Now with pictures!
Today was gray and drizzly and chilly, so it was perfect for taking R to the Children's Museum. It was recently renovated, and this was our first time there since. R had a blast. There was a new climbing structure that was at the center of the museum and reached up several stories. It has what looks like lots of Fritos inside - wavy, carpeted platforms. R made his way up that thing so quickly, it was a little scary, especially because we couldn't really go in there with him. But he also made his way back down pretty quickly, which was cool. I was afraid he was going to get stuck. We met our friends there, and R and his friend A especially enjoyed the room with balls that you send through loops and chutes and such, and the two different water-play rooms: Boats Afloat and a bubble room. It got a little nutty in there after awhile - I guess every parent in the Boston metro area had the same idea as us today - but we still had fun.
Later, R and I played with blocks and fun foam, and we had an exciting game of hide-and-seek. (I love R's version of hide-and-seek, where he tells me where to hide and then counts backwards from 5 before coming to find me. He also keeps saying, "Mommy - where are you?" until I answer him.)
A is coming down with something: he's got chills and a fever and a sore throat. :-( R was very sweet and prayed with me for his daddy, and kept saying, "Good night, Daddy! I hope you feel better! You need to get lots of rest!" without any prompting from me. I hope that this bug doesn't get R and me, too.
Tomorrow, after church, I'm heading to the airport to pick up my friend Stef. I haven't seen her in a gazillion years, so I'm very excited to see her and for her to meet R.
Well, off to bed soon! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
