i had such fun with last week's instafriday post, i'm linking up with jeannett again to show you our week in instagram goodness! and why is it that our life looks so much more fun when it's in instagram? magic, i tell you. magic.
we went to an AWESOME park last friday. similar to the all-access sprayground we visited, this park is run by our county and is built for children of all abilities. there are full-backed swings for children who need extra upper-body support; swings you can ride in with your wheelchair; a carousel that is recessed to ground level so it is accessible by wheelchair; and every play structure has ramp access. so cool. the ramps and padded, non-slip surfaces on the ground make the park perfect for toddlers, as well. needless to say, choi boy had a total blast.
he hopped in a plane with his favorite co-pilot, his beloved kate.
cb also had his first carousel ride. he was really nervous at first,
but once he realized how cool it was, he shared a reaction that rivaled his infamous train ride scream.
cb and kate ended their visit with a romantic tire swing ride.
kate gives cb this look a lot...it's so cute. i call it her "pleased as punch" smile. :)
look at them coyly touching hands! so smooth.
(all of that probably could and should have been a separate post in and of itself, defeating the purpose of instafriday, but it seems i am a lazy blogger. oh well.)
i love seeing my parents as grandparents.
they absolutely adore choi boy and he is quite smitten with them, too. oh, and he totally has them wrapped around his little finger.
the yummy (and so-bad-for-you) dinner (chilli cheese dogs and cheese fries!) we had while visiting "brigadoon". see the handy dandy wipes in the back? i tell ya, that's one of the best things about being a mom: you always have baby wipes on you! and knowing how clutzy i am, this is a true bonus.
the other day, i pulled the laundry out from the dryer and as i was taking wet laundry from the washer to put in the dryer, choi boy ran off, pushing the basket of clean clothes to his room. when i found him, this is what he was doing:
what a little helper! (who was really making more of a mess than helping, but is so super cute, it's okay.)
my sweet cousin offered to babysit so the hubs and i could sneak off and watch HP7.2
we were SUPER excited. can you tell? ;)
it was SO good and probably the only HP movie that met my expectations from the book. i cried like a baby throughout the movie.
yes, i am *that* person.
we brought our own snacks to the movie. yes, we are *those* people.
it was green tea hodduk. YUM. (from a mix with instant yeast, baby. take that, delayed gratification!)
it is HOT here.
oh, 97* doesn't seem too bad? how about this was 9:00 in the morning?
sorry mom, i'll clean and dust my car tomorrow.
one of the things i miss most about nj/nyc is the pizza. thankfully we have an amazing neighborhood pizza joint that really is almost just as good. delish! pizza is my desert island food. that and bagels and sushi. apparently, my desert island has a buffet.
choi boy has come to really love drawing. or rather, "drawing".
he has such concentration while he works on his "pieces" and could do it all day long. so sweet.
we're working on one thing, though...choi boy insists that once the crayon tip has been used and the crayon part has become even with the paper part, it's "jee-jee" and needs to be thrown away.
i don't really blame him. who likes flat crayons?!
