Gideon woke up at 9 AM this morning! Score!
The temperatures this week are telling of a soon-arriving fall season, and Gideon’s sandals are not going to cut it much longer. So the first order of business for morning errands was to do some shoe shopping. Forgetful little me did not get pictures of him strutting his new kicks, but these were the final selections.
Gideon is obsessed with shoes. He relates them to being outside, so it’s no surprise to us that he enjoyed being in the shoe section of the store. He was indifferent to his “dapper shoes”, but fell in love with his “run and play shoes” from the moment he saw them. Gideon probably liked the bright colors. He did not want to take them off either, which tells me that they were pretty comfortable.
After a few more stops we came home to have a quick lunch. I got Gideon some tuna salad at the local meat store, and the whole way home he kept saying “tu…na!”. He loves tuna.
We all took an hour long nap, and woke up refreshed and ready to prepare for our evening festivities. We had the immediate family over for a steak dinner courtesy of Daniel the Grill Master, and a fun time was had by all. I didn’t get any pictures today. So sad. But I did capture my boys writing a card for grandma.
We ate a delicious dinner and cake, enjoyed live cello performances from the kids, and just spent time being together. A perfect way to wrap up a busy Saturday.
