Sunny got new shorts. She is now reminiscent of a 1980s basketball player.
These were $1 at Walmart. Worth the buck.
Since I only spent a buck on the shorts I bought her this 4wheeler, too. Not $1. But worth it as well- she needed something to play with outside besides the always-entertaining game of Eating Dirt. She goes mind-blowing speeds of up to 2 mph down the driveway, offroad (off the driveway) where the 4wheeler pretty much shuts down, and then back up the driveway. I didnt know they made these for 1 year olds- its makes the whole toddler-thing (throwing tantrums, tossing food off her plate, spitting out her milk) that much more fun!
We had a huge weekend. A weekend where you need a weekend to recuperate. Friday we went to the Melbourne State Fair (we live about 30minutes from Melbourne, FL). A good friend of Jasons' owns the fair and let us in for free, ride anything for free, and play whatever games we wanted as well! I took Sunny on a few rides that she loved; seeing your child having fun is priceless. Sunny played with other kids we knew there, chasing after the older ones as fast as her little legs would run.
This is our 2nd year attending the German Club of the Palm Beaches' Oktoberfest- Jason reckons it is authentic, as authentic as it can be when compared to the Oktoberfests he's attended in Munich (every year for 8 years!). I recall last year being more fun, but then again I wasnt pregnant last year.... :(
We had lederhosen for Jase and Sunny which was extremely fun, everyone loved it. The band took Sunny onstage and sang with her for a bit. She is interested in everyone and everything, especially the people who have food and offer it to her.
Afterwards we visited Elliott and his girlfriend Sophie at her place. Sunny loved playing with the big-girl toys (Sophie's has a little girl) and was obsessed with this fish tank and every fish in it. (She is wearing her towel after having a quick swim on the roof in a heated pool)
So, thats Week 16 in the Life of the Gligs. Its been hectic and it'll continue to be hectic! We are soooooo looking forward to the holidays, loving the nice cool weather (our a/c is off, windows are open!), and.... that's it! Ciao!
