The plan was to finally have a family outing to the dog park. It's all I had been talking about for weeks and I was particularly excited to see Ian with the hundreds of dogs that were sure to be there...Oh, and Polli would probably have fun, too.
We headed out after nap and lunch, and wouldn't you know it, I forgot my camera! It is the first time in almost 6 months that I haven't had my camera at the ready 24/7. I've never been so disappointed in myself. You'll just have to take my word for it that Ian and Polli both had a great time. Ian pointed excitedly at every dog and got up the nerve to approach a couple of them. He's interested, but still a little bashful. One woman got upset when he tried to approach her dogs, saying... "Watch your child. These dogs are known to nip." Well, then don't bring them to an off leash park!
This is the best shot I could get of his black eye. It got a little worse on Saturday, but is looking better already today.
Shawn & Ian were wrestling on the stair landing... Ian is signing "more".
Pushing dad on the beep beep.
Curious of the water. He was soaked after this.
Too cute for a caption.
I can do it myself!
Ian made a fun game this morning out of taking his socks off and asking me to put them back on...over and over.
Can't you see how fun this was?
Ian & Polli chasing each other. Another fun game that cost us zero dollars.
