visit, but it worked out well enough. And Jace loooooooves riding in the backseat of the car with Grandma. LOVES it. Between Grandma and the new push button light that is directly above his car seat, the car is becoming Jace’s favorite place to play.
He also continues to be addicted to the iPad. He skipped his nap one day, so I figured he could play on the iPad while we made dinner. iPads destroy melatonin and keep you awake and all that, right? Well, about two minutes later, Jace was sound asleep with Elmo singing at him at full volume.
He was cranky when we woke him up for dinner and bath time, but a tub full of bubbles helped cheer him up. He’s so cute. He likes to fill his hands with bubbles, then clap. The bubbles go everywhere! Then he waits patiently while Adam wipes off his eyes, then he turns to me and wipes off my eyes. He’s so sweet!
For the most part, we had pretty nice weather while Grandma and Grandpa were in town. We triked to the pool a few times (Jace really likes his trike!). Last year, Jace wasn’t walking during pool season. This year? This year he’s walking all over the toddler pool! I love that the pool starts at 9″ and ends at 2′ deep. It’s Jace-sized!
One of Jace’s favorite pool activities? Give Grandma and Grandpa an arm workout! He loved being dipped into the water. He would laugh and scream and then say “ghen!” as soon as he was back on the deck!
