We've been visiting our favorite parks,
riding bikes a LOT,
and taken a ride on light rail.
That train ride was, of course, followed by a visit to Snook's Candy store right up the hill. How could we pass that up?
Which, of course, was followed by a different, much shorter, yet equally exciting train ride.
The train and zoo are a packaged deal with these boys. You can't do one without the other.
When I've had Luke to myself, I've tried to carve out some time for things besides errands. This little boy was over the moon when I asked if we could go on a lunch date to Taco Bell.
And, if we are running errands, we've found ways to make it a little fun too. A while back the boys saw this zombie shooter in a catalog, and Luke just about jumped out of the cart when he actually saw the "bazombie" shooter in a store.
After a thorough inspection, we left him at the store, but that "bazombie" was the talk of the day, especially when Luke reported to Noah what we'd found.
Daily I think about how grateful I am that these two have each other.
Their play and interaction isn't perfect, but it's usually pretty sweet and definitely entertaining.
I am so grateful that I'm feeling good to be able to squeeze in some simple, fun moments while it's just the boys and mom...for a few more days.
