Our Weekend

May 26, 2015

Where did our weekend even go?!

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend, and spent a few moments thinking of those who gave their lives for our freedom.

We spent out weekend and the unofficial summer kickoff out in Colorado with my brother-in-law and his family. The five hour drive turned out to be quite entertaining. I mean, when you point out every [like literally every] single car on the road, get amped up on s’mores oreos, and crash out with a blankie covering your face, it’s just a rush of pure entertainment.

What we thought was going to be a¬†fun weekend at the Cabin, fishing and bonfiring, turned in to a weekend of sweat and fireplaces. It was like winter! We were so shocked, and kind of bummed. Locked up in a cabin with a rambunctious two year old can drive ya a little crazy. But, we put some tape rolls and air hockey paddles to use and were able to keep Logan pretty satisfied. And in the few moments of non-rain we were able to find a few fuzzy caterpillars on the deck. Logan would beg to “hold me” [really meaning hold him] and get so excited to have his little fuzzy friend crawling on his palm. We took a good long walk too and picked some flowers, the whole time Logan kept saying “brrrr, home”.

Goldfish, chocolate milk, yogurt, “pie-apple”, and veggie sticks also kept the toddler monster at bay.

Visiting my brother-in-law at the fire station was part of our pit stop too. And when we thought Logan would love seeing the firetruck, all he cared about was the two little firefighter badge stickers he got, and where on his shirt he was going to put them. Uncle Nick tried to show him the lights, the horn, and even offered to take him for a ride, and “no, no, no” was all Logan kept saying. But seeing Logan hang out with his Uncle was cute enough for us.

The weekend might not have turned out as planned, but hanging out with family, sleeping in the same room as Logan and listening to him sing himself to sleep, eating waaaay to many peanuts, lounging on the couch, and just enjoying time together, was all worth it.

Oh, my, the world of a talking two year old. Logan is starting to become a little mocking-jay. Literally repeating every word I say now. And he’s starting to use those words more frequently and build his own sentences and thoughts. The whole process is mind blowing to me, because it seems like overnight he’s […]

Stuck in a rut

May 13, 2015

I need some help. This poor little bloggy has been through the wringer. Which, is inevitable I think as life is continuously changing. But, it started out as a daily food journal, then branched in to cooking, and fitness, then being pregnant, and now having a baby, but I feel recently that it’s got not […]

Trail Mix Whole Wheat Banana Bread

May 12, 2015

Snackity-snack-snack I love snacks and I think Logan does too. We could literally just go all day munching on random things here and there and never sit down for an actual meal. We’re always hungry and always in the pantry. I will say that I try to keep our snacks well balanced [and for myself […]

Mother’s Day Weekend

May 11, 2015

It’s still so weird that this is a holiday for me now. But I love it more than any other holiday now, because I see the value and honor of being a parent. And, of course, each year Logan is one year older, so it starts to get funner and funner. We had a fun […]

Staying Organized

May 4, 2015

I’m in desperate need of your tips and tricks to staying organized. I’ve never been one to use my phone very much as a to-do list, or use the calendar in my phone either. I’m a very visual person. I like to write things down and cross them off. I’m totally obsessed with my Erin […]
