Summer Days

Well I haven’t blogged in awhile b/c we have been busy!  I have been working on final assignments and presentation. Andrew has also been keeping me super busy! I did manage to check one thing off the to do list-Pantry cleanup! We love our new big pantry,but it can get disorganized quickly. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t the best.

Before:

The candy basket has been growing and growing! I throughout a lot and put the rest in a bag to take to school for my treat box.

I had the GENIUS idea of hanging all our bags in this dead space on the wall! LOVE IT!

I plan on getting some decorative hooks, but this will work for the time being.

I moved Duncan’s bowls so that it wasn’t the first thing you see.

Yesterday we took Andrew for his first MOVIE!! We were all so excited!! The whole process is a long story, but it was memorable. LOL!

Before we left:

On the way…How I regret giving him this juice!

We arrived a little early and we decided to stop by the ATM, so Nick could deposit his check. As soon as we left the bank it started pouring and storming! There were no close parking spots, so we had to walk in the down pour! I was SOAKED! I even had an umbrella, but my pants were drenched from the knees down. We made it in and much to our surprise Andrew got in for FREE! I had no clue! A woman proceeded to scream very loud as soon as we walked in the door b/c it thundered very loud. Andrew looked at her like she was crazy for being so scared. We stopped for popcorn and drinks. As we handed our tickets over I noticed booster seats! GENIUS! We grabbed one up and headed in. Andrew’s eyes were lit up with excitement! The theater was packed and the previews quickly began. I only got 1 picture! So sad!

After the previews they played a Toy Story short film. As I have said before, Andrew is Toy Story’s biggest fan! He kept looking at me and smiling! 3/4of the way through Cars 2 Andrew wanted to sit in my lap. I figured he was getting tired. Let me back up…Andrew had a sippy cup full of half juice half water on the way and then a BIG cup in the theater. I didn’t even realize he drank that much until it was TOO late. In my lap I noticed a very warm feeling. He had leaked through his diaper on me! I sat him back in his seat b/c I knew the movie was almost over. He sat for a little while and then got back up and stood in the aisle with his hands over his eyes. Oh no! He always hides behind something when he goes number 2 and there was nothing to hide behind. I suddenly smelled it and realized this was no ordinary stinky diaper. We ended leaving a few mins. early b/c it was leaking out of his diaper. We changed him into new clothes in the car and headed home. Never a dull moment! Sorry so long, but I want to remember this memorable day! HA!

Overall we had a great time and Andrew keeps talking about the movie. I will remember next time to bring water only! Whenever he drinks too much juice it upsets his stomach. I should have known better!

Anyway, today we played outside while Nick was cutting grass.

We came in and put Andrew down for a nap and enjoyed a quiet lunch. Then it was on to clean up the garage for the upcoming 4th of July Cookout!

Eating healthy has not gone so well this past week! Today I am right on track!

Breakfast: 100 calorie English Muffin with thin layer of crunchy PB and almond granola with a side of grapes.

Lunch was a ham and cheese sandwich, handful of wheat thins, and an orange.

We are going to enjoy sometime at home and then head to the pre-fourth fireworks with my parents! Have a good one!

I was wondering how it went! At least he sat through it!! That's too funny, Cash hides too. That's how we know he's going. haha! With a 2 year old, you don't think you need extra clothes, but you NEVER know!!
