It was funny because on this trip Grandpa Mike was dubbed "Stinky Pete." Poor Mike, he can't catch a break. Ayda has called him Uncle Mike (think about it the only men she is ever around are her uncles) she's called him Grandma Pam's boyfriend (not his favorite). Then on this trip we thought maybe everyone would get used to just calling him Grandpa...wrong. Zander (who has a serious Toy Story addiction) named him Stinky Pete. It stuck, because now that they are gone he asks, "Where did my Stinky Pete go?"
We were able to spend an afternoon at the Japanese Gardens, the weather was still nice (no rain!) and it was nice to play outside. Pam and Mike were also able to go to one of Ayda's swim lessons and watch both of our little fishes in action. We spent a fun filled afternoon chasing the kids through tunnels and up rope ladders and down too small of slides at Safari Sam's.
Both the kids were sad to see them go, but look forward to our next trip with Grandma and Stinky Pete.
