I'll begin with my big blunder this past week. I've only emptied our vacuum a handful of times - it is usually something Adam takes care of. The other day I was fiddling with it, trying to remember how it opens as I was walking to the garage. I pressed a button thinking it would open the top. Nope. It opened the bottom and all of the contents fell out on top of Declan's head. He thought it was the greatest thing since Popsicles and immediately started playing with all of the dirt that quite literally fell in his lap. Luckily my camera was nearby. But, even if it wasn't I probably would've walked to get it. I mean the damage was done. It was an early bath day at our house.
Ugh - so gross. And I just finished vacuuming.
While we're around the house, I thought this was cute. Lexi is starting to discover small spaces. I love this stage.
Daddy and Lexi watched the Draft on the iPad
We had lots of fun family time this past week. First a visit from Aunt Emily and Uncle Jeff last Sunday.
Unfortunately we had to say good bye to Mimi on Tuesday :( Declan is starting to handle it better. Usually we have some kind of crazy tantrum after she leaves. I thought it was going to be really bad this time, but instead of a tantrum, there were lots of questions. I'll take lots of questions over a tantrum any day of the week. He kept repeating "Mimi driving to see Papa?" And I would reply "Yes, Mimi lives in Arizona with Papa, and Declan lives in California with Mommy and Daddy, and Lexi". I love watching him process information. In fact, I am really loving this age right now. It is so much fun!
We also saw Adam's side of the family quite a bit last week too. We squeezed in a couple of fun pool days at the Welk...our new favorite hang out (when the weather is good).
So proud of himself after showing Daddy how he can swim
This little lady just loves to swim! I see some lessons in her future. :)
The big kid
We had a fun play date with Logan and Jen at PlayWerx. Jen and I were comparing photography notes most of the time, so I didn't really snap a lot of pics. But, this was Lexi's first time there as a walker, and she LOVED it! A whole new world opens up when you aren't asleep in the Ergo.
We hit up a couple of fun birthday parties! First Gracie Jo's 5th at Pump It Up -
Quite frankly, I love these places!
The beautiful birthday girl!
He loves cake...almost as much as I do!
And we helped Luke celebrate his 2nd Birthday at Liberty Park -
Isla and Dec catching up
Isla and the birthday boy!
Isla was nice enough to share her cupcake with Lexi!
And I think that about wraps up our week!
