Pretend City, Take 2

 Hannah and Xavier met Andrew and I at Pretend City in Irvine on September 8th.  Originally we were supposed to have several other Bumpies join us, but between plans changing and illness, it was just the four of us. Andrew quickly remembered how much he liked the farm.  He picked tomatoes, strawberries, and dug in the "dirt." 
 I actually let him play in the beach this time.  He almost immediately started throwing sand on himself (like he does with water) and thought it was the best thing on the planet.

 We found a very cool room that Tawni and I had missed.  The "theatre" had a bunch of jumping/climbing tools.  Xavier showed Andrew how it was done!

 Being a firefighter!
 Using a screwdriver!
driving the fancy car
  Xavier was back into the sand playing with the big trucks.

 In the dentist office, Xavier played with the wooden blocks and Andrew excitedly cleaning the giant teeth.
 And, of course, both of their favorite parts was the Marina!  Andrew was pretty quick to splash all over, including Xavier who wasn't quite ready to get wet.
 See the dripping water off his head?!?  Yep, that was all him!
 He found a little ledge that he could stand on to make huge splashes!
 Xavier totally got into it too!
 We tried to go play in the house afterwards, but both boys desperately needed a nap.  I couldn't help but share their "sweat stain" water marks from playing so much in the Marina.
I'm starting to think that I probably should have bought the year membership--Andrew loves it and I do too!


  1. I'm so glad we got the boys together for this trip! They clearly had a lot of fun :)
