Robots, sunflowers and running – oh my! This feels like the last week of summer to me. Not because it’s going to suddenly get cold but because this week I have BlogHer (THIS WEEK) and then adjusting to a new life with E on shift work (7 days a week, 12 hours a day, no days off). So there won’t be very many more boat trips or family zoo days or…well jeez, now I’m depressed. I guess I’ll have to just spend as much time at the lake as possible before the gorgeous New England fall hits. (And you know I’ve had a pretty good summer if I’m thinking about fall in a pleasant way.)
Robot Evan is fueled by milk and hummus
Caroline didn’t really understand the concept of all the presents being for someone else
The pink ones were the best, but the salted caramel weren’t bath either
New favorite way to get 15 minutes of silence
Scoping out the frozen desserts at BJ’s
Still recovering from the weekend
Library play time
The track has lights but isn’t lit. I don’t know where I’m going to run once it gets dark at 5 pm.
Too cool for school
Improvised dinner ended up being a hit
Turns out Caroline is perfectly happy to look at her OWN face on my phone, she doesn’t need to see other babies
We discovered Imagination Movers and she is obsesssssed
For today’s episode of musical beds, Caroline chose Evan’s
I dropped my kids off at a friend’s house which meant she was babysitting SIX KIDS all afternoon (ONE was hers). I owe her a bottle of wine.
Pretending to be a penguin at the penguin exhibit
Buckets are so hot right now
She’s so fashionable she wears my heels to bed
Couch naps for everyone!
Tomorrow we’re going out on the boat, Monday is packing and cleaning, Tuesday I pick up my mother-in-law and then Wenesday is NYC! I’m sorry sorry sorry that I can’t stop talking about it. I realize almost no one cares, unless they are going too. I also realize BlogHer is not the be-all end-all of blogging, or conferences, or anything at all, but it’s hard not to get caught up in the excitement and hype. Bear with me one more week and I promise it will be all gingers all the time.
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!
