Vacation Time

Monday, November 30, 2009

We were on vacation last week...

Not the typical kind including luggage, traveling, staying at a resort, or relaxing on a beach.

It was something even more special than that.

Mike took some time off work and joined Cayman and I on our usual week's activities.

He came along with us to PlayGroup...


He helped Cayman paint a wintry scene.


They played in the sand box for awhile.

"Thanks Miss Colleen for letting me borrow your camera."
I had forgotten mine.

**********************

On another day, Daddy came along to Cayman's therapy appointment.
He got to watch her be such a good girl while Miss Sheron (the OT) taped Cayman's thumb.


Daddy also got to see the amazing crawling stance Cayman performs only for Miss Jodi (the PT).


At home we only get this (above) kind of cooperation from Cayman.


Cayman signing "more" while doing some swinging, balancing work.

Our week together was not just made up of appointments though. We got out, did some holiday shopping, and Christmas decorating. Movies were watched and popcorn was eaten. We joined my family at their Thanksgiving feast and spent the next few days recovering.

And as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. Until next year that is, when Mike receives more vacation days and then we get to do it all again.

Sometimes those are the best vacations, when you stay home. I love seeing the pictures of Cayman's playdates and therapy time. Does she love to swing? Every time Tyler goes to therapy he gets to swing and he signs more all the time, to the point we can't ask him anymore because he will do it the entire hour.
