Our Day...

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I wanted to spend some time with Liz & Sam before Grace was out of school for the summer. So, Sam came up with a list of things he wanted to do with me.

First of all, the three of us went to Denny's and had breakfast. We talked about the adoption, the possibility of the closures, and our hopes for the upcoming summer vacation. After the breakfast, Liz went to her best friend Alyssa's house to hang out and go bike riding.

Sam and I headed to Grace's school to pick up a few things that couldn't be sent home on the bus (like a Stokke chair that we lent them, but now we need for Bella!). We were able to take a few pictures of Grace with her teachers....

Next, Sam and I headed to Oak Park to feed the wild Canadian geese. They aren't so wild now, because people have been feeding them all spring, and they aren't too svelt either!

Next, on Sam's agenda was to visit the Humane Society. (Can you tell he loves animals?) He especially loves cats, so off we went to "Kitty City" at the shelter.

Sam and I had a wonderful day together!(we snapped this holding the camera together out in front of us)

He's a quick-witted kid with a big heart! He'll make a wonderful big brother to Bella!
