Binkeez for Comfort and Peach's Neet Feet Superhero Party

Today we went to a superhero party put on by two wonderful organizations, and Raul had a great time! There were lots of arts and crafts to do, matchbox cars to play with, and the Bruins bear (Raul had fund chasing him around and then pretending to be scared while laughing!). We also were able to meet another local EB family! Raul's favorite activity was making a "paint mess" while painting a banner. This involved painting his face, bandages, and splashing his hand in a puddle of paint! We are glad that we were able to be part of this wonderful event!

First Day of School!

Today was Raul's first day of his final year of pre-school! The schedule changed this year, so he is doing a late start in the morning, but then staying through the end of the day. I didn't hear anything from his teachers, but another mom saw him during the day visiting the lunch room and she said he was happy, and he was in a good mood when he got home!

Edaville Railroad

Today we went to Edaville railroad for their "Day Out With Thomas" event! Raul was very excited to see the big Thomas and ride on the caboose (which is their handicap accessible car, but luckily also the one he wanted!). We took the train ride through the cranberry bogs, and Raul almost dozed off again after falling asleep in the car. He isn't feeling very well due to infection, and started antibiotics yesterday, but they haven't really kicked in yet. Whenever he has infections he is in a lot more pain, and has a hard time with any bumps while in the car or stroller. So we tried to go in their Dino Land area, but didn't make it very far as it was a gravel road and just too painful. He did like the two we saw, though! He didn't want to go on any of the rides, but we walked around and looked at them. While walking around we saw the craft area, and Raul got a temporary tattoo of Thomas, which he is very proud of! We also played a bit with the train tables, and met Sir Topham Hatt (this got big smiles)! His favorites were the train tables and just watching the big Thomas go by!

Labor Day Weekend

We went up to Rockport for Labor Day weekend, and Raul had a great time! Several trips to the playground, seeing the huge sailboats that came for the Gloucester Schooner Festival, and lots of playing with the whole family! It got a bit hot the last two days, so by then he was ready to come home to the air conditioning, but he had fun!
