on saturday, penny and i ran into her friend andie and family at the playground. andie has a two week old baby sister, so i invited all of them over to our place for a change of scenery. penny and andie had a great time, and i hope andie's mom got a little bit of a break. after penny's nap, we headed over to our friends' apartment for a race-day bbq. penny used their toilet (awesome) and was terrorized by dogs (not awesome). there were three friendly dogs at the party, and it was too much for penny. just as she was beginning to warm up to them, one of them ran up to her out of nowhere, put his paws on her chest and took a bite out of the cookie she was holding. before she could process what had happened, he jumped up and took another bite. she and the dog were both totally fine, but she totally lost it and was inconsolable for a while. once we replaced her cookie, things got a lot better. we had a good time watching the race, though penny is still baffled by commercial tv.
on sunday penny told me that she wanted to go to the "other playground". we packed up the diaper bag and headed to harmony. we weren't even halfway up the block when i noticed one of andie's shoes! apparently she had lost it the night before! quite an auspicious beginning to the day.
|we stopped by these hydrangeas to capture penny's favorite color. i'll give you three guesses.|
we had a super great time!
she fell asleep in the stroller, and i ran a couple of errands. we took a trip to the animal playground in the afternoon, but the sky got really dark really fast, so we headed home pretty quick.
penny decided to have a picnic dinner!
