the day after z's birthday was a very busy one!
for whatever reason, z woke up at 5am. mommy was on duty again because daddy was sick with the cold mommy caught from her students & gave to both him & z. we had a bunch of showings that day, along with an open house, so we had to have everything perfectly picked up and clean after z's party. mommy did a lot of it the previous night, but some things she was just too tired to do then. she moved the cars out of the garage, while z was in his crib, and then brought out one of his new birthday toys to play with while mommy vacuumed & swept the garage. fun times. we had to be out of the house early - the first showing was at 9am, so we went to g'ma & g'pa tigard's house early, after picking up some caffeine for mommy & daddy, so that z could take his first 9am nap there. once z woke up, we drove to g'ma & g'pa canby's house & fed him some lunch. neither set of grandparents was home! after that, we headed over to a local pumpkin patch. after that, mommy & daddy got some lunch at the canby burgerville, before driving home, while z fell asleep in the car. we got home, only to find out that we needed to get out of the house again so a couple could see the house AGAIN at 6pm. while mommy straightened up the house, z & daddy headed out to a playground, and mommy picked them up to get some dinner at the mcmenamins pub. we finally got to go back home after that - yay! what a long long day!
on the way to the pumpkin patch, we stopped to look at the animals. z wasn't so interested... he kept wanting to touch yucky stuff on the ground, which made mommy nervous. z & rabbits.
here's a video of z riding the train. he loved it!
