Grandpa took some time off of work and took us to the Dallas Aquarium, the Children's Museum, and an awesome aquarium at Grapevine Mills. Everett had a blast watching the fish and playing with everything (water in particular) at the Children's museum. I really loved seeing the manatees at the Dallas Aquarium, but most of all loved watching Everett's exuberant excitement!!! Pax slept most of the time, which was really nice as well. :)
There was lots of time spent in the pool. Everett learned the words pool and swimsuit among others he picked up along the way. As a side note, today is day 74 of over 100 degree weather this summer. Whew!
Though Everett pretty strongly refused naps and bedtime, he DID open his mind to some new foods! One struggle yielded to another. He began this streak by gobbling down broccoli, saying "more! more!" while our mouths gaped open in shock.
And the quote of the week goes to my mom. While looking at Paxton..."I think I'm going to look like that someday. You know, with my cheeks resting on my shirt."
