It's becoming routine. Hang out with friends on Saturday night. On Sunday, go to KFC for lunch, and then to Kennedy Park to ride on the train and the merry-go-round. Then I get to stay at home with the kids while Jenny goes shopping for clothes. When she gets back, I go to Walmart to buy formula and diapers.
Russell finds the idea of yet another train ride hilarious
Despite the familiarity, Punky still gets excited about the train ride
Still, we had a good time this weekend. Saturday night's barbeque dinner at Alameda neighbors (and Jenny's longtime friends) Julie & Gordon's house was a smashing success. We gorged out on ribs, sausages, hot dogs and salads galore along with chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream for dessert. Our kids loved hanging out with Julie and Gordon's kids, Brandon and Kyle. It also helped that Brandon and Kyle had lots of toys--hundreds of them in a living room and dining room converted into a playroom. I wish I had brought my camera to show you Julie & Gordon's house. It's a kid's dream come true.
We try to take the kids out to a park every week, and so we went to San Leandro on Sunday because I had some leftover tickets for the train ride at Kennedy Park. Russell seemed almost bored when riding the train, although he clearly enjoyed watching the train chug by every 10 minutes. Punky was just Punky. He likes everything as long as we're there to hold him.
