|Swoon + swoon again! <3|
We had a fun and busy weekend. Saturday we stopped by a friend's barbeque get together and Ayden got to hang out with his girlfriend Olivia :) After that we made a Target & Babies R Us run. We are on the hunt for a straw cup for Ayden that doesn't leak. We bought a few, brought them home, and the dang things leak so bad. All of them somehow form a suction on their own and bring liquid up through the straw and before I knew it there was milk everywhere. What the heck!? Soooooooooooooo annoyed. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
Ayden and I went to music class on Sunday morning. Peanut, a local maternity + kids' store downtown, has weekend music classes for the littles and this was our first time attending. Class starts right at nap time, so it was a bit difficult to get there in one piece. Ayden thought the whole thing was a bit sketchy at first but once the guy brought out puppets for the kids to play with he was won over.

This weekend was also Earth Day which means Alameda Park was completely decked out with booths/tents, music, beer gardens, food trucks and even a rock climbing wall and obstacle/circuit course for the kids! Hubby does circuit training three times each week so it was super cute seeing Ayden "circuit train" with the same type of stuff (geared for fun, of course). He thought the ropes were just the raddest things ever and even went back to them for a second round after playing with the other stuff.
Across the street at Alice Keck Park there's a large pond with turtles, ducks and Koi fish. Ayden made a beeline straight for the water's edge and wanted in. It wasn't enough to stand at the very edge and admire the ducks, he was wrestling us to dive in. He made friends with the most adorable little boy, Tashi, who let him play ball with him. Ayden loved the ball and was shrieking "BWAAAAH!!" every time Tashi kicked it. So cute! Future soccer star! Watch out, Beckham ;)
After Earth Day we went up to the Rose Gardens and Ayden got to meet a couple super friendly dogs and then crashed a picnic where he stole a tangerine. HA! Luckily we ended up knowing one of the picnic-ers and she didn't mind sharing.
