Two of Carter’s biggest fans came to visit last week! Scott had his first week of school and was headed down to the Bay Area, so Mimi & PopPop decided to come help me out. It had nothing to do with the fact that they wanted to love on sweet CJ. Our week was packed full and come Tuesday morning our house was quiet again. Apparently too quiet for my child who discovered his screeching capabilities over the weekend.
We were fortunate enough to have some amazing weather. So we went to the park to swing on the swings.
CJ wasn’t a huge fan. Once again. He liked the swings the first time. Since then: “Meh. Get me out of here!”
We rode on the merry go round. Which apparently is very fun after a few minutes!
We went down to Pike Place Market to get some fresh produce and flowers. We wound up with a lot more than that. The market is dangerously delicious that way.
Thankfully, we hit it up in the morning before the major crowds showed up.
The Copper River Salmon season began the day mom & dad came into town. The market was full of the delicious fish. We picked some up from the Ballard Fisherman’s terminal later in the week to grill.
We went to Ray’s Boathouse to soak up some rays while taking in the views of the lovely Puget Sound. Carter is really enjoying sitting in the highchair at restaurants now. No more infant seat, he’s a big kid now!
We picnicked at Greenlake with some of our friends. I think I enjoyed my last picnic with a stationary child. The other mommas were chasing their children to the lake and beyond. Crawling and walking and running will come soon enough. For now, I love my sitting munchkin!
We went to Fremont’s Sunday Market to pick up baubles and treats!
We were silly and ate our socks. That kid likes when he makes his Mimi laugh.
We wandered through the arboretum and stood under a “snowing” cherry tree.
And checked out the amazing Azaleas, Lilacs and Rhododendrons.
All along Azalea Way!
We showed off our teeth! Two more are making their way in these days.
And we blew bubbles.
Lots and lots of bubbles.
We tried to catch them, but didn’t have that much luck.
Most of all, we laughed. We had a lot of good times with Mimi & PopPop in town.
They love to spoil CJ in the best way possible. Lots of hugs and kisses.
And always willing to help CJ learn something new.
I left out the weeding, planting, chair fixing, nail pulling, curtain installing, map hanging, cooking, shopping, and voting they did too. My house hasn’t had this much fun in ages! Those are two efficient people!
Thank you for the visit, mom & dad. The time you share with us up here is so precious. You made our week without daddy a lot more fun than it would have been otherwise! Love you both!
