Hmmm… this trip has had a recurring theme here…
Today my sis and I hit location #3 of piano searching.
I think I played like every piano in the store. The one I liked most cost $38,000. Ouch.
Fortunately Leslie liked one that cost far less — after all, the piano is for her!
On the way home, we dropped by to get donuts. Sadly, it appears Dunkin Donuts in this area no longer carry Bavarian Kreme donuts, which were my absolute favorite! The older kids love the lemon donuts though. We bought some to bring home.
I did homework in the afternoon and also watched Xavier while Leslie took a nap. He was pretty happy crawling around and making cute baby noises. He has a fascination with eating everything.
Also he found the fridge to be quite interesting. He looked like a ballet dancer at the barre.
Finally, he crawled into forbidden territory (family room) and big brother banished him to the portacrib. Then Joshua went over and kept him company and talked to him. Xavier was quite content in the portacrib, watching his brother and cooing.
We went out to Five Guys for burgers. It’s pretty cool. You can order all your toppings online in advance. I didn’t get any pictures, though, because the lighting was not so good. Burgers are yummy too.
Then we headed to ice cream. In the car, Xavier found great amusement chomping on his sock. It’s amazing how flexible babies are!
Then he succeeded in pulling off one of his socks. Hee hee, such a look of delight!
Then he attacked the other sock with vigor. By the time we got to the ice cream place, both his socks were off.
We went to a homemade ice cream place called Mad Willies.
Big sis carried Xavier around. Baby gets lots of attention since there are 4 siblings, 2 parents, and 1 auntie to
dote on take care of him!
Nice family shot! The other boys were at gymnastics.
I tried out an ice cream flavor called Butter Crunch. It had something like little toffee bits in it. The ice cream itself actually tasted like butter! It was quite yummy and very rich. I am also super impressed that my iPhone took such a clear photo.
Then we went to gymnastics to pick up the boys. I could barely see them because they were all the way across the gym, so there are no photos. However, I took a photo of my little bundle of joy I was holding.
I can’t believe I am going home tomorrow! This trip has gone quickly. I am so sad that the next time I see Xavier he will be all grown up! I’m glad I got to see my sister and her family though!
