Picinic and other news

Today was the Down Syndrome Resource Group picinic. I don't think it could've been better weather, not too hot or cold. My mother and step-father, sister, gram and grampa, my friend Becki and Jayson's mother and her boyfriend came with us. We all had a good time. We got to see Riley again and we met many other children with Down syndrome and their parents. There was a bounce house, a bouncing horse racing thing, pony rides, ding dong cart (ice cream cart), lunch, and a DJ. All the kids seemed to really enjoy themselves. Rudy was a bit grouchy and of course Vinnie is too small for all the fun but next year should be even better!

Vinnie is starting to babble a lot. The longest times of course are in the middle of the night when I go to bed later than I should. He is doing so well and makes us so happy, everyone just loves our boys!

We have a few new additions to our family, not really but we have seen a doe and it's fawn, lots of bunnies, and the gopher that lives under the shed has sprouted at least 2 babies this year. And lots of birds or course.

If you haven't already heard, the rumor is that the next Down syndrome convention will be held in California. Hopefully we will be able to rent a house and have a family vacation out that way. Woo hoo!

That's about it.
