Evan and I spent this past weekend with Max and Amy in Bellingham (Jeremy missed this trip--he stayed home to work and enjoy two nights of uninterupted sleep). We went to the Down Syndrome Outreach Buddy Walk, went out to dinner, shopping, and just hanging out. Sunday was the Fall CHARGE group get-together (unfortunately, I got so caught up in visiting that I didn't get any pictures of all the kiddos together again...). These are the best pics from the weekend.
I always wondered if Evan was the only kid that liked watching TV this way...guess not
Max shared his neat indoor play structure with Evan (by the end of the weekend, Evan figured out how to climb up the slide by himself, turn around, and slide back down)
At the Buddy Walk, by Whatcom "creek" (a rushing river by my standards)--love the fall leaves and the look on Evan's face
After the walk, Max looked up in the sky and noticed some birds. Amy was signing "bird" to him, and after they flew away he made his "where'd they go" sign (he also makes a sound that sounds just like "where'dtheygo" sometimes too). Real, meaningful communication--it is so inspiring to see.
Evan and Max playing very well next to each other while we were waiting for dinner.
