A blogworthy request

Thursday I was supposed to get together with Ali over at The Craning Gap.  Sadly she had a migraine and had to cancel, as one who suffers from migraines I completely understood. 
This was what she tweeted me:
"please do something fun so i don't feel sad. something blogworthy so i can read about it. "

So here you go Ali, we had some simple fun on Thursday.  I just didn't have a chance to get the pictures off the camera sooner.
Old school wagon

The weather was lovely and Nana (Ben's mom) said she had a surprise for Garrett.  We went out in the yard to find an old fashioned wagon.  The bottom was a bit rusty so we cleaned it and put a blanket down for him to sit on.  Garrett then made sure that I got lots of exercise running him around their yard.

Run, Mommy, Run!

Then Nana pulled him for a bit.

And of course he had to push the wagon himself.

After that I decided to leave Garrett with his grandparents and take some time to myself.  I haven't really done this and usually don't know what to do with myself but I figured I need to get used to doing things without Garrett.  Especially since if we move out to Pittsfield we'll have several available baby sitters.
So I get in the car, start driving.  Garrett is playing with Nana and doesn't seem to care that I left.  Ben was at his interview so it was just Garrett and his grandparents.

I get about 15 minutes down the road, realized I had forgotten my wallet and had to turn around to go get it.  I guess it's going to take time to get used to going out without a diaper bag. 

Don't forget to enter our magazine giveaway. A winner will be chosen this Friday 5/20 at noon.

I noticed your autism awareness button. I have a 17-year-old son with mild to moderate autism. When he was little I didn't know if he would marry, but now I think that day WILL come. I don't mean to do you deal with autism inside of marriage? Is it difficult?

 That wasn't offensive at all. Actually I'm thinking I'll answer it in a blog post.  I'm sure lots of people wonder the same thing.
