We had a lovely weekend. Saturday was Marta's birthday so it was a day of festivities. It was a beautiful sunny day. At breakfast time the waffle chef was doing his magic.
This was followed by a lot of shopping. In the evening we celebrated with Chinese food at our favorite restaurant followed by fresh strawberry shortcake. These two
pictures were taken at the end of the day when we were having dessert.

Gabriel has really begun to talk! He now has so many words we wouldn't be able to count them. Very often he tries to repeat the words he hears. In the morning we hunted bugs. We had watched part of the movie "A Bug's Life", then decided to hunt bugs outside. We got down really close to the ground to look for bugs. Gabriel would shout "bug" and "ant" when he saw them. Once he found a really big ant and surprised me by quickly smashing it! So funny!
We were shopping Saturday afternoon and Gabriel was in the cart with me while Steve and Marta shopped. We went to the fruits and vegetables to study. I said the name very clearly a couple of times and he tried to repeat. It feels
exactly the same as when I'm teaching my students vocabulary.

It is so wonderful to see the world through the eyes of a child.

You are hard to keep up with.
What lucky grandchildren you have!
The "waffle chef" is becoming quite famous! Has he considered starting his own restaurant?
