Winston passed out somewhere between lunch and arriving at Gallery Rinard, so after leaving the store we walked back to the hotel for a little downtime before the Alumni reception. Each year at the AAO, the ortho schools host a reception for alumni to eat a few hor d'oeuvres and say hello to people they hadn't seen in a year or more.
When Winston woke up, we headed out to grab a bite to eat and then took a leisurely walk along the Mississippi River stopping at the Riverwalk Marketplace. The weather was great, there were boats sailing by and birds in the air. Seemed like the great time to take a few photos!
This is Winston's "cheese" face. It melts my heart and I never want him to stop doing it!
My heart fills with happiness and love when I look at these. Winston is my little buddy through and through. I am so thankful for his sweet, joyful, comical spirit. He can be quiet and observant, taking it all in one minute and bouncing all over the place the next minute. His little sense of humor continues to develop and I have a feeling we have a little trickster on our hands!
We rounded out the night by catching up with people, having a very bubbly bath and watching a Daniel Tiger courtesy of the mini iPad!
