Luke's class has a mascot, Wally the Koala (he is in "the Koala Room"), and each week, a different friend gets to bring Wally home. The kids report back to the class on his adventures in a photo diary. Wally happened to come home with Luke for one of our craziest weeks ever!
Luke strapped them in on the way home!
Luke was SO EXCITED to finally get his turn with Wally!
On Friday, Wally came along with Luke on his first ever dentist appointment. Wally showed Luke it wasn't so hard by letting Dr. Bianchi count his teeth first
Then we went to Daddy's office where Wally checked his email
And did some work with Luke
And checked out the lobby furniture
FINALLY we got to go to lunch
Luke and Wally polished off 3 poached eggs, toast, fruit, and bacon
On Saturday, all four of us headed back to HOBOKEN! for haircuts at Imago. Miss Andrea gave Luke & Wally a trim
Wally borrowed Harper's stroller - all that city walkin' is hard on a Koala!
Wally tried to eat the pizza (look closely, Luke is making chewing noises)
Luke and Wally pretended to order ice cream from the "big ice cream outside"
11 blocks later, we were at MAXWELL'S! Our former Friday Night Usual...sigh
Luke ordered Mac & Cheese and shared the salad with Mommy and Wally
Harper ate ALL OF IT
We made a pit stop by the site of the first baseball game
We wrapped up by showing Wally the view
On Sunday, it was time for Ronan's pirate birthday party! Everyone rested up on the drive...
Wally & Harper were too little for the bounce house
Wally didn't mind - he enjoyed the sun
And got a "scurvy dog" balloon animal
A good time was had by ALL. Especially Miss Fashion Plate Wardrobe Change
Some of you may know that Luke fell at school and had to get stitches...
From a PLASTIC SURGEON
So on Monday, Wally joined Luke in the stitches-removal appointment...and helped him play "Cut the Rope" in the waiting room
Dr. Hassan took good care of Luke and Wally - Luke was VERY brave
Before heading back to All Aboard and visiting a new friend, Mr. Bun thought maybe Wally should have some bubbles. (Plus, Luke's teacher, Michelle, had suggested it...)
Into laundry bags for safety, guys!
Get in there, Wally!
and a quick spin in the dryer...
Thanks for visiting, Wally - come back anytime!
