Mix and Unmatch

How can you not want to hangout with this kid? Look at that smile. We had a very eventful day today. Our day was full of fun with a BFF, lunch, library, a little rest time and some crafty wonder. Thurston enjoys mixing all of the colors. He really LOVES brown, so he is cool with the fact that mixing most colors makes poop brown. Oh the fun.

And the completed project:


This little project is going to take me a little longer than I anticipated. I bought the bigger template thinking I would be able to finish the smaller one in no time. Now I have this big one that is kind of intimidating. Wish me luck. I wonder if I can get it done before the baby is born?

Today we made pumpkin bread. He is such a big helper. He wants to do everything by himself. Sometimes a little too much. I accidentally made too much batter for our loaf size pan. Then I added too much batter to the pan. It took a long time for the bread to cook and the outside turned out a leeetle crunchy. Ah well.

Get it started.

How many people watch Dr. Oz? Too many. I understand the need to better educate people about diet, exercise, illness, etc. But I do feel that the approach of the show often comes across like much of a scare tactic, like if you don't do THIS-you will die. Sort of. You get what I am saying.

In other news, yesterday I took a walk and took photos with Instagram. I am semi-ashamed of the love I have for the filters on that thing. I am not much of a photographer but I certainly understand the art and I feel a little bit like a cheater when I use Instagram but it's fun. So, there you have it.

 Yesterday, we built a tent and read a lot of books and watched 15 minutes of Horton. He also had to eat and drink milk in the tent. It was a fun time. 

I can't remember exactly when this video was taken...but here it's some good ol' fashion fun. Please do not try this at home.

And I leave you with a little song. Oldie but goodie.

Plenty more to talk about.

Stay tuned to future blog posts. Staying home with Thurston this past week was awesome. We went to the zoo, children's museum, played with friends, went to the park many times, played in the pool, had many picnics, did arts and crafts, and then on Friday he got to go to daycare. Thurston loves his daycare and I was able to have a little time to myself before going back to my internship. So, it was a win-win.

BUT I am back. It will happen slowly and carefully. Stay tuned.

Tuck it away.

On the way to Fresno via the sleeper was quite fun!!

Got to see good friend's play good music!

A peek into my sleeper car...every girl needs a trashy magazine on a long trip.

I have to say I had every intention of taking a ton of pictures while in Fresno. I think I did just the opposite. I think I need a point and shoot camera. It's time. My big ol' Cannon is great, don't get me wrong. I still plan on using it but when it comes to quick pics to capture a moment-I hate lugging it around. It's too big. I have learned that I never take pictures anymore because I have to carry it around. I need to find a middle ground kind of camera. I don't want to spend a lot at all but I want decent photos. Not looking for brilliant photography, just the ability to capture the laughs.
