friday night after bath and stories, we put sammy in his "astronaut seat" and blasted off for columbus. we arrived late, after grandma and grandpa were in bed, and went straight to sleep. we needed to get plenty, we had a date with a football game to keep the next day.
after a morning of visiting (including a nice visit with grandma nordstrom), we headed over to the game. sammy was likely one of (if not the) youngest fans at the event, which drew a record breaking 95,000+ cheering spectators. he attempted to get a little shut-eye, but the excitement was too much to ignore. he spent the majority of his time charming a couple of small boys in the family sitting next to us.
though he seemed to find the game a little stressful at times...
"i sure hope the buckeyes win!"
...we think he had a good time.
thanks grandma and grandpa for having us over! we can't wait to see you again soon! sammy sends his love and says "ah-goo" to you both.

sam had no trouble adjusting to the new routine or charming the grownups at the daycare. i had more trouble with it, and came to work on tuesday still a bit teary from having to leave sammy.
this monday i have a meeting with my supervisors to find out about my request for part-time hours.
last friday mike had the day off, so we treated it as a normal saturday and did all our saturday chores. there was much grocery shopping and cleaning to be done, as we were expecting a visit from mike's mom and john that evening and were planning our (now annual) easter gathering with my family on easter sunday. we had a lovely, relaxing evening of take-out and watching "the storyteller" on dvd.
the following day, after mike cooked breakfast for us and our guests, we did some serious easter prep. we dyed eggs, and i made kolaches and bread and pre-chopped things for salad. sam helped by watching and reminding me to take breaks and feed him.
we topped off saturday evening with dinner out with family at a new restaurant. i was excited to find that there was a section for vegetarian dishes (always a good thing!) by the end of the day, we were pooped.
