Then it was on the pet store, where Topher discovered the fun of the bunny/guinea pig enclosures. When he gets older and chooses his first pet, we wonder if it will be one of these, though we'll probably steer him towards a rat, reptile, or budgerigar first. Still, anything that makes him smile this big would be hard to refuse.
My mom loved having Topher around, and they played and played together (and if you know my mom, you know that this is just her heaven.)
Later that night, we went out to dinner for my mom's birthday and Topher had a great time with all of his cousins.
It was hard to leave, but nice to be home and out of the car. We set up the barstools right away and agreed that they complete our kitchen area perfectly.
We had so much fun visiting with family and hope we can get back to KC soon. The long car rides continue to be a challenge, but one we can tackle from time to time. With a blizzard blowing in now, we're just happy to be in our cozy home as a family, with the knowledge that our extended families are never more than a few hours away.
