Today, my friend M and her son J came over for a visit. Cameron LOVES "J" so he was uber excited. On a side note, he also loves J's name and keeps suggesting it for baby brother. His doll baby has already been named J. It's so funny. Anywho, we had a nice visit. M is such a good friend so I'm happy we live close now and can actually hang out on a regular occasion and not once every few months or what not.
We just hung out at the house and then ventured out to lunch which was slight chaos. We walked to our town's center to go to a pizza place. I figured that would be the easiest with the little ones. It's definitely kid friendly but dealing with a not yet 2 year old and my 3 year old gets a little bit crazy. Oh, kids, you've gotta just sit back and laugh at how crazy they are.
We've been having these outrageous thunderstorms and sure enough as soon as we went to leave the pizza place, one started. So we went back inside to wait it out. Cameron had already been asking "to go home" immediately after finishing his pizza so it was lots of fun to wait out a thunderstorm *said sarcastically*. I think we were back here just in time to get Cameron into nap since he was at the verge of a melt down. After getting him into nap time, he was sleeping within 30 seconds. It's amazing what sleep can do.
In other news, here's some pics' of the living room/sitting room. A lot of people have said it's not possible to maintain an "adult" space with 2 young chilren but we do it anyways. I love having a formal space. Cameron has already been "trained" to appreciate what I call "oooh aaahs", these are things you can't touch but you can look at and say "oooh aaah". You'd be amazed at how fun it is for a child to say "oooh aaah". :-)
