Once Daddy got up, Mommy got ready and Nana and Papa picked her up to go to the KH remodel. Much to Mommy's disappointment there were so many volunteers that there was nothing for us to do (I think Nana was a little relieved). Papa picked up a shovel and dug a ditch, while Nana and Mommy wandered and talked and tried to help with food. We did do a bottled water run which made me feel a little better.
Last night we went to Nana and Papa's for dinner. We were sitting on the porch while the puppies were eating their dinner, and
Allen kept saying "Puppies treats." So I thought he wanted to feed the puppies their dinner. Nana handed Allen a handful of their food, and he started to put it in HIS mouth! One of us swatted his hand away, and he just burst into tears. He was so embarrassed. He was inconsolable for at least a couple minutes. And he was grumpy for longer than that. But then, Allen "walked" the puppies.Then we went for a longer walk ... with Allen in the stroller.
Gigi made chicken cutlets (YUM) and tomato salad, and Nana made broccoli. It was a fabulous dinner, but Allen threw a little tantrum because he wanted cookies. Unlike Nana, Mommy and Daddy held their ground, and after what seemed like an eternity, Allen suddenly asked for chicken, and ate quite a bit.
After Allen finished dinner, he grabbed "bunny" (a rabbit figurine that Papa bought for Nana in Venice). One minute he had it, the next it was gone. We searched ... under furniture, in the trash can ... it turns out he put it in a drawer (which he had pointed to, but none of us were paying attention). Papa was so relieved that "bunny" was found, and not in the great unknown with Nana's ring and phone.
Since Allen ended up doing such a good job with his dinner, he was allowed to have "epic" (ice cream) for dessert. He thoroughly enjoyed eating his "chocate epic" while watching Dora.
I desperately want to continue to blog about our adventures today ... including a morning at the beach AND Allen's first answer at book study ... but I'm about to fall asleep. So I'll have to write more tomorrow. Stay tuned!!
