Two weekends ago I worked, which meant Nate was a single stay at home dad. He and the kids had a lot of fun. They spent the weekend at the zoo, going to the library, and some time at the pool in our neighborhood. Last weekend Nate was again a single dad as I left Friday morning to spend the weekend in Des Moines. We had our girl cousin get together. My sister-in-law Sara was even able to make it up from Springfield, MO. We were so glad that she was able to join us. It was a fun weekend of relaxation and lots of laughs.
As for the kids, they have been busy at the park, the zoo, the Children's Museum, and daycare. Ava is still loving her new daycare. When Grandma asked her last night on Skype if she liked it she replied, "It's so awesome I can hardly believe it!". We love the changes that we've seen in her since starting there. I wish we would have found them sooner! Grant on the other hand isn't completely sold on this place yet, but is getting used to it. He's now eating, and took a 1 1/2 hour nap there last Wednesday. He still cries when Nate drops him off, but when asked about his friends at daycare he smiles and tells us their names. I think he enjoys his time there, it's just the the drop off is still a bit rough (although getting much better).
Grant's hand is healing nicely from the fire pit incident. The blisters are now gone. His hand looked pretty raw earlier this week, but the new skin is coming in nicely and his hand looks pretty darn good.
The rest of our weekend looks nice (and hot). Nate is currently golfing. We're hoping to make it to the pool this weekend, get together with neighbors for a party tomorrow afternoon/evening, and perhaps have a BBQ on Sunday. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
Nate and I were able to enjoy a beautiful night out at the Twins game Tuesday evening.
