The Everyday Stuff

September 13, 2012

I have a feeling I’ll blog a lot more often in the winter. Because when it’s SO beautiful outside, all we do is soak up the sun and play outside. Although, our lives will probably be way more boring in the winter, so you lucky blog readers will get to read ALLLL about what books I’ve been reading and how I’m learning to crochet or something… I know you’re so excited. But really, there are a few projects and books I’ve set aside for the winter. I feel like I’ll need something to look forward to when it’s getting dark at 4 p.m. and our only activity is to go to the parking garage and watch the big kids ride their bikes. I’ll stop. This could turn negative quickly.

Anywhooo here’s what we’ve been up to this week. Coop enjoyed some Sister Act, he still loves his shades, we had our last splash pad fun of the summer, and he got a haircut. The only way I could get him to stay still while I cut his hair was to give him cookies. And then hair would get everywhere, so he basically ate hairy cookies. Poor kid. I keep spotting fly aways that I missed… Coop is going to be “that kid” with the janky haircuts.

Cambridge Commons was way cool. The park was full of fun water tables and sand toys. And then we took a little history lesson and saw where George Washington gathered his troops during the American Revolutionary War. I tried to explain to Coop that it was more common for men to have pony tails back then, and that Dude was just trying to bring it back, but I’m not sure if he understood.

We came across Cooper Square on the way to a fabric store that the stroller didn’t so much fit into… that was fun.

One morning, Cooper found a picture of Jordan and I, and Deuce was front and center. It was the first time Coop has seen a picture of him since we moved, and he acted so sad about it! I’m sure it was more of a “hey I like that furry thing and it was fun to pull his tail” kind of thing, but still. And then, as if Allison just knew that had happened in the morning, we got a stuffed animal Deuce in the mail that afternoon!! Cooper loves it. He gives Deuce kisses all day long.

It really is great up here, but we have our moments. And when we have our moments, we drive to the nearest Chick Fil A (30 minutes away), and we have a little piece of home. That fixes most things :)

Or we see smiley faces in random things and it makes us laugh. Or maybe just I do that. Am I so weird or what??

One day we had a traumatic grocery store experience, so we ate cookies the whole way home. #momoftheyear. But there are always sweet, beautiful things in the midst of not-so-lovely things… The sun was setting on our way in from Iowa last weekend, and the pic below that is just a fun thing that we get to see all the time up here! I love it.

There ya have it folks. That was a bunch of stuff that doesn’t have any correlation to each other. That’s how we roll around here :)
