Be sure to scroll down past this post, Grannie, Grand-Dan (and whoever else likes to read these posts). I posted again about 10 minutes ago with loads of pics, and again yesterday, I think). 3 updates in 2 days!
So, if you recall from old posts, I have friends from around the world thank you to being a Baby Whisperer Mom. The friends I met on there have remained in my life for all of AJ's six years!
We drove to pick up my friend, Kristi (from Slovakia), so we could hang out at the Everett Imagine Children's Museum with Kristi and her sister, Dana, and their boys. All together, 5 boys, and one baby-boy!
What fun. I cannot even begin to describe how amazing this place is. They spent about 20 minutes in the pizza parlour, alone! And this isn't even the biggest, or best, I don't think. We were originally going to meet at the Seattle one. Wow. Just wow.
The veterinary office.
Seriously, an x-ray viewer!
Left to right, Kubko (a nickname for Jakub, pronounced yakoob), Dexter, Dana and her youngest, AJ, and Hayden.
An airplane, and this does not do it justice. It was like a real plane with a cockpit!
They are watching themselves on a screen.
The water-play area.
AJ wanted no part of this.
Dexter wanted some fun!
The cockpit of the plane!
The playstructure up on the roof. It was hot hot hot that day!
Richard relaxing in the shade.
Little Teo (short for Teodore... theodore).
Downstairs you could build a ride on vehicle.
He is serious.
Kristi's two.. Kubko and Teo, and my two, AJ and Dexter.
Hayden, Kubko, AJ, and Dexter.
Me, Kristi, and Teo.
And, of course, more soccer. This is a game.
There's AJ in goal, here.
After the Abbotsford Airshow, a week later is the free Chilliwack airshow. We excitedly went!
The highlight for the boys was riding public transit for the first time ever.
Meh.. I could've stayed all day, but the boys didn't care for it. No jets, just planes. We'll have to take them to the real airshow next year. They really enjoyed watching the jets from the side of road when we stole some viewing time near the airport the week before.
