Woodlands Trip - Week & Weekend #2

The rest of our trip to The Woodlands was spent visiting friends all over Houston. I forgot to mention that before Tony left, we drove to our friends Johnny & Katie's house to see them and their new little girl, Emma. She was so sweet and tiny! We went to a park where Cole played on the slides and was on the swing forever. Then we went out to lunch at a place near their house. I didn't take any pictures because I was too busy holding Emma! :) Cole didn't love that idea and wanted me to hold him too!

We spent one day just chilling out at my parents' house. We went to the park, played in the pool, etc. Then our first visit was to see Sarah and her three kiddos, Ryanne, Rhett, and Evelyn. We went to the "raccoon park" where the kids played and ran around for a long time. Cole and Evelyn are about 4 months apart in age and were little buddies.
Then by some miracle we got all 4 kids to pose for a picture! We got a few cute ones too!
Then there were some silly faces, of course.
After our play time, we went to Chick-fil-a (or "chicken place" as Cole calls it) for lunch. The kids played in the play area for a long time here too. It was Cole's perfect day!
The next day, Cole and I drove out to Katy to see Alyssa and her son, Grant. Grant is almost 1 1/2. We went to their house and played with cars and trains, walked to a park, and when we got too hot, headed out to lunch at Panera. We had a great time seeing them and tried to stay as long as we could stretch it because we don't see them very often.
This is how Cole looked pretty much every afternoon or drive home from our play dates!

On Friday, we visited with my old teaching partner, Leila and her son Bryson (6 months). Cole got into everything at Leila's house...dumped the dog's water on the floor, broke an egg that he got out of the refrigerator, got into the dog food, just to name a few! Sorry Leila! Bryson's not crawling yet, so it showed Leila what she had to look forward to. :) We also had lunch with my Dad, who was back in town from work, and my Mom at Jason's Deli before heading home for naps.

Cole got a few new cars this week too. Here he is playing with Jeff Corvette and eating yummy Trader Joe's white cheddar popcorn.
We spent a lot of time in the pool, and Cole warmed up to the idea A LOT compared to where we started. He loved playing in the hot tub because he could walk around the seats. He would even get in by himself, put his face in, blow bubbles, and let me push him under water towards the side. We got him to go into the big pool more willingly. He was jumping off the side to my Dad as well! Saturday we played in the pool for 2 hours! It was night and day compared to the weekend before.

Cole made one more trip with my Mom to the park when I was out running one morning. That's one thing (of many) that's so nice about The Woodlands. There are parks with every neighborhood that a great for kids of all sizes.

Here we are excited to fly on the airplane! Having his own seat was awesome and he watched a movie and played with his cars perfectly! He did so well on the flight and in the airports!
