We spent Saturday with some of Sean's friends from high school, Crystal, Jayson, Joel, Lauren and her husband Justin. Crystal has a three month old Boston Terrier puppy so Colin had a very good time playing with him. This was also the first trip where Colin finally warmed up to Jayson! Certain people tend to make Colin more nervous than others and Jayson was one of them, but not anymore! Here are some pictures from Saturday and Sunday morning before we left. Colin even slept well, one little wake up when we were being a little too loud but right back to sleep without complaint.
Jayson, Lauren, Justin.
Colin plays the Wii with Sean and Jay. "Strike!"
Colin wasn't too sure about the puppy. He really enjoyed throwing Dexter's toys and having him fetch them but those teeny puppy teeth were a bit intimidating.
Dexter, in full flash.
We also have some college friends in Massachusetts as well. On Sunday we traveled to Sarah's house to meet her baby Syler, and Elaine met us there. This time Colin napped all the way there and literally woke up as we pulled up to the house. Colin had a lot of fun playing with Syler's toys and he even borrowed his high chair. Colin made another doggie friend. Max was very interested in Colin's scraps, except the fruit of course!
"Hey kid throw me a bone"
Colin gives daddy the eyes. "Please can I have a cookie?"
Syler- such a happy and easy going baby!! I thought I had an easy baby, THIS is an easy baby.
Sarah, Syler and Elaine.
A good time was had by all! I think we scared Crystal with the amount of stuff we brought with us for a simple overnight. It isn't always the amount of time spent, but where we are going that determines how much we bring. Here is a sample of our packing list this for this trip.
Pack & play, portable high chair, baby gate, eating equipment (plates, forks, spoons, sippy cups), food- cold bag (milk, yogurt, sandwich, cheese), food-room temperature items (crackers, Annie's mac&cheese, jammy sammies, dried fruit, fruit cup, banana, clemintine, etc) cd player and bedtime cd, white noise machine, baby monitor, bag of toys, books, clothes for Colin, clothes for S&B, diapers, wipes, toiletries for S, B&C.
I'm sure I'm not remembering something that we brought, but that should give you a general idea. Our car was pretty full, but nothing compared to our week in the Poconos last summer.
