Apparently, it's all the cool equipment Grant saw on the wine tours. He yells "IN!" anytime he sees something he wants to see up close and personal, including all cars, trucks, buses, bikes, tractors, golf carts, etc. If it has wheels, he wants in it.
Grant wasn't as easily contained this trip vs the trip to Hawaii. He was antsy and wanted out of his seat. Even the videos in the headrests of the Virgin planes weren't enough to keep him occupied. And who's to argue with a screaming toddler on a plane? He got his way, of course.
We were on vacation this week in Napa Valley! It was so beautiful - the weather was perfect, the wine tastings were fun, and the food was delicious! I have a lot of pictures to share, because Grant was with us the whole time, but it will take a while to go through them all. For now, here's a little jive-turkey for you.
Well, we visited another pumpkin patch. This time, it was aaaalllll the way over in Flower Mound. There were lots of people and lots of pumpkins. Grant liked the big pumpkins and he loved the cartoon cutouts of Yo Gabba Gabba. He also got very excited when we saw tractors and trains!
When Grant's name was called, we went to a DVD library and picked out a movie - Cars, of course. They play it on televisions that hang from the ceiling. Grant was very interested in the movie, but didn't want to actually lay back on the seat.
The let him hold a giant stuffed seal. First they brushed the seal's teeth. Then they brushed Grant's.
And he got a new toothbrush! With Tigger on it!
Here they are putting special toothpaste on the toothbrush.
Aaaaand, this is the last of the non-crying pics before the process was all done.
He did really well, despite the tears. They brushed his teeth really well (but we already do that at home), and then "Dr. Z" used the pick to check for cavities - he got the all clear! And lastly, they did a quick flouride treatment. After it was all done, plenty of hugs from Mama quickly got him in good spirits again.
Oh, and a new stuffed bear and a couple of Cars stickers didn't hurt either. ;)
Yesterday, we went to Calloway's Nursery for a visit to their pumpkin patch. They had activities for the kiddos, including pumpkin decorating, sidewalk chalk drawing, and flower planting. Grant didn't get into the chalk or potted flowers, but he enjoyed the pumpkin decorating. It was a great time to go - around 4:00 in the afternoon and the crowd was completely gone. It was great because we had the place almost completely to ourselves!
One cute thing we noticed - Grant kept saying "Boo!" every time he saw a decorative ghost! We didn't teach him that!
