Seriously where did the 2nd half of April go to? I didn't quite believe it when i visited the blog to grab a link for someone on something and realized my last post was April 15.
Here's a little bit of what we've been up to...
*these are all a mix of iphone pics, point n shoot pics, and "Big" camera pics! ;)
We got away mid-month to Tybee Island for a little wine festival, withouthekids(!!!). We lived it up while we were there, stopping at what turned out to be a FAB local recomendation for lunch (we felt like official foodies), and then touring Savannah the next day...
We had our first real beach day (or afternoon i should say) of the season. Bring on summer and endless days of this - the boys & I can't think of a better way to spend our time off!
We spent the day at Animal Kingdom (first for all of us!), rode Noah's new fave the Dino ride, & then met mickey (after being REALLY rained on) -- Mickey's keeping his distance after Noah had a freaked-out reaction to being so close to him. ;)
We lost our first tooth...
We had our forehead (N) glued back together (last friday) after a coffee-table collision...
...1. UF mascots on campus. 2. Our own rowdy reptile cheering section! 3. Evan's first Gator Basketball game. 4. Noah and my dad. 5. Mid-week McD's drivethru for a diet coke (me) & Cookies (boys). 6. What N looks like after eating a chocolate chip cookie on his own in the car. ;) 7. Look Momma, It's a hat! 8. "Hungry-Potomas" Playing. 9. Antique Market Morning Me. 10. Sunset on the beach Friday night.
Here we go again. I'm loving that posting these is prompting me to get the pics OFF my phone in a timely manner - and I even ended up using five pics from my phone for last week's PL spread (out of 12 total photos for the week). >> I'm officially caught up on project life - just need to find some time to photo and blog it to share here!
...1. A walk on the beach before dinner last Sat night (I'm trying to include more of Eric and I in the PL album!). 2. Sandy path. 3. Lunch this week 2x: strawberries, avocado, cucumber, & gorgonzola. 4. Eric was in shock when i ordered a beer (I'm such a wine person!). 5. Beach football. 6 Toby turns 11. 7. Noah's cute alphabet flashcards - I love that he calls this one "hungry-potomas". 8. Trophy day on the last day of the winter YMCA Bball league. 9. Sushi lunchdate. 10. Noah rocking HIMSELF to sleep one night this week when it took me too long to get there. :) 11. Time out for hitting Evan. I think I was texting this one to the hubs! 12. The birdfeeder N made at school this week. I'm pretty sure a racoon stole it off our tree last night... oops. 13. My coffee combo. 14. Blooms in our backyard (SO early this year).
LOVING: Winter walks on the beach. We've stopped off three times in the past week, and I'm not going to lie - that's one of the biggest bonuses of living where we do.
snapped from my phone:
HEARING: Noah ask "What was dat?!" at least 3 times a day. ENT surgery has literally opened up his ears and it's kinda amazing. My favorite was about a day or two post surgery when he must have heard the "whooooosh" from my phone sending a text for the very first time and looked at me like "what the heck?!". :)
I've seen this done in various formats on other blogs - and in an effort to blog more than once every other week ;) I'm thinking I might start dumping some 'phone faves' onto the blog at the end of each week.
So here we go...
1. crazy cold temps to start the week off (our flowers finally died for the season). 2. noah's beloved "mcqueen ka-chow" collection. 3. toby on his way to a much needed haircut. 4. after school beach stop to run off some energy and feed the birds. 5. mid-week me. 6. aqua toes, seashells, and sand. 7. blue skies ahead. 8. one day i'm know i'm going to miss pushing this damn "car cart" around and look longingly at the (much younger than me) momma with 2 adorable boys in it that she gets to push around... 9. N & i riding the "zoo train". 10. next up for my nails. 11. penguin exhibit at the zoo for ev's kindy field trip. 12. noah on the "elephant" - his fave!
