Gloomy days, followed by rain, some sunshine and unseasonable low temperatures, even for Chicago, has us well me in the dumps lately. Thankfully sunny days are ahead and Lew is on vacation for a week. Just us chilling out as a family. Can't wait. 7 year anniversary coming up, father's day, and we are headed to VA for my sister's birthday. Buck up girly, your days are getting brighter.
What makes it all better? Splashing in the sink with bubbles. Seeing a one year old's cheesy grin as he giggles away. Trying ice cream sandwiches for the very first time and throwing in the towel a couple bites in because it's just too cold. A morning run with the littlest dude because he is always up. Playing in the train drawer just to be that much closer to your toys. And of course sitting in Mommy's rocking chair, watching a movie.
Going on a pajama walk with the hottest part of the day is at 6:30 pm. Creating a dino sailboat, that will of course take us to dino island. Adorned with stickers and all. Showing off an amazing dino collection, and making a video about all the dinos names and what they do. Totally awesome. My little paleontologist. Snuggles and sleeping with daddy after a long day of bike riding and enjoying one of those sunshiny days. Sending Pape a picture of his grandson, who loves to see underwater in the bath. Melts my heart. And just because, curly mess of hair on mommy, not sure where the curls came from. Banana ice cream. Yes. Banana chocolate ice cream. So delicious and all natural. Yummy.
Off to get productive on that birthday quilt I am making for my sister's birthday. Hope I can finish on time! Happy weekending friends.
