Photo Dump

I just realized every one of these pictures is either of my kids or my food. 


Here's what we've been up to lately!

For starters, Owen has pretty much given up his nap. He does sleep 2ish days out of the week, but I know that won't last forever. The other day, after his "rest time" in his room, he was zonked out on the family room rug within 5 minutes. Why couldn't he just do that in his room...?

Shopping with the boys is always an adventure. This day I caved and got them their own Icees. Very exciting. It was the most blissful Target trip I've had with them in tow. 

Another way to entertain them: visiting the "big ants" lobsters at the grocery store. Add a free sugar cookie from the bakery and they're happy campers!

We spent lots of time with the cousins last week. Trevor asked me to take a picture of him cuddling Owen. 

Lexie + Austin = BFFs

Highlight of last weekend: I took O on a date to see the new Ice Age movie. He did soooo good! Granted, I kept the popcorn/Icee/sour candies coming. We had lots of fun together and it was very special time, just the two of us! Much more enjoyable than his first movie experience!

The other day I made my favorite banana bread recipe and added chocolate chips and walnuts. And smeared it with Nutella. It didn't last long, but man, it was good while it lasted. 

Since Owen starts preschool on Monday (!!!!!!!), I took him to get a professional hair cut (not a #6 buzz cut from Mom). He flipped a lid last time we went to a salon (the annoyingly expensive one for kids, no less) so I was a little hesitant. But off we went to Great Clips, and he did fabulous! He was so still and polite and cute. I was so proud of him that we went to get ice cream at Sonic afterwards. We hung out in the car and listened to music while we ate. What a sweetie. 

Today we needed something indoors to do to beat the 11something degree heat. Nana joined us at the mall, we got Starbucks, walked around. It was such a nice Friday morning.

Tonight: popcorn & movie night!

Pictures from our vacation up next! And Monday, pictures of Owen's first day of preschool! Yes, my baby is starting preschool. I don't want to talk about it.

The preschool thing is nuts! But, i think it's harder on us than it is the kiddos. Hope it goes well! Can't wait for the update!
