We had made plans the night before to take Great Grandaddy out to lunch in celebration of Father’s Day. Unfortunately the morning didn’t start off quite as expected laying our best laid plans to waste. Connor wasn’t feeling particularly well so he went down for an early nap. Grannie and Ryan went out for a walk. I have no idea how far they went but she must have really tuckered him out because when he got back we put him down for a nap, too, and they both slept for an unheard of 3 hours straight. Luckily it gave me plenty of time to make a quick card for Great Granddaddy for Father’s Day.
After lunch Ryan gave the wrinkled card to Great Granddaddy, and he opened his gifts. The boys played around the house for a while. Connor who had perked up some still wasn’t feeling too well and was acting sleepy so I decided to put him down for a 2nd nap. Ryan came in the room with me and tried to crawl into the pack-n-play where he sleeps. I put him in thinking he would be screaming to get out within seconds. Instead he layed down and rolled over to go to sleep. I was really shocked. They slept for another almost 2 hours. Mommy took a really nice nap, too.
After naptime we took the boys to the park. We had stopped by the park the day before to check it out and it was underwater. Had the boys been a little older it would have been a kids play dream - a really cool water park. I was a little surprised that it had dried out completely overnight. We sat in the shade and had a snacktime picnic before heading off to play. As usual once we got to the playground the boys were more interested in the "non-toys" than the real ones. The boys really had fun playing with the tiny little rocks on the playground. After some prodding we did actually manage to get them up onto the play equipment where they found the chimes. They made quite a racket and danced along. Ryan had a good time sliding down one of the slides, too.
Continuing our tradition of the night before the boys got their 2nd bath in as many days as Connor managed to smear quite a lot of mac and cheese in his hair at lunch time. This time, Grannie got to be the guest bedtime story reader.
