WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
This weekend we were quiet busy because we had an important visit, grandson Toby and his Dad !
We were very lucky at least on Saturday, as the sun was shining and we could sit the whole day outside on the terrace.
When they had arrived I gave Toby a Brussels wafel, which he liked very much. He even shared a piece with Arthur, but when he wanted to take the piece back, Arthur didn't agree and growled !
The little tractor I had bought was a great success and he drove around the whole day. It was even more interesting when I fixed a little wagon on the tractor and he put his toys in it.
Sometimes he did a little interruption in his tractor driving and played with the toys I keep here, so they seem always new to him.
Naughty Daddy had stolen his pacifier, and he fought with him to get it back !
He also watched with interest how Arthur did his business
Claudie and Pierre had brought some "Provence" toasts, which Toby had to try ! He was very disappointed when the bag was empty and checked twice !
He also discovered the big broom and started to clean the terrace, and helped me to water the plants inside the house. Mummy does a good job he is a sweet boy ! And when he has enough of something he waves "good bye". I had a lot of fun to watch him.
Just before supper he was a little tired and we watched his favorite movie on my little computer !
He slept very well despite the fact that somebody in the street started a firework at 10 pm, I don't know for what, but it was a real big firework and lasted at least 15 min. The whole neighborhood stood on the street and watched this real beautiful firework. What an event and it wasn't even the National Day it had been on July 21.
Sunday morning we woke up and it rained ! It also was rather cool and we couldn't sit outside. To keep Toby busy we all went to the "Kid's Factory" to let him play there. There were more young fathers there than mothers, I saw only two, and although it had just opened there were already quiet a lot of kids !
When you just have started learning to run, the big fun was to run up and down a little hill. Toby is not yet 2 years old that will be in November. He had two body guards and a photographer with him ! Just like a film star ! Nonno watched that he didn't run too fast.
He played for a while on all available things and I showed him the mirror where you look fat and then skinny, but he didn't really see the difference !
After an hour he had enough and climbed on the bench at the cashier, maybe he wanted to pay ! His nonno had some difficulties to convince him that we now would go home.
While I prepared lunch, Toby almost fell asleep while watching "Baby TV channel". After lunch Daddy packed and put everything in the car. Cat Arthur who had so much fun playing with Toby was watching from far their departure. And then he sat there and looked after the car which disappeared around the corner !
And before they left we had some family pictures taken. It was a nice weekend, but then we also were a little tired. I just had the energy to write this post and then we watched TV and went to bed quiet early. But before falling asleep I thought when he is older and can spend holidays alone with us ... I made already plans !
