Weekend with Hamlet

This weekend was one that was a bit different for us.  Mike left for Kansas City on Thursday for a music/football weekend with a good friend.   So I was solo-Mommin' it.

When I picked Jonathan on Friday, there was a little bag in his cubby.  In the bag was a pink pig, a book and a journal.  There was a note explaining that this was Hamlet. He visits each child in the classroom at some point.  And in the journal, we could write what we did, draw pictures of what we did, etc.

Jonathan and I had such a good time with Hamlet, even though we really missed Daddy.  But I thought I would take the opportunity to share our weekend with you.

After therapy, Jonathan and I went to an Art Show.  Some of my co-workers were showing their pieces, and we took the opportunity to go to the event!

Everyone buckles up for safety!

We also read to Hamlet.  The bag came with his favorite book.  So Jonathan shared one of his favorites.  He also wanted to show off his iPad skills.

On Saturday morning, we took our weekly trip to Target.
Again, buckle up for safety!  Especially with JJ driving
Mom!  You think Hamlet would like some Cheez-Its?

Then, for a special treat! We went to Sutters Ridge, which is a pumpkin patch, apple orchard and corn maze.  We met up with Jonathan's friend and classmate, Thorley and his family.  Thorley, Jonathan and Hamlet enjoyed playing in the kid's area.  We also went to the corn maze and had a ton of fun!

Thorley and Hamlet found the picture of the piggy

Friends.  (This picture makes me tear up.)  Thorley is such a good friend!
Later on, we hung out at home.  We played outside, a little more iPad, and then just crashed.

Everyone was tuckered out from the day.  Buddies gotta cuddle.

Hamlet accompanied Jonathan to my Weight Watchers meeting. Hamlet did not weigh in. (please note, no picture available). 

He did help us make cookies when we got home later.  Also, our neighbor Elena stopped over on her way to her special birthday party!  We had to get a picture with the birthday girl.

Elena and Hamlet rockin' out!

 Now we're waiting for Daddy to get home.  Jonathan is very excited for his arrival.  He keeps saying, "Daddy goes on airplane, then red car, then come home!" 

In the meantime, I've got to keep an eye on these boys.  You never know what they will get into....
No, Hamlet!  No!  That is just WRONG!
