Yes, I'm going to do an entire week of tours through Norwich...sorry in advance for the snooze-fest, but I figured this might help satisfy some curiosities about life here.
Tuesday started at 6 AM and a realization that we were out of milk. Usually, if it is before 9 here, you are out of luck. However, a couple of months ago, this little place opened on the corner...it opens at 7AM...thank goodness P was willing to wait until then for his milk. Oh how I miss 24 hour Walgreens and Dillons!
|The sign under our street sign says that the street was named Quayside because of the many dunkings that took place there...mainly women.|
After breakfast, cleaning up and one episode of Mickey Mouse...Parker and I had playtime and worked on letters. Today was C for Cow, but he wasn't really interested. After a serious game of football, we got ready to go to Gymboree. We left the house at 11:00 AM. I didn't take any pictures on our walk there because it is in the same building as the gym from yesterday.
Gymboree lasts until 12:30 (luckily P didn't "tackle" any of the kids today, but he did spend most of the time watching himself run in the mirror). We got home around 1 PM and had lunch (pasta, P's favorite) and then I put him down for a nap. Thank goodness he went right to sleep. From 2 to 4, Mommy talked to Wendy (thanks for calling:), did laundry, and Plyometrics and took a quick shower (seriously, like 2 minutes). After P woke up, we had to hurry to get out of the house to pick up Daddy's tux before everything closed at 5. Because I didn't have time for an argument, here is what I let P wear out of the house.
|Oh yes, those are socks on his hands and orange socks pulled clear up to his knees. Oh my Parker.|
|We left the house at 4:35...here is an idea of how quickly our days are fading!|
|One of the entrances to the Cathedral.|
|Our favorite toy store...too bad we pass it every time we go into town. I have to say no...a lot!|
|Getting into the heart of the center.|
|The original "indoor "mall. It is really beautiful inside.|
|Moss Brothers to pick up Daddy's tux at 4:53...we made it!! Only to find out they actually stay open until 6, ha.|
|Quick stop in the grocery store for fish. This is actually part of a department store, but they have the best meat selection.|
|On our way home at 5:35. Just to give you an idea of how quickly everything closes down here.|
Finally home by 6, and Brady was home early again today by 6:30. Dinner at 6:45 (shrimp stir fry) and P is in bed by 8:00. Such a good day!!
