Happy Tuesday! The last two days have felt exceptionally long with a little one who has struggled to nap from a cold and coming off a weekend not only with our favorite guy but with a surprise guest as well! My mom (grandmasita) came to visit for a work trip on Friday and ended up being able to stay with us for the rest of the weekend! Friday evening was her work event so we got to tag along and experience it with her. The company she works for (Idaho Power), is celebrating their 100 year anniversary and has had a traveling historical exhibit set up in different locations throughout Idaho this year. Our town happened to be one of them and they opened it up to the public at the Idaho Museum of Natural History on the ISU campus. I was not only impressed by the amount of work that went in to this exhibit but also how "kid friendly" it was! Liam had a blast exploring it! We're proud of you Grandmasita!
This exhibit had buttons AND lit up so of course it was a favorite!
There are times when Nic takes my breath away when I least expect it and this was one of those moments, doing what he does best and playing with our son ...
I know this next photo is super grainy because there was very little light but I love that excited expression on his face and clapping! After checking out the exhibit, the museum had a discovery room for kids with these fun magnatiles Liam was loving!
"Mr. Rhino, do you have a heartbeat?!" ;)
After Liam ate about 15 crackers and had all of this pent up energy, we took him out on the campus to run and play. I'll give you one guess what he ran for first ...
A giant STICK! ;)
"Peek-a-boo! I see you!"
On Saturday we all got some exercise at the Wellness Complex in the morning and then my mom and I got to have some girl time while Liam napped! We went shopping and found fun fall decor. When Liam woke up we all met up with Nic's mom at a new Japanese restaurant in our town called Fuji. We had a hibachi style dinner where they cook your food in front of you. Let me tell you, the entertainment was just as good as their food and we will definitely be going back! Liam loved watching the flames rise higher and higher and he blinked every single time our chef banged his utensils on the skillet in a pattern. haha It was the best! After dinner we went for a walk and ended up at the playground.
While Liam went down the slide a few times we all tried not to gag on this horrible dead fish smell that was radiating throughout our neighborhood! Bleh! We think that the farm fields next to us had been fertilized with some type of fish product earlier in the day. Thankfully the smell is gone now!! After we put Liam to bed we watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 and all loved it. In my opinion, it was just as hilarious and fabulous as the first one!
Sunday we had to say goodbye to Sita but hope, despite the fish smell, she will come back and visit us soon. :) Hope you all had a great weekend!!!
