A Date With Marme

While Dear Daughter tended to her newborn and the packers and movers for the big adventure to California, I got to have a bit of very special Cullen time. Kate and I met halfway to make the child exchange and Great Grandma came along for the ride.
(but really to meet baby Bennett)

 In the past 30 hours we have:
Played Cars
Played animals
Had fun in the bath
Practiced hitting the right buttons in the elevator
Walked to and from the shop several times
Played chase with the uncles through out the apartment
(sorry folks a floor below us)
Took a walk along the Potomac River

Dropped 2 uncles off at the airport and saw lots of planes
Made friends with lots of people in marme's "tower"
Fixed a few cars at Papa's shop
Had a special lunch at Trolley Stop in Ellicott City, MD
Learned to launch ruberbands with the index finger
Had just a few forbidden snacks

Made a trip to the Choo Choo Store
(alias for the toy store)
Had lots of cuddle time on Marme's bed
Learned how to get the door to the apartment open to the hallway
(thank goodness for the upper dead bolt)
Rearranged the lower cabinets in the kitchen
Found rocks to throw in the river

and totally disregarded nap and bedtime rules.

Then we packed up and headed to the farm.
(and the fun will begin!)

Sounds like you had an amazing time, lovely his cute little suitcase. Granny's house is where all Mummy's rules are broken! Your daughter is amazing, only just had her baby and driving miles, packing up a home. Bennett has changed already
