seven was one too few this week, folks.
i took the kids to my mom's from wednesday until sunday this week.
we had a blast and laughed a lot and made some lasting memories.
here are eight highlights.
1. scared out of my mind to make the 4 hour trip by myself with two kids.
it ended up being awesome.
they both fell asleep like 20 minutes in and slept the rest of the way.
and i accidentally made it in 3 and a half hours. i have NO idea how that happened.
miles is all "hey, i don't know you. and this is crazy."
2. oh there's sister/aunty.
totes normal for her.
3. on thursday we took miles to a little amusement park for kids, if you will, called happy hallow.
it was so fun and i can't wait til he's a year older and doesn't get as tired in the middle of the day.
i paid $5 for those pics and it was worth every penny.
4. oh hey, friday.
so glad you're over with.
that's all i have to say about that.
5. okay. so all we really wanted was a starbucks across the parking lot.
so we loaded the kids in the shopping carts and started walking, totally unaware of anything around us.
here we were in the middle of the street and our carts come to screeching halts.
cars are all around us waiting for us and we are just laughing so hard.
my mom was able to get hers out of the way, but mine wouldn't budge.
i was laughing so hard trying to explain to the waiting cars that we had accidentally left the target perimeters.
one guy was ticked at me and said "get a new cart!"
and i was like, "yo, dude. it's not the cart, fool!"
and then this nice man got out of his car and helped me carry my cart back over to the target side.
more to come on that.
7. and then we went home.
and miles fell asleep right away.
and then watched toy story on repeat three times in a row.
there is a snake in woody's boot, y'all. i promise. i heard it every hour.
and this is the kind of convo scooter and i have on a regular basis.
god bless the US!
8. and just for kicks and giggles....got a new print from yellow heart art.
sits right by my desk where i do all my designing.
also! i am over at beautifully rooted today talking about my favorite chicken salad.
