I meant to do a post last night, but I fell asleep!
Sunday was spent having a yummy breakfast with my parents before they headed home to Southern California, then visiting with Grandma Kathy at her house. Drew was so happy to be there playing with her cars and dinosaurs and watching videos. Our friends Andrew & Katie came by after the As-Giants game and we had pizza with them and their sweet baby, Chloe. The kids were content to push buttons on the video games there, even though we didn't give them any quarters to make the games actually work. Then it was back to the hotel for baths and medicine and bed.
Monday we all got up and got ready to go do "something fun." Our idea was to take them to the Palo Alto Children's Museum and Zoo, but we didn't mention it in case it was closed. It was a good thing, because it is closed on Mondays. We went to the park instead and watched some diggers doing construction on a nearby lot. Afterwards we took Drew to the hospital for his wound check, which took about one minute after 45 minutes of waiting. The PA said it looks great, but to continue keeping it covered. Then we dropped off a gift for baby Giovanni who has been at the hospital for more than two months and needs to stay until after his second surgery in August. We had lunch at the cafeteria, then brought Ava back to the hotel for her nap and Dan was able to get some work done. My friend Liz and her two kids came to visit all the way from Sacramento and we went for a walk to a nearby park and let the kids play for a while and we visited. She brought us a delicious dinner and it was so nice to eat some real food since we've been having so much restaurant food lately.
Today we are going to try the zoo again and then my friend Julie is coming to visit and we plan to have a mini spa day. I can't wait! I'll try to be better about taking pictures, but here are a few I took in the last few days.
