On Saturday morning I had forgotten that they were having a benefit at Johnson's Farm. The Littlest Rose Foundation had put together a charity event to help raise money for Charlie, a boy (little brother of one of Tyler's friends) with neuroblastoma. Anyway, they had moonbounces, a dunk tank, sand art, face painting, balloon animals, live music, and a talent show. We didn't stay too long, but we bought shirts and Tyler did sand art and the moon bounce. We also ran into my friend Jeff and her wife Missy, along with their 2 adorable little girls. In these pictures Missy was 1 day away from her induction with baby number 3. Can you believe it? She looks great!
WE walked to our car to leave and it started raining. I had told my boys that we would be going to great adventure right from there and I was really starting to second-guess myself. However Jason fell asleep before we even hit the first traffic light, so in my mind the trip would be worth it even if we never got to step foot in the park. He napped the whole way, even when we stopped at burger king for lunch. For the record, Burger King is still nasty.
We hit the outlets first. Got another pair of shoes for Tyler and Jason (both of them only have one pair of shoes, unless you count crocs). There we also some wonderful deals at The Children's Place, and The Disney Store as well. Anyway, the boys insisted on riding this coin-operated ride, even though we were minutes away from an amusement park. Go figure.
Then we were finally off to Great Adventure. The weather held out and we even got a chance to finally see the Wiggles-themed show. The boys loved it! Tyler sang and danced the whole time. Jason was a ltitle more leary, but did do the hand motions for "rock a bye your bear".
Sunday was more of a low-key day for sure, but you need those every once in a while. Plus, weather wasn't so hot to begin with. The major highlight, without a doubt, was the fact that Jason took a 75 minute nap in his crib, for the first time in 8 days!! I had realized that I had really (not intentionally) increased my dairy the past couple of weeks, as had Jason, and after some thinking I stopped consuming it on Friday. So the fact that Jason napped in the car on Saturday and in his crib on Sunday might be a mere coinciddence, but for now we're dairy free again! After naptime we had a brief library trip and borrowed a movie. Then we picked up chinese food, ate dinner, and settled in for "family movie night". Tyler really enjoyed "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs". Unfortunately I was antsy and ended up cleaning out Tyler's closet instead, in prepartion for the big move (the switching of bedrooms in conjunction with my stuff arriving from NC).
