This morning the kids woke up and jumped in our bed. It was a great slow way to wake up. We just tickle them and they will play with our hands by clapping them together. The kid for the first time just played with each other and did not need us to entertain them. We just sat in the room with them drinking our tea. It was relaxing for about an hour.
Jeff found a rock store that he wanted to check out. So it was our morning walk. That and we were running out of food. The rock store did not have what he wanted but told us to go to Old Riga. We are staying in Riga not Old Riga. If you are planning on coming to Latvia Riga is more where the common people go. So food and clothing is cheaper. Old Riga is very touristy and about 20-30% more expensive.
We came home and ate grilled cheese sandwiches. I was worried they would get tired of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. They really liked the sandwiches. Just the two boys and me took a nap today while Jeff and Elliana worked on ABC's and writing Elliana's name. I woke up coughing and with a itchy throat this morning. Hunter has been coughing ever since we picked him up. I think I just got what he had. I have it worse then he does but that is most likely due to the fact it is a bug my body is not used to. We picked up some throat medication and so far it is working.
In the afternoon we jumped on the train again, which the boys loved. We rode it the opposite direction of the zoo and went to Old Riga. We found three pictures that we will keep for the kids until they are old enough to have them. It is like a piece of something from where they came from. We wanted to get something of amber for them as well. We did not find anything but tourist traps. We did eat a Lulu's a pizza place. Elliana said pizza before but I'm not sure if they have ever had it. The pizza here is different then what us American's eat. I will most likely not eat pizza here again if I had a choice. These kids would agree too as each only ate one piece and indicated they were done.
We came home and played around the apartment. Hunter kept saying "Five minuet, time in". Do you think that means he gets put into "time in" a lot? I think they actually like the punishment for bad behavior. They have to sit in another room with Mommy or Daddy with a kitchen timer. They can't have any toys just sit with us. It calms them down. They are slowly catching on and the amount of light flicking and turning on the gas to the stove and touching Daddy's computer has diminished greatly. Spencer sometimes just smiles at me while we are in time in together.
Here are some of our latest pictures will might pull out for their high school graduation party.
