On October 5/6 this year, my sister and I took Adam for the whole weekend. We had a lot of fun! After picking him up from his parents’ place, Adam and I enjoyed a leisurely drive down to the city where he had a chance to catch up on some reading.
Yes, he is reading a toy catalog, and yes, it was engrossing. It kept him occupied for at least 30 minutes!
After arriving at the apartment, we dropped our stuff off, picked up Sarah and headed off for the zoo! We soon came across an empty turtle shell that would be the perfect photo op….or so we thought.
We neglected to tell Adam that he was supposed to stop and look at us for a picture. He crawled right through – he was on a mission.
He got to see lots of animals on our little zoo trip:
He even got a chance to see the elephants before they left on their long journey to California.
Sarah was excited to take Adam on his first carousel ride – he wasn’t so sure in the beginning…
but he quickly warmed up!
We’re looking forward to next year when we can take both Adam and Ezra to the zoo!
On Sunday, I braved the crowds and took Adam to the Science center.
I took him into the space exhibit where he pointed to the sign below and asked me what it was. I took one look at what he had pointed at, pulled out my camera and asked him to smile. We then headed over to the next exhibit with the question safely evaded :)
His favourite part was jumping and running over the projected image on the floor.
Then it was pizza for lunch and the end of Adam’s weekend in the city with his aunts!
I admit I put the ponytail in, I wanted to keep his bangs out of his eyes and didn’t think I should be the one to cut them. I think he looks pretty cute!
