Play Dates at the park

I love play dates at the park, they wear Gavin out and make him take a wonderful nap, which he does anyway, but, he has fun, and it's nice to get out in the gorgeous San Diego weather.

Gavin was laughing at this zoo keeper's hat.
July 18


Yesterday, our housing was sponsoring a event at Chula Vista Nature Center, so since it was before his nap time and we'd never been there, we loaded up and headed out. He had a good time running around and seeing all the animals. He got his face painted (which he did great), made a tiny potted plant, made a surprise for N's care package, petted the sting rays, watched a magic show, and saw sea turtles. We had a nice time enjoying the hot weather. After 5 minutes in the car, he was sound asleep.

Long Day..

So, today, I met up with my Aunt who is in town from Idaho. Gavin and I headed out there after an appointment that he had. We had a good time. Her friend had horses and they were so pretty and Gavin didn't even get scared. I was proud of him. We hung out there until I knew traffic would start and then headed home. He even did great on a 45 minute nap all day, hardly any tears!


I've had a good time this week hanging out with Gavin, he met a "little" friend and we go over there a couple times a week and he plays with the train table and the kids just hang out while I get my "mommy to mommy" time in. I am also in some mommy groups and we are always busy doing something, so we stay busy!

We are in double digits for N's return and are so excited!! I've started a "welcome home" banner that I still have to paint and let Gavin paint on it, so we are just counting down the days until we know that they all arrive safely.
