Avery is excited it’s the weekend again (He asks almost every morning ‘Is it the weekend?), but before we embark on more exciting adventures, here’s a little of what we did last weekend…
Thursday afternoon, we went up to visit Nana and Papa. Avery and Papa watched some cartoons, played go-fish, and shared some yummy cupcakes we brought from the Farker’s Market (as Avery calls it… aka the Farmer’s Market).
Nana let me raid her workroom of material and pick some out to make my costume for the family reunion (that’s next weekend!). I spent two nights this week working on it and it’s done!
We had a yummmmmy dinner, and left way too late – Nana and I just kept talking and talking.
Friday afternoon, we got invited up to ‘Uncle Tomato Eyes and Aunt NeNise’ (Uncle Mike and Aunt Denise)’s house for some swimming in their pool. Avery did a great job swimming with noodles and then by himself (in a lifevest), and jumping in, all by himself!! Uncle Mike was getting a kick out of watching us and Avery loved watching their new dog, Willow, fetch a ball in the pool. Avery and Uncle Mike curled up for a movie and we all had some pizza and snackies. So much fun!
Saturday morning we hit up Costco and Hannafords for groceries. Then it was time for some fun! We drove up to the Notch (the mountain pass where in some places only one car can fit on the road and big boulders are right next to the road), and did some rock climbing!
We drove down, and spent a couple hours riding the Stowe bike path.
Avery was jabbering the whole time – talking and looking at the bridges and water and racing Mimi and Grampy!
Biking is hard work, so we stopped and got ice cream!!!
And a dip in the water after our ride…
Then we headed over to the Balloon Festival! We went last year, and had a great time. So we did it again! Bouncy houses, train rides, yummy food, and some balloon watching!
We had a picnic and watched the balloons blow up…
So many colors and designs!
Once they were all up, it was pretty!
And as we were leaving, this was the view…
And the last one leaving a lil bit late went right over us!
On Sunday, we played at the house – Avery and Grampy picked veggies in the garden!
In the afternoon, Avery, MiMi, and Grampy played in the pool in the yard while Steve and I went out on the boat together!
Another fun weekend ahead of us… tomorrow I’m taking Avery to the town library and there will be firefighters and their trucks on the common to check out. Sunday, we’re headed north, to Canada to spend the whole day at Granby Zoo!
As Avery says, It’s the weekend!!!
