Finally! A Nice Day...

We had the most wonderful day today. We started off the day swimming with friends. I was totally amazed at how much more comfortable Carter is with the water. His swimming lessons with his school have really made a difference and it really makes me happy to see him enjoy his time in the water. After a couple hours of swimming, we went out for a pizza lunch and then grabbed an ice cream cone at the local Eis Cafe. Finally the weather was nice enough to spend time outside. The sun was shining and it was warm enough to enjoy our ice cream outside.

We intended for Carter to take a nap after lunch but when we returned home, all of the neighborhood kids were outside playing. Poor Carter was standing inside with his nose pressed up against the window watching the kids. Of course we let him go out and play. He had so much fun and it was great to hear him speaking German fluently with the other kids. He rode his bike, and his car, and blew bubbles, and drew with sidewalk chalk.

We had our front and back doors open to air out the house. Since there are no screens here, Corky could just come and go as he pleased. The neighborhood kids thought Corky was so cool and followed him right into our house. I was out in the front yard working in the garden and suddenly I heard Ben inside talking to someone. I went inside and found 2 kids I've never met inside our house...following Corky right up the stairs to the second floor. Their parents were so embarassed!

After a couple of hours playing outside, we made Carter come in for some quiet time. We had friends coming over for dinner and they have 2 boys roughly Carter's age. We knew he was going to be exhausted if he didn't get some rest. He ended up falling asleep on me. So cute.
