No trip around town is complete without a stop at the dino park so we stopped by the other afternoon. Catherine stopped for a quick picture with Uncle Matt before crawling off again and Matthew was ecstatic to have someone to play chase with him.
Matthew probably could have spent all day putting tokens in the machines and retrieving the complimentary tickets.
Of course when we got back there was chill out time with Uncle Matt:
A family shot with two sugar coma kiddos thanks to Uncle Matt. As you can see James and I's ghostbuster costumes never materialized. Uncle Matt's super awesome costume made up for it.
We were handing out some pencils with our candy. When I put my handful in Matthew's bucket he grabbed the pencil and put it back in my bucket telling me "no thank you mom, I don't need that". The boy learned quickly. For better or worse we ended up with far more candy than we would ever want, need or should eat. On Thursday, unfortunately, we had to take Uncle Matt to the airport. Matthew was in preschool when we took him and when we got back in the car he was very concerned about Uncle Matt, but mostly he kept asking if Uncle Matt ate all his candy :-)
The next day I asked Matthew to sell his daddy a bag of candy and he was very eager to then head out and pick out a toy.
