Photo Update (Last night and today)
Before Ian left for his winter overnighter with the scouts, he went to Sportsman's Warehouse to get some supplies. He bought himself an expensive hiking pack (apparently from me for Valentine's day) and Liam this handy dandy chair for $5! I was excited about the price (of the chair and the chair only) and Liam was excited that he had his own chair, FINALLY! P.S. Liam is picking his nose in this photo. The angle was just right to disguise it.
Today I took Liam to the play place at the local mall. This is really the ONLY thing to do with a tiny boy on a winter day. (He is too noisy when I take him to the library.) He had a very fun time climbing all over the stationary car, jeep, train and bus. And an even better time just people watching, or kid watching. He loves other kids. He always has a curious/serious look on his face. It took a lot of coaxing to get this grin out of him.
When Liam and I got home from the mall (and other errands), I called Ian and was surprised that he was only a few minutes away from home. He got home, played with Liam for a bit then we decided to go out to dinner. We hoped the wait wasn't too bad at T.G.I. Fridays. We got there and found out there was a 20 minute wait. I think it ended up being close to 30 minutes, but this Fridays just happens to be attached to a hotel, so we let Liam run loose while we waited. It was the perfect situation for waiting. Our boy had a great time running up and down the halls and going up and down the stair wells. Here are some highlights of the waiting.
Ian and I wanted to try the 3 course meals for $12.99. Quite the deal for an appetizer, entree and dessert! I got the "grown up mac and cheese" with Liam in mind to share it with. It was excellent. So much so that Liam finished what was on his little plate and took that grown up fork and reached over to my dish of grown up pasta! I was floored that he actually got some on his fork each time reaching like he was! I had to laugh! I guess I'll have to teach him table manners later. For now, it's endearing having my little one stealing food.
