Jude broke his arm last week. With all the adventures we go on, you think he did it doing some crazy ‘Jude like’ activity, but alas it was simply rolling off the bed. Let’s go back to the day in the question. Last Tuesday…
Jude went to school, the other boys and I went to the park – picked up Jude came back for lunch and Royal’s nap. Our adventure that afternoon was a trip to the Point at Crystal Cove. We don’t go to the Point often because it’s such a long walk but the boys needed a lot of exercise and I wanted to put them down early. Well, by the end of our outing the boys were exhausted and were ready to go down. Too bad Jude broke his arm minutes before going to bed!
Royal was in his cozy clothes. The great thing about Ryan studying all night after work is there is really no end for me so it’s made me develop more of an attitude that there’s nowhere to get so you might as well make the day as enjoyable as possible. We just take everything nice and slow and explore everything and anything.
Down on the beach, the boys explored pretty much wherever they wanted to go. Jude climbed up a small ledge, Finn explored the stream, and Royal launched himself over this sandy ledge over and over again.
This is a private path to the beach – it looks like a road but we’re not in a real road. It’s only for people walking and those that want to be on their bikes, we didn’t see any bikers. Jude observing the long walk that he had no energy for.
Pretty touch and go – hadn’t quite figured out how to keep Jude clothed – my house was a disaster from not getting a chance to really clean it the night before. Lots of stickers, and thankfully a surprise delivery from Grandma Cindy and Bompa Petes – super hero balloons. Very sweet, despite his sad face he was actually quite excited about them.
We’ve been spending a little more time inside, but we still manage to get out to do some fun stuff. The only time he has genuinely cried hard since he broke his arm was when he was at the park for the first time and after a few attempts at trying to climb up stuff he couldn’t – he loves climbing and scaling everything. Royal with his chin in his hand, so cute. He’s growing up so much.
