We went to drop something off at a friend’s house and were rewarded with fresh-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies.
Jane enjoyed them immensely.
Adam stopped napping a few months ago; partly because he no longer desired and partly because we arranged it. It got to the point that, when he would nap, he wouldn’t want to sleep until 10 or 11pm.
Unfortunately “no nap” meant no time for me to relax or get anything done. So, as a New Year resolution I decided that Adam would have “quiet time” every day. An hour in his room where he can play or read books. Unfortunately quiet time = nap time and nap time = late bed time. The solution is having quiet time earlier in the day before he is in danger of falling asleep. Lesson learned.
Over the last year or so, several bounce house places have opened in the Rochester area. These are Adam’s idea of heaven. He would play there from open to close (and has come close). The day after Christmas we took Adam and his cousin to “Bounce It Out” for the day.
They had a great time and were sad to leave. These places are amazingly fun for kids, but where you really get your money’s worth is here:
Admission to Bounce it out: $8. A quiet 1 hour drive to Buffalo. Priceless.
I’m obviously a little behind on my posts (as usual). We had a great New Years Eve with good friends and good food. The city of Rochester does fireworks every year at 10pm. Shortly after the party got started almost the entire group piled into cars and headed downtown to see the show. One of our friends works in a downtown law firm and had access to one of their 15th floor conference rooms. It was perfect for viewing the show; and a whole lot warmer than standing outside.
After the fireworks it was back to the house to consume copious amounts of food and play Rock Band into the wee hours of the morning.
These three were having a private party, complete with cheese doodles and IBC Rootbeer.
Thanks everyone for a great party. It was so fun to ring in the new year with our friends!
