Camp Giffy & Papa

We are watching Emma for a long weekend. We've had lots of fun! It started out Friday night with playtime in the tub. She loved splashing Papa!
Papa used a colander to make it rain on her. She kept asking for more!
Here's a video clip:

Emma is really enthralled with Winnie the Pooh and his friends. We gave her Piglet as her sleepover surprise.
On Saturday, we went to the New England Aquarium in Boston. She called every fish "Nemo."

Then we took her to Boston's North End (aka Little Italy) for lunch. We dined at Artu's, our favorite Italian restaurant. Emma loved her tortellini alfredo! And what's a trip to the North End without a visit to Mike's Pastries? We bought cookies and canolis. Here, she is sharing a cookie with Papa.
She LOVED her canoli~a chocolate chip one. Yum!
Her favorite game is chasing Papa around the kitchen. Here's another video:

We watched "Finding Nemo" with her. We enjoyed it as much as she did! On Sunday, we took her to the mall. Papa HAD to take her to the Disney Store to buy her a Nemo! Of course, she woulnd't let me take her picture with Nemo. I guess she's tired of the 100+ flashes going off in her face since Friday. LOL But I did get one of her strolling through Macy's as she hugged Nemo.
Papa took her for a ride on the carousel. She loved it...until it was over. Then she cried and said, "Papa! Neigh!" (She thinks "neigh" is the name for a horse.) 

After Emma's nap, she hugged Papa and then we headed out to the backyard. 

Emma just said goodnight to her Mama, and she was sad when the call ended.
I'm not sure who had more fun: Emma, Giffy, or Papa!

I don't know who had more fun...Emma or you and Rick. What a memorable weekend you had. I love the picture of her crying when it was all over.

AWWWW Great weekend!!!
I am surprised you don't have snow yet! LOL
My in-laws lived in Bolton on Nashaway Road until a few years ago (you don't live in a blue saltbox, do you? :D) and they sometimes had snow at the end of Oct.
I am guessing a good time was had by all 3. :)
On our visits, we always went to eat Chinese in Cambridge and then ice-cream at Tuscaninis...yum!!!
