while Andrew tried to hide from his camera-crazy aunt!
taking frequent water breaks to re-fuel after all that hard work!
Then we went back inside so Matthew could play with one of his favorite toys - the 'exer-saucer'.
The pizza then arrived, so I put Matthew in this little seat that mom gave Kevin & Julie. Can't remember what it's called, but it's up there w/ the Baby Bjorn in my list of gifts to give future parents! Matthew watched,
while Andrew ate. After I took this pic of Andrew he said - 'no more pictures, Lisa.' I respected his wishes and put the camera away so he could eat in peace, with no flashing cameras.
It was Matthew's turn to eat, so Andrew went back to watching Peter Pan while I gave Matthew his bottle. He looked pretty sleepy, so I started singing a few of my favorite songs off the new Jason Mraz CD (which I highly recommend if you are into that kind of music). Matthew seemed to enjoy them.
So much so that he fell peacefully asleep.
Both boys were in bed & sleeping by 8:30 so I was able to watch Michael Phelps achieve his first Gold Medal in the 400m Medley (I'm an Olympics freak, FYI).
All in all, a wonderful night. I am so lucky to live close enough to be able to babysit for these 2. Matthew really got the bulk of my attention, so I am hoping to do another 'Lisa and Andrew' day sometime this fall! Will probably take him to that new bookstore I discovered (Wild Rumpus) and out for some ice cream at Sebastian Joe's.
Hope every enjoyed this beautiful weekend!
