Seb and I went apple picking with my friend Donna and her lad Leo. We went to Nivens, which is only about a 30 minute drive from here on the way to Spartanburg. We got there nice and early, good job too as plenty if preschool groups turned up. It was pretty well priced. I paid $9 for a bushel of apples, which was a small carrier bags worth. We had a look at the animals, and the pumpkin patch, and off we went. We both managed to fill our bags quite quickly, with the boys eating their way round. There were lots of rotting apples on the ground, so lots of bugs. Once our bags were full, we did not stay long.
I looked after my friends little boy on Wednesday, as she had an appointment to keep. Him and Isaac were so pleased to see each other when we got Isaac from school. Very cute.
Then the sicknesses hit. First Seb, then Paul, then me and now Isaac. Paul took Thursday off work as he was so unwell on the Wednesday. Good job too, as Thursday was not a good day for me. I drifted in and our of sleep on the sofa all day. Oliver was supposed to have baseball, luckily for us it rained most of the day, so it was cancelled
Paul went back to work in the Friday, and I took it very easy. The boys watched a lot of tv.....
Isaac had a birthday party to attend on the Saturday morning. It was a cinema party, so we got to watch Cloudy Wiyh A Chance of Meatballs 2. It is an awesome film, and we both really enjoyed it. The birthday boys mum is the Spanish teacher at Isaacs school, so knew Isaac well. He enjoyed it, and his party bag was one of the best I have seen. From there we went to Costco for the big shop, then on to Chillis for some dinner.
I took Sebastian to Gymboree yesterday morning. He really enjoys it, and even let out a big YEAH when we parked up. We then decided to meet Paul for lunch. Most of his department are away on a drive event this week, which he was not required to go on. We met at Firehouse Subs on Pelham Road. OMG these subs were huge, and so tasty. Seb really enjoyed his cheese toasted sandwich, his first one ever! Oliver had a baseball game last night, which Paul took him too. His team won again, they have not lost a game yet this season.
We met Paul again for lunch today. I was already talking of taking Seb to the new park at the airport to check it out. Although it is still not completely finished (they are building it on donations and grants, for more details see here), there are play areas in for small children. Perfect for Seb. He played while we waited for Paul. It was hot today. I was glad I put cream on him and brought his hat. We then went and had some lunch at the Runway Cafe. While there we must have seen about 8 planes take off or land over the space of an hour. At first Seb was a bit freaked by the noise of the jets , but he soon got used to them. It has been really nice meeting up with Paul for the last couple of days lunches.
Plus it has meant I have not had to be too bothered about cooking..... Only for the kids.....
