My Week(32) in iPhone Photos

Tons of photos comin’ attcha! Prepare yourselves!

Sunday:

I banished all the shoes to the back porch to try and get some of the patio dirt out of the house.

I made E go through my summer cookbooks & mark recipes he'd like to try

Bitey McBiterson

Monday:

I bought Little Evan a balloon as a "Thanks for behaving well even thought mommy is a freaking idiot" present. I lost my wallet (AGAIN) and dragged both kids all over creation looking for it. I found it.

Sad baby tears - don't worry, this was after I put a boob in her mouth & she stopped crying.

I own stretchy headbands to match any possible outfit.

We drove through downtown where some film company was making a zombie movie. I was disappointed we didn't see any zombies.

Tuesday:

Washing hands is the best part of using the potty.

I declared this the time out chair and used it. A lot.

Beautiful day for a walk. My favorite house in my neighborhood.

I'm so happy summer is here.

At Town Farm Organic to pick up our CSA share

Wednesday:

I acted fancy for a playdate at my house and made a fruit plate. My kid was STOKED.

Fat baby loves her blankie, even though it was 96 degrees.

As soon as Little Evan sees a cart like this at the store it is ALL OVER. He starts screaming for the "SEAT! SEAT!!!!"

This was the first time I've ever grilled anything myself. These brats were delicious.

Thursday:

I put her down next to the blanket on the left. WHO MOVED MY BABY?

Reading "Caps For Sale" to himself. "Red hat, blue hat, no no no, monkey AHAHA!"

I've been a spray painting fool when it comes to stuff for the patio.

AND NOW SHE'S SITTING UP TOO. STOP IT WITH THE GROWING UP.

Friday:

I am using the boppy the EXACT SAME WAY as I type this caption right now.

"Stop sitting on Caroline! That's your sister, not the dog!" - things I did not know I had to say to my child

BIKE BIKE BIKE BIKE. We're still working on the fine art of pedaling.

One last trip to the local nursery for a few more plants.

The name of that wine is "Relax". Enough said.

Saturday:

 

When you get up at 5:45, sometimes laying on the floor is necessary.

Despite the threat of rain we took advantage of Connecticut's Open House day & checked out Gillette Castle.

Happy baby is happy.

It’s been a week of ups and downs (and I don’t just mean the temperature) but it’s definitely ending on a high note with the castle visit – despite E’s job making him go in today. Boo. But it’s kind of cold and drizzling so at least we aren’t missing perfect boating weather. I would definitely call it excellent napping weather, so as soon as I can convince this baby to just STOP TRYING TO CRAWL for a few minutes I will be catching a few zzzz’s. Hope your weekend is full of fun and naps too!

Did you take any camera phone photos this week? Link up with one or lots using the linky below and grab the code (so it shows on your blog too!) over at Amy’s . It’s really fun!

    I grew up in CT. That house you took a picture of is my favorite, as well. :) Whenever we visited the town (we have relatives there), I’d ALWAYS watch for this house. :D

    Went to Gillette Castle, too. The guy was a genius & WAAAAY ahead of his time with his ingenious idea with the fire system. Collecting rainwater in cisterns to prepare for a case of fire? & using “icicles” that hung from the ceiling? BRILLIANT. & I LOVED the woodwork in the house. You don’t find that kind of work anymore.

    When I went, they closed the top floor to visitors because of a hazard. Is it open now, or still closed off?

      It’s sadly still closed off. And we only got to see the house because the toddler was starting to melt down so we’re planning to go back (wearing nice sturdy shoes) and do some hiking around the grounds. I’m going to post some pictures tomorrow!

      The lady who owns that green house is really really nice. I bought a bedroom set from her at a yard sale a few years ago – beautiful art deco antiques – and she let me see the inside. It’s GORGEOUS.

      • Meagan says:

        Aww, darn. Pictures of the view (that they have on display) just don’t do it justice. The pond is beautiful, & so is the river if you follow the path down. Can you tell I just love the place? LOL. You’re making me just slightly homesick. :P I used to live in Vernon, btw. Home of Fox Hill Tower.

        Ohhh, I can just imagine. The porch looks like it’s home to a great deal of outdoor parties (or it used to be). Love that porch. :)

  2. Oh my gosh…the boppy & his tiny computer?!?!?!?! I just died a little. Wow.

    its okay that i think the picture of e trying to ride little carolyn is hilarious, right? cuz she didnt get hurt or anything!? :)

  4. Londonmum says:

    i love seeing your “week in” photos. Looks like you had a really lovely week and you are right, Caroline is growing up way too fast. I also would like to live in that house in your neighbourhood (or yours now that you have the patio ;-) ) Enjoy your next week x

  5. Michelle says:

    Oh, I wish I’d have thought of going to Gilette Castle yesterday! It might have made the day about, oh, 1000 times better. The rain does crazy things to my kid. (who let Godzilla into the house again?!) But I’ll have to remember that for when hubby finishes his thesis…he’s a week or two off from that.

    (BTW, I think we’re practically neighbors… We’re in CT, too. :) )

    Evan’s tantrum picture is hilarious!

    All of your “we’re obviously hanging out on our awesome new patio but you can’t see it yet” pics are such a tease! This week I am totally stealing your cookbook post-iting idea, your fruit in a chip/salsa plate idea, and Evan’s boppy use idea! Thanks :)
