Last weekend we decided to go visit with aunt Ali in Saint John for the day – I figured we should take advantage before all of our visits are on skype.
The weather stank (rain in biblical proportions) so we were stuck inside for most of the day. We made the most of it though.
Aunt Ali and cousin Aaliyah.
(Hey Ali … this is what four kids looks like. You in?)
Aaliyah is at the age where she watches everything and soaks it all in. She was watching Oliver on the tablet and kept touching the screen, pulling away, and then looking at Oliver. He showed super patience by just laughing and continuing to play. (Why can’t he show even an ounce of that patience with Emery lately?!)
After lunch we went to an indoor play place to blow off some steam. After checking in and getting the baby settled, I went around the corner to the area for the bigger kids and met Oliver who screamed, “I am having TOO much fun!” with a huge smile and a wild look in his eyes. And THAT is why I adore these places.
Emery loved it too. He has no problem keeping up with the bigger kids. It’s as if he doesn’t even realize that he’s younger and smaller. Not much slows him down.
