A few years ago, I crocheted his sisters each a poncho...and he's taken a liking to them. What could be more convenient than having your blankey with you at all times? Add Emme's pink sunglasses...and a bright yellow soo soo and Ryder was all decked out to go to play with Grammy!
The girls always loved to bake when they came to visit..so I thought Ryder might enjoy baking cookies also.
He was more interested in building trains with the dough...than actually making cookies. But he became quite possessive with the completed cookies...reminding me repeatedly that they were 'mine'.
We spent the morning playing with cars...and tractors...and farm animals...and having a tea party on the floor...and soon it was lunchtime. The sun was shining (for a moment or two) so we took Grandpa with us...and went to the airport to check out the airplanes and have a bite to eat.
Our local airport has a wonderful coffee shop famous for it's homemade pie. Barb has been baking their pies for almost thirty years...and flight itineraries are often built around a stop for pie in Chilliwack. My standing order is the spinach salad...and a wee piece of pie!
Yesterday watching planes definitely took priority over eating...the highlight for Ryder was watching a helicopter take off and land repeatedly. At one point he fell off his chair...and scrambled back up in a big hurry. It was only then that I realized he is usually in a high chair.
They brought him a bowl of ice-cream for dessert...he's pretty good at sharing!
How is it that kids can spot these machines from a mile away...and I never notice them? Well...yesterday I did!
One last look at the airplanes and our playdate came to an end. We dropped Ryder off in time for his noon nap...carrying a poncho on one arm and a bag of cookies that were 'mine' on the other. What fun!
Until next time,
