First on our schedule was taking him to his first "big movie", Wall-E. It was all fun and games until the candy was gone, but who can blame him, after all, this movie was about robots - ICK!
After the movie, we went home and made pepperoni pizza. He was a great help at smushing the pizza crust. (And, some of you get a peak into our teeny little 1950s kitchen. Don't you love the original Kitchen Aid oven? It was one of the features that charmed me into this house.)
I love this picture for two reasons - one, Brian is doing such a good job of entertaining. And two, yay for early literacy. Am I a primary teacher, or what?
We have a playground across the street from our house, so I definitely couldn't pass up the opportunity to take advantage of that freebie :)
Bathtime with Vito. I'm not sure who got the better bath, but this war lasted for about 15 minutes.
Wildbird Walkabout at the zoo. Now, I've never been a bird fan, and frankly, I find them quite repulsive. But in the interest of our fun day, I put my grievances aside to feed the birds from a stick.
No zoo day is complete without finishing up with lunch at Dairy Queen. Actually, this was his choice - trust me! But, again, I put my own interests aside and indulged the boys in a meal of steakfingers and Texas toast and gravy. And actually, I hate to admit it, but this is a secret pleasure of mine, too.
After that, it was time to go home for a nap. I'm not sure who needed it most, but we all three sacked out for about two hours. And, rest assured, that's as close to parenthood that I plan to get for quite some time.
