One of the highlights of our trip to Wisconsin was visiting Madison and seeing our friends Jessi and Dave, and their son Alden. Silas and Alden are only a few days apart in age and it was great fun to watch them together.
Alden has a really cool slide and clearly, he is the master of it! Alden looks like he's not budging unless Silas gives him the secret password :)
On Saturday, we took the boys to Madison's fabulous Children's museum. I could have played with this wooden city for quite a while myself.
Nothing beats percussive instruments...
...except possibly learning to lay bricks...
...or dressing up in a hard hat and tool belt.
It was awesome to see our Madison friends, and I wish we could get the boys together more often. I asked Silas the next day "Is Alden your friend?" and he replied "Alden...Friend!" It's now been several days since we saw Alden, but I showed him the first picture on this post today and with no prompting, he remembered Alden's name and again reiterated that Alden was his friend. Awe...
Yesterday was a long day of travel for us, but we made it back home in one piece. Silas did really well on all of the flights and napped a lot, thankfully. His schedule is still a bit off, though. Today, he was up by 4:30. I'm hoping to get him back to his regular routine by the end of the week.
