Samuel Discovers Bubble Wrap

Dec 18, 2011

We had Craig scheduled to arrive at 1 pm, so K, K & S  decided to come and have a visit with him, then shop a bit while Samuel was having a nap at our place.

Well, it did not quite work out that way.  Craig was bumped to a later flight and had to spend 5 hours in Toronto.  K, K & S decided to come ahead anyway, as they needed to finish their shopping.  We were delighted, and had a light lunch soon after they arrived. Samuel enjoyed playing with the electronic Santa whose eyes light up and plays Santa Claus is Coming to Town.

Soon the doorbell rang, and it was Canada Post with 3 large boxes.  The largest one had a single large present in it for Samuel from Cathy, Bruce and Sean.  Samuel paid no attention to the gift box, but the bubble wrap that was packed around it was an instant hit.  Kirk showed him how to stomp on it to make the bubbles pop. We all tried it out. Samuel learned to select one bubble and pop it with his fingers.

It was after 1 pm when Samuel went down for his nap, and K & K got away to shop.  He slept right through to 4:30, so was raring to go for the bubble wrap when he got up and his parents returned.  Rick had come over to see Samuel and have dinner with us  .

By then we had the bad news that Craig's flight was further delayed.  So all decided to go out for a walk to check out the neighbour's Santa  and lights displays, while Grant and Bill went to the airport.

Craig finally got in and we all had supper together, then played for a while.  Reluctantly, it was time for the little guy to go home to bed - but we will be seeing him again soon. The bubble wrap is waiting.
