Busy Bee Weekend

We had a busy weekend. On Saturday, grandma and grandpa came back up to get grandpa's new motorcycle. They brought uncle Brad and cousin Jeremy with them too. While the guys went to pick up the cycle, Liam napped and I talked with grandma. Eventually Liam woke up and was eager to play with grandma. He showed her how well he can pull himself up to standing and how he could crawl on his hands and knees. Once the guys returned we all went out for a late lunch at Culver's. Liam got to play in the highchair for a while, then grandpa held him while everyone finished up their deserts. It was all too soon that our guests had to head home. Liam always seems sad when people leave...our home was quite and boring again.

Today we had plans for outdoor activities. BUT mother nature was against us and it rained all morning. So we decided to take a road trip to Canton, Michigan, to the IKEA store. We were all blown away by how big and busy it was there. Liam joyfully rode around in the kart looking at all the people and neat things. Sean and I demonstrated considerable restraint and left with spending less than $30. Not surprisingly, everything we got was for Liam. We got him this cool fabric tunnel to play in, as well as a wooden stack'em toy and some small stuffed animals. By the time we got home it was sunny and over 70 degrees...we contemplated getting our kites out and going to the park, but we were all too tuckered out. The weekend goes by so quickly!
