Happy Thursday! Which feels like Friday and it's driving me crazy! This whole week has been so weird. Not bad, just weird. I have been off a day all week. I went to go write in my journal last night and I saw that I had written Thursday... not Wednesday. I go back pages from earlier this week and I did it on everyday. I think it's due to the fact that Dan was out late Sunday night doing some church business, so we didn't quite have our usual night preparing for the next week ahead. It threw me off from day one. Haha! So I am excited for the weekend to come and to get a new fresh week underway.
I also noticed that I have a file sitting on my computer full of just random pictures. It's been a while since I have done a random blog post of everyday life. I figured that I better do one so the pictures don't get too over whelming to the point where I don't blog them.
I like these blog posts and Dan tells me they are his favorite too. So here you are sweetheart, for when your are taking a break from work and reading the family blog!
Lot's of pictures!
Walks to the park
The paint was homemade sidewalk chalk paint. It was really easy and fun to make!
It actually worked out super well! It showed up really well and Ju Ju's had fun painting the driveway. We drew daddy pictures and wrote him messages for when he came home.
And of course played hop scotch
Just one night feeling extra clingy to this little man... no, not Owen being clingy, but me. Haha Owen was fast asleep in his crib, but I remember so clearly thinking that if I don't pick this boy up and hold him my heart might explode. I love a good snuggle with this boy, it doesn't happen often enough!
June had woken up a little too earlier, and I was doing something, can't remember what, but I came back to the living room and she was out cold with her hands holding up her pants.
This girl LOVES oranges. She can pretty much polish one off on her own.
One morning we shared a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch on the floor. One of my favorite cereals and starting to become Junes too.
June loves to draw and color. She is learning to draw shapes and color them in. She was particularly excited when she came running into the room to show me this picture. She told me to hold onto it forever.
The Older Owen gets the more fun these two get to have together. Bath time usually ends with the bath room floor soaked in water and bubbles everywhere, but they have so much fun.
Our usual swim of the day
Owen sleeping comfortably... or not.
Playing at the play place one afternoon... So we have been changing up our schedule recently. It's been a weird change due to the fact that I have had the same basic routine for the past year and a half, but with Owens 2 nap schedule and June not having naps anymore, I switched our schedule up so that we could use every hour of the day more affectively. It's worked for the most part. I am still working out the kinks.. haha just in time for Owen to go down to one nap. Perfect. No, but to be honest, I am really looking forward to Owen going down to one nap. Our mornings will be more available...
Why I bring this up, is because our we were at the play place at 1pm in the afternoon, and it was mostly empty. Due to the fact that most children are home sleeping. With Owen's afternoon nap not until 2 we have an extra hour or so after lunch to play!
He's such a chunk. and SO HAPPY!
He also wants to walk so bad. He is always up on all fours like this. I am thinking he will be walking sooner rather than later... but I said that with June and she didn't walk until 14 months. So time will tell!
Playtime at the library. This was a special library day! It was fun, but we didn't sing nearly as many songs and thats Jun'e favorite part! As much as the parachute was fun, I hope they continue to sing songs as well.
June has learned how to climb into the car, get in her seat and buckle up. She is doing really well with it, and is close to getting the bottom buckled. This is a HUGE help. I can open the door and then go to the other side to put Owen in, and have her getting in buckling up! I don't know how I will ever do three! I guess someday we will find out!
It was bedtime and he played hard that day
He woke up a few times like this. Still happy but very stuck. His thighs were tricky getting back through those bars. We have lowered his crib since then and he doesn't seem to get too stuck. Now he has troubles sitting back down once he pulls himself up. I remember going through this same stage with June!
June spiked a fever Friday afternoon. She was fine that morning playing at the park, but we got home and she was feeling pretty bad. So she slept most of the day. We weren't able to attend our ward pool party which was sad, but it was fun just being home with my family.
We had tickets to the Perot Museum "Extra" dinosaur exhibit, so we thought we better use them before the expire. It has been well worth having season passes to the museum and having these "extra" exhibits to look at has been fun this summer.
Geology lesson 101
Saturday night, we had an hour or so before dinner and so we made homemade snow. It actually worked and was fun to play with... Dan was loving it! It made me laugh how excited he gets over these kind of home activities!
Just a random night after work. Playing in the playroom, and everyone tackling daddy. Oh they love him so much!!
We were at the store the other day and I saw in a clearance section 8 sparkle nail polishes for $1.50. I had to get them for June. She loves to paint fingernails and the glitter stuff is perfect for her. She wanted to paint my nails after baths one night. I get why the stuff was on clearance. First of all 3 bottles were dried out, and then the others were soooo gooey. June didn't care! She loved it!
We celebrated one of our best little friends birthdays.
The attempt at giving hugs! Love these little girls. Now I just need to find a group of boys for OD!
Ah! At the end! Life is simple but good.
