Saturday I picked Peyton up and asked her if she wanted to pick a restaurant nearby (near her town) or if she wanted to go back to Boston and walk to a place near my apartment. She picked option 2. Would you believe I forgot my iPhone at my apartment when we went to dinner!? Shocking I know but don't worry I made up for it the rest of the weekend. So we went to dinner then the the Charles River to feed the ducks and
Sunday Peyton was up at 6:30 AM and ready to go. "I want to get dressed. When can we get dressed? When can we go do fun stuff?" I held her off for an hour with a couple tv shows and then we were off. We walked to breakfast at a diner in my neighborhood, then took a quick stop at Target for sunglasses for Peyton (we got Ella a pair too) and then spent the day at the Boston Common. A Swan Boat ride, a balloon hat, a picnic lunch, a ride on the merry-go-round, visiting the swans and more were on the agenda!
It was such a beautiful day in Boston. We had such a nice time. Peyton loved doing everything and wanted to do it all over and over! I kept her to one ride on the Swan Boats and one ride on the merry-go-round with a promise of coming back for a future visit. Oh and she begged to "ride the subway" but I told her next time (it was easier to drive since I had to bring her home after).
Peyton at 5 1/2 is a lot of fun to be around. She talks A LOT and the majority of her talking consists of asking questions. I forgot just how exhausting that is. Ha!
"Jodi why did you park here? Is this your parking space? Do you always park in this space? What if someone else parked in your space. . . ?"
"Why do you go in this door? Do you always go in this door or only when you get your mail? Who is that package for? Do you know him?"
"Why are you driving in this lane? Can you drive fast on the highway? Why did you move over to a different lane? Are we on the highway? Are we getting off that exit?"
"Why is the swan sitting on the nest? Are there eggs under there? Will she get up?"
"Do ducks have teeth? Do geese have teeth? Will they bite us?"
"Can we go on the merry-go-round now? Can we have lunch yet? Can we have a snack? Can we blow up the beach ball?"
That my friends is just a sampling of the questions. She really did ask me questions all weekend long. It is too funny to see how their brains work.
