Grandpa and Grandma Wassmer were supposed to come up this weekend but didn’t because Grandpa got sick. We were bummed because they weren’t up here, but happy because we aren’t sick now. That kind of changed the rest of the plans for the rest of the weekend.
Friday night it was off to Kiku Japanese Steakhouse for some food flinging. This Hibachi style restaurant was a ton of fun for the kids. The chef was very interactive and even flung some shrimp at us to catch in your mouth. Carter’s shrimp landed square in his eye. He was surprised but was soon ready for another chance to participate in the flying fun.
Saturday was shopping at the outlet mall for mommy, carter and I just tagged along. He is getting to the age where those little kid areas in the middle of the malls are pretty impactful. Carter climbed in and out of a bunch of those quarter driven moving rides. He seemed to have fun even though nothing ever moved, which saved me a few quarters 😉
Monday we went to the Naperville Labor Day Parade which was Carter’s very first parade. I can’t beleive it took this long to get him to one. He was heaven as the candy rained down on him from every float. He was mezmorized by all the people and loved the bands as they marched by. Each and every Police or Fireman triggered the finger point and for him to ask “uncle jase?”
