We've been having a lot of fun the last couple weeks. Brad's mom Brenda came down the week before last for the entire week. She came down to watch Connor because I was supposed to take the Professional Engineering Exam on Friday (16th) and Saturday (17th), but I found out the day after she booked her tickets in March that I can't take it until October this year. Sorry Brenda. But we were glad to have her and she seemed glad to come anyway!
On Monday when she first got in, Brenda, Connor and I decided to head north to Solvang for the day. Brad had to work. :( We had fun looking in the shops, eating yummy Danish food, and feeding Connor his very first aebleskivers from Arnie's! He LOVED them!!!
We had a great week of home cooked meals (thanks Brenda), a clean house (thanks Brenda), clean laundry (thanks Brenda), and a few days to sleep in (again, THANKS BRENDA!!). Connor loved being able to spend more time with his far-away-grandma.
Connor loves ice water! Who'd have thought?
It should come as no surprise that Connor still loves to hang with Dad. He shares Brad's love for electronics (notice his interest in the phone - it's actually his because we got new phones a little while ago. He loves it!!).
Notice the spots on Connor's pants?? He is a messy after-eater. He doesn't get any food on him while he's eating, but after he's done he always spits some up and gets it all over his clothes. Great.
I just love this happy face - my little monkey.
The last two Sundays we had some friends, Jared and Aubrey and Connor's gf Addie, over for dinner. Addie is only 4 hours older than Connor! We made some yummy dinners and played the new Super Mario Bros. Wii. We love having them over. Unfortunately, they will be moving to Arizona soon, Jared is taking a new engineering job there. We are so sad!! At least they'll only be a half a day's drive away. It will give us an excuse to get away for a weekend every once in a while. We are going to miss them!
