2011 Buddy Walk

Time to check in again :) This week has come and gone quite fast, like most weeks with Mav now that he is SO active! This week he had preschool (they got to see a firetruck), Mom and Dad had date night, we all went to Buddy Walk and of course the Rangers are now going to the World Series! :)

Mav had a great time at preschool this past week! After school on Tuesday we went to Cupcake Bliss with Leslie and AG and had after-school cupcakes! On Thursday the firemen came to the school so the kids could learn about fire safety and more. Mav loved the firetruck! He also enjoyed the new sandbox his class gets to play in outside their room. They only had to get on to him for throwing the sand, imagine that! On Friday, Ross and I got to go on date night thanks to Grandpa, Mims and Aunt Mallory who came over and watched Mav for us. Ross and I went to Brio and to see 50/50. It was a great movie! (I cried!!) On Saturday we took Aunt Mallory to Buddy Walk in Arlington. Buddy Walk helps to raise awareness of Down syndrome and raises money to support the Down syndrome Partnership of Tarrant County and Mallory's school, Green Oaks School. 

We had a great time! Mav got to play games, go in a bounce house, we pushed him in the stroller for the walk and Mallory of course had a great time seeing her friends :)

Bouncin' around!

After Buddy Walk, Gramps and Grams came over for lunch and to see Mav. We played outside and Mav showed off his t-ball skills. We had a great time! On Sunday Mav's Great Mimi and Papa Gene came into town. I got to meet them at Olive Garden and then we all went over to Grandpa and Mimmy's house once Mav got up from his nap. Mav loved seeing them and showed off all he can do now. He went swimming (yes in the chilly water, he didn't even seem to notice it was cold), went swinging, played outside, etc. It was a very special day! On Monday night AG and Eric came down to play with us and after they left Mav got to play with bath tub crayons I got him at Target. He loved them!

Playing in the tub, he colored everywhere!

Those are the highlights of our week so far, I'll post more next week. This week we will defintely be enjoying the cooler, fall weather and watching the Rangers. GO RANGERS!!
