Since the Surgery...
Okay, it's Thursday now. We really have done a lot since the surgery on Monday!
So, here's a recap....with pictures!
On Monday, Mom, Allen, & Mario were here....
So, since we were home from the hospital by lunch-time (a late lunch, but whatever...), we made pizzas!
And....during naptime, I took Allen & Mario to a local outdoor skate park.
On Tuesday, Mom's cold was full-blown! She wasn't feeling up to par when she got here, but wasn't necessarily sick. By Tuesday, she was SICK & it was time to go home. But, before that, we took my car in for an alignment & tire rotation. She took the guys & Gage back to the park. Gage made a mad-dash for the playground before Mom even reached the play area. He'd already gone down the super-wet slide & fell in wet mulch. He was wet, cold, covered in mulch, and ready to go. So, a few minutes later---they were back!
Mom, Allen, & Mario left on Tuesday.
On Wednesday (yesterday...), my friend, Tera, & I took our little ones to the Dallas Zoo. We decided that we'd ride together, and just rent a double stroller when we got there. To note: the double strollers do NOT have very much storage at all! The storage on that thing was super-sucky. Also to note: pushing back nap time for the sake of a zoo trip is not that bad....but, doing it for a 1.5 year old, and for a 2.5 year old, and then strapping them into the same stroller---not such a good idea.
Gage cautiously checking things out...
Gage kissing a statue... "it's a pig! it's a pig!"
Playing in the kids water area....
Gage rode a pony named "Bubbles"
The kiddos got an Icee (Gage's very first Icee!)
And...then we saw this:
"What's he doing, Mommy?"
"Why he is just doing dat?"
"Why's he up dere?"
........"Um, Gage, they're DANCING!"
[and I am just sick & twisted enough to photograph it!!!!]
So, remember what I mentioned about pushing back naptime, and putting two kids in the same stroller? All was well for a while....but, after a while---the fighting began. "Don't make me stop this stroller! I will pull it over!"
Gage's favorite: the Cheetahs!
Mommy & Gage as we were getting ready to leave...
...but of course, we had to ride the carousel on our way out!
He chose to ride the Cheetah, of course!
It was a great day!
