Today started with this.


And ended with this.

In between were sweet Caleb chomps, grunts, screams, chortles and smiles.


Some messy Mason faces, rolling on the floor giggles, a few episodes of Magic School Bus, and some puzzles in the evening.

We had a morning of productivity, some stolen moments of pleasure reading, a few errands (to Mason, a trip to Trader Joe’s means a banana to eat in the cart, stickers at checkout, and the secret but rarely fulfilled hope of a lollipop on the way out the door) ((Today that last wish was granted))



We ate dinner…

Read to Mason, who’s current favorites include Dr. Seuss and Eric Carle, and rocked the little one to sleep.


Now Mark and I are in the living room.  Creme filled cookies to snack on, Mark’s newest bread experiment cooling in the kitchen (Blueberry Walnut Bread) and an old episode of How I Met Your Mother playing as I write this post.

And these are the things that put my mind at ease and fill my heart.  Nothing groundbreaking. No special trips.  No particularly noteworthy adventures.

But man I had a great day!

It was slow paced, it was relaxing, we all did our own thing at points and we all shared some snuggles, some meals and some laughs.  We got out of the house for a bit, but we hung out at home most of the time.

I could be happy with a few more days like this.

With moments like these to serve as bookends, it’s hard to ask for more. 😉


The Natural History Museum

Posted on

For the last couple of days Mason has been requesting to go to the Natural History Museum, a fun and educational spot in town for him to play, be outside, and see exhibits. Today we packed up our lunch and finally made it to the museum.
Here you’ll see Mason trying to feed a stuffed grizzly bear a fish, our lunch, a close up of Mason bird watching, Caleb catching up on his reading , and playing at the park. Enjoy!
