He saw Planes, got new Legos, went to the Gateway Children's museum, Provo Beach Resort, and a bounce house place... to name a few of his excursions. He also went on a gazillion golf cart rides, threw rocks in the river, went to a luau at Aspen Senior Center, and had lots of trips to the swimming pool. I think he mentioned he got to have two scoops of ice cream almost every night too. The kid was in HEAVEN.
Meanwhile, I got an entire week to devote to just Catie & Ryan.
We had a lot of fun. Here is some of the stuff we did. I also posted a lot of photos on Instagram if you follow me there.
We made sparkly princess puppets
There were sparkles all over my kitchen for awhile
We did salad spinner art
We made fairies
We practiced our ABCs and read lots of stories
We did manicures several times
We went to Fairyland with Kevin
It is the perfect place for toddlers and babies. Andrew would've probably been bored... Catie was in heaven! I love going here every two years or so... more often would be too much for me.
Sliding down the Jack N Jill hill
and we went to Fentons - yum!
We also just had a lot of downtime and playtime at our house. Catie loves to snuggle, so we watched her favorite movies while Ryan napped.
They also goofed around together and I just watched. Ryan loved all the attention he got from Catie.
I hosted a Girls Night Dessert night at our house for about 10 friends and we ate an insane amount of delicious treats brought by everyone and had fun chatting.
I also hosted a YWs healthy recipes activity at our house one night.
The only downside to the week was the Ryan was teething and slept very little and Catie woke up a bunch at night too. All the stuff we did plus little sleep made for an exhausting week despite having one less kid to keep track of!
Andrew flew back home with my mom late on Thursday night. Our house is so much louder and crazier now that he is home, but we sure missed him!
Once I get some photos I will need share a few snapshots from his special week with his grandparents. He had so much fun and I really enjoyed having extra time to cuddle and give attention to just Catie & Ryan! I am so grateful for my thoughtful parents who took such good care of Andrew and made sure he had a blast!
Now I am ready for a nap!
