Zoo and Date Night

Friday, the 23rd, Kaitlynn, Aidan and I met Gail, Parker, Leah, Ryan, Stacy, Sophie, Camden and the twins (our CBW Playgroup) at the Zoo. We were hoping that the rain was going to hold off until late afternoon. We were wrong. As soon as we headed out of The Living World, we started feeling sprinkles. We took cover in the Penguin and Puffin Cove (and gift shop). The rain let up and we headed over to the Jungle of the Apes. We got stuck there and were luckily under a covering. We went to the Primate House and Reptile House, ate lunch and then went to Zoomagination Station.

That evening, Dave and I went on a Date Night at a church. We listened to Michael O'Brien and heard his love story (for Jesus and his wife). There was a surprise visit from Deidre Pujols. Albert and Deidre contacted Michael to sing at the renewing of their vows. Deidre wrote a song with Michael for that occasion. It was a wonderful night of great music, great speakers and worship!

Kaitlynn was so excited that Hanna came over to stay with her. She was a little upset that Adam couldn't come.

Earth Day 2010

No it wasn't raining, yet. Kaitlynn just couldn't wait to use her umbrella.

P.A.T. Visit and M.N.O.

Wednesday, the 21st, Kaitlynn's P.A.T. Educator, Amy, came over. This was Kaitlynn's first 3 year old visit. They played a dice game that involved counting and turn taking. They did some more counting activities with cheerios. I talked to Amy about Kaitlynn attending preschool in the fall and having 2 imaginary friends. She said she thought Kaitlynn would really enjoy preschool and was happy to hear what location we are sending her to. She said that imaginary friends was very typical at this age and she would send me some information on it (since it was in the handouts for the next visit).

Later, Kaitlynn had fun playing with Lever outside.

That evening I went out for a M.N.O. with one of the playgroup's were are involved with. There were 6 of us that were able to make it out. Last year there were more like 13 of us. We had pedicures / manicures and then went to The Cheesecake Factory for drinks and desert. It was a fun night!
I was really pampered - I got a pedi and a mani!
