There was some celebratory hanging out for the new found warmer weather.
I must admit, I was really happy to see 60 degrees. It was completely disheartening when it started snowing again a few days later.
There was some shopping for new play things.
Okay, not really. But this boy is obsessed with all things transportation including
"big tractors!" You can tell by the smile on his face that he was enamored to be sitting on one. He specifically asked for the one "with a cup holder" 'cause you know...priorities.
There was some Spring cleaning
There was death by bunny.
At least this picture would leave you to believe so. I promise you he asked to be there. Don't worry in the end it was all better....
There was race car driving.
Whenever we go to the grocery store he insists on the race car. I read a rather informative article about the rate of children falling out of carts and I am at peace with his decision to ride in the
The ice cream shops re-opened.
This is huge stuff where I live. There are quite a few homemade ice cream shops where I live. They are little ice cream stands some on the side of the road, some are actual shops. They normally close down for the winter sometimes around October and I love it when they re-open for summer. My favorite shop (pictured) serves soft butter pecan ice cream. It's the only reason I agreed to move here.
Baby's first hair cut
I can't believe I did the one thing I didn't want to do. I cut my baby's hair!!! Well, not me- Melody did. And let me tell you- we held hands the entire time. I think I need to dedicate a whole post to this monumental occasion. This is the after. Not too bad, right?!
There was some driving.
We celebrated Resurrection Sunday.
Don't they look handsome? I'm not exactly sure why he's protesting this picture but sadly it's the only picture I got of him in his Sunday best. Boys.
There were dinner dates.
My husband's April and May schedule is pretty busy. But so is July and August. Whatever- it's the nature of his job. So my son and I get lots and lots of mommy & me dinner dates. Actually, I was just too lazy to cook on those days so I happily let someone else do the cooking.
We had a mini photo shoot by the tree.
The trees "downtown" have lights on them (year 'round) that he loves. So one evening I took him for a walk there while the trees were lit and he was blown away. I convinced him to take "a" picture in front of one of them and it turned into a mini photo shoot. Now only if I had my big girl camera instead of just my iPhone.
There were playground protests.
This is a daily occurrence when I pick him up from school. I'm not sure whether I should be happy he likes it so much or sad that he doesn't want to come home with us. He runs to us with open arms- happy to see us. Then he tries to lead us to the playground so he can stay longer.
There were trips to the firehouse that ended in donuts.
Whenever he gets to enjoy the finer things in life (whatever that may be to a toddler) he says "I'm a lucky boy!" I think it's absolutely adorable and I need to get that on video.
There was some Mouseke-watching.
This is his absolute favorite show and will not watch anything else. He asks everyday on the car ride home if we can watch. I have 5 episodes recorded on my DVR at all times. So do my parents. It's that serious.
And lastly. I kind of want tickets to this....
