Message for Mum

September 30, 2013

Mum’s away on a business trip so we made a message for her:

After dinner we had a FaceTime call with her which, apparently, was the highlight of her day.

35 year old birthday parties are the coolest

September 28, 2013
My gym celebrated its 35th birthday today and it hosted the coolest party.  The gym doesn't normally have bounce houses in it!

I don't usually get my face painted or a balloon sword at gym class either.

Rafa got to try out some of the equipment that he watches me practice on each week.  He made the fat beam look really easy.

To make it even more fun, some of our friends were there too.  After all, what's a good party without friends?

Ultrasound, urologist and the car

September 24, 2013
Carlos and I had our ultrasound today to check on our kidneys and bladders

Carlos and I had our ultrasound today to check on our kidneys and bladder.

This visit was WAY better than my last check up.  I had Carlos with me, I didn't have to do the VCUG and the very nice radiologist put Mickey Mouse on a personal DVD player for me which I kept about an inch from my face.

This visit was WAY better than my last check up. I had Carlos with me, I didn’t have to do the yucky VCUG exam and the very nice radiologist put Mickey Mouse on a personal DVD player which made it much easier to stay still.

Then off to the urologist in town to get the results.  It's the waiting that drives Mum up the wall.

I didn't mind the wait.  I had a car to crash.  But I did over hear the urologist tell Mum that my kidneys and bladder look PERFECT!

I didn’t mind the wait. I had a car to drive all over the office.  My favourite journey was driving the car over the stool and crashing it into the hard floor.

The urologist said that my kidneys and bladder look PERFECT!  Mum skipped out of the office happily.  I was cranky I had to leave the car.

The good news is the urologist said that my kidneys and bladder look PERFECT so nothing more to worry about for now. Mum seemed happy about that.  I was just cranky I had to leave the car with Dr Hirselj.

Oh, he's coming around....

Oh, he’s coming….

So cool!

Indoor jumping

September 22, 2013

It’s another cold and wet day, but that’s okay because today was Luke’s birthday party at Pump It Up.

Ana didn't stay still enough for any good photos.

She was even zooming down the big slides.

I liked the slides too but Mum had to take me up each time.

And then I found the ball pit.

But then I found a ball.

And so I played soccer for the rest of the time.

Indoor climbing

September 21, 2013

It’s raining.  Papi is away for the weekend.  So what do we do?

Became pirates at Munchkin Play Land of course.  I climbed the mast.

A spot of indoor climbing of course.

Up.

Rafa is getting the hang of it.

On top of the duck was even higher.

I’m the Queen of the Duckie!

Rafa couldn't resist.

Rafa’s just a copy cat.

Bye bye Cabo

September 20, 2013
Our Cabo trip has come to it's end.

Our Cabo trip has come to its end.  Bye palm trees, cactus and aloe vera gardens, sunshine and blue skies.

But there were a few things that we wanted to remember on the blog.  Like the fresh fruit breakfasts.

And the hours colouring whilst Mum and Papi finished theirs.

And the hours colouring whilst Mum and Papi finished their breakfast when all we wanted to do was get into the pool.

The way house keeping made towel dogs, bears and elephants for us.

House keeping would make us towel dogs, bears and elephants and leave them on our beds as a surprise.

And I hope Mum folds our bath towels like they did at the pool.

I really want Mum to learn how to fold our bath towels like they folded the towels at the pool.

We had fun at the mini club.

But apparently the mini bar wasn't for us.

But apparently the mini bar wasn’t for us.  Mum and Papi couldn’t believe that the rooms were stocked with full bottles of spirits (all inclusive in the package).  Perhaps more unbelievable, is they didn’t drink from it once.

We'll miss you Cabo!
