our weekend

We spent Friday celebrating Garrison's birthday. We took him to The Depot in Duluth. Garrison loves trains or choo choos as he calls them. Then what better to do, but take him to a train museum? He loved it. There were all kinds of trains to look at and some to crawl in. They even had a few tables with Thomas the train trains to play with. We ended up buying a family pass for a year. The Depot also has a children's museum. It seems a little old for Garrison, but they are expanding and will hopefully have a section for Garrison's age in 2011.

Saturday we celebrated my birthday. Our pastors wife and one of their daughters came over to babysit Garrison and Josiah so Thomas and I could go out. We went to Famous Dave's. Thomas felt kind of bad for only going out to eat, but I reassured him that I was extremely excited about going. I didn't have to cut someone else's food and I could enjoy an entire conversation without little ones interrupting us. It was so nice! Afterwards we went to DQ for some ice cream.

Garrison had a blast with our pastors daughter. They ended up becoming the best of friends. He barely noticed we had come home. Josiah even did great. He fights sleep so I get a little nervous leaving him because I don't want him to cry a lot for others. However, the handful of times that we have left him with someone they tell us he did great. Maybe they're just trying to be nice or maybe he enjoys hanging out with us so much he doesn't want to go to sleep. Whatever the reason it was nice to get out and enjoy some alone time with Thomas.
