School looked differently this week!
We figured out a way to do most of our week ahead of time so that two of us could go on vacation! We headed out bright and early for the sunshine!
H. waiting at the airport. It was about 6 am. at this point and we were both still very tired.
The city from the air
Enjoying a hot chocolate while waiting in Seattle airport
He learned a lot about airports, planes and how everything worked.
He found it all very fascinating!
And took lots of pictures!
Tired mom and son on the plane!
H. enjoyed taking pictures of some of the cloud and land formations as viewed from the air. He found it fascinating and kept his nose glued to the window. He kept squealing over new things. The man that sat next us was very entertained!
We made it! While waiting for the car to arrive, we took the chance to take a picture with a large palm tree that he found fascinating!
He ate lunch and vanished! I went to look for him and found him passed out on the bed!He was exhausted!
He had fun, relaxing and getting to know the grandparents.
We went to a trip to the beach. It was just in time for our study of birds this next week!!! This little rock formation was covered with them.
Reading the sign about the birds!
There was a place to look at them up close!
The beauty of the ocean!
All ready for some fun!
And he had a blast! My toes buries deep in the warm sand were very happy as well!
Oh, come on….who says big dark glasses aren’t cool?
He played for a long time.
He worked hard pulling leaves and vines with these strange bulb looking plants on the ends out of the water and used it to build a small fort which he made into a smiley face.
His pile! Grandma commented on how nice it was that he could keep himself busy working hard!
A bird that came to visit!
My beautiful grandmother!
There was this neat outdoor shower to spray all the sand off!
Having fun in the pool
He was experimenting with flips!
Lounging in the sun!
We went to explore the fruit trees and garden below the house!
Look at all those avocados!
Last dinner together! My wonderful grandparents spoiled us!
Again, bright and early, ready to head home!
We met all the family in a nearby city. We were planning on going to a theme park, but we got rained out and had to come up with other fun things instead.
Playing with my nephew!
Enjoying breakfast at the hotel!
Waiting for a table
When we finally got one, we all squished into the booths and enjoyed a fine meal!
It was a fun week! The boys went to some classes at a music store and learned all about pianos. We went shopping and spent a lot of time visiting and eating. It was good to go and good to be home! We are back in the rhythm of normal school again, until my next trip!
