Afterwards, we walked around the Farmers Market adjacent to the library... but let's be honest... there aren't any local farms in Vegas. I highly recommend the farmer's market if you like paying more for your produce and enjoy the walking around in the heat. Still, it was still fun to look at all the overpriced items. Henry was asleep by then and all that walking around wore the kids out. I stopped at the grocery store on the way home and picked up popsicles for the kids to consume after they awoke from their nap.

I am not crazy about Disneyland but maybe that's because it's not linked to my childhood. Sara loves Disneyland and I am sure if we lived in California we would have a season pass. Maggie was an inch shy of some of the rides like Splash Mountain but I think she enjoyed chasing Tanner and Chase around more than any of the rides.

It was horrifying to watch but I knew it could have been fatal. The fact that he didn't even get a bruise or scratch on his head is nothing short of a miracle. Only a few hours later he was playing with his sister like nothing had happened. The grocery store attendant was very helpful. I had to file a report, which felt like an application for the worst-parent-of-the-year-award, but at least I wasn't rushing off to the hospital. We are all very grateful Henry is still alive and healthy.
PS. Yesterday, I shot pictures of him falling onto the bed. In light of this story in might not seem like fun but unlike the event at the grocery store, Henry was contagiously laughing which put a big smile on my face.

But rather than focus on what we don't do on Fridays... I am turning it into Field-Trip-Friday. Today we went to the Bird Viewing Preserve. It was fun. I felt like a speed walker coaxing a turtle along. Henry crawls faster than Maggie walks. I try to turn everything into a race, so that we can actually cover some ground. She is a good runner but when she is walking everything becomes a detour. Anyway, we had a nice picnic with the birds... or as Maggie calls it a "nic-nic".

Henry prefers to feed himself, while Maggie still asks to us to spoon feed her. Baby food is almost out of the question since nobody wants to clean up that mess and Henry refuses to be spoon feed. Occasionally he will let me feed him yogurt but in general he would rather be eating grapes and frozen peas and anything else he can wrap his small fingers around.

It has now been a few months of no pull-ups for Maggie. I never thought I would be so happy; it's one less major expense and one less cleaning project. She really enjoys her new independents and often refuses any help unless its a difficult button. Okay, there are still a few cleaning projects but to have only one baby's diaper to change is like being in heaven.
